 * Dialog control tooltips (Heiko)
     + Consistency of every control to have a tooltip (Heiko)
     + Lots of translation work to add tooltips to .ui files (Jay, Heiko)

            + nothing when hover the tree / search field - nothing (Jay)
            + no tooltips in the dialogs either (Jay)
     + always popping up tooltips in the dialogs would be annoying (Jay)
         + in toolbars it's fine, as buttons dont have labels and only icon which isnt always 
understood (Jay)
     + we can have the status quo: no tooltips in the dialogs (Heiko)
         + want to either have it everywhere, or not at all (Heiko)
         + what blocks us from allowing it, and evaluate when there is
           the first dialog that has tooltips? (Kendy)
     + a11y concern (Heiko)
         + tested that, works fine (Jay)
         + every control has the associated label (Jay)
         + some corner cases: W and H instead of "width" and "height" (Jay)
             + improved the labels there
     + would like to see a dialog with such tooltips in action first, before we
       take a decision like "everything has to have tooltips" (Kendy)
         + not happy about this, but can live with this (Heiko)

     + guidelines in general:
         + should codify what is a result of how things are progressing, never
           should be used as "it is in the guidelines, now you all have to change
           the implementation"

 * Area tab heavily increases size of dialog
   + Issues with high dpi likely because of fix values (Tomaz)
     + please revert the patch
     + double-check then with various DE

 * Color palettes
   + all changes are in 5.3
   + Blog post draft finished
     + Read over it once again (Jay), publish next week (Heiko)
