[ got the framewok into master ]

[ up-loading a repo with 29 builds for testing, the bundle after
git GC is 340Mb, 10Mb per build or so ]
+ Open a separate product - for pre-releases for Android & iOS (Cloph)
[ instead we can have people opt-in for Alpha / Beta / testing etc. ]
* Pending Action Items:
+ partition document test loads / run them on tinderboxen (Norbert)
[ stalled ]
+ need design for copying styles between templates (Cor Nouws/other UX?)

[ blocking getting an Android pre-release of this out ]
* Release Engineering update (Christian)
+ 4.1.4 RC2 - announced to public on Wednesday
+ current stable version, auto-update enabled tomorrow.
+ 4.2.0 RC1 - announced to QA and early-announce list
+ will be announced to the public shortly.
+ windows build has the enable-symbols option [whoot]
+ we have a Windows symbol server here:
+ [ did we test it ? (Kendy)
tested whether the symbols can be resolved with a tool (Cloph)
would appreciate QA guys doing real stack unwinding testing of
+ Then a Christmas break of 2x weeks in the schedule ...
+ 4.2 - next deadline Jan 6th. (hard code freeze and branch-off)
+ GSOC / Android & iOS remote control pre-releases for 4.2
+ 4.2 Feature freeze update / status
+ 4.2 MAB count - still v. high for this point in the cycle.
+ GL / chart pieces (Michael/Moggi)
[ tripple review for 4.2.1 ? ]
+ DataStreams re-work (Kohei)
[ huge change in this, but it's experimental only, needs to be cleaned
no objections, experimental only (Norbert) ]
+ please ensure that release notes are up-to-date:
+ FOSDEM/UX-Hackfest/LibreOffice 4.2.0 release all around the same date
+ good idea to prepare FOSDEM slides early (Bjoern)
+ should release before it - mid-week 30th or so (Norbert)
* Christmas break:
+ next ESC call on 9th January.
* Crashtest update (Markus)
+ cf. http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/crashtest/
new crash testing result is available (cf. the date & git hash)
All files tested, and the results are complete for the 1st time.
and that all odb files are not valid according to the validator
+ need to look at the standard (Lionel)
+ presumably some silly error ...
+ note that except by dumping firebird / hsqldb
database into the standard, we'll not get a fully interoperable std.
+ very helpful if you just add test files to given directory
for import/export crashers (Miklos)
+ implemented so that if you fix an export crasher.
+ just copy the file into: eg.
* FOSDEM (Kendy)
+ Should register our talks in Pentabarf
+ Standard Hotel 'Astrid' bookings to share at:
+ Usability hack-fest 2x days after FOSDEM:
+ good to register ...
* Certification update (Kendy/Bjoern/Stephan)
+ look into a new round next year.
* Update Dialog: Remove install button? (Robinson)
+ This has been broken for quite some time; Hide it until we can make it work ?
AI: + either hide, or better make it work (Andras / Kendy)
* QA asks: What's our message re: the last version in a release series? (Robinson)
+ what message do we give ? should we announce and/or transition users over to
the next release series sooner ? ie. don't update to a dead-end version ?
+ people filing bugs. vs. 4.0.6 (or sim.) should be made aware that the release
is not supported ? (Bjoern)
+ it's normal to have to tell people to update to file a bug (Norbert)
+ we make this reasonably clear in the release announcement (Michael)
+ less clear for people who are updating (Robinson)
+ sometimes we don't know if it is really the last (Norbert)
+ if someone tries to keep their ver. up-to-date; will select 4.0.6, if
we tell them we'd like them to update, the updater will not provide that
for them. The updater will say it's stable, the updater will tell them to
use a new version (Robinson)
+ should we move people more quickly to x.y.2 ? (Norbert)
+ no right answer really, but current solution is reasoanbly elegant:
+ not move people to a nominally less stable (albeit newer) version.
+ we always like bugs reported vs. the latest version.
+ particularly bad now - until we pull ~everyone up to 4.1.x when 4.2.0 is released
+ so we want to suggest that people go to a stable version (Robinson)
+ can we offer an optional upgrade to a newer series intead ?
** Unusual static & call split at this point, loosing European Talkyo'ans **
AI: + discuss optional new version upgrade next time ...
+ people are upgraded when micro version of newline >= currently installed version, but
can update people to newline after old line has been declared EOL - e.g. 4.0.6 has been
declared last of 4.0 → next release is 4.1.4 → have 4.0.x users download 4.1.4 in update-check
* still offered on DL-Page because NL-projects directly link to oldstable version
+ can we just show the last old version when that magic param is there in the URL? (Bjoern)
probably possible with some js-magic
=> discuss next time ...
* QA update (Robinson)
+ FDO flaky today, but appears to be up again
+ Please ping cloph/robinson if it continues to be flakey
+ Bugzilla Migration update
+ no news.
+ Need-advice bug list bits: Couple of bugs from a11y
=> make them MABs
