* Completed Action Items:
+ give Mark Hung commit access & mail him (Norbert)
+ have a look at revert notification (author + committer + the person who reverted) (Norbert)
[ still not done. but, fyi. in 2015 so far there have been 150 reverts
79 of these were self-revert.
These involved 43 original author
and 21 'reverter'.
of the 71 that were not self-revert, 40 or so where revert involving core dev
on both side.. that should be talking to each other already.
That leave us with ~4 revert a month involving non core dev bein reverted.
Analyzing the data I also found a problem:
Author: Andras Timar <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Date: Sat May 23 14:26:27 2015 +0200
tdf#91429 do not convert ooxml preset shape modifier values
Revert "Resolves: #i124703# adapt coordinate range from ms relative..."
This reverts commit c764a3d978beb2e6197a8d3f7df53d81ebf72467.
The reverted commit did not fix anything in LibreOffice in the
first place. The document referenced in #i124703# is as good
without the patch as with it. But it caused a regression.
The original author of da0a44b415f630ce39617b8c8f0c366177a7705e
was Armin Le Grand, surely we do not want to send automated 'beware of revert' email in
that case :-)
So, all in all, I now think that it is not worth the aggravation, the extra load and the
risk of mishap.
And that we should stick to a social rule: notify the relevant parties when reverting.
=> please be polite when you revert & notify the person ]
+ 'make -k stagingcheck' prototype (Bjoern)
[ just like subsequent-tests, but for unstable tests, a holding-ground

+ turn it on and have a go; but lower prio. for black-listed bits.
</added later etc. ;->
+ Android & iOS Remote

* UX Update (Kendy)
+ Upstreaming elementary theme -- tdf#92458, lp#1483914 (Bjoern)
+ Xubuntu are using a home-grown theme.
shipped as a separate package; has its own repo.
like to push that into our repo & fold them in.
+ some filter-branch magic to get it moved around etc.
+ asked for MPLv2; if not (but not ideal) add a custom license file.
+ does anyone have objections to commit access for this specific
bit to maintainers ?
=> just give the right few guys accounts (Bjoern)

* Documentation (Olivier/Kendy)
+ move to flat ODT progress / filter issues ? (Michael)

* GSoC (Cedric)
+ Failure rate of students this year.
+ Initially 12 students
+ 1x failed at mid-term
+ Another failed at final.
+ Almost another fail at final.
+ Kendy on vacation last week
+ but reasonably ok with the outcome.
+ concerning - the last 2x troublesome ones:

+ Windows terrible last week. 50-60% broken.
+ translates to gerrit
+ some of them infra problems; lots of time while
+ painful to trigger a new build when infra fails (Michael)
+ use the 'rebase' button to do that (Norbert) - just push it.
+ new H/W is in-place, and more coming.
+ if people push something that breaks -> it breaks master.
AI: + advertise that verification is now much faster (Norbert)
+ was awesome overnight: (Michael)
+ the new build times should look like (Norbert)
+ 30-40mins for Windows
+ mac / linux 5-7 mins gerrit
+ some Mac builders up to 1:30 with bad cache
+ 2x other Linux machines coming soon.
+ see Norbert's forthcoming talk in Arhus for more ...
* Perf-testing update ? (Norbert)
+ now collecting make perfcheck result ... no graph yet
+ still some work needed to improve the web front-end
+ talk to Markus - wrt. how to do it.
+ do a unit-test & trigger a valgrind dump around a specific section.
+ can give nice narrow measurement - without drowning in cost of configmgr.
* new landing page website
+ intented to present in one page all the tdf online-resource related
to libreoffice development.
+ patch welcome. devcentral.git under gerrit.
* Easy Hacks:
+ new easy-hacks thanks to:

+ growing backlog ATM
+ needAdvice at 15
+ Most Pressing Bugs:

+ tdf#92478 - Scanning crashes on 64bit Windows 10 build
+ gentle nudge
+ tdf#93600 - Condition Formatting: Entering "=" in comparison value crashes program
+ fixed it & merged to -5-0 thanks to Bubli
