Present: Gökhan, Muhammat, Jay, Eric, Heiko


 * Input from contributors
   + Handle with care, and ideally let the original poster close a ticket


 * LibO mascot
   + competition is planned but on-hold for details with board


 * Customization dialog (mkara)
   + Finalization of the design Jun/09 at 11am GMT/UTC (13:00 CEST)


 * Default paragraph style should be "Text body" and not "Default"
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=47295
   + https://plus.google.com/u/0/107566594492891737454/posts/LC6AnLuQL9z (quick poll on G+)
     + Default: n=41 (47%), Body: n=32 (36%), none: n=15 (17%)
   + Use "text body" instead of "default style"
   + Rename default to "mother of all styles", or the like
 * Text Body default line spacing too big ( proportional 120% instead of Single )
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=108206
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94464#c26
   + Warning when a style with children is changed would be good (Eric)
   + Voting for Default because of interoperability (Jay)
   => Keep Default (at least until text body is improved)

 * Order of styles
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=108351
   + related topics such as tdf#108351
   + perhaps have the upward-down order with most frequently used at the top (Heiko)
   => Applying a good/better order makes sense

 * Line spacing in Calc
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=105860
   + How to proceed?
   + I'd like Eike's opinion. (Stuart) Seems we use the 100 multiplier, which with Khaled's refactoring has now compressed
     the line heights. Can we instead apply the same 115 multiplier, common for Paragraph SetPropLineSpace(), to modify EE_CHAR_FONTHEIGHT
     and SID_ATTR_CHAR_FONTHEIGHT, this might correct spacing in general where using the font's height is now too tight without
     disrupting other SAL and SVX need for font height from hhea or typo attribute.
   + https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/gitweb?p=core.git&a=search&h=HEAD&st=grep&s=CHAR_FONTHEIGHT 
   => wait for decisions regarding Khaled's patch
