* Completed Action Items
+ add HackFest hardware / Amazon VMs to Board budget planning (Michael)
+ poke Sophie to check updating is checked in MozTrap (Cloph)
+ added bibisect repo (Miklos)
* Dropped Action Items:
+ chasing build / test intermittency:
+ turn the SAL_WARN into a fprintf & send to Cloph ? (Kendy)
+ run the 'make slowcheck' 20x from the top-level & report (Cloph)
=> seems to be fixed by commits on master meanwhile
+ will try filing a lot of small string changes as easy hacks (Astron)
* Pending Action Items:
+ crashtest box - more research (Moggi/Cloph)
[ calc is working, writer problems can't easily be nailed down,
have to use multiple processes ]
[ calc numbers increased a bit - but not as bad as expected ]
+ encourage icon authors to put them into git (Astron)
+ fix the Java bridge for MSVC2012 for 4.3 (Stephan/Michael S.)
+ Add StarOffice OOoXML export removal to 4.2 release notes (Cloph)
* Release Engineering update (Christian)
+ 4.3 status
+ failing unit tests oddness - the hunt ...
+ investigating Windows test failures (spellchecking)
+ 4.3.0 feature freeze:
+ next week May, 19th -- release date overlap with OSCON
+ take that to QA (Bjoern)
+ 4.2.5 RC1 - when ?
+ freeze in two weeks
+ no trouble expected
+ Android / iOS remote
+ no news
+ punted until mmmeks is back
+ bit out of date: worth updating for 4.3 ?
+ 'Contributors to Bundled Templates' - oddly coloured heading.
+ can we separate rows better for readability ?
+ embolden bold name perhaps ?
+ tracking tags in Redmine a stupid idea? (Bjoern)
* LibreOffice 4.3.0 alpha1 bibisect:
+ see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/HowToBibisect#Versions
+ 182 new builds
+ Cloph did some Windows bibisect builds for Florian UI stuff
* 4.3 Features Page (Michael)
+ please update it !
* Address & Leak Sanitizer (Moggi/Sberg)
+ gcc/clang compiler stuff from GOOG for tracking buffer overruns etc.
+ works mostly out of the box
+ distribute build to the QA team?
+ runtime thing/instrumented build that spits out leaks etc. found during a run
+ enable for development/make check? (mst)
+ some junit/java trickiness here (libjpipe.so)
+ QA guys reporting back on bugzilla?
+ sure (sberg)
AI: + send example (Markus)
* FISL Brazil Update (Fridrich)

+ autotext stuff?

+ coding starts next week
+ add students with commit accounts [ for their branches ]
AI: + add them to commiter group (Norbert)
* Distro branches & commits (Michael)
punted -- no Michael
* unit test documents bloating up git repo: (Michael)
+ might be mine (Miklos)
+ automated task?
+ test fail on too big file?
+ these docs are not commited with evil intend, they are sneaking in (Bjoern)
+ test failure on big docs might hurt local testing (Bjoern)
+ git-hook would prevent pushing unsuited docs though (Bjoern)
+ even easier (Miklos)
+ gerrit doesnt show how big a binary is (mst)
+ git hook would handle that too (Norbert)
+ people would evade that (Norbert)
+ external repo? (Norbert)
+ raising awareness should be enough for now (Bjoern)
AI: + update git hook (Miklos)
* Crashtest update (Markus)
+ new data ?
* Certification Committee (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy)
* Gerrit review request (Caolan)
+ lots of stuff building up there that needs review; help appreciated.
+ better shape than last week
+ we need to be more vicious on abandoning old ones
AI: + walk through old changes, nag people, abandon changes (Bjoern)
* Coverity Update (Caolan/Markus)
+ seems like a lot going on there, how are the stats ?
AI: + needs a new build scheduled (moggi)
* collect all bibisects at dev-downloads (Bjoern)
+ AFAIK e.g. Miklos has a bibisect repo "somewhere"
+ suggesting to have all bibisects with a copy at http://dev-downloads.libreoffice.org/bibisect/ too
+ more importantly: have all available bibisects listed at https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Bibisect
+ done by now (Miklos)

+ available for CentOS 5 as well http://linux.web.cern.ch/linux/devtoolset/
(and also personal repository: http://people.centos.org/tru/devtools-2/ )
+ Mac: drop 10.6 compatibility?
+ Windows: move to MSVC 2012
+ possible painpoints: update baseline on OSX
+ possibly drop 32Bit?
+ Windows should already be recent enough (Cloph)
+ might need an updated version, we likely have that (sberg)
+ RHEL baseline is too old too (sberg)
+ there is devtoolset to use a newer compiler on old baseline

+ June 27-28th
