      screenshot 4.4 vs 5.0 -
        + found, commented in the bug (Kendy)
    + Icons to push into 5.0 if not already pushed (Jay)
        + seems not to be in libreoffice-5-0
            + cherry-picked that as
    + Limit to making changes to icons in 5.0 (Jay)
      Adolfo and Norbert have diffferent opinion on this
        + the problem is that the tango_testing icons shouldn't have been there in the first place 
        + change is in a theme that is not default on any platform (Kendy)
            + not affecting any documentation etc.
            + and are fixes - improves at least the fallback for now
            + Andreas woring on the real Sifr icons there - to be pushed later
        + in general - for large changes that affect very visible areas, they need to be synced 
with ESC / triple-reviewed
            + but for normal / small fixes, the usual rules apply (1 review is enough until the 
last RC)

    + Friday session this week
        + dialogs are next
        + 1:00pm CEST / 11:00 UTC
    + List of possible future topics
        + Steve wants the sidebar "configuration menu" icon gone: "it's useless confusing, thus 
user unfriendly,
          creates frustration and clutters the UI."

* Changing the gradient toolbars to single color on Mac (Jay)
        + hard to do it without a physical access to a mac :-( (Kendy)
        +,lXXO7sb,P9bGLkv (steve)
    + Office 2016 -
        + Microsoft doesnt use mac gradient in ribbon tabs (Jay)
    + can TDF provide a mac for a developer who'd work on this? (Steve)
        + temporarily eg.
        + i have an extra mac that devs can teamview into for building/testing
* Toolbar less prone to editing (Marek)
    + see
    + there is a "Lock toolbar position" (Jay)
        + would be enough to do that a default
    + please create a bugreport for that (Jay)
        + will do (Marek)
        + add to the catogory 'ux-advise'
    + dragging pieces of the toolbar should be platform-specific (Heiko)
        + no system definition for this though (Jay)
    + adding a specific 'lock' button or something would be confusing (Heiko)
* Insert deck or panel (Marek)
    + for inserting objects from the sidebar (Marek)
    + sidebar primarily for properties, not for insertion, that is supposed to be in the standard 
toolbar (Jay)
        + discussed at length in the HIG's (Jay)
* Quick access toolbar (marek)
    + Created by microsoft as they have tabs and a number of file buttons are hidden in the tabs 
    + if you want to try to prototype that, no problem with that from the code point of view (Kendy)
    + problem is that you'd be creating an own UI that would be platform-specific (Jay)
        + so it would be very limiting
        + not possible to share the code between eg. windows and Gtk3 (Kendy)
        + but of course, if you want to mock-up something, go for that (Jay)
* Easy hacks for Marek (Jay)
    + spell dialog auto-closing -
    + 'Go to Page' dialog -
