+ ABI / QA / Metrics / Testing / Release
+ round-robin: what we're working on & concerns.
+ build-baseline, release and SDK (Norbert)
+ mail/gerrit/firehose discussion (Bjoern)

* GSOC update (Cedric)
+ students should be working on writing up as of now etc.
+ assessments open on Monday (evening Europan time): 23rd
+ open until Friday.
+ lock mentors in a room at the conference util
they have filed
+ need them filled out to get to the Mentor summit
AI: + send small summary statements wrt. GSOC work - model is:
* Solver killing (Matus / Michael S)
+ most of the difficult work is done
+ now only one copy of dynamic libraries & executables in instdir
+ already working on Linux
+ working on static libraries
+ should save a chunk of size in the build-tree
+ around 4-5Gb if built with debug in the solver
+ always used to store it twice -> the solver
+ with instdir - store it 3x
+ will get it down to just once.
+ fixing library search path, so layer of link target is right
+ so can't link an extension vs. comphelper anymore
+ still some bits left in the solver
+ hopefully not as difficult to remove.
+ can we simplify scp2 bits a lot ? (Michael M)
+ no impact yet, but could be simplified a lot.
+ Thanks to Michael S, Matus & all the gnumake guys.
* QA update (Robinson)
+ noticed a couple of people CC'ing developers on bugs (Joel)
+ been an issue in the past - what's the story now
+ sberg - likes to be CC'd on bugs
+ moggi - thinks it is quite helpful
+ kohei - turned off CC notifications, so it's fine.
+ vmiklos - likes to see certain bugs
+ feel free to bug Robinson/Joel if you don't want to get CC'd
now and then.
+ only use for MABs / important ones (Michael M)
+ concern wrt. unconfirmed bug counts (Bjoern)
+ would like to reduce under 1000 at least
discuss at the conference (Robinson)
+150 -83 (+67 overall)
many thanks to the top six bug squashers:
Caolán McNamara 6
Cor Nouws 5
Lionel Elie Mamane 5
+ recruiting QA triage guys going well (Robinson)
+ should we have a top confirmers stat ? (Michael)
+ bit tough to work out the top triagers
+ can build some perl to dump that here if someone can come up
with a query (Michael M)
* Duplicated binary .doc filter (Miklos)
+ one from the dawn of time, and another in writerfilter
+ designed for code sharing initially
+ already quite a chunk of code-sharing between .doc and .docx
+ does anyone think writerfilter based .doc import should stay around ?
+ project a failure, going no-place (Caolan)
+ original plan - take working filter, and get everything to use it
+ convinced new filter will never go anywhere.
=> remove with prejudice.
+ tries to avoid MS interop issues (Michael S)
+ if we had someone with time, it would be good, but ...
+ no objection to removing it.
+ support from kendy
AI: + remove the obsolete code (Miklos)
* Lots of small patches in gerrit (Caolan)
+ Needing review, for 4.1 etc.
+ poking at the word import issus (Miklos)
+ otherwise help appreciated.
* bibisect staleness (Caolan)
+ makes it harder to fix master bugs
+ machine got stuck at Canonical, Bjoern chasing.
+ should get our own TDF / bibisect running
AI: + investigate tinderbox -> bibisect work (Cloph / Bjoern / Norbert)
+ needs either a big machine to compress it, or lots of disk (Norbert)
+ we already up-load binaries - can't we re-use these (Michael M)
+ chat more next week in Milan (Norbert/etc.)
+ Bjorn has a script he's working on here.
+ problem is hosting the big repo in public (Cloph)
+ Miklos has a personal bibisect repo he can share in Milan
one build per day, saves the dbgutil build each morning (Miklos)
+ Windows bibisect repo really important too (Markus)
+ 38,39,42 tinderboxes in parallel - could use Markus' to
