if you see it; please add Yousuf Philips & Adolfo Jayme Barrientos

+ ok with doing that (JanI).
7 open right now, will update them shortly. ]

Oliver on vacation this week (Thorsten)
Marco working on improving glew (Michael)
+ Plan to revert most of that & switch to a glew based approach when done
Concern wrt. run-time configuration (Thorsten)
+ stuff that will never work with S/W openGL - why build & ship it ?
+ adds fat to something that doesn't need it.
+ why force OGL charts on everyone.
+ still up for OpenGL only as a future.
Goal to have a custom installation ? (Kendy)
+ pkg maintainers like a minimal installation too
+ something that has to be re-compiled: lower value.
+ if able; compile just once - completely headless.
+ right - but the usual runtime optional feature is a separate shared library / uno component (Thorsten)
prefers to have technical details hashed out by people working on that part (Thorsten)
* Release Engineering update (JanI)
+ 5.0.6 RC1 - due April 12th.
+ approaching 5.0.6 - last release (Bjoern)
+ would be good to fix bibisected regressions (Writer only for starters)
between 4.4 and 5.0.6
+ mail on the list.
+ 220.127.116.11 (RC2) - due March 29th: Tuesday morning.
+ done, due to problems
+ some windows / firebird problems.
+ VM - failed on firebird; debugging why.
+ Cloph made win/lin binaries
+ push to mirrors outstanding
+ Android & iOS Remote
* Documentation (Olivier)
+ Chapter 2 "Setting up LibreOffice" updated to 5.1 in Draft LO 5.1 @ODFAuthors
+ Missing information on OpenCL & LO for documentation purposes, CMIS too
+ Patches committed into helpcontent2/
+ Patches submitted to gerrit for review
+ some infra pieces need addressing too.
+ one XSLT thing to add (Kendy)
+ like re-using original XSLT approach
+ should be possible not to have to touch the existing XHPs
+ XHPs should be improved (Olivier)
+ eg. using MathML to draw equations in help.
+ happy with JS if necessary.
+ will be for indexing (Kendy)
* l10n (Sophie)
+ work ongoing, no problems.
* GSoC 2016 (Thorsten/JanI)
+ 3 admin volunteers: janI, Moggi, Thorsten
+ Still have many proposals to evaluate
+ Quality as usual, but enough good proposals to keep mentors busy
+ Some mentors still have not pressed "I want to mentor" button
+ go press this button on at least one student.
AI: + accept invite for mentoring (Muthu)
+ April 1st (no joke) last day for submitting easyHacks
+ April 11th, last day for slot requests
+ need to be reviewed by this date.
+ propose deadline of next week for accepting mentoring (JanI)
+ poking on IRC etc. appreciated in advance (Bjoern)
+ go to https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/dashboard/
+ and review - please check the proposals for
those with a title of your idea.
+ If you have multiple google accounts and pressing login just throws you
back at the page, going to plus.google.com, click on your ava in the top
left corner, click "add account" to get to another acocunt, and than it
'obviously' might work better ...
+ we will want an ordering - done in a spreadsheet or somesuch later, post initial 'want to mentor' deadline.
* UX Update (Kendy)
+ missed the meeting last friday.
* Crashtest update (Caolan)
+ ? import failures, ? export failures, ? coverity ?

+ Plan is to craft it according to the Japanese
Mini-Conference, with a broader local community appeal

+ Ankara, Turkey
+ April 30th - May 1st.
+ plan do an overview talk on Friday (Michael)

* Mentoring Update (JanI)
+ gerrit: 207 open patches of which 139 can be merged if no open comments
129 from contributors of which 81 can be merged if no open comments
+ please review people's patches.
+ We badly need to get easyhacks evaluated and commented or merged
+ important for GSOC
+ good to work from earliest submitted (Thorsten)
+ had a busy GSoC week
+ been 'ignoring' proposals for other mentors (only admins can do that)
+ After IRC discussion, started to abandon "impossible" patches imidiatly
+ This is not done lightly and only after consulting at least 1 other developer
+ Preparations for Gran Canary hack-fest
+ Get the community involved in QA work
+ 300 open non-easy-hack bugs with patches on them (Bjoern)
+ filed an easy hack to get a list of these.
* lcov stuck since 2016-02-28 (Bjoern)
+ Do we have a SPoF there ?
+ Can we get at least one or two TDF infra guy able to kick it back in service ?
+ some update broke lcov.
+ not stuck, building religiously (Norbert)
+ but NSSupgrade missing some linking argument.
+ some tests running - when linked, don't have CFLAGS/LDFLAGS
+ can we use system-nss (Michael S)
AI: + switch lcov profile to system-nss (Norbert)
+ Jenkins used for this (Norbert)
+ would like sysadmin oversight (Bjoern)
+ should it spam people as/when it fails ?
+ there is the ML for Jenkins failed builds (Stephan)
+ never seen the lcov bits there.
* Commit Access
* Developer Certification (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy/Thorsten)
+ pending next cycle: after GSOC storm.
+ quarterly ? (Thorsten)
+ not hyper-urgent ? (Stephan)
