Present: Liam, Cor, Heiko


 * Lockfiles can be overridden
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=120829#c2
   + improve wording
   + suggested "$file is open for editing by $user on system $hostname and was opened at $time"
     makes sense, if possible
   + usual behavior is to open read-only and provide an infobar, that would be nice
   + message needs to be discussed
     + "Opening editable potentially ends up in data loss when more users access the same file."
     + checkbox "[ ] Open editable anyway"
     + buttons [Open]   [Cancel] (no "Open read only")
     => boil it for a while

 * Unable to set different data paths per component
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59764
   + vote for tools > options > paths per module (Heiko)
   + see also https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101609 (all modules options access)
   + decided in the past to close as wf because files are stored per project/task/scenario and the path 
     depends rather upon this than on Documents/Writer, Documents/Calc etc. (Cor)
   => close as WF (tdf#101609 makes sense but requires a proposal)

 * When importing media (eg images) to libreoffice it would be friendly to save some metadata
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119563
   + finalize the list
   + ensure ODF spec (Cor)
   + whether set comes from DCMES (c4) or MWG (c2) doesnt matter
   + less/not too much info is better (Heiko)
   + request to store path (could be done in Source or location created)
   + request for date would override date of creation
   + editable properties could be description, keywords but the rest is static
   => go for it
