* Crashtest update (Markus)
+ new results look a little bit better
+ 664 export crashers, 78 import crashers
+ few more import crashers, few fewer export.
* Wikihelp (Kendy)
+ getting mental traction
+ Need to merge Markus' extended tooltips
+ 3rd .po file - next to UI, normal help etc.
+ can we merge them all into the .ui files ? (Caolan)
+ as part of help - lots of incomplete translations (Kendy)
+ avoid annoying translators.
+ so have a new .po file, to avoid undue irritation.
+ done as a normal key/value file (Markus)
+ extended tooltips for non-dialogs too.
+ Improve conversion to wiki markup, to finally kill the
original XML description.
=> use wiki as the source, and have metadata in there.
in your browser.
+ so could ship off-line.
used by OpenStack / on-line help.
+ switch to a different way to translate them: not pootle
but the mediawiki translate toolkit - from mediawiki (?)
+ lots of benefits.
+ but help is full of conditional help / snippets (Andras)
+ 500k words ...
* Move to using gettext natively (Caolan)
+ .src format not needed much longer
+ could move to .po files
+ use the boost / gettext impl' at run-time

+ scanbuild - vs. debugging version
+ can be used to find old style DBG_ASSERTs and
replace with 'asserts'
+ fixing validation issues pwrt. DOCX
+ necessary to un-block via Miklos' export fix:
+ fast sax writer should ideally has a
mechanism to mark a start & end, and sort
elements according to a pre-defined order.
+ crash fixes
+ running the crash-tester though asan should find a lot.
+ bite-sized distribution across tinder-boxen - student
+ Coverity - not really suitable for easy hacks (Caolan)
+ remaining, un-checked return codes / exception foo
+ UX tweaks
+ thoughts of collecting them on redmine
+ replace chunks of basegfx with glm
+ nicer co-ordinate / matrix stuff there
+ uses float not double, header based library
+ basic types / algorithms etc.
+ may cause some merging issues (Thorsten)
+ a feature ? (Moggi)
+ VCL all integer based, hence ratios etc. (Thorsten)
+ so no impact on basegfx.
+ performance / profiling bits
+ UNO constructors
+ still more to be done - helps size - 500x or so.

* UX update (Mirek)
+ starting to use RedMine instead of the design mailing list
+ using it to track issues that have an implementor

in this case.
+ what is RedMine ? (Tor)
+ like a project management thing; allows attachments etc.
+ nicer to work through than mailing lists
+ can follow using E-mail too
+ can watch the forum etc.
+ trialing it for a month
+ wait a week, any comments / concerns.
+ concerned wrt. double bug tracking (Bjoern)
+ please also update the see-also to cross-link.

+ making them easier to edit / design etc.
+ if we notice a missing icon, how do we ask ? (Caolan)

+ best to poke the forum (Mirek)
+ helps to ensure consistency: the same 'folder'

+ done with rectangles with id & layers
+ would like real HiDPI icons (Kendy)
