+ poke Alex wrt. off-site backup for TDF services (Cloph)
* Release Engineering update (Robinson)
+ Cloph on vacation until next week
+ 4.3.2 release
+ released, and going well.
+ Bjoern re-introduced mergelibs for 4.3.2
+ enabled for 4.3.1 without a patch, we need
other libs in mergelibs to avoid circular deps.
+ some interesting bug reports wrt. dbtools moving
into mergelibs etc.
+ anyone interested in investigating ?
+ mergelibs works nicely from 4.0.x -> 4.2.x
startup time is visibily faster with it.
compressed pkg is 1Mb smaller too ...
+ bug is:
+ 4.3.3 RC1 - October 6th - week 41
+ 4.2.7 - due in week 40 - 29th Sept freeze.
+ credits: Tor not listed - why ? (for Cloph)
+ Android Remote
* Gerrit patch review / backlog (Thorsten)
+ looks like there are lots of un-reviewed patches.
AI: + everyone review one patch (All)
* Crashtest update (Miklos)
+ a run during the conference, detected some writerfilter issues, now mostly fixed.
+ bug around the conference
+ took crashers to 200, Miklos fixed it to 2000 instead
+ but now back to normal
+ RTF: zero crashers & low for docx / doc.
AI: + look at Excel threaded loading issue (Michael)
+ 6x documents affected.
+ crashers are with debugging enabled & a ton of asserts (Caolan)
* Hackfests (Robinson)
+ Seattle 'Libre-Fest' (Robinson)
+ October 26, 2014
+ Bug-triaging/Intro-to-community event
+ Following SeaGL conference
+ definite interest, heard back from some professors from the security lab
+ want to meet Norbert and/or Kohei and/or Bjoern - why not go ?
+ Toulouse Hackfest ...
+ Confirmed for Nov. 15-16th
+ more details: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Hackfest/Toulouse2014
+ Munich hack-fest (Jan-Marek):
+ jmux (IRC) can add you if you don't want to create an account
+ will have a BSP come-together; if someone says they're coming
just show up etc.
+ November 21st-23rd, 2014
+ we should drop by with 2 or 3 developers, if possible
+ Be great to have -really- easy easy hacks for devs (Bjoern)
* UX Update (Kendy)
+ asked for Sifr icon sources - sent to red-mine, apparently using it
want to make icon generation more predictable, avoiding black-magic
working on this with Mirek & sensibly ordered Inkscape sheet.
+ use of redmine discussion - issues / benefits (Bjoern)
+ Mirek won't be able to make the ESC call; so in absentia ...
+ Florian doesn't want the use of the redmine wiki - not backed up etc.
+ prefer a single tool used
+ how is redmine used for QA ? (Robinson)
+ specific admin pieces tracked in there.
+ happy to use bugzilla for that purpose
+ might already fit in the existing infra in Redmine ? (Bjoern)
+ could we merge those & close the project ?
AI: + move the data across to infra / bugzilla (Bjoern)
+ easy to do now - only 10x tasks or so.
+ sometimes there is infra not maintained by infra team (Robinson)
+ otherwise happy enough with UX guys in Redmine.
* QA (Robinson)
+ un-confirmed bug count holding just above 900
+ Robinson distracted by releng while Cloph on vacation
+ rallying the troops on IRC
+ unconfirmed state at same point in last cycle similar (Bjoern)
+ otherwise mostly quiet.
* QA stats:
+168 -88 (+80 overall)
