* Mentoring Update (JanI)
+ working with 5x new-comers
+ 4 active, 3 on IRC.
+ could use help with tdb - and how to set breakpoints.
+ average patch review length: 3 weeks in gerrit - too long.
+ proposal for lowering the gerrit patch queue (update of last discussion):
A) patches older than 1 month
Add a polite ping message, asking if the patch is still work in progress.
if pinged a month ago and no reaction, abandon patch.
A-2) Non committers
If no gerrit -1 or comment and code looks good, review cleanup and merge code.
if gerrit -1, add a polite ping message, asking if the patch is still work in progress
if pinged a month ago and no reaction, abandon patch
B) new patches from non-committers
Check code, and add a comment about the status
After 3 days, review cleanup and merge code if no comments in gerrit
=> quicker is better (Michael)
+ this is what we're looking for (Thorsten)
+ some organic learning where the touchy / fragile code is.
+ some code has active maintainers (Miklos)
+ others areas need mentoring.
+ one alternative could be (my preference), I add a list to the ESC agenda like:
+ Gerrit patches from non-committers: 64, oldest December 12
=> can we have links to particularly scancdalous / old ones (Michael M)
+ Gerrit patches to be abandoned:
+ Working with 5 newcomers at the moment
trying to get them to use dev, but it will only succeed if the get response
+ Preparing wiki pages with step-by-step overall
could do with help on how to use gdb for c++ tests (setting breakppoing in shared lib)
* l10n Update (Sophie)
+ nothing special; work ongoing.
* Commit Access
* Developer Certification (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy/Thorsten)

"easyHack, difficultyBeginner, skillCpp, topicCleanup"

* SVG import filters (Thorsten)
+ proposal: rip out old Thorsten + Fridrich filter.
+ Xisco, Regina and Christina kindly helped.
+ but still not so great at rendering SVGs.
+ Armin's SVGIO seems better for now

+ needAdvice at 79
+ whiteboard querying fix bumped the number.

+ should make querying easier, with auto-completed fields.

+ tdf#96172 - Crash on opening DOCX
+ bibisected; anything futher QA can do?
