* Present: Jakub, Jay, Kendy, Tomaz

* UI changes integrated the last week:

    + Improvements in menus and shortcuts (Jay)
    + Updates in Sifr (Jay)
    + Popup menu improvements (Maxim)
    + Icon view for Remote files dialog (Szymon)
    + More animation information in list control (Akshay)

* Google and OneDrive CMIS functionality (Jay)

    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=98360
        + we are promoting this functionality with the new 'Remote Files' dialog
          but as it doesnt function right, many duplicate bugs are just being filed and closed.
        + google drive - https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=98416
        + onedrive - https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62437
        + send in patch to hide OneDrive - https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/22881/

    + Will discuss this in the ESC (Kendy)

* Single Toolbar Mode (Jay/Samuel)

    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92218
    + https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/22818

    + The idea was to have choice, not the default - right? (Kendy)
        + Yes, possibility to have only one row for the users that prefer such layout (Jay)
        + Created the xml file, hope to have a developer to switch easily (Jay)

* Mac version with single color (Jay)

    * All icon themes look clearer on a plain white/light background similar to LibreOffice Vanilla

    + The reason for the white is technical - cannot use the API in the sandboxed app (Kendy)
    + Actually in the newer OS X, the look changed, but LibreOffice still uses the old look (Jay)

    + We try to look as a native application (Kendy)
        + But we don’t have to (Jay)
        + The easiest would be to do a uniform color (Jay)
    + Would be good to add screenshots of some contemporary OS X apps, to mimic the look better (Kendy)
        + Will ask Steve (Jay)
        + iWork - http://notebooks.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/pages-tool-tips.jpg / http://tidbits.com/resources/2014-10/iwork-mac-toolbars.png / https://i.ytimg.com/vi/U3p_cTb0d80/maxresdefault.jpg 
        + WPD Reader - http://a5.mzstatic.com/us/r30/Purple2/v4/a2/a0/b5/a2a0b5fa-10b8-479e-54b3-498543a7df88/screen800x500.jpeg 

* Help/Documentation (Jay)

    + Writer's Insert menu completed
        + Awesome! (Kendy)

* Scripts to convert .xhp help to html (Jay)

    + Help test servers needed - https://redmine.documentfoundation.org/issues/1584 https://redmine.documentfoundation.org/issues/1856
        * PHP script created to render the help repo similar to Olivier's http://hc3.edx.srv.br/
        * Want to integrate Liongold's PHP script of my proposal for online xhp testing, else i'll have to recreate it
    + Helper script to test help files in help viewer - https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/22962 (needs to be pushed)
    + logerrit needed for help repo - https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=98488

    + proposed to tender the editing of xhp's if struggle to get it via the community (Kendy)

    + Would be great to have the code in a repository (Kendy)
        + help or dev-tools or website repo ideally (Kendy)
        + Will publish that (Jay)
        + Will poke the admins for the VM again (Kendy)

* Insert bookmark window (Jakub)

    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=90855 
    + Screenshot - http://imgur.com/7uOROsr 
    + Unable to change bookmark name (Jakub)
        + Should that be changed to allow that? (Jakub)
        + Would be good (Jay)

    + Will push changes to gerrit soon (Jakub)
