 * Branding for 7.0
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130778
   + see also https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Marketing/Branding/Ideas
   + will be on this list until it's solved
   + CfP1 https://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/design/msg09227.html
   + CfP2 https://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/design/msg09272.html
   => put the ideas into the program and wait for comments

 * Overwriting Writer styles does not overwrite changes to Marginalia paragraph style
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130719
   + define _all_ internal styles in template Style > Default?
   + MikeK: 
     1) all the styles in shipped templates (maintenance burden, possible implementation problem)
     2) Load Styles to always load full set of standard styles (would break current workflow / possible disallow the opposite need)
        optionally, "[x] Overwrite standard styles absent in the template with defaults") 
     3) NOTABUG/WONTFIX (maybe with reanming the function "Load Styles from Template")
 * "Load styles" should not import content
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131347
   + rename "Load Style" to "Load Template" and rename/reorganize the checkboxes?
   + NAB (MikeK)
 => preference to NAB (renaming/documentation) (Muhammet)

 * Make font installation optional
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=91886
   + big +1, ideally as extension (Heiko)
   + good idea (Muhammet)
   + disable font installation in the wizard might be unintentionally and cannot be reverted later (Muhammet)
   => summary "Make fonts extensionizable", hardware/platform -> All, Block -> clean

 * Gallery updates
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131319 gallery: update Symbol gallery
     + looks good and could hold also what's now planned for bullets
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131318 gallery: add Widget gallery
     + too many items, not so relevant though named as a use case some times 
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131308 Gallery: update Computer gallery
     + don't see any need for symbols under "Computer"
     + maybe replace COmputer by Widgets
   + any improvement is good (Cor)
   => go ahead
   + another idea for a gallery would be music notes

 * PRINTING: Option to print grid in Draw
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=68662
   + could be done per extension (moved), implemented to printing options (new), 
     or realized as a layer (wfm)
   + sounds reasonable, sometimes you want to print the grid (Cor)
   + grids are helper functions and can be complex (thickness, size, strightness, color etc. might need to be configurable)
   + see also https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130995
   + ship (a couple of) templates with grids to a) solve the actual problem and b) illustrate how its done
   + can also be shared as extension
   => do it
