Apologies - I completely forgot to send this last week:
+ Cedric, David, Andras, Christian, Astron, Markus, Michael M, Miklos,
Lionel, Stephan, Caolan, Kendy, Adam, Bjoern, Jacobo, Tor
* Completed Action Items
+ add slides to https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Marketing/Events/Fosdem2014/talks
[ volunteer to add thumbnails appreciated ;-].
* Pending Action Items:
+ GSOC mentors - prune / remove already done ideas from each side (All)
+ need design for copying styles between templates (Cor Nouws/other UX?)
[ Astron made mockup, discussed with Cor, but not published yet ]
+ look into non-functioning 'install' button in update dialog (Kendy / Andras)
[ Kendy has security concerns around downloading & executing pieces here
not a trivial fix. Signing / build verification discussion stalled.
Investigation ongoing. ].
+ Online Help needs update to match current behavior (Help -> Check for Updates -> Help)
AI + File an MAB and loose it here (Kendy)
* Release Engineering update (Christian)
+ 4.1.5 RC3 status
+ a Calc problem needed RC3
+ Linux & Mac already uploaded, Windows just packinging
+ will be announced for early testing later today,
final announcement delayed to the next week
+ 4.2.1 RC1 status
+ currently building on Windows (almost finished),
+ can be pushed to pre-releases & announced to early-QA today.
+ new-strings, previously un-translated, now marked - but didn't
update them in Pootle - not yet available
+ will be updated today, so 2 weeks until fixing in RC2.
* GSoC update (Cedric)
+ Google review starting / underway
+ please consider what you are able to mentor:
+ please checkout tasks with only one mentor and add yourself as a backup mentor.
* Crashtest update (Markus)
+ new crash-test / data (?)
+ calc looks really good outside of sxc
+ about 50x new writer issues on master
* UX hackfest bits (Kendy)
+ update achievements: Ahmad, Mirek, Tamas, Jacobo, others ... ?
+ be great to get some a11y fixes in (Jacobo)
+ need more small usability bugs for the next hack-fest to nail (Astron)
+ would have been good to have 50x string change bugs or somesuch.
+ could we file these as easy hacks ? (Michael)
+ perhaps a list like the QA team ? (Astron)
AI: + will try filing a lot of small string changes as easy hacks (Michael)
+ instead, had a number of quite large bugs, of which few were fixed.
* UX update (Astron)
+ Mirek & Astron - been distracted, not a lot happening just now.
+ need to get chats re-started etc.
* new hack-fest proposal (Bjoern)
+ offer of a hack-fest there, end of April
+ somewhat far away, but flights not so expensive ~Eur300 return
+ will enough people go there ? and what date ?
+ initial proposal - Easter weekend but expensive etc.
+ weekend ~problematic ? but Thur/Fri possible; April 24-25th ?
+ do we have budget ? (Michael)
+ yes, developer budget is there (Bjoern)
+ do we find enough (of the right) people to go ?
+ not end of April, would like to go (Stephan)
* HiDPI patches for 4.2.x? (Kendy)
+ LibreOffice does not look good on HiDPI screens at all - close to unusable
+ proposal to merge the HiDPI work to 4.2.x as a late feature
+ I would split the work into 'safe' and 'need real review' parts & push to a branch
+ can I get ESC approval / 3 intedependent reviews for that ?
+ is it a feature or a bug-fix ? (Michael)
+ most of the pieces going in enclosed in an if (hidpi) ...
+ checking that everything in the right if.
+ less safe part is checking / setting that flag; a small VCL piece.
+ Michael / Caolan signed up to review as/when there is a branch.
* Certification update (Kendy/Bjoern/Stephan)
* QA (Bjoern)
+ Celebrated 25k reported bugs in LibreOffice recently:
+ mostly closed, great to see Sophie's impact on triage.
+ post-release bug filing rate is ~static
+ so release not terribly bad.
+ 4.2.0 pushed to Ubuntu development release
+ Awesome work by Michael Stahl on writer regressions this week.
+ Bugzilla Migration update
+ no update.
+ Need-advice bug list bits ?
+ need to work through & remind some CC'd devs.
