[ assuming good faith - chatty message to help people ]

+ schedule a new coverity build (moggi)
[ tried during the weekend,
coverity analysis takes longer than 24hours etc. (Caolan)

+ not the problem still timing out ... ]

+ great work there, huge community.
* Release Engineering update (Christian)
+ 4.3.0 Beta 1 status
+ tagged yesterday.
+ branch libreoffice-4-3 created
+ Windows build delayed, will be tonight / tomorrow
+ MacOS 10.6 needed a patch, not exactly the tag
+ only Beta1 -> no need for a separate tag.
+ investigating Windows test failures (spellchecking)
+ a python issue related to UI mode - not seen when
running from the terminal; different return value
internally; around stdout/in etc.
+ now patched.
+ will run on XP and later without crashing.
+ currently a problem with Java runtime on Windows XP
+ problems with Tools->Macros->Python ... tries to init
AI: + create / promote a 4.3 MAB for WinXP/Java (Cloph)
+ 4.2.5 RC1 status ...
+ deadline next Monday: get fixes into gerrit so on the radar ...
+ ... Now Feature Frozen ...
+ tripple approval needed for new features.
+ bug bug fixes welcome on the branch with no review.
+ Late features ?
+ libreofficekit bits / rename etc.
+ OpenGL pieces / status
+ experimentalising 3D chart bits.
+ impress work as well.
+ some changes in language listbox (Eike)
+ switching to a combo-box, so can enter an arbitrary lang_tag
+ due today.
+ preserving & rendering OOXML Artistic Effects (Jacobo)
+ Android / iOS remote
+ will build a new version with buttons to start/exit remote
+ Credits update:
+ crediting translators (Cloph)
+ pointing to the pootle page, that lists translators.
AI: + should link to it there (Cloph)
+ page is usually updated for a final release when we update
the source code.
+ some bugs:
+ 'Contributors to Bundled Templates' - oddly coloured heading.
+ can we separate rows better for readability ?
+ embolden bold name perhaps ?
* 4.3 Features Page (Michael)
* UX Update (Bjoern)
+ getting into the start menu a 'get involved' button
-> a help / extensions -> in start center
+ add a get involved button linking to the web / feedback page
+ or replace the help button in the start center (not the prime context for help).
* Distro branches & commits (Michael)
+ it would be great to see what others are doing in distro branches
so everyone's product is in git.
+ have to work on a quilt patch queue (Bjoern)
+ has a script to do this to/fro.
+ but that would be a rebase for each roundtrip ...
+ half of the patches are Debian pkging specific.
+ relatively few patches (Caolan)
+ some patches adjust things to specific deps, so it
doesn't build with a normal 'make' (Bjoern)
+ can we give commit access to these guys ? (Michael)
+ can have a group in gerrit for a specific branch ? (Norbert)
+ already have the distro top-level distro/ ...
+ expect normally people to have commit access, but for special
cases use the group (Norbert)
+ do we really need it ? can't we give a hard stare (Stephan)
+ offer full access.
AI: + can we teach the IRC bot. to not show distro commits (Miklos)
* Crashtest update (Markus)
+ calc seems reasonably good still,
+ writer has some issues & validation bits around DOCX etc.
+ around 75%+ invalid currently.
+ worth noting validation is vs. strict (Miklos)
+ we export transitional etc.
+ some elements written twice, and ordering issues.
* Certification Committee (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy)
* C++11 for 4.4 ? (Stephan)
* Decided that 4.3 is the last version for OSX 10.6
+ would love to drop 10.7 too (Norbert)
+ PPC is currently a volunteer effort, publishing builds.
+ is there any 32bit only hardware (Michael)
+ yes, but not supported by Apple for a while (Norbert)
+ good to quantify the size of that pool (Michael)
+ 10.8 & 10.9 -> 80% of the market today.
+ we have only one 10.6 build box today ...
* Also concerned wrt. Linux / CentOS builds
+ do we want to bundle libstdc++ again ?
+ or can we pull up the Linux baseline ?
+ makes sense to have RHEL6 as the baseline (Michael S)
+ gcc doesn't support it there, but gets rid of KDE3
and allows KDE4 enabling
* Decision is to punt to the future post 4.3 etc.
* Hackfests (Bjoern)
+ Paris Hackfest:
+ June 27-28th
