+ poke at artwork bits ...
+ UserAgent display & tweakage
[ still needs random 1% bits doing ]
+ Android & iOS Remote
+ simple patch submitted (thanks)
* blanket approval for lwp filter (Michael)
+ any objections to Caolan skipping review for all branches
for simple lwp fixes for 5-0 ?
+ fine but wants a CI build (Norbert)
+ but the CI slaves are horribly over-loaded (Michael)
+ capacity is 4x per hour on Windows (Norbert)
+ current 60 patches CI backlog is a 10x hour delay (Michael)
+ happy to drop review; or post review them, putting
them into 1x patch not ideal either (Caolan)
+ temporary disturbance not a problem (Norbert)
+ 35 issues outstanding and coming
+ patches on a feature branch vs. 5.0.4 - and 1x push to gerrit from tip (Bjoern)
=> push to gerrit & make it easy to merge. (see ./logerrit testfeature for the concept)
+ propose avoiding individual review for these patches (Michael)
+ sounds fine (Bjoern)
+ automatically solves this problem (Norbert)
+ just 1x commit in gerrit to approve.
* Crashtest update (Caolan)
+ ? import failures, ? export failures, ??? coverity
* IRC - ESC attendees appreciated as op's (Michael)
+ helps me remind you of ESC
+ ideally use channel service instead (Miklos)

+ not moderator - since account not registered (Bjoern)
AI: + get ops who are not listed in the developers page listed (JanI)
* Madrid (Bjoern)
+ Jacobo approaching the university was great
+ taught design-patterns in university.
+ where are they in LibreOffice ?
+ perhaps a blog series wrt. design patterns in-use.
+ "welcome to the real world" experience (Norbert)
+ colleague teaching theory (Jacobo)
+ wants students to see the reality.
+ could make patterns more visible for interested newcomers.
+ code-base pre-dates discovery of the patterns (Norbert)
+ Pasqual from Valencia, submitted some patches already
+ also interested in certification; 100k seats there.
* Hackfests (Bjoern)
+ FOSDEM / Beta Co-working (Bjoern)

+ mail owner after 1 month of inactivity -> Abandon patch if no activity after another month
+ please do comment/poke on gerrrit too (Bjoern)
+ good to start with old + negative review patches
+ not bot-work (Norbert)
+ will apply discretion (JanI)
