* Completed Action Items
+ poke RedHat security guy wrt. keys (Caolan)
+ investigate ChromeOS fonts (Caolan)
+ Google purchased liberation, and added more glyphs
best solution is to merge glyphs into Liberation,
for now, wait on Liberation guys to get it sorted.
AA: re-visit ChromeOS fonts in 2 weeks (Caolan)
+ investigate Liberation Narrow (Bjoern)
+ it is included, no problem / action required
+ firewall issues for new linux tinderbox (Thorsten)

* configure.in options (Caolan/Lubos)
+ should configure auto-detect libs on system
+ makes it easier for new people to build
+ problems with unexpected changes hurting
packagers / release engineers.
+ requirement (Bjoern)
+ have a mode where explicit enable/disable
states are hard-tested to avoid new &
interesting bugs. an --[no]-auto-magic ideal
+ longer term issue of not enabling components we
bundle by default.
+ already have an option to force using system libs
have another one to force internal libs for
+ default state prefers system libraries
+ many distros prefer system libraries already
+ desire to move to more -system packages for modern
Linux / unix systems eg. zlib (Caolan)
+ icu updates can cause behavioural changes with
the unicode std. so the internal version is
recommended - bit of a mine-field.
+ this is not shown anywhere (Lubos!)
+ ergo should not default to system icu (Caolan)
+ at users' own risk.
+ always a grey zone of old vs. new versions (Stephan)
+ why not use distro-configs still (Norbert)
+ makes things worse
+ implement the auto-magic feature if enable by an option (Lubos)
+ without feature enabled - behaves as today
+ needs to be tested on 3x platforms and produce an
identical config_host.mk vs. previous setup
+ beef up summary at end of configure
safe/dangerous/not recommended etc. eg. ICU
* stripping binaries or not (Petr)
+ don't strip solver, nor during make install
+ we have a make install-strip
+ which saves 80 megabytes in the system
+ RPM does this later automatically
* Noel's nice repeated format re-work (Eike)
+ looks good, need another attribute in the style section of ODF
AA: + propose a new attribute to the ODF/TC (Eike / Thorsten)
* tinderboxen / status (Norbert)
+ bytemark - re-booting/rdesktop issues still pending
+ new linux build-box coming
+ tinbuild2 - added some gerrit integration
+ ultimately needs some central co-ordination
of platforms in future.
* MSI / packaging work (Ellie)
+ best to work on master (Norbert)
+ currently have a SEGV during build lngconvex
AA: + help Ellie interactively with mingw crash (Tor)
+ some perl patches to come
+ examining custom actions for equivalent build
+ problems with 'env' changing location (send patch to list)
* QA update (Rainer/Bjoern/Petr)
+ Rainer distracted by the real world.
+ MingW build / question
+ any maintenance on these builds ? stopped testing
+ latest bug report from March
+ working on it currently (Ellie)
+ Stephan not in love / responsible
+ Tor - not so useful to add too many
+ happy with nightly MSVC snapshots of master, using them
for daily work (nearly perfect) (Rainer)
+ thus optimistic wrt. 3.6 release already.
+ German S/W migration manual for authorities
+ ODF concerns wrt. impress, some validation runs planned
and bug filing in the next weeks.
AA: + getting Rainer's blog to the planet (Bjoern)
+ new Bugzilla components (mst)
+ change assignee for NEEDINFO, VERIFICATION, ... ? (Bjorn/Rainer/Petr)
+ both topics punted to next week: lack of time
* Use gerrit ! test it / give it a hard time (Bjoern)
+ the repo there will never get merged back,
so play and try to do evil stuff.
+ Norbert to merge change-id tweak to git-hooks
* 3.5 most annoying bugs ...
