* QA update (Joel)
+ working on analysing minor release bugs (Joel)
+ 50% of issues were not minor release bugs
Ubuntu released with 22.214.171.124 - and can't go and update
the version every.
+ everyone reports against the ver. they're using.
+ some soul searching as to how to do better
+ issues with extensions
+ hard for QA to tell if the bugs are ours or not
+ if the change is a regression, and the reason is not
well-known: documented API change / stlport issue etc.
+ is the bug suitably concrete / filed by an ext'n
developer / expert
=> is our bug, leave it open
+ otherwise close: not-our-bug
+ is there any way to reliably contact extension authors (Thorsten)
+ no ! and 90 bugs vs. ext'ns that are not ours (Joel)
AI: + connect Joel with Andreas to get contact details (Thorsten)
+ nice mockups from Robinson for better version info:
+ Tollef - suggested creating a new bugzilla (on fdo?)
+ under very early stage consideration
+ several more bugs opened than closed
* Release Engineering update (Petr)
+ 3.6.7 schedule - deadline: June 24th for rc1
+ 4.0.3 rc2 status
+ one potential blocker - search always case sensitive
+ fixed already; but a regression since 4.0.3
+ thus more serious than a normal issue
+ do tag now & start builds again
+ approval from Caolan, Fridrich, Norbert => do 4.0.3rc3
+ stick with a similar timeline ?, slip 2 days
+ 4.1 - feature-freeze: ~two weeks out: May 20th
+ Alpha 1 from Monday(ish) that looks good of 4.1
+ to do build / packaging testing / etc.

+ missing a UX guy.
* New committer added
+ Khaled Hosney - Harfbuzz hero most welcome.
* GSOC update (Cedric)
+ need to start rating student proposals *now* we need an answer
for how many amazing vs. acceptable proposals we have to bid for
a dual slot count on Monday.
+ last year students could do up-to-twenty applications, this year
only five => few fishing applications, more real.
+ then later we go through a further ranking process - to select
the best students
+ May 27th - they'll know.

+ next batch of developers for certification
+ no objections
