        + how do we define the "last bugfix release" (Kendy)
                + on the ML - 3.6.7 is an exception, with that, it will
                  already a year (Petr)
                + the lifetime should be ~6 - ~8 months (Petr)
        + sounds good to everyone

* UX input (Astron)
        + curious blog set this morning:
                + constructive points: UX for LibreOffice is not
                  at the tip of the spear yet
                + perhaps few corp. customers paying for fixes ?
                + agreed it is fundamentally a UX -hacker- resourcing
                  problem, we need more UX hackers somehow.
        + some work on design of templ. mgr ...
                + lots of good work by Raphael
        + tentative #3rd design for colour picker on-going
                + communcation was poor there
        + writer/image-rotation 90degree thought good.

* GSOC update (Cedric)
        + we were accepted as a mentoring organisation
        + lots of promising applicants showing up
        + Mentors need to register on Google Melange:
                + 
https://google-melange.appspot.com/gsoc/profile/mentor/google/gsoc2013?org=libreoffice
                + if you have an unusual account name - please
                  mail it to Cedric to get added.

* Internal galleries / and theme building (Michael)
        + why do we ship pre-canned galleries ?
        + can we build them under Windows these days ? (Caolan)
AI:     + look into Windows gallery builds (Michael)

* Getting on with the public headers issue (Bjoern)
        + no open issues on design if we do it
        + only open: if we do it and when.
        + if do it, do it before 4.1 otherwise wait for 4.1.2 (Norbert)
        + Advantages:
                + removes a chunk of Package_foo_inc makefiles
                + solves incremental build issues when header
                  is left in the solver.
                + probable improvements in build time for Win32
AI:             + mass-move & tweak of dmake stuff (Bjoern)
        + also propose to move external modules into an 'external' top-level
                + reduce the 200 top-levels around there.
                + love someone to do that

* Regression testing documents
        + Kendy will fix more today & tomorrow,
          Markus can then re-run the tests & blog

* Hard Hacks (Bjorn)
        + http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/HardHacks
        + should we continue to prioritise these ?
        + review of how the program is going
        + is it a working process? (Bjoern)
                + the idea is good, but prioritization is not ideal yet (Joel)
        + feedback from hard-hack fixes:
                + Markus: 3-4 days to fix - can have no more than 1 per month.
                + Caolan: some of the hard-hacks are too hard
                        + bugs from OO.o 2 era.
                        + there is a reason why they're not fixed yet
                + David: only fixed Hard-hacks accidentally while working on MABs
                + Cedric: fixed a few in December
                        + "Template Mgr bugs more annoying than the hard-hacks"
                        + thus prioritising them.
        + developers in general think:
                + there is lower hanging & more useful / fast fixing elsewhere
                + some bugs are really annoying & really easy
                        => should be fixed fast.
        + continue it for one more month:
                + see if there is more movement, else get rid /
                  change it somehow (Joel)
                        + one longer-term hard-hack per dev ?
                + if 2-3 are solved in the next month: continue as is
        + we need need more aggressive management and bug roll-over.
                + if something is not getting fixed, try something else

* Certification Program (Stephan/Kendy/Bjoern)

* QA update (Joel)
        + LibreOffice 4.0 issues for professional use (Rainer)
                + what level of usability do we expect for each release.
                    - should we focus more on regressions for certain release
                + concerns about MAB list roll-over to 4.0 etc.
                + reading bugs all day makes everyone down (Cedric)
                + lists of unconfirmed bugs
                + nasty bugs of the moment ...
                        + http://tinyurl.com/brvfmen
                        + http://tinyurl.com/d75b5jr
        + unconfirmed bug list down to and stabilised at 230 or so
                + nice work [!].
        + Voting on bugs (Bjoern)
                + rename 'voting' to 'this bug affects me'
                + no promise for lots of affected people fixing them
                + the data is useful for devs if it is used positively (Michael)
                + useful in launchpad to filter stuff (Bjoern)
                + concern wrt. not getting E-mail on voting (Michael)
AI:             + ask Tollef to rename & enable - IFF we don't get mailed (Bjoern)
        + 101 unconfirmed vs. 4.0, help appreciated with triage.
