community building/communication (Joel/Florian?)
   - QA Wochenende in Essen
     - need more people
     - few newcomer
     - bibisect for windows very popular
       - ping Norbert to go forward with it
     - timebased releases still perceived as a problem
       - stable is essentially blocked -- it is open for half a year for
         critical bugs only and hard hacks are the way to communicate those
         to development without overcommitment (Thorsten/Bjoern)
       - more testers of master/3.x.0 needed
       - marketing storm always hits 3.x.0
         - has to be stable enough to prevent backslash
         - needs to be announced at this point in time to allow early adopters
       - auto updater (Windows)
         - initial troubles should be solved now
         - activate for which minor? 3.x.2/3.x.3
         - maybe offer a update button without popup for early-adopters
           in addition (pull-model on request, push at .2/.3) (Bjoern)
     - BSA API
       - some reservations:
         - we have no trouble with the number of initial bug reports
         - too easy bugfiling lowers the quality of reported bugs, creating
           even more work for bugwranglers
         - we are in need of bug wranglers, not so much reporter
         - most of 'too late bugs' are not 'not reported', but 'not visible to
           dev as a critical bug'
       - instead, we should create a landing page on the end of the BSA?
         - invite people to:
           - confirm bugs
           - verify fixed bugs (mostly to motivate more people into running
         - maybe even have a menu entry in About for that?
