  * Analysis of the Calc survey
    + preliminary results are promising
    + todo: improve colors, margins, add "Unknown" at Likert chart,
      SUS per expertise
    + todo: text analysis

  * Calc: Counter-intuitive "Default" context menu for comments makes
    them blue and changes font
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138842
    + remove Default command
    => no further comment, do it

  * Right-click to group columns and rows
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141327
    + having an explicit function-key (F12) covers the group/ungroup feature well
      enough, rather vote to remove the hide/show entries from the context menu
      and give them a related short-cut e.g. Ctrl+F12 / Shift+F12 (Sascha)
      + shortcuts are nothing without a menu where you learn it
      + having different methods to reach a goal is good practice (Heiko)
    + also the context menu entries are named "Hide Rows", "Show Rows", "Hide
      Columns" and "Show Columns" while the main menu entries are simply named
      "Hide" and Show"; IF the context entries are keep up the main menu should
      changed for consistency (Sascha)
      + Simply Hide/Show can be done when the Column/Row entry comes before,
        it's the contextual variant of the label
    + also you can group the same rows/columns infinite times, that is clearly a
      bug and should be fixed with a if-range-already-grouped::than-ungroup
      statement; this would allow the use of the same short-cut (F12) to
      group/ungroup and free Ctrl+F12 e.g. for the hide/show feature (Sascha)
      + different topic
    + adding two (actually one in most scenarios) entries to the context menu
      doesn't hurt and educates people to consider grouping rather than
      hiding (Heiko)
    => keep topic alive

  * Add option for preserving aspect ratio of an Area Image fill
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138119
    + open the area settings with Set Background Image (Heiko)
    => good for a tentative patch
