* Present: Heiko, Ibrahim, Jay, Mattias, Kendy, Stuart
* Completed Action Items:

    + Heiko: Publish it in the Shapes sidebar blog post
    + Matthias: Provide a mockup of a single accordion collection of shapes

* Pending Action Items:

    + Jay: Send a mail to with the wiki page that collects 
changes in menus
    + Kendy: Collecting of the user information should be incremental, somewhere in the user's 
    + Ahmed: Push the new Sifr icons he's done recently
    + Kendy: Talk to Milos wrt.
    + Alex: Gnome 2.20-style 'a' icons & Gnome 3-style text line icons
    + Samuel: Formulas and Navigator should open in the sidebar, not as a special window
        + Is that issue for the Navigator too (I dont read it from the issue)
          and in Writer the choice anycase was to allow opening separate too. (Cor, after 
discussion on 20150128)
            + the bug report only discusses the separate formulas sidebar in calc (Jay)
    + Kendy:
         + check how the sliders in the Audio/Video toolbar are implemented to move them to sidebar
    + Jay: Create a bug report about problem with parent icon set links.txt entries not appearing 
in child icon sets (Jay)
    + Kendy: Make sifr icons fall back on breeze icons as breeze is more complete

* UI changes integrated the last week:

    + More reorganization of buttons in the Calc toolbars (Jay)
    + More Breeze icons (Andreas)
    + .ui improvements (Bubli)

* Accordion widget (Heiko)
    + positivive feedback to possible use of the accordion widget
    + it is quite a change if we introduce that in LibreOffice (Kendy)
        + development of the widget itself
        + native theming - Gtk+ / OS X / Qt / Windows - are there native impl's? (Kendy)
        + is there something close that would provide similar functionality in LibreOffice? (Kendy)
            + like a modified tree view? (Kendy)
                + different that you can open any level (Heiko)
                + powerful, but not that easy to use
            + actually it seems that eg. Calligra uses a modified tree view (Heiko)
        + disadvantage of accordion: uses quite a lot of space (Heiko)
    + would be good to have a graphical designer to think about this - just to have something nice 
& creative (Heiko)
        + even accordion would be a big change - so we can experiment (Kendy)
AI  + create a CoreHack to modify the tree view to have a Proof-of-concept, so that we can try how 
it feels (Kendy)
    + interesting use case for trying the accordion could be the Tools -> Options... dialog 

* Icon Updates / Issues

    + Shouldn't the icons in the Start Center always be the TDF/LibreOffice official icons 
regardless of the icon theme? (Pedro)
        + KDE HIG forbid to change the official icons (Heiko)
            + like, when you have the LibreOffice official icon / logo, it shouldn't be branded
        + are the Writer / Calc / ... icons actually logos? (Kendy)
AI      + best to agree with Marketing - if the app icons should have the status of logos (Kendy)
    + Tango
        + Latest status of updates available here (Jay)
        + pushed new icons for Calc (Jay)

    + Sifr
        + Latest status of updates available here (Jay)
    + Breeze (Andreas/Jay)
        + Latest status of updates available here (Jay)

    + Extra-Large (32x32) Icons for large resolutions
        + Status -
* Presentation templates for the LibreOffice conference 2015 (K-J)
    + great work by Klaus-Juergen, thanks so much! (all)
        + unfortunately no other participants
        + we should have promoted that more, via G+ - sorry about that (Kendy)
    + all look good - up to marketing if it is necessary to have one official, or if the people can 
choose from more (Kendy)
* Artwork competition for LibreOffice 5.0 (Kendy)
    + needed: splash, startcenter graphics, about
    + not to take results as is, could be used as an inspiration (Kendy)
    + competition - a possibility to reach out to people, to get fresh blood (Jay)
    + hesitant if we get enough useful contribution (Stuart)
        + still I'd like to try it :-) (Kendy)
        + use similar wording as in the templates contest (Kendy)
    + we can also reach to some people we know (Jay)
        + will do that (Jay)
        + and if no positive answers / good outcome, competition the next week (Kendy)
