+ example repo with GNOME apps:
+ packaging LO:
+ single bundle with all langs, online help (and just x86-64)

+ pretty good this week.
* Visual Studio 2015
+ originally wanted only 1x version to avoid cross-influence
+ OTOH 5.1 doesn't build with it
+ concerned wrt. switching tool-chain mid-release.
+ if want to build 5.1 and master - need both.
+ what are relative risks of:
+ 2013+2015 vs. back-porting etc. ?
+ different jenkins slaves ? (JanI)
+ budget good, but not that good.
+ would need to do more setup work etc.
+ obsolete old compiler (nicer C++) - new baseline
+ ensure new builders can build it.
+ tinderbox is good enough ? (Michael)
+ problems with combinations; dbgutil, 32bit, 64bit etc. (Norbert)
+ both compilers on 1x machine (JanI)
+ linker problems, depending
+ not a big issue (Norbert)
+ each tree with its own compiler.
+ different libraries linked in etc.
+ about releases ? (Michael)
+ about Jenkins builds (Norbert)
+ release machines are locked down differently.
+ rather go with install both on T-boxes (Stephan)
+ will find problems in official cloph builds.
+ better than switching to 2015 on 5.1 line
=> install both versions
+ install 2015 on 2013.
+ consensus from all.
* Easy Hacks:
+ create your own by updating Keywords to eg.
"easyHack, difficultyBeginner, skillCpp, topicCleanup"
