Michael M, Michael S., Miklos, Norbert
* Completed Action Items:
+ poke Matus wrt. callgrind / performance VM (Michael)
+ Include new C* font google replacements into vanilla install (Caolan)
+ draw bugzilla migration threads together & propose funding to the board (Robinson)
[ migration seems to be ongoing thanks to Thorsten / Tollef ]
+ produce a VM for the load / crash regressions (Cloph / Markus)
[ setup, and running the tests - quite a few false positives,
need to make it public. Running the second batch of tests ]
The interesting files are crashlog.txt if it is there.
Encourage people with time -> mid compile or whatever to take
a file & fix it. Quite a few string-length assertions firing now.
40-50 to address in 4.2 / master. ]
+ test and get backtraces for Java issue on Maverick (Norbert)
[ have to re-install Java after upgrade, the OS/prompt dialog
can cause a crash. The solution - not publish wiki-publisher
on Mac. The wiki-publisher, as soon as you type in writer
Java is instantiated on Mac. Wikipublisher brings a menu entry
from file->send->... when you type we instantiate all the menus
so Mac can decided if there is a shortcut ... (sberg)
Should we remove wiki-publisher completely ? (Michael)
+ just for Mac is enough for now (Sberg) ]
* Pending Action Items:
+ New templates (Ahmad)
[ work in progress hard-coding templates as code ]
+ produce a VM with callgrind metrics (Matus)
[ waiting for details on what should be installed ]
+ partition document test loads / run them on tinderboxen (Norbert)
[ started, need to work on script to split it down ]
+ get setup wrt. mobile app-store access (Cloph / Thorsten)
[ in progress around 4.1.3, pending Thorsten overcoming some
Android remote build problems with all langs ]
+ poke people around FOSDEM, and get submission details from Italo (Kendy)
[ pending reply from Italo ]
* Release Engineering update (Cloph)
+ 4.1.3 status
+ confusion again wrt. communication, now scheduled for tomorrow morning.
+ 4.2 Alpha 1 release planned for Monday ...
+ Feature freeze is Nov 18th.
+ GSOC / Android & iOS remote control releases from master update
+ credentials setup, iOS pending input from Thorsten
+ OpenCL functions & feature freeze
+ not concerned wrt. continuing development if not enabled by default
* New Keynote import filter (David)
+ first version integrated into LibreOffice
+ supports text, shapes, images
+ missing tables, formatting, comments etc.
AI: + create mirror of libetonyek on freedesktop (Michael)
* New commit access:
+ Marcos Souza - doing some good work (Norbert)
+ will be at the hack-fest.
+ Ray - doing good openCL work (Kohei)
AI: + add ijsung.
* 'UniString' is truly dead ? (Caolan)
+ still get the occasional StringLen class around the place, and a few
legacy 64k limits are around with 16bit indexes into strings etc.
+ does that finally fix the 64k limit on paragraphs ? (Michael)
- nearly done, but not got to that yet (Caolan)
+ lots of work, and a great outcome - thanks to all that helped,
AI: + ask Noel Grandin to blog about it (Caolan)
* solver going away (Michael S)
+ will push when finished building in gerrit.
+ instdir vs. instsetoo_.. tab completion pain (Michael)
+ need to get workdir & instdir combined (Stephan)
+ avoiding ORIGIN problems & LD_LIBRARY_PATH horrors during build
+ perhaps move instdir under workdir ?
+ could we use absolute paths ? (Michael S)
+ path from instdir -> workdir is always fixed (Michael S)
+ just an idea, easy sol'n make it a subdir of workdir (Stephan)
+ want to remove INPATH [ eg. unxlngi6.pro ] (Michael S)
+ except for cross-compilation with two inpaths
+ use two different paths ?
* Google C* font replacements / update (Caolan)
+ we should back-port to 4.1.x
+ would be a good plan, but no time to get to it yet.
AI: + already looking into that (Caolan)
* Certification progress (Kendy)
+ worth re-running the statistics of top bug fixers & see if
there are new names.
+ script - sorts by number of bugs fixed.
+ what about people who implemented features ? eg. GSOC (Michael)
+ critera - timespan, should be longer than one GSOC.
AI: + re-run the certification script (Kendy)
* Freiburg Hack-fest - * This Saturday * (in Frieburg !)
+ 23 people signed up so far - starting November 1st.
* QA update (Robinson)
+ a number of need_advice bugs whiteboard category
+ created a link / query on useful queries page:
