* Hackfests
    + Toulouse Hackfest [ This Weekend ! ] (Arnaud)
        + Confirmed for Nov. 15-16th
        + more details: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Hackfest/Toulouse2014
        + budget reserved (Eur 2k) - poke Bjoern.
    + Munich hack-fest [ Next Weekend ! ] (Jan-Marek):
        http://www.it-muenchen-blog.de/2014/07/bug-squashing-party-2014/
        + jmux (IRC) can add you if you don't want to create an account
        + will have a BSP come-together; if someone says they're coming
          just show up etc.
           + November 21st-23rd, 2014
             https://wiki.debian.org/BSP/2014/11/de/Munich
        + 35 or so registrations - looking fun.
    + Need further offers [!] ... (Bjoern)
        + propose Collabora / Cambridge (Michael)
        + should consider Las Palmas de Gran Canaria/University again (Bjoern)
        + Freiburg - also an option (prolly better in summer anyway (Bjoern)
 
* FOSDEM bits
    + https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM15
         + 20 minute slots (good to collect talks)
    + please consider filing by mid. December !
    + Volunteer needed to book / run the hackfest afterwards.
 
* library bloat (Michael S)
    + not really an issue for release builds - --enable-mergelibs
        + big library + --enable-symbols -> OOM
    + especially problematic CppuniTests with use_library_objects
    + perhaps a barrier to entry to new developers
    + Calc: (with debuginfo) 4.1 - 413Mb, 4.3 - 512Mb, master - 600Mb
            (stripped)                    4.3 - 26.8Mb master - 30Mb
        + linking in parallel gives OOM issues.
        => avoid making libraries even bigger.
        + new calc engine uses lots of templates (Markus)
            + mdds usage is restricted to only a few modules: (Kohei)
                + 5-6 translation units only.
        + whole code-base is using lots more templates (Markus)
            + compilation speed also got more than 2x slower (Kohei)
                + use of own templates & container -> STL
        + recently turned a lot of methods to inline methods left/right (Kohei)
    + some data needed: how many people show up at hackfest with <= 8GB ram to build? 
       + ask people at hackfest.
    + include what you use patch from Riccardo (Michael)
       + the real sol'n to compile time is not including so much.
 
* UX Update (Kendy)
    + lots of controversy sorted out, minutes posted
    + lots of nice UX related patches went in
        + Caolan's "delete in masterpages"
        + drop-downs for insert-bullet / numbering
    + default to Sifr on Mac/OS [ should be in late-features ]
        + reminder: UI-Freeze: week 51/Dec 15
    + Heiko from user-prompt should publish surveys
    + 2x new people joined yesterday: Ahmed & Stuart
 
* Certification (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy)
    + page updated.
 
* Bugzilla migration update (Robinson)
    + data in a test VM, VM getting migrated today
    + anyone interested in becoming an admin / helping out
        + please ping Robinson, starting to hand out accounts
          on the test VM.
    + also salt-stack work planned this week.
    + migration plan depends on release dates: early January ?
        + co-ordinating date/time with Tollef
        + offered to shut-down fdo to get a nice clean snapshot.
        + kindly offered to have a re-direct for old bugs
    + backup, X, cleanup with scripts, backup of that, we re-load that.
        + X: projects read-only for LibreOffice
 
* Jenkins update (Norbert)
    + gathering enough machines to do all 3x platforms
        + Aquinetic for Linux next week
        + Bytemark for Windows
    + go in & select which platforms, and a git ref, and it builds
        + allows testing feature branches too.
    + Jenkins on our infra needs migrating to new infra.
        + will start to make it run directly from our infra.
        + login/pwd usual suspects.
    + incompatible autogen changes
        + problems wrt. 1.0 vs. 0.10 - gstreamer change
        + no config file we can put up that works across 2x months
        + could we add these to distro-configs/ ? (Michael)
        + how much solved by removing fatal option checking ? (Michael S)
             + might work; some --best-effort option (Norbert)
             + once they're changed, we get several days of issues
             + introduced with good intentions but ... (Michael S)
AI:          + tweak autogen.sh to not add that parameter (Michael M)
    + going to nine boxes, will need more machines
        + plenty of TDF owned machines out there; some at-home
        + creating a mode whereby you can disable jenkins if you need
        + will need an external ssh in from outside to manage jenkins.
 
* A Coruña University student project update (Jacobo)
    + thank you for your ideas :) reviewed GSOC ideas & ML contents.
    + propose one project, and I will act as a mentor.
    + learn from the experience to maybe run more projects later
    + The chosen project will consist on revamping the gallery tool
      as described it GSOC page [1]. Feature-development ideas are the
      ones that better fit the goals of these end-of-degree projects
      as defined by the University.
    + Currently the students are applying for the projects they prefer.
      Once it's assigned to someone, work will start in January/February 
      and ideally finish in June.

* QA (Robinson)
    + UNCONFIRMED bug count down to 764
        + big thanks to all our triagers !
    + Bibisect for 4.4
        + Alpha1 bibisect repository is built locally (and now available)
          https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Bibisect#Versions
          mirrored on dev-downloads: http://dev-downloads.libreoffice.org/bibisect/linux/
        + Baseline for 4.4: Ubuntu 14.04 (any reason to change?)
    + Input on an older bug:
       "Startup failure: XDM authorization key matches an existing client"
       https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=76742
        + obscure, XDM specific, waay off the beaten path; unusual.
