* QA update (Rainer)
	+ no major news
	+ German lists helping out with bug confirming

* ODF 1.2 standards compliance vs. 'the real world'
	+ producing known-broken ODF is problematic, unless
	  the standard is fixed.
	+ much more in ODF 1.2 that is not back-compat with 1.1
	+ a superficial fix for this version doesn't really
	  address the real problem.
	+ Microsoft Office doesn't support ODF 1.2
	+ the version is needed to decide which interpretation
	  of the incompatible changes in 1.2 to use
		eg. list level / numbering
		+ ie. we need to be able to load our own
		  format accurately.
	+ MS Office does import the document content
	  after 'repairing'
		=> no action

* 3.5 most annoying bugs ...
	+ 21 (of 76) open vs. last week: 23 (of 71) open
	+ https://bugs.freedesktop.org/showdependencytree.cgi?id=37361&hide_resolved=1
	+ concerns wrt. base
		+ some pretty incompletely tested code.
