doing incremental Windows builds of master + gerrit ]

+ pspfontcache: should have AFM info in it.
+ seems to be being re-written in error
+ fdo#65338 - really positive response to bibisect requests
+ thanks to jorendc for the bibsect & Lubos for the fix.
AI: + file svg / help->about issue in master as 4.2 MAB (Astron)
* QA update (Joel)
+ BSA is updated, if selected a collapsed / old version, it
recommends you update.
+ QA Contest update
+ got very close to the goal: 24->25% of the bugs triaged
+ Joren & Joel counting now:
+ hopefully will know in the next week who won.
+ quite a lot of guys put in a substantial amount of time
+ now hovering at 921 unconfirmed bugs.
+ before at 1191 unconfirmed bugs.
+ etherpad is up, thanks to Robison & Florian for hard work testing etc.
+ skipping tomorrows' QA call.
+ Need_Advice bugs input appreciated (more of them now)
+ 10 bugs (-3) in that state (thanks)
+142 -397 (-255 overall)
+ however -285 are stale / NEEDINFO closures
many thanks to the top five:
Michael Stahl 5
David Tardon 5
+ another needinfo round for six month old bugs - next week.
+ ask for info, wait a month, close if none.
+ Final stats for round 1:
+ 25% of bugs in needinfo - touched in some way => preserved.
+ 75% closed as invalid.
+ got a few E-mails, a couple why invalid ?
+ responded: we need info, please provide.
* FISL event roundup (Bjoern)
+ Awesome conference in Brazil, great attendance,
+ good workshops, amazing community growth
+ new people coming in; some communication
difficulties; face-to-face is easier
+ Intel offered vtune licenses - LibreOffice a great
test case, how to proceed from there ?
+ get some vtune licenses from there, or
+ give them samples to play around with ?
AI: + send details to Pierre-Eric (Bjoern)
* GSOC update (Cedric)
+ please mentor your students, mid-term evaluations
+ around 2 weeks away ...
+ Mon 29th July until end of that week
* UX input (Astron)
+ not so much on the list, no chat last week.
+ controversy - insert ruler
AI: + fdo#60858 needs input (Astron)
+ need to ship rulers again even though awful (Cedric)
+ need to add code to guess / fixup paths too (Michael)
AI: + file a bug to split out that piece (Cedric)
+ and the UI piece which is horrible needs thought too (Cedric)
+ always someone uses a fn. that almost everyone
thinks is useless (Astron)
+ avoid bringing back the garish / pixellated ruler
+ prefer sidebar option when enabled to enable it
for all components by default, rather than using
+ discussion about the theme for the planet is ongoing.
* Certification Program (Stephan/Kendy/Bjoern)
+ nothing much happening.
* Help -> Send Feedback issue (Bjoern)
+ lots of things sent via BSA are support requests which are invalid.
+ idea to have a mailing list instead for English pre-processing,
as per French (but doesn't save any time)
+ instead send them to ask.libreoffice.org ?
+ and hope to escalate those to bugs ?
+ another option is a landing page (Joel)
+ concern wrt. escallation latency etc. from Ask
+ better to have a clear landing page
+ "definite bug" -> help
+ "support" -> ask
+ "instructions" -> wiki
+ should we re-use Mozilla's work ? (Michael)
+ launchpad has a similar problem (Bjoern)
+ openid makes account creation easy;
button to turn it into a question ->
invalid -> askbot
+ bugzilla / account creation is painful - ask / openid is easier
+ Rob asked the design list to do something like that (Astron)
+ ongoing issue with fdo (can't use openID)
+ Robinson - might be able to improve 'ask' to add a
'file a bug' button to fdo for ask moderators.
+ and auto-set it to NEW ?
+ avoids authentication / openID issues
AI: + talk to Robinson about that (Joel)
+ can do all the data collection there before push
+ share de-duplication with Ask guys ?
* UI dialog conversion (Caolan)
+ 290 dialogs so far
+ Qudos to:
+ excellent work from KACST
+ converting the help as well which is great.
+ also Andras' students and others doing good work there.
+ somewhat over 1/2 way to the goal and improving.
