Present: Thomas, Csongor, Jay, Heiko

 * Vertical alignment of images anchored as character
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87742
   + screenshot - https://bug-attachments.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=111368
   + WF because alignment depend on use case; center is as good as top (Heiko, Csongor)
   + Top is better than centered, ideally first line at top, last at bottom (Thomas)
   => no objection but not worth the effort

 * Toggle read access at statusbar
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=86303
   + no need for this feature in the sb => WF (Heiko)
   + use case: multiple open documents where some are secured by the function (Csongor)
   + 2x pro the suggestion, 1x no opinion, 1x con
   => go

 * Shortcut for Double Underline in all modules
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113939
   + if we do that it requires to switch from ctrl+D to shift+ctrl+U in Writer (Heiko)
   + advantage of consistency but have a better shortcut (Thomas)
   => go with shift+ctrl+U for double underline for all modules

 * Change string from 'Left' to 'Default' or 'Start' or code 'Right' entry
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=98211
   => postponed for Stuart

 * Removal of tango, breeze and libreoffice palettes
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113858
   + at least LibreOffice should remain as it is our branding (Heiko)
   + Thomas, Jay pro cleaning up
   + keep LibO, remove Tango/Breeze (Csongor)
   + better names for LibO? (Thomas)
      + idea has been refused last year https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=104053
   => keep going

 * Removal of Open Sans, PT_Serif, Source Sans/Code fonts (Jay)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=103080
   + ESC were against removing of Libertine and DejaVu
   + would still like to remove Open Sans, PT_Serif, Source Sans Pro
     and Source Code that were added in 4.0 and 4.4 now that we are
     bundling Noto Sans and Noto Serif families.
     + we dont bundle Source Serif Pro as it isnt available in italics
   + like many different fonts (Csongor)
   + hate many different fonts, esp. when not installed via distro management (Heiko)
   + no opinion, don't like too much very similar fonts (Thomas)
   + be mindful of fallback for unique glyphs, U+1f512 for example--Source Code Pro our only location (Stuart)
      + what did we do before Source Code Pro was added in 4.0? (Jay)
      + shove them into OpenSymbol, the Emoji support has been painful (Stuart)
   => AI: ESC should confirm removal of the three

 * Optimal column width
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113604
    (auto size behavior, "style" instead of direct formatting)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113960
    (table properties: col sizing tedious)
   + solution could include UI proposal from https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113603
   + Working With Tables in Writer - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1D212Ihf8BYVOa1VjSPifq4sO_Cq4CZPhC0vya68zk3c
   => would be a cool GSoC project, needs a design session
   => keep tickets but do not make small patches
