+ Robinson, Jan-Marek, Sophie, Miklos, Andras, Kendy, Stephan, Eike,
Christian, Muthu, Caolan, Michael M, Bjoern (last 5 minutes)
* Completed Action Items:
+ send welcome mail to Justin Luth (Miklos)
+ poke gerrit for him (Michael)
+ have a look at the CppUnit to implement 'expected failure' (Jan-Marek)
[ Not much to do here. CPPUNIT_TEST_FAIL is already there.
Accounting of XFAIL and XPASS seems to be tricky with the current implementation,
if we really want it. ]
* Pending Action Items:
+ please check if you're listed in the mentoring page (All)
+ UserAgent - drop bundled-languages (Michael)
+ UserAgent - produce a patch for review (Michael)
+ ask students to write their own wrap-ups to aggregate (Cedric)
+ write a nice blog entry about 1000's bibisect - including flowers (Robinson)
[ half way done, planned today ].
+ reach-out to Beta Co-working guy to book post-FOSDEM hackfest (Bjoern)
* Release Engineering update (Cloph)
+ 4.4.6 - RC2 status
+ due next week.
+ 5.0.3 - RC1 status
+ tagged and released for most platforms
+ up-loaded & ready for testing.
+ found a nasty OpenGL perf. issue (Michael)
+ 5.1.0 Alpha - week after next, code freeze mid. Nov.
+ tagging for 5.1 due next week.
+ Android & iOS Remote
+ Google-play dropped the 50Mb limit for APKs.
+ expecting another update in the play store.
* UX Update (Kendy)
+ discussing whether to remove industrial from git repo.
or at least the unused icons; so far leave it there.
+ perhaps used for 'Human' - unclear.
+ 'Dark' themes discussed -> hicontrast etc.
+ Tomaz came up with a high-contrastifying algorithm
for existing themes -> will save space.
+ start-center changes
+ rename the remote-files button, stay separate.
+ would like a dedicated design / UX blog
+ Jay filing a redmine ticket ( https://redmine.documentfoundation.org/issues/1505 ) -> no problem (Cloph)
* Documentation (Kendy)
+ new release of help authoring ext'n on Monday
+ again more fixes; more reliable, better help output etc.
+ still would like to have on-line editable help.
+ Jay had some idea of not editable wiki necessarily ?
+ editing on top of XHP files ?
+ if we find some volunteers - web development ?
+ LOOL in a bit ? (Michael)
+ hard part - git repo & auto-pushing (Kendy)
* Crashtest update (Caolán)
+ 5 import failures, 2 export failures, coverity unbuildable at the moment
+ refreshed input documents, 3 import failures are new documents
+ remaining import/export failures may be related to a recent regression
of mine caught by sberg's ubsan build, rerunning crashtest to find out
+ more effective than fuzzing to rely on public bug reporting.
+ coverity - C++14 / constexpr stuff causing grief ?
+ poking the guys over there.
* File format fuzzing to drive UX testing (Caolan)
+ some awesome intelligent fuzzers, work through code branches
+ re-purposing file-filters to drive UI input; 10x key strokes already.
+ working prototype already.
+ can iterate through 1x second; its learned how to open dialogs, open menu-bar etc.
+ first let it put keystrokes in, found it could enter large numbers.
+ need to be able to reset it to the start to make it faster
+ some sandboxing work would be good.
+ working on optimizing it.
* Hackfests (Bjoern)
+ Hamburg, Germany: Oct 23rd -> 25th (Bubli)
+ would be great to see everyone there.
+ Hamburg Hackers, I'm looking at you, please register! ;)
+ couchsurfing etc.
+ working to encourage Aarhus folks to Hamburg; evening before.
+ FOSDEM / Beta Co-working
+ next venues / suggestions
+ Belgium another candidate ...
+ perhaps again at Las Palmas (Thorsten)
* l10n Update (Sophie)
+ after the workshop - some workflow clarification
+ several pootle improvements proposed.
+ Nicholas created a tool for menu-accelerator duplicate detection.
+ will create a l10n channel on IRC and setup monthly meetings.
* Developer Certification (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy/Thorsten)
+ half of committee absent today -> next week (Stephan)
+ now we have 6 names (Kendy) ]
* Jenkins update (Norbert)
* Easy Hacks:
+ new easy-hacks thanks to:
+ Straub, Jan Holesovsky, Michael Meeks
+ create your own by setting whiteboard to eg.
"easyHack difficultyBeginner skillCpp topicCleanup"
+ Create new easy hacks from these proposed ones
(or remove the whiteboard keyword "needsDevEval" if not feasible):
