+ please consider what you are able to mentor:
+ mentors registered on melange
* Select All issues & their handling (Bjoern / Miklos)
+ problem with selecting all in the document; but a few basic
operations could crash writer: cut, undo, mouse wheel zoom.
+ tried to work around the latter, and found several others.
+ most of the issues already fixed by Miklos by now.
+ concern wrt. other cases: hard to know what is there ?
+ pointed out 3x bugs (Miklos)
+ one a non-regression, other 2x already fixed.
+ happy to handle them as/when.
+ be a shame to go back to avoiding fixing hard bugs.
+ we don't allow generic selections, only when the very
first item in the document is a table.
+ if more such problems found, please do let Miklos know.
+ leave it as-is for now (Bjoern/Miklos)
+ if reverted, could cause complaints & announced as a new feature.
+ should check / update the assertion too.
* Crashtest update (Markus)
+ kernel bug on the crash-testing VM
+ still pending on this :-(
+ partial new data: avoiding writer issues causing crash:
+ calc is really good; down to ~5 import crashers and ~50 export crashers
+ hard to see past the duplicates - need to re-run it (Miklos)
* Certification update (Stephan/Bjoern)
+ ran the script; identified a new set of candidates
+ certification - does it depend on fixing issues in 2x components ? (Kohei)
+ no, but a competence and community connection test.
+ seven candidates agreed unanimously.
AI: + mail candidates to ask their permission (Stephan)
* Gran Canaria hack-fest (Bjoern)
+ April 24-25, 2014 (Thu-Fri)
+ add good topic ideas to the wiki page
+ cf. action items above.
* OOXML export validation and ODF validation (Markus)
+ have support for export validation in our testing framework
+ tinderebox maintainer need to enable validation, at least on few boxes
+ Markus will write a mail - wrt. what is necessary to have in your path.
+ enabled in calc for ODF & OOXML now
+ enabled in chart2 for OOXML
+ also available in writer - but issues need tackling in the export tests
+ a chunk is around ordering of elements (Miklos)
+ these seem to cause no practical problems really.
+ in Excel element order is important (Markus)
+ elements are removed if in the wrong order.
+ hopefully this keeps validation errors under control.
+ Cloph enabled this on 2x TDF / Linux test-boxes, so they will fail now.
+ shell wrappers for java validators - can we have them
inside the tinderbox script ? (Thorsten)
AI: + check them in to save time (Markus)
* UX dialog / wiki page to find missing dialogs (Caolan)
+ very pleased with contribution - pwrt. database dialogs
+ more help appreciated
* QA (Bjoern)
+ Unconfirmed bugs are going up, but the rate is slowing
+ up 200 from minimum; we were below 800 before.
+ help appreciated with:
+ done an audit of writer regressions (Bjoern)
+ lots of these are really old in writer (43 are older than 4.0, while e.g. Calc has only 11)
+ very few in calc
+ Markus was aggressive at fixing these -
sub 10 until ~a year ago
+ getting rid of the last 2x 4.0 MAB
+ Done, and 4.0 MAB meta bug is closed.
+ Bugzilla Migration update
+ contacted Keith Packard, and got an intro to a
new freedesktop admin.
