   + Reopening a ticket needs four-eye based decision
(We had in the past some situations where a closed ticket was reopend rather for personal reasons. The suggestion is to get another opinion in cases where a decision was made. So please just comment closed tickets and do not reopen until someone else agrees with you. The same for reopened ticket, have a second opinion or better we discuss the topic at the meeting.)


 * Major release update / branding for 6.0
   + https://design.blog.documentfoundation.org/2017/06/16/motif-next-release-prefer/
   + Cube variants is the preferred design
   + Will try to professionalize it (Heiko)

 * Guest contribution on the design blog?
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59611 -> c12
   -> Agreement on the idea


 * Removal of Format > Column entry
   + https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/39017/
   + Pro: Available in Format > Page and Format > Sections
   + Con: Apply to text selection missing; going with Insert > Section, Format > Section > Option is tedious
   + Users likely expect a simple columnize option
   + General approach what dialogs are subsummized under others and what not missing
   + Aim is to remove redundancy and shrink the menu (Jay)
   + Similar to watermark which is not an extra dialog but part of page settings (Jay)
   + We better wait with the patch until we have a split/menu button that offers quick access at toolbar/sidebar (Heiko)
   + Also consider to add/change presets in the columns dialog so the user can define the quick access options
   + We have a split button like this in the Insert toolbar (Jay)
