+ Rainer, David, Andras, Lionel, Norbert, Christian L,
Kendy, Caolan, Mitch, Stephan, Michael M, Cedric, Petr,
* Completed Action Items
+ notify all committers when we have a nice simple, minimal
statement of what is required for gerrit written (Bjoern)
+ maildrop for Gerrit (Bjoern)
+ send mail starting [PATCH] to gerrit at libreoffice.org
initial implementation done, could need some tweaking, like:
- adding the mail body (and the time and sender of the mail)
- maildropped patches do not get firehosed to the ML (unless CCed) as the
uploader is the gerritbot himself and thus he get no email notification
about his upload -- a firehose based on openstacks IRC bot should solve this
and not be too hard (and that one is now properly licensed, so we can fork it)
- allowing adding comments via email (though no approval -- to much
+ file an easy-hack to ship a binary to zip user-profile for debugging (Petr)

* download / version selection issues
+ always complicated to have 2x downloads on
the same page (Astron)
+ can we label point-zero releases in some
better way ?

+ We could list other versions explicitly instead
of having the multiple selection pages marked
"Change system, version, language" (Cloph)
* Editing website performance (Cloph)
+ issue with editing the website - takes the site
down for a long delay.
+ we've had load issues on the server; php processes
