Easy hacks that need code pointers
    + (export all pages in Draw)
    + (labels at pages frame in Draw)
    + Move easyhacks and proposed EH into the wiki?
      + Go with that
    + ESC decision how to handle EH without codepointer
      + proposed easyhacks will receive keyword easyhack but need further infos
      + without codepointer/mentor set NEEDINFO

Confirmed easy hacks
    + (more arrowheads)
    + (Quickstarter)

Enhancement requests that could be solved per extension
     + (eyedropper tool/color reader; 
requires access to statusbar)

Google Summer of Code

  * Template Manager (Akshay)
        + Removal of remote view from template manager in 5.3 (Akshay)
            + dead and buggy code, created long time ago (Akshay)
            + hidden if experimental mode is not enabled, crashes frequently
            + Thumbnails are required for each template in template view area, which is not 
possible for remote files
                + No way to download previews for each available template
            + We have a dedicated Remote Files Dialog since LO 5.1, which does the job much better 
            + Its a pity but go with this change (all)

  * Area Fill (Rishabh)
      + Pattern tab commit -
        + Adds the functionality to create/add a new list of pattern presets different from bitmaps
        + Problem of corrupt .sob file - fixed
        + MSO pattern presets recognized as hatch in LO
          + The MSO presets in - Not 
compatible with LO
            + LO presets - 8x8 pixels
            + MSO presets - 32x32 pixels
          + Can modify using hatch Background and line color listbox
      + Bitmap tab commit -
        + Moved the controls from Area tab.
      + Multiple palettes in Area tab -
      Points to be discussed - 
        + Controls to be hidden/removed from the bitmaps tab.
        + Multiple palettes - expected behavior on clicking Add, Delete and Modify button
          + can't trace back the palette list from which the color is selected
          + bug report -
          + options
            + perhaps another option is to store the color in the document (Samuel)
            + mind: adding a color to the standard palette or any other one from both tools > 
options > colors
              and from the dalog Area, tab Color, it is stored in the according <name>.soc in 
              + wishing to prevent people to remove colors from a palette, prolly is interferring 
heavily with that
              + if new colors are added to a user.soc, that would allow to make existing palettes 
              + Could colors from user.soc be shown at the bottom of any selected palette? (Cor)
              + Could show them in a separate frame (Jay)
            + this all is a different subject than 'recent colors' - that should proly be 
implementedin the same way
              as the pick-list for recent documents, i.e. in registrymodifications.xcu (if it 
doesn't work) (Cor)
            -> Final decision postponed to next week

  * Progress of Sidebar Improvements (Susobhan)
      + To be discussed - Shapes Tab ( ):
          - Layout ( )
            -> Go with file/folder approach because of consistency and easier coding
          - New categories (Cisco, Flowchart etc.) - who will add symbols?
            -> Ignore that part in the survey (will be implemented into Gallery, if available)
      + Working on Shapes Tab.
      + Page Styles Panel merged to Master. Page Writer Deck ready(bugs?)
      + Import Bitmap Button added to Area Content Panel

   * Notebookbar (Szymon, Kendy, Samuel)
       + Toolbar/Sidebar/Notebookbar button size
          + separate option for each or one for all?
            + postponed (screenshot for sidebar with large icons needed)

Enhancements and proposals

    + Go to page Dialog (Samuel/Akshay)
      + Adobe Acrobat type 
(text field)
      + do the patch and lets see
      + rather push the navigator to the max (Heiko)

    + Emoji toolbar control (Samuel/Akshay)
      + (External Library)
        + Con Svg: Size, Modification capabilties, Coding effort
        + Pro Svg: Fancy, Platform independent
        -> Cons are obsolete when there is an option how emojis are handled (svg or chars)
        -> Start with chars and extend by svg if there is time
