   + https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/46878/
   + https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/46757/2
   + New floating widget with quick access to recent/favorites (Heiko)
     or small button only that just opens the dialog (Jay)
   + don't mind (Consgor, Stuart)
   + Notebookbars provide the new widget (Jay)
   => old standard toolbar will be used

 * Labels at the right pane on the customization dialog
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=114701
     or just have a tooltip
   + add labels (Andreas)
   + get rid of all labels in favor of tooltips (Jay)
     + tooltips are not shown at screenshots making it hard to illustrate in the help (Csongor)
   + labels above controls (Csongor, Stuart)
   => place text above controls using Search, Category, Function, and Description on the left
      and Scope, Target, Function, Customize right
   + use "Target" or make it dependent on tab -> Target is easier for l10n
   + change +/- to add/delete or any other text?
   => tooltips are the better way to explain the function

 * Standard palette rework
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=114719
   + original request was to swap the names purple and violet
   + introduction of the new palette would require to redo new gradients and table styles
     in order to get proper standard colors
