* Release Engineering update (Christian)
+ 4.4.5 - RC1
+ tagged, built, distributed to mirror network.
+ can be announced after the call.
+ 5.0.0 - RC3 status / branch
+ starting with translation export at 9pm
+ will be tagged / branched later today we have until midnight tonight.
+ heavy-duty tripple-review process for libreoffice-5-0-0 branch
+ Pending translations patch in gerrit (Eike)
+ would be great to apply after the update.
+ it affects only German.
+ Major bugs
+ Java not working without the old VS2010 MSVC runtime (Cloph on it)
[ not had a chance to fix it yet; Michael S pointed at magic
function that succeeds in the runtime for 32bit builds,
prolly needs more fixing in 64bit builds ].
+ presenter console - not visible on any platform (Cloph+Michael)
[ fixed now on Linux, Michael to have a look at Windows ]
+ PDF export Mac (Norbert)
[ fixed ]
+ KDE4 unusable mostly (JMux)
+ will push to gerrit for master today
+ reviewing easy stuff until midnight (Cloph)
+ couple of issues (Robinson)
+ need more info, but nothing super-pressing.
+ Late Feature Status (Michael)
+ LibreOfficeKit / Online tweaks (Kendy)
+ no changes.
+ OpenGL / double-buffer RenderContext (Kendy)
+ patches from Tomaz pending in gerrit
+ already reviewed (Miklos)
+ OpenGL by default not achievable for 5.0.0
+ propose re-visit @ ESC for 5.0.1 for some H/W on Windows.
+ gtk3+ (Caolan)
+ theming complete
+ patch in for gtk2 and gtk3 -> automatic accelerators, under control.
+ won't affect anything TDF ships fo + nothing else.
+ 5.0 splash / startcenter graphics / about dialog (Kendy?)
+ follow this bug:
+ about to push everything to master & push to 5.0
+ passed through the visual identity group - 10x reviews.
+ everything will be in the next RC3 ...
+ locked down modulo last minute feedback.
+ Android & iOS Remote
+ review still pending - due next week.
* UX Update (Kendy)
+ Template Contest
+ discussion wrt. seven submissions, 1/2 are quite good.
+ will provide feedback soon & perhaps iterate
+ HIG / discussed general sidebar approach
+ proposals to make sidebars fixed-width.
+ conclusion; still developing the usage there
+ sidebar -> more for properties; toolbars for functionality
+ at the moment not fully settled.
+ not so strict in the HIG just yet.
* Documentation (Olivier)
+ keeping help content up-to-date is a challenge
+ growing gap features <-> help docs.
+ time to come back & put it into the mainstream.
+ new features should have a minimum of documentation to bundle.
+ collecting a list of gaps that have been noticed
+ regularly adding new deps to a meta-bug here
+ need a reference to understand new calc functions, features etc.
+ writing XML files not fun at all.
+ a big need here; re-use extension to make writer a help authoring tool.
+ API of LibreOffice changed etc.
+ extension -> now in git / dev-tools
+ can upgrade it, and use it for writing help pages.
+ we have a lot of documentation in the help.
+ a tool that is quite old
+ want to check if we can use it to improve things,
or should we use a new technology.
+ best to improve existing thing for now.
+ would like help from developers.
+ help tool now runs (Kendy)
+ it doesn't run too well; type in words & save & re-load
+ new words are in bold; some XSLT there ...
+ either try to fix the XSLT, or re-write it in something
readable & debuggable.
+ Noel offered to try converting XSLT -> Java
+ tried it, but end result as horrible as XSLT (Noel)
+ Then could re-write in python.
+ not huge; 1300 lines export and 1900 for import.
+ big part is the tables.
+ might be easy to debug or re-write.
+ amazing we don't use ODF + RDF (Michael)
+ ideally use wikihelp (Kendy)
+ short term easier to fix this
+ looking for a python hacking hero who'd like to be mentored.
+ once the tool is fixed (Olivier)
+ no so bad, Basic + Python
+ the key is getting at least something in the flow of
new feature development.
+ eg. can't document OpenCL - don't understand tougher stuff.
+ recommend mentors - write-down a sheet on what they did
and what functionality they worked on.
+ once an XML file is generated from help
+ a small tool to render it without compiling the whole help would be nice.
+ could use the HTML / wiki export for this ? (Kendy)
* Crashtest update (Caolán)
+ 0 import, 1 export - cf. blog:
+ unchanged from blog, hope to look at 1 export assert.
hyperlinks, ruby-text tag intersection for this case.
* serf / neon & webdav bits (Giuseppe)
[ defer to next week ]
* GSoC (Cedric/Thorsten/Fridrich)
+ everything fine
+ all but 1x students passed (of 12) -> a good ratio
+ keep going :-)
* Hackfests (Bjoern)
+ contacted by Aarhus LibreOffice conference guys wrt.
+ 2nd day of conference
+ looking for a "topic": suggested "C++11 in LibreOffice"
+ advertising to local C++ groups ?
+ UI paper-cuts instead ? (Michael)
+ might need some talks / to prepare for that ? (Bjoern)
+ Hamburg, Germany: Oct 23rd -> 25th
+ would be great to see everyone there.
+ next venues / suggestions
+ Belgium another candidate ...
* l10n Update (Sophie)
+ request from the Slovenian team: enable emoji before RC5
"I can see that this feature won't be enabled before RC5 (=final 5.0
release). As some language teams have already translated that particular
new po file or major parts of it I see no reason why not to make this
feature work already in RC4 (even RC3?) so at least those l10n teams have a
week to test their translations of emojis."
+ code to merge translation has yet to be written (Andreas)
+ answered on l10n list:
+ we will have translations we can't check (Sophie)
+ originally Laszlo did English & Hungarian (Miklos)
+ chicken & egg issue - no tool to extract it to po & back.
+ then he did the po direction, but not the reverse
+ so - we have nothing bad for other langs - they just don't work (Michael)
+ punt all non-en-US / hungarian Emoji foo to 5.0.1
+ hope this doesn't happen next time - since translating master in parallel.
* Developer Certification (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy/Thorsten)
+ pending / shelved for now - wait 6 weeks.
* Commit Access (Miklos)
+ proposed: Mike Kaganski - has some 10-15 patches included
+ all but 1x fixing a non-trivial problem; couldn't push
to a private branch the other day.
=> go ahead.
* Jenkins update (Norbert)
+ missing & missed.
* Easy Hacks:
+ new easy-hacks thanks to:
+ <no new easy-hacks>
+ create your own by setting whiteboard to eg.
"easyHack difficultyBeginner skillCpp topicCleanup"
* Regression / Tendering Ideas (Michael)
AI: + mail people to ask wrt. ranking & consolidate for board (Michael)
* Security (Bjoern)
+ OpenSSL issues appear not to affect the version we ship.
+ would appreciate a double-check.
AI: + ping paranoid security guys (Michael)
* Mentoring lead (Bjoern)
+ someone technical & competent (Michael)
+ can we find someone to fill the role ?
+ perhaps good for a student / post-doc etc.
+ otherwise accepted; lets try it.
* QA (Robinson)
+ UNCONFIRMED at 402
+ needAdvice at 16
+ Most Pressing Bugs:
+ priority highest in the last week ...
+ tdf#89554 - EDITING: Dragging table to other page causes crash
+ Longstanding crash (Inherited from OOo)
+ we get a lot of crashes (Michael)
+ 43 open regression crashes -> more pressing
+ harder to reproduce in the past (Robinson)
+ tdf#92639 - Recent Files not shown in "Start Center" thumbnails and "File/Recent
+ Recent issue bisected - Stephan presumably looking at it.
+ tdf#92573 - Writer crash when attempting to open one file.
+ crash-testing bug-set is a static set (Caolan)
+ only when all cleared will we update it.
+ will update after 2x consecutive 0x0 reports.
+ pushing some more BZ changes over the next few days
+ testing today killing the MAB bits & merge today / tomorrow.
