Present: Nickson, Thomas, Heiko

 * Options for Number recognition in Writer tables deserve better default
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113241
   + https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/61065/
   + hierarchical relation of checkboxes needs to be fixed by
     a) parent depends on child state
     b) removal of the parent item
     c) no hierarchy, ie. all get left aligned
   + b) and c) is not possible
   + a) means we keep all unchecked by default but check both children automatically when
     the parent (Number Recognition) is beign checked; this checkbox needs an indetermined
     state in case only one of the two is checked and has to be off when both are unchecked 
     (which is a minor difference to the current behavior) (Heiko)
   + support Cor's patch; it's at least better than now (Thomas) and a) could be step 
   => look into it whether a) is easy to do, otherwise I don't block

 * Show error and other special values at the beginning of the list of automatic filters
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=118574 
   + better provide sort or filter (Heiko)
   + pre-sorting easily fails use cases (all)
   + next to top 10, empty, non-empty we could introduce numeric, alphanumeric
   => good idea, go for it
   + go with a dropdown to provide more than 3 +2 predefined items (plus a button "Apply" next to it) (Heiko)
   + not a fan of hiding options from the user (Thomas)
   + sounds feasible (Nickson)

 * Table alignment to center does not recenter upon table resizing
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=120026 
   + WF because of unwanted side-effects when a table resizes itself or
     implement as defined in ODF and likewise for frames (see c8)
   + agreement with Regina that a state has to be realized as it (Nickson, Thomas)
   => repositioning of the table after column resize is accepted

* Display metric units on ruler in multiples of 5 when possible
  + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=77824 
  + WF, see c9 (Heiko)
  + dont see the benefit of unusual values such as 7,14,21 or 3,6,9 (Thomas)
  + In favor of 'round'/usual metric values as long as possible and useful (Thomas)
  => keep ticket open and let dev decide what "favorize steps of 1 and 5" means

 * Document converter
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=120006 
   + Mockup without wizard; yes/no?
   + rework appreciated, dialog is ugly
   + wizard is not needed
   + export to PDF? -> converter saves OD XML files according help
   => go ahead

 * Non-hidden children of hidden styles appear in top level of sidebar 
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119919
   + comment 6 for an overview
   + would prefer to get rid of hiding styles (Heiko)
   + do not hide styles in tree view but grey out (Thomas)
   => decision postponed
