+ new easyHacks:
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99341 mentor:fito -> "Simplify Document Recovery dialog by removing unnecessary header widget"
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99311 mentor:bjoern.michaelsen -> "Kill Pagein for good"
+ create your own by updating Keywords to eg. "easyHack, difficultyBeginner, skillCpp, topicCleanup"
+ please remember, a codepointer is mandatory, and typically a look from an experienced developer
+ create new easy hacks from these ones or remove "needsDevEval" if not feasible):
+ New statistic tooling in place, runs every night
+ Found several assigned easyhack with status != ASSIGN, corrected
+ Started to review all easyhacks (slowly)
+ Interesting merge ratio gerrit(6112)-openhub(18239) so 2 of 3 are not in gerrit
+ good to track this ratio over time (Michael)
+ that's 1 year running - last 3 months should be better (Norbert)
+ would like to enforce the gerrit workflow for the release branch
+ do you mean require CI or sign-off ? (Miklos)
+ two ways to sign-off, cherry-pick locally, or push via gerrit.
+ concern wrt. the gerrit build latency (Michael)
+ just submit it two days earlier (Norbert)
+ current situation - release branches; (Stephan)
+ people push changes to gerrit, takes a while to sign-off
most of them jenkins already did a build.
+ what are we talking about ? (Bjoern)
+ little reason not to do it always.
+ if you push in your patch too late, if you don't
know when cloph tags it.
+ deep concern about process, over people (Michael)
+ have had long, deep queues in the past - 50 patches.
+ if this comes up - can we put it in
+ not discussing enforcing it in any way ? (Stephan)
+ two aspects (Norbert)
+ committers - not be able to push it bypassing gerrit
+ can still verified +1 and push it
+ want to see it built fine & overrule it (Norbert)
+ want the workflow to go via gerrit (Norbert)
+ and ideally let Jenkins verify it.
=> propose add an ACL rule for libreoffice-* - will have to push via gerrit (Norbert)
+ propose if bypass CI - you should be around during the build (Bjoern)
+ big batch of back-porting ? (Caolan)
+ no problem with the proposal.
+ can Jenkins prioritize release-builds vs. master ? (Michael S)
+ in theory - a plugin that does this (Norbert)
+ will look at it if there is a problem
+ Continued discussion on having a identifier for buildable master
+ an ongoing dev-list topic; need something ?
+ check the tinderbox (Cloph)
+ all annotated with the gerrit hash
+ a tag or branch - kept updated ...
+ prefer to keep master buildable instead (Norbert)
+ new Jenkins hardware (Norbert)
+ expanding dbgutil and product builds as CI for master.
+ eventually build 6 - not 3x builds.
* Commit Access
* Developer Certification (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy/Thorsten)
+ after GSOC setup
* Jenkins / CI update (Norbert)

* QA update (Bjoern)
+ UNCONFIRMED: ???
+ going up - help much appreciated.
+ enhancements: ??
+ in ux-advise: ??
+ needAdvice at ??
+ regression analysis:
- We still carry a lot of regressions from the LibreOffice 4.2/4.3 releases (>50 each)
- Impress currently has a consistent low persistent regression rate (around 5 per release)
- Writer seems too have gotten a lot healthier recently (since 5.0)
- broadly we have 1/3 regressions in Writer, 1/3 in Calc and 1/3 is the rest
- roughly 20% of these regressions are marked as critical/major
+ punch-lines ?
+ if we keep new writer regressions low we'll do well (Bjoern)
+ we should write more regression / unit tests (Miklos)
+ Most Pressing Bugs:
+ tdf#89034 - OS X: Text not being justified in Persian and other RTL languages
+ Persists as Common issue -> lots of duplicates; many related layout bugs
+ Mail merge regressions (Bjoern)
+ Cor did some testing of the new code
+ http://tdf.io/mmregressions (11 open; 9 open last meeting)
+ several have commits on them - just need closing.
+ cannot reproduce myself (cloph), but crash on startup would be bad...
+ non-release-config tinderbox is fine, release-style box shows the problem
+ April 22nd - 1st 5.2 bug-hunting session planned.
