* Completed Action Items
+ talk to fdo admins wrt. bugzilla dump (Norbert)
* Pending Action Items:
+ crashtest box - more research (Moggi/Cloph)
[ nailed it down to 4000 documents where the problem is ]
+ will try filing a lot of small string changes as easy hacks (Astron)
+ update wiki schedule to include new Alpha 1 (Cloph)
* Release Engineering update (Christian)
+ 4.2.3 rc3 status / update.
+ released today, somewhat delayed by:
+ including a last-minute openssl / security update etc.
AI: + update the security page (Cloph)
+ 4.2.4 rc1 - deadline is on Monday - April 14th
+ 4.1.6 RC1
+ tagged, Windows still building will up-load today.
+ openssl issue didn't affect 4.1.x
+ Android / iOS remote
+ ahunt fixing a few bugs & testing with BlueZ 5.0
+ problems around new requirement for dbus service file install here.
* UX update (Astron)
+ nothing much done; will handle SpinachCon report shortly.
+ new version of Sifr potentially coming, re-colouring done manually
+ prefer that to be done programatically (Michael)
+ a few lines of code vs. 1.5Mb+ of theme
+ do we have SVG sources for all the icons ? (Kendy)
+ yes, we have SVG sources for all, but some keep on their hard-disks
and not put into git.
AI: + encourage icon authors to put them into git (Astron)
+ multiple repositories with icons (why?) can we flatten that ?
+ can we get git push access to contributing artists ? (Michael)
+ would like separate SVG files for icons for HiDPI (Kendy)
* LTO / fields concerns (Michael S)
+ https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=75376#c20 & comment 21 / 22
+ looks like we have an LTO bug in VS 2010 affecting Writer rendering.
+ http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/Win-x86@47-TDF/2014-04-09_12.09.54/ (lto enabled build)
+ http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/Win-x86@47-TDF/2014-04-07_11.14.34/ (lto disabled)
+ would love community help investigating MSVC++ LTO compiler bug
+ in particular a unit test to catch that etc.
+ propose to disable LTO on libreoffice-4-2 branch
AI: + agreed - turn it off / push gerrit patch (Michael S)
+ propose to move to MSVC 2012 for 4.3 release builds where LTO does not produce this bug
+ TODO: enable --mergelibs on Win32 for 4.3
+ TODO: need to prevent JVM loading problem https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=50584
+ currently happens to work because we use the same run-time as Java does.
+ there is a hack for JVM loading that looks around to manually load the run-time library that
matches the JVM, apparently used to work with JVMv6 (used an older MS run-time)
we could perhaps implement that for JVMv7 too - remains to be done.
+ I fixed this bug before, can give code pointers (Markus)
AI: + look into fixing the Java bridge for MSVC2012 (Stephan)
+ should we still target Windows XP ? (Cloph)
+ by default it doesn't.
+ yes, should continue supporting WinXP
+ didn't MS drop support ? (Norbert)
+ not for everyone (Michael)
* GSoC update (Fridrich/Cedric?)
+ still ranking / ordering students, check what's up
+ we've been kindly given 11 slots (whoot)
* Crashtest update (Markus)
+ still manually bisecting the .doc files for the bad one, so no new data yet.
+ just hit it - down to 200 documents ...
* Gran Canaria hack-fest (Bjoern)
+ April 24-25, 2014 (Thu-Fri)
+ see you there ...
* Certification Committee (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy)
* QA (Robinson)
+ holding the unconfirmed count to ~1000
+ BugHunting Session for 4.3 (May 23-25)
+ Sophie leading that
+ buzilla migration (Norbert)
+ Tollef responded ! we have a dump ... / sanitised themselves.
+ re-loaded on a VM setup for that; got it working; seems ok.
+ planning to re-do the install/restore so it's scripted
+ to avoid problems when we do it for real
+ also helps for disaster recovery.
+ concerns wrt. scalability (Michael)
+ bugs.fdo. runs on a ~huge machine, we need hardware to back that
+ in 3 years - we're 40% of fdo bugs. (Norbert)
+ havn't looked at that yet; mostly a money problem
+ intention to get to a point: where we can have an automated
install / restore bugzilla.
+ Tollef agreed to shut-down fdo during the migration to get a
consistent data-set, change DNS etc.
+ Tollef also wrote a script for individual re-direct.
+ Should we change hierarchy / arrangement ? (Michael)
+ no - lets have fewer moving parts (Norbert)
+ get the data out, and then move it later.
+ can move it later (Bjoern)
+ lots of interest from QA wrt. OpenID support for bugzilla (Robinson)
+ see if others deploying bugzilla can help out there ...
+ scrubbing kept every user that ever interacted with LibreOffice, but the
user password is a hash; salted with a per-install super-long string.
+ any needinput etc. bugs to highlight ?
