  * Template Manager (Akshay)
    * May-27:
      + Integrating the template manager in Impress 
         (replacing the Presentation Wizard)
        + Impress Templates should be shown when starting Impress
        + Do we need any options from the presentation wizard?
        + Concerns that template manager gets too crowded 
           with unnecessary functions (Heiko)
        + Remove the presentation wizard (Samuel)
        + Inform the community about the plans (blog post) and remove 
           the menu entry first (in 5.2)
        + Then remove the uno cmd & underlying code in 5.3 
           if not too many complaints
      + Change Thumbnail Dimensions in start center 
          (More Space for Template Title)
        + Cleaner look, good idea (Heiko)
        + Afraid of preview for regular documents (Jay)
      + Should changing application filter reset category? tdf#85794
        + Yes, resetting the filter set the filter to none (All Category)
        + Close the bug
      + Change highlight colour in Template Manager
        + Should be defined by the system theme, i.e. don't change it
      + Do we want inline renaming of templates
        + No, using the context menu to rename templates is enough (all)
        + Drop the inline renaming
      + Show an indicator for the default templates, 
         e.g. a favorites star (Heiko)  
  * Progress of Area Fill project (Rishabh)
    * May-27:
      + Color tab completed; patch split into two commits
      + Hex value is still under rework (reuse of color picker code)
      + Idea to remove CMYK and have only RGB (Jay)
      Planned for next week:
      + Keep origin color left hand static
      + Replace color dropdown by palette drowdown at solid tab
      + New color picker for gradient color chooser
