* FOSDEM Usability hack-fest:
    + https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Hackfest/FOSDEM2014#Participants
    + register now - only i


* Crashtest update (Markus)
    + cf. http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/crashtest/


* Certification progress (Kendy/Bjoern/Stephan)
    + waiting for replies from nominated candidates 1/4 so far.


* Base issue 70703 (Lionel)
     + https://bugs.freedesktop.org/70703
     + fixed by heroic patch from Caolan - vile re-enterancy issue.


* Basic API changes (Michael S)
     + concerns in the community about 
          "stardiv.Toolkit.UnoDateFieldControls" who has until 4.0 a
          "date" property who is a ISO representation of the datevalue.
         + some types of properties changed.
         + need for ulgy version checks in the code & cost of
           testing / qualification of that etc.
         + not all people have these skills.
     + really important not to break the Basic API & need to consider
       more if any given change on Basic programmers.
         + C++/Java developers - often more able to cope, and/or it's
           a hopeless ABI situation.
         + Basic programmers should be treated better.
     + need to work harded to keep Basic compatible.
         + eg. adding methods to interfaces keeps Basic happy.
     + sadly this would have been easy to do differently, but hard to fix now (Lionel)
         + lots of complaints about dates, most of the problems around times
         + having a 2nd time property with a new name, might make read/write of
           the old value change the stored value; something of a balance.
     + if we had had feedback / testing around 'Date' / earlier interaction
       we could have easily improved that (Michael)
     + Concern that we get expertise & regression tests and/or suites of sample
       StarBasic files / code that we can analyse.
         + who has that ? with that we can avoid breaking things.
         + not always obvious that a particular API is actually used (Michael S)
            + or is it just an internally used function ?
**   + want a volunteer to help collect complex StarBasic
         + Xray runs a ton of stuff before hitting the 1st dialog (Miklos)
     + A cleaner way than version-checking is to use reflection to ask what
       type the method returns (Lionel)
         + in this particular case.


* automated code re-formatting / de-crustification (Kendy)
    + Previous consensus was to decide not to decide ...
    + is the time - now ? (before we branch)
    + are we agreed on what to do ?
        + ~anything better than nothing.
        + why do we need this?
    + should we de-crustify the -4-0 & -4-1 branches too ?
    + also: how do we _keep_ the code uncrusty:
        + git hook?
        + regular reruns
            + once a week?
    + just before major branchoff?


* Next large-scale cleanups (Kendy)
    + .ui conversion surely (?)
    + Tackle >>= replacement ?
        + any.getAsIntegerWithDefaultValueForGoodMeasureNamesMustBeVeryLong(3);


* QA update (Robinson)
   + down a good number of bugs this week, hoping to continue it
     + some are test bugs, but thanks to more people working in preparation for 4.2 !
     + lots of gerrit pushing & associated closing.


   + weekly 'need_advice' bug ping for help:
     + "FORMATTING text:use-soft-page-breaks not honoured"
       + https://bugs.libreoffice.org/show_bug.cgi?id=43692
AI:        + take a look (Miklos)
    + Inconsistent behavior of table.Borderline in Writer and Calc
       + https://bugs.libreoffice.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45644
           + punted to needinfo, calc cells are a hot potato: pass it on.


   + Currently have 9 blockers
       + noticed a lot of these; five vs. 4.2
       + blockers don't really exist in LibreOffice -> 'MAB' concept instead.


   + Accessibility concerns from QA re:lack of consistent keyboard movement
     through the various UI widget based panels
       + e.g. Start Center and Sidebar
       + more extensive notes around; be good to address them.
       + concerns wrt. reduced mobility
       + good to get bugs logged vs. that
       + start-center / template mgmt / sidebar - not great a11y
AI:    + file individual bugs to get to Easy Hack (Robinson)
          + would be good to have some docs on how to use the poke
            tools for 'ordinary developers' to test / develop on Linux (Caolan)
AI:       + get some doc pointers on how to use Accerciser, and how to
            test / improve this (Jacobo)


   + Bugzilla Migration:
       + going really well, lots of URL changes.
       + Thanks to everyone who has been helping prepare
       + QA brainstormed abbreviations in place of fdo#
          + blo#1234, lob, tdf, libo Thoughts ?
             + 'bz' suffix ?
             + lbz# ? (Thosten)
             + lo# (Bjoern)
             + or assume we're -the- tracker => no prefix (Thorsten)
                + never works.
       + the guys doing the work should choose.


   + Fixing MIMEtype on attachments
       + talked to bugzilla developers, should be easy to automate
         fixing mimetypes; but Q' is - developers hard-hit by E-mails.
             + should we do it all in 1 lump, or slowly.
       + We can use a special account 'MIMEtype Fixer' so anyone who wishes can filter-out those 
emails
       + can we turn off notifications, do it, and turn it on again (Caolan)
             + off for 30mins ... no-one truly cares wrt. mime-type
       + admins currently spending time


* KDevelop awesomeness:
AI: + Make a video about the KDevelop awesomeness (Bjoern)
