    + https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/19149/
        + Human also depends on Industrial (Jay)
            + should that be actually depend on Tango? (Jay)
            + best to talk to Bjoern (Michaelsen) (Kendy)
* Table styles (Kendy)
    + would be good to have a Friday session about that (Kendy)
        + already collected stuff in a doc (Jay)
        + https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FPkf9fn79dXJ5tHpc-meMYxaQpj3nV5sEN6u9HOo2GQ/edit?usp=sharing
        + https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zOsEe_cj-VnFyuPZcld4-WPjwmdsfsaHuOO8e2dfhU0/edit
        + 9th October, 1:00pm CEST / 11:00am UTC (Kendy)
* Last week's design session (Heiko/Jay)
    + Area Tab - https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94551
    + talked about the Area properties (Heiko)
         + unfortunately did not finish in time yet (Heiko)
         + more mockups there (Heiko)
    + included color widget (Heiko)
    + some ideas harder to implement (Heiko)
    + bitmap background handling not convenient (Heiko)
    + but overall the proposal nearly finished (Heiko)
        + should publish that when done (Heiko)
            + proved useful with the print dialog (Heiko)
* Dedicated Design team blog (Heiko)
    + included in the official LibreOffice blog, or better to have a design-only one? (Heiko)
    + TDF-infra OK with the idea of design.libreoffice.org (Jay)
        + sounds good (Kendy)
        + initially ~3 people + inclusive for others (Jay)
    + conclusion: Jay will talk to the tdf infra guys to set that up
* Bug discussions
    + nothing this week
* Help updating (Kendy)
    + new release 3.1.3 on Monday (Kendy)
        + but more fixes in the meantime again :-) (Jay)
    + help-related meta bugs:
        + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94016
        + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93580
    + wikihelp? (Jay)
        + help proposal
            + idea to use xml editor (Kendy)
            + steps needed:
                + hooks on help.libreoffice.org redirecting to editable page
                + per-user session - own git checkout
                + some way of editing - either the xml help or the xml <-> html mapping
                + commit creation in the git + push to gerrit
            + overall - like the idea to have some infra on top of the current help,
              easier than the entire editable wiki (Kendy)
* Icon Updates / Issues (Jay)
    + still something wrong with inheritance (Jay)
        + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93866

        + bug report created (Jay)

        + Tomaž has an algorithm to create them (Tomaž)
            + re-colors Breeze & Sifr automatically (Tomaž)
            + will push to master soon (Tomaž)
    + Elementary icon theme added to git by Bjoern (Jay)
        + but not enabled by default
        + images_human.zip to be placed in /opt/libreofficedev5.1/share/config/
        + Human theme in Ubuntu outdated (Jay)

* START CENTER: Set new open remote file icon (Jay)
    + https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/19178
        + a comment there: "maybe the Open Remote button should be merged with the Open button,
          make it a split button"?
        + this is actually orthogonal to the icon (Kendy)
            + let's merge the icon if people happy with the look (Kendy)
            + it should be pushed (Stuart)
        + the split button was considered during the original design of the feature, but decided to
          have a separate button to make the feature more visible (Jay/Kendy)
    + should the button change from "Open Remote File" to "Remote Files"? (Heiko)
        + Agree (Stuart, Adolfo, Jay, Tomaz)
