* Release Engineering update (Petr)
+ 3.5.5 retrospective
+ went well, modulo needing another release-candidate
+ should we extend the gap between RC's - or not ?
+ prolly not we get few of these fix regressions
+ 3.5.6 RC1 - July 14th - 2 weeks time.
+ 3.6.0 RC1

+ B3 - 220
* GSOC update (Cedric)
+ time to ensure all evaluations are in; only 2 pending.

+ concerns about green-ness of new branding
+ leave it as-is for now; fix later in 3.6.2 if
people havn't acclimatised to the brightness.

+ about-box / background image work in progress
AI: + Mango icons - not in yet, going in ~tomorrow (Astron)

* re-basing update (Michael)
+ 76 modules ~complete, 59 to go
+ ~17k files re-based.
* Solaris compile / status update (Pierre-Eric)
+ friendly French chap working for Lanedo
+ couple of weeks of work to make it compile on Solaris with gcc
+ so far, starts, looks pretty and crashes
+ involved on IRC (pepp) - debugging and improving things there
+ focused on Intel initially
* un-merged patches in bugzilla (Michael S / Caolan)
+ halved the numbers of open bugs
* cppunit / build issues (Michael)
+ deferred for Markus / David to be present.
* QA update (Rainer)
+ business as usual
+ no un-expected problems in 3.6
+ no real blockers known currently
+ Tollef's bugzilla improvements
+ migrated database to faster & virtualised hardware.
+ fewer error-message problems so far.
* Windows / ldap (Fridrich)
+ porting from mozilla ldap library to native windows API
+ moving to openldap included for linux / generic builds
+ leave mozilla code for addressbook integration,
and/or re-write to avoid big chunk of mozilla bundled
+ use NSS for security pieces
* gerrit update (David / Bjoern)
+ E-mail firehose
+ initially a bit much, turned it down a bit.
+ send mails for 'new change' and 'merged' now.
+ 'merged' is buggy, if you push directly without
signing-off on gerrit before; bug filed.
+ gerritbot: scripting to eg. send mails etc. is in:
+ can we have the patch in the 'new change' mail (Lionel)
+ would be nice !
+ two ways to do mailing - better to move to using stream object
and generate our own mails (Bjoern)
+ change templates on server-side; would affect all
subscribing to a watched project.
+ could we not send mails for committers' changes (Petr)
+ hard to do (Bjoern)
+ some benefits
+ only a few more steps (Eike)
+ confusion from several routes through the flow
+ patches are well-formed & apply (Michael)
+ unwelcome transactional cost (Fridrich)
+ others havn't tried it yet but should.
+ still some teething troubles from startup costs (Bjoern)
+ lots of supposed / bogus patch inter-dependency
+ multiple commits when pushed are marked dependent,
even if they are not etc.
+ please use the './logerrit nextchange' tool to ensure
separate patches stay separate.
+ around five patches per day or so coming through.
