Present: Samuel, Stuart, Heiko


 * Further improvements for the meeting needed?
   + perhaps start one hour earlier because of ESC meeting (stuart)
     + lets try the current time first for a while (heiko)
   + make it shorter, e.g. 20min
     + depends on preparation of participants
     + thumbs/up down limits the meeting
     + sometimes even 40-50mins are not enough
     + brevity make the meeting not better
     => keep it at 1h
   + more structured agenda, only yes/no decisions
     + agenda is the right way
     + should be followed strictly
     => good like it is now
   + CC agenda on project/dev/qa/marketing mailing list
     + all who are interested are likely in the design ML
     + spamming all ML is not good
     => keep it in the design ML


 * Floating menus (options buttons)
   + Floating menu buttons that provide access to contextual functions
   + Should be unobtrusive but are always always in the way 
   + Requested here is a menu for auto fill https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=82424
   + And in general wrt. toolbars https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87040
   + if someone implements it... (samuel)
   + not our workflow, wontfix (heiko)
   + MUFFIN-approach is our way, we'd need to make those controls flexible (stuart)
   => keep the tickets

 * Enhance mail merge toolbar
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=109118
   + request to add some buttons to the MM toolbar
   + sounds good (heiko)
   + aligns with jmux? (stuart)
   + add them as icons without text (samuel)
   => thumbs up

 * Page layout mode for Calc
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=109230
   + spreadsheet is not a writer document with tables -> out of scope (heiko)
   + nice idea and good for new users (stuart)
   + if we go ahead with this idea it should behave like the (standard) page preview in Writer
     for consistency (heiko)
   + how to handle pivot table -> it's a can of worms (stuart)
   => thumbs up, depending on devs

 * Page render issue
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=110001
   + get rid of blurry page border?
   + vcl dependent?, better improve hardware rendering (stuart)
   => discuss in ESC, ideally keep the blurry border

 * Make page orientation preview icon interactive
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=111082
   + change the orientation by clicking the icon
   => wontfix, real previews are not interactive in LibO

 * Advertise LibreOffice when sending odf files per email
  + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87685
  => thumbs down
