                + delayed by one week by misc. issues / build troubles
                + important fixes added too late post rc1, requiring an rc3
                + these things happen - no change to overall scheduling
        + 3.5.2 status ...
                + rc1 is tagged / branched as libreoffice-3-5-2
                        + lots of bug fixes here.

* new Windows tinderbox (Norbert)
        + expensive new hardware, from-clean compile in around an hour

        + previous fastest time was ~4 hours
        + plans to work on ccache with windows (Norbert)
        + Mac - similar duration, but with a warm ccache ~15mins, so

* QA update (Rainer)
        + mostly business as usual
                + too few volunteers reviewing the incoming reports
                + users using the bugzilla assistant are often quite
                  bad and need more review.
        + QA team call tomorrow
                + proposals to encourage good bug filers etc.
        + Bugzilla assistant
                + needs better introductory text, and fewer
                  version etc. fields
                + more hackery much appreciated.
        + annotate RTF bugs with 'rtf_filter' to break-down regressions

        => no action for now

          things left & right.
        + splitting calc controller apart, looking forward to
          Matus' input.

* Regressions
        + Cedric doing some digging - one 'regression' for an
          OpenOffice 2.0 feature, vs. 1.1 etc. not funny
                + doing a review, unclear what's going on

* closing fixed bugs
        + about 1/2 of the calc regressions are already fixed in 3.5
                + 3.4.x will get no more updates
                        + no need to explain more, close them.
