=> upgrade all 3.*.0 -> 4.0.0
+ done for two weeks
+ continue ns timestamp discussion & conclude (Stephan/Lionel/Thorsten)
+ best outcome is to break it completely incompatibly
+ some knock-on ODF / standardisation impact
+ minimal triage for good mentors for proposed easy hacks (Bjoern)
+ timed out on this AI
* Pending Action Items

* UX input (Astron)
+ new icon for impress remote merged and pending 4.0.1 release
* final gnumake removal: status & thanks (Bjoern)
+ Some fantastic work here, we now build everthing in
one gnumake process
+ build dependency graphing in a post prj/ world (Stephan)
+ need a tool for dependency graphing
+ will we get new circular dependencies ?
+ no library linking will help and make will fail
on circular deps (Norbert)
+ what is needed is a tool to parse the output of
"make -n -p" - that dumps all the rules (Michael S)
+ not as obvious as build lists were (yet)
+ the build.lst's were rotting anyway (Stephan)
+ a lint tool for make -n -p would be nice (Michael S)
AI: + write the start of a that tool (Michael)
+ then remove the prj/build.lst and d.lst files.
+ parse only the linktarget pieces (Bjeorn)
* merging external changes (Michael)
+ tool in contrib/dev-tools/scripts/annotate.pl
+ all non-trivial patches require sign-off from relevant
developer preferably ESC member and testing
+ and another sign-off for back-porting to -4-0
* decision / dropping stale xmerge filters (Andras)
+ drop the minimally functional / not installed ones (Caolan)
+ ActiveSync 3.5 (for win95), pocket word,
minicalc, htmlsoff, wordsmith
+ written often as mini samples / proof of concept.
+ decision: drop the unused filters, but retain the xmerge
* Coverity progress (Markus/Norbert/Caolan)
+ new build up-loaded, it'd be nice if more people would
register / help with the reports:
http://scan.coverity.com/user_register.html project: 'LibreOffice'
+ then send your account details to Markus / Norbert.
+ making good progress < 600 'high impact' reports left.
+ un-caught exception reports more or less useless, always
somewhere an exception is not declared.
* Automated crash on import test results (Markus)
+ still hurt by the toolchain bug on SLES11
AI: + chase temporary PTF for the server (Kendy)
+ not publish until we're confident there are no false-positive
* Certification Program (Stephan/Kendy/Bjoern)
+ sent out list to ESC of invitations, no objections now,
in one week - Cert. Program guys will async. certify
them all as approved.
* New features / improving communication (Joel)
+ How to identify new features quickly so QA can
tackle them (can devs put whiteboard status "NewFeature") ?
+ Enhancement bugs should be marked 'Resolved FIXED'
+ CC Dev's responsible on any bug reports
+ encourage 'works for me' comments in such bugs.
+ try to avoid impress remote / unity issues next time.
+ If a master bug is reported vs. a new feature in the first month
+ CC the dev responsible for the new feature.
+ If a feature is specific
* Hard Hacks:
fdo#61025 - Crash when adding a comment on a cell (Markus)
fdo#40594 - FILEOPEN .docx (MSO2010) does not show CHART object (Michael)
fdo#59932 - FILEOPEN: Text boxes with bulleted lists containing (Muthu)
fdo#37580 - Assign layout malfunction and crash on slide with formula (Thorsten)
AI: + can't reproduce in 4.1.x - can we get more details (Joel)
* QA update (Joel)
+ since 3.6.0 35% of our bugs were filed via the BSA (Joel)
+ under 150 unconfirmed vs. 4.0, help appreciated with triage.
+ QA will add signatures to triaging comments something like:
LibreOffice is powered by a team of volunteers, every
bug is confirmed (triaged) by human beings who mostly
give their time for free. We invite you to join our
triaging by checking out this link:
join us on freenode at #libreoffice-qa
Also, good bug reports help tremendously in making the
process go smoother, please always provide
reproducible steps (even if it seems easy) and attach
any and all relevant
+ QA added a projects page:
+ add new pieces of interest for QA there.

** http://bit.ly/VQfF3Q - has the latest query for un-fixed bisected bugs
+ hopefully will help people find successful bisections faster
AI: + export a more helpful link for next minutes (Kendy)
+ the bibisect is really excessively useful
