  * May-20: First steps
    * Started to investigate the current status (Heiko)
      + 68 arrows, 92 bullets, 18 computer, 108 diagram...
      + ~90% as svg but some png
      + various sizes for svg and png
      + svg with gradients are not always well defined (path for primitives)
      + gradients are badly interpreted (tdf#64464)
      -> too many objects without a good concept
    * Web wizard is buggy and very outdated
      + Agreed (Samuel: tdf#99967 )
      + Drop homepage category from gallery (Jay)
    * Started to create new objects (Heiko)
      + e.g. BPMN
      + simple shapes and grouped does not work well (e.g. glue point issues 
tdf#45864, tdf#96419, depend on style)
      + better use custom shapes (Regina per email) 
        + works weird for styles and formatting
      + no UI for custom shapes!
    * Contraints for factory gallery items 
      + one size, e.g. 1cm by 1cm
      + only vector graphics
      + one format at best odg
        + Samuel: needs discussion, e.g. odg is a document format
        + Jay: there is a bug report -
      + min 10, max 50 items per category
      + max 20 categories
        + Could be easily more when searching is possible (Jay)
      + careful naming of objects
      + ...
