* Release Engineering update (Robinson)

+ currently staged, and has been announced, pushing to mirrors
+ following the steps, but the builds worked.
+ 4.2.7 - due in week 40 - 29th Sept freeze.

+ a run during the conference, detected some writerfilter issues, now mostly fixed.
+ run interrupted by security update / re-boot
+ VM state not preserved across re-boots
+ new-run ongoing - will be announced on list.
* New baseline aka C++11 (Jan-Marek)
+ Thread start: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libreoffice/2014-September/063326.html
+ Previous baseline: gcc 4.1.2 (2007-02-13)
+ Current baseline: at least gcc 4.8.1 (2013-05-31)
+ There was additional discussion on IRC (2014-09-18)
+ There had been previous discussions in May 2014 ESC calls
+ Tinderboxes (TBs) now based on RH 5 + RH Developer Toolset 2.x
+ "Official" baseline announced as gcc 4.7
+ "Official" announcement - you'll need gcc 4.7+ to compile LO 4.4
+ LOconf14 talks regarding C++11
- I didn't get the fact the introduction is due for LO 4.4
+ And the TBs moved the compiler / build tool baseline actually to gcc 4.8[.0] (release: 2013-03-22)
- TBs actually run 4.8.n (n > 0)
- Basically drops support for all distros > 2 years old
- Ubuntu 12.04 has gcc 4.6
- I know there are PPAs
Just contains offical release toolchains - no updates!
Unsupported (@see Workarounds) and not up to date with any baseline
- I know there is an unsupported 4.7.2 in precise-updates (universe)
- Already had an incompatibility bug
+ Since last week master requires gcc-4.7 (Stephan)
+ still works with gcc-4.6 - for now.
+ a bug introduced recently, fixed already thanks to Jan Marek
+ these things happen whatever the tinderboxes uses
+ just a function of the diverse compiler set we have.
+ Building master on old Ubuntu (Stephan)
+ building on 12.whatever - we broke that
+ for the TDF baseline builds, CentOS 5 - we use a devtools
toolchain with a related compiler & binaries that run on the
baseline - apparently not available for Ubuntu.
+ Old versions of distros / not compiling master (Stephan)
+ was not seen as an issue by the distro people.
+ master will only go into recent versions of distros.
+ so we have a 12.4 build problem, and need a solution for this.
+ If gcc-4.6 is needed - perhaps it works (Stephan)
+ we have to subset the C++11 features anyway (Kendy)
+ only feature missing in 4.6: delegating constructors (Stephan)
+ 'override' and 'final' - we have macros for them anyway.
+ possibly some std::library features not implemented in 4.7
+ from the core-language, all that is missing is delegating constructors
+ happy with that (Jmux)
+ do we get enough new goodness then ? (Michael)
+ sure we get tons - lots of goodies.
+ clang use 4.7 as their bootstrap baseline
+ can we have a tinderbox running gcc-4.6 (Miklos)
+ without that, sooner or later someone will break it.
AI: + setup a LiMux based tinderbox (Jmux)
AI: + send Jmux some tinderbox pointers (Norbert)
+ some good slides from the conference on this (Jacobo)
* Hackfests (Robinson)
+ Seattle 'Libre-Fest' (Robinson)
+ October 26, 2014
+ Bug-triaging/Intro-to-community event
+ Following SeaGL conference
+ definite interest, heard back from some professors from the security lab
+ want to meet Norbert and/or Kohei - why not go ?
+ Toulouse Hackfest ...
+ Confirmed for Nov. 15-16th
+ more details: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Hackfest/Toulouse2014
+ Munich hack-fest (Jan-Marek):
+ jmux (IRC) can add you if you don't want to create an account
+ will have a BSP come-together; if someone says they're coming
just show up etc.
+ November 21st-23rd, 2014
+ we should drop by with 2 or 3 developers, if possible
+ Be great to have -really- easy easy hacks for devs (Bjoern)
* Commit Access
AI: + get Samuel Mehrbrot access again (Michael)
* Opening up the ESC calls (Michael)
+ not everything but most - bridge 2x calls 1x private, 1 public via the G+ hangout ?
+ not v. fond of public recording issue (Norbert)
AI: + see if Florian / talkyo can provide a public / non-recorded room (Michael)
+ some topics eg. security, commit access still need to be private.
* UX Update (Astron / Mirek)
+ use of redmine discussion - issues / benefits.
* QA (Robinson)
+ un-confirmed bug count climbing again - just over 900
+ Robinson distracted by releng while Cloph on vacation
+ otherwise mostly quiet.
* QA stats:
+143 -93 (+50 overall)
