+ presenter console - not rendering on Windows (Michael)
[ incredible code really odd ... still chasing it ]
+ KDE4 usability (JMux)
+ 2x patches submitted for master & 5.0.0
+ all merged, no worse than previous releases.
+ lhm tinderboxes already building with KDE4 to track that.
+ nothing super-pressing (Robinson)
+ some things turned out to be more minor than user prio.
+ Late Feature Status (Michael)
+ LibreOfficeKit / Online tweaks (Kendy)
+ no changes -> mostly changes going into master anyway.
+ OpenGL / double-buffer RenderContext (Kendy)

* UX Update (Kendy)
+ kendy on vacation.
* Documentation (Olivier)
+ no-one here.
* Crashtest update (Caolán)
+ crash-test stable
+ single docx export assert still
+ 1x import issue that comes & goes intermittently.
+ started fuzzing recently.
+ going well; with a scheme for fast iteration
+ canary issue (Norbert)
+ good to have 1x to see it's doing something.
+ tooling tells you of suspicious repeate execution (Caolan)
+ update of bug docs pending.
+ running out of space on VM136 -> within 10Gb of full on a run.
+ We have 12G of test docs. My up-to-date archive is 44G
+ Current 12G turns into +86G on run, so +616G, err I need an additional 660G
+ disk is 300G in size, so no amount of cleanup matters I guess
+ working on wrapping crash-testing into Jenkins (Norbert)
+ buried in the pile, needs to cleanup scripts & move them around
to rationalize them; which will increase VM size.
+ no space available on the fast RAID system, only on regular (Cloph)
+ just an additional virtual-disk can be hooked up as
another partition. (regular space is plenty, more than 2TB available)
+ VDB1 - fairly tight (Cloph)

+ pushed the patch to gerrit last night
+ testing is hard.
+ reviewers appreciated.
+ nice to split patches;
+ into 2x -> 1x for UCB and then for framework
* UNO / stack / member allocated objects (Noel/Stephan)
+ current status - last patch addressed Stephan's comments
+ appears to trigger a basic ref-counting issue.
+ can we elide the basic bit for now ? (Michael)
+ which places does it address ? (Stephan)
+ either on-the stack or in-line in another class (Noel)
+ the cases - fine to detect & complain (Stephan)
+ deliberately creating stack objects for perf. problematic
+ best not to use an UNO interace there (Michael)
* GSoC (Cedric)
+ Next important dates:
+ Aug. 21: pencil down & start of evaluations
+ Aug. 28: final evaluations deadline
+ need to decide Mentor Summit attendees:

+ Fridrich - not available.
+ happy if someone else goes instead (Thorsten)
+ failing that - want to go.
+ poke Thorsten if you have a burning desire =)
+ students -> LibreOffice Conference ? (Stephan)
+ should all tell our students wrt. conferences.
+ ask them to go now, TDF can guarentee them travel.
+ book early, cap at Eur 1500 for re-imbursement.
+ Google had a special budget for this too (apply to Carol)
+ expected $500 instead.
AI: + chase Google / student travel budget (Thorsten)
+ GSOC panel filed (Cedric)
+ each student has a mini-presentation slot there.

+ would be great to see everyone there.
+ next venues / suggestions
+ Belgium another candidate ...
* l10n Update (Sophie)
+ Emojis (Michael)
+ last time we decided not to risk only 1x (or 2x) RCs with
+ Laszlo didn't get the memo hence:
AI: + suggest poll translators for their language & enable for just those (Sophie)
+ created a merged translation, not ideal (Cloph)
AI: + send the script to do the work to Cloph (Laszlo)
* Developer Certification (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy/Thorsten)
+ pending / shelved for now - wait 5 weeks.
* Jenkins update (Norbert)

Two new boxes:
+ new windows box online, donated by Bytemark : tb68-bytemark (16 cores, dual socket, intel
+ new Mac box online, acquired by TDF : tb69 (MacPro 12 core)
+ lots of B/W for mac builds.
+ dedicated windows boxes for hosting in Germany coming
+ currently using a big EC2/Amazon instance for Win builds.
+ hope to replace that with 2x big Linux.
+ we have the paperwork done to actually order the windows box.
+ ie. will have doubled capacity vs. what we had last week.
+ takes another 2x weeks or so.
