Present: Cor, Heiko


 * file Open type menu has about 175 items, please organize
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=128113
   + drop the rarely used in favor of all files -> disagree (OP in c6)
   + non-clickable section "header" entries (Nick, c10)
   + put more similar types into groups like all ODF, all Microsoft and 
     remove individual entries (Andreas) -> becomes a long text (Cor)
   + rename more consistently (Andreas) -> reverts previous effort (Ilmari)
   + likely a duplicate (Cor)
   + it is well organized (OP got asked to check with master), 
     so resolve it as WFM (Stuart)
   => WFM (will keep it active in case there is a bug)

 * FORMATTING: Page Number field inserts without its proper character style
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=128146
   + rather clean up the list and remove obsolete character styles (Heiko)
   + character styles are not set automatically (Cor)
   + cleaning the list of character styles is not urgently needed (not 
     too many in the list), dangerous as maybe used by some function/extension
   + improve the list by making the styles different to default -> diffcult, 
     a lot of effort for not much benefit
   => WF

 * NAVIGATOR: Rename "Text Frame" to "Frame"
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=128227
   + dont see a blocker for renaming - neither a big advantage (Heiko)
   + a lot of work for l10n and documentation (Regina)
   + makes sense (Cor)
   => go for it; poke documentation

 * Warn when there's no OpenSymbol font installed
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=128226
   + until tdf#101174 is solved, use a notification bar in math in case the font is missing
   + include at ordinary installation (Regina, Cor) and maybe warn if not available
   + warnings should be actionable so this notification needs a button "Install now" (Heiko)
   => go for it

 * allow each deck to keep its own width in the sidebar
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=128180
   + see also https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115981
   + likely a duplicate, will check later (Heiko)
   + previous decision was to not have a fixed width across tabs, see tdf#90374
   + we havent come to a conclusion in the team and kept the status quo (see 90374, c31)
   => WF


  * Short discussion about a draft about a Style Inspector and Highlighter
  + goal is to attract students for next year GSoC
  + comments are welcome
