+ otherwise, a regular week.
* l10n (Sophie)
+ helping some students from Cameroon university
+ adding locales to the code to complete translations
+ Yemba, Fulfulde etc.
+ learning how to use IRC.
* Improving Jenkins verification (Miklos)
+ could we add Android & Clang with our plugins enabled
+ cf. mail to the list.
+ would be happy to help setup
+ would like it supported by LODE (Norbert)
+ waiting for three lingering boxes (Norbert)
+ clang on Linux should be easy
+ not urgent, but nice to have (Miklos)
+ default clang plugins are good.
+ controversial ones get moved to store/
+ new plugins should be tested, validated & agreed on (Norbert)
+ this is moot - what actually happens (Stephan)
+ various people do build with this, and do change the code
to make it comply
+ not so much a question of enforcing things, but cleaning
up before vs. after master.
+ new commits adding plugins would go through CI (Michael)
