+ Bjoern, Stephan, Michael M, Robinson, Jan-Marek, Cloph, Eike, Andras,
Kendy, Miklos, Thorsten, Caolan, Adam, Jacobo, Norbert, David, Kohei,
* Completed Action Items:
+ come up with a proposal timing-wise (Cloph)
+ start building bibisect repositories (Robinson)
[ built will up-load shortly ]
+ get Robinson access to TDFs Sun-Ultra-24 etc. (Cloph)
+ see also: https://redmine.documentfoundation.org/issues/597#note-21
+ test system to get BSA fixed (Cloph)
[ setup with a proxy to the testing instance of bugzilla,
need to work out why xml-rpc login fails ]
+ merge calc / sidebar stripe enablement to 4.4 for now (Kendy)
* Pending Action Items:
+ fix BSA login / XML-RPC issues (Cloph)
+ reach out to Tollef to organise bz migration date/time (Robinson)
+ get stats on bugzilla load / HW strength from Tollef (Robinson)
[ talking to him after the call today ]
+ check Matus' startup performance measurement for layered images.zip (Kendy)
+ poke wrt. FOSDEM / BetaCoworking - ask him (Kendy)
[ Cor poked, seems they're happy to have us for 2x days ]
* Bugzilla migration update (Robinson)
+ going well
+ please test out your tools vs. that.
+ talk to Tollef today to get a date.
* Release Engineering update (Cloph)
+ 4.2.8 release
+ RC2 tagged & currently still building on Windows
+ once done tonight - will start building 4.4.0 Beta2
+ 4.3.5 RC2
+ due to be tagged next week
+ 4.4.0 Beta 2
+ plan to tag late-evening.
+ Lateish Feature collection:
+ OpenGL rendering for Windows by default for good drivers (various)
+ Blacklisting for Linux and Windows (Markus)
[ now done / in 4.4 Beta 2 - list needs evolution ...
most devices currently black-listed vs. Mozilla black-list
a few white-listed.
export SAL_FORCEGL=1 to skip the black-list ]
+ OpenGL/CL JPEG de-compression to texture (jpeg-turbo patch)
[ patch pending here ].
+ OneDrive bits [ urk ]
+ in the features / wiki page but ...
+ no point merging the feature, until matching libcmis release (Miklos)
+ is there a story here ? can we get a libcmis release ? (Michael)
AI: + ask Cedric what is up (Miklos)
+ any objections to get it in for RC1 ?
+ PDF signing - non-experimental (Kendy)
+ small patch to enable it in 4.4
+ can always re-disable it if not working before release.
+ so far Linux & OS/X work -> Windows in progress.
+ any objections to enabling for RC1 ?
+ Android / iOS Remote
* Crashtest update (Markus)
+ expecting new hardware before Christmas.
+ Michael S fixed a problem with the ODF validator
+ found a bug - reporting errors with extension elements
containing character content; now fixed.
+ new export asserts around duplicated attributes
+ ODS export ~200 assert issues around style export:
+ generating invalid files
+ otherwise the numbers look quite stable
+ a few more import crashers - related to duplicated attributes,
+ some filters to internal conversions to ODF:
+ export of OLE objects on import eg.
* Large scale renames (Kendy)
+ any concerns wrt. s/Crsr/Cursor/ , s/Frm/Frame/ , s/Fmt/Format/ and similar?
+ of course with the care it needs - some include files have that in the name etc.
+ XML attributes with 'Frm' in them
+ git grep 'Crsr' | wc -l gives 5808
+ Frm: 26837
+ Fmt: 24992
+ suggest postpone 'Frm' (Bjoern)
+ fears of 10x -> 20x frame concepts
+ not worried wrt. cursor / format
+ we already have 'Frame' and 'Frm' everyone likes to call things 'Frame'
+ in sw:: namespace already have a 'Frame' class for binary DOC import/export (Miklos)
+ rtl:: namespace cleanup for strings - was done during the .3 release (Miklos)
+ less pain for cherry-picking ...
+ Another thing to queue for x.y.3 release is Window::Paint (Michael)
+ adding an OutputDevice reference
+ another data-point on fmt/frm - got quite confused (Sberg)
+ lots of permutations SwFmtFrm and SwFmtFlyFrm etc.
+ concerns trying to follow stack frames
+ if cleanup there; perhaps some improved naming too.
+ would support better names for Writer (Bjorn)
+ can re-write classes with Clang ? (Michael)
+ need to update documentation too (Miklos)
+ got complaints of 'm' prefix member changes
+ bigger changes need to update the huge OO wiki pages too.
+ potentially should clone those pages ? (Michael)
+ old naming in images too (JMux)

* UX Update (Kendy)
+ ruler in Writer turned off by default, shortcut to toggle will be provided
+ better default workspace color
+ lighter on windows -> looks better
+ Breeze icon theme going nicely (4.5 only)
+ have writer that can open with (KDE5) Breeze icons
+ needs the image layering
+ some bundled templates needed - will run a competition
+ template button on the start screen
+ much more accessible; when you hit the button: no templates
+ run a quick competition: to get 2-3 good looking templates
+ what's the story on translation ? (Michael)
+ hope to not have much text in there (Kendy)
* Certification (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy)
+ page updated.
* Jenkins update (Norbert)
+ issues with tests hanging all of windows yesterday
+ crash in VCL, after which a hang & not finish; not sure why.
+ in theory a timeout / watchdog in jenkins
+ fixed a hang-bug with the XML parser (Kohei)
+ just fixed - could that be it ?
+ some vcl virtualdevice thing aborting (Norbert)
+ not much progress this week
* bug mail to dev-list bikeshed (Stephan, Bjoern)
+ noticed the dev-list was full of bug mail yesterday (Stephan)
+ mostly EasyHacks being subscribed to the list
+ not sure we need it, but what is the consensus
+ last consensus was that EasyHacks & MABs -> Dev list (Bjoern)
+ volume is rather high.
+ prefer to have less of them;
would prefer to have a daily digest:
+ see also: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=66154
+ MAB mails - are mostly content-less
+ just say: MAB <n> FIXED or MAB <n> was marked blocking
on another bug.
+ scripting some real content into that would be awesome.
+ can mouse-over the links in the bug-tracker & see the subject (Michael S)
+ would be cooler to have the mythical portal (Sberg)
* QA (Robinson)
+ UNCONFIRMED stable at 633
+ quiet as testing out 4.4
+ one issue in the meeting; how to deal with bugs
resolved 'WORKSFORME' vs. master
+ users can be frustrated by that outcome
+ if we don't know what commit fixed it - hard to identify the
developer to commit & back-port it.
+ can you bibisect ? (Miklos)
+ would devs be interested then ? (Robinson)
+ depends on the commit - perhaps too big (Michael)
+ of course, if it's a small win & easy case anyone
can push to gerrit for back-porting (Kendy)
+ good to tell the developer involved too.
