* gerrit mails decision (Bjoern / Kendy)
+ find out how many subscribers on the dev list (Kendy)
+ 598 full mails and 186 digest guys
+ Proposed compromise: (decide on it next time)
+ build a daily digest of submitted patches -> dev list
+ with commit messages, authors, links etc.
+ turn other notifications off
+ better document the gerrit mail / notification settings
+ encourage people who want to see everything to do that.

+ try next time to fuse a hangout + the existing dial-in
AI: + send gmail contact details to Michael to build a circle (All interested)
* Scattered dependent packages issues (Bjoern)
+ minor LibreOffice updates often require a slew of
other minor package updates around the wpd* set
+ do we have any visibility into if this might
+ no good ideas how to solve it
+ for SUSE (Petr)
+ we build them bundled for older products
+ don't have big problems updating the set otherwise
+ could use the bundled versions, but against Debian policy (Bjoern)
+ could ask for exceptions for wpd* - unlikely to work well
+ could fix by not updating requirements in configure (Petr)
+ all ABI back-compatible within the series (Michael)
=> recommend to keep binary compat in the major series after x.y.2
and stick with old versions in releases (if possible)
+ if not possible, mail Bjoern.
** Hard Hacks - re-visit (Joel / Bjoern)
+ lots of progress - but mostly by fixing MABs
+ calc slot 'open' for weeks.
+ QA call mostly ok with sunsetting it, did it's job
for it's time (Bjoern)
+ QA team has got bigger, and has been fixing prioritisation
which does something similar (Joel)
+ The new 'need-advice' keyword helps the QA <-> Developer
communication around hard (to confirm) bugs.
* Certification Program (Stephan/Kendy/Bjoern)
+ discussion about certified developer logo, do we have one ? (Stephan)
+ need to send certificates out.
* QA request - for areas to test (Joel)

within the series, work pending there.
