    + look into writing DSO dependency check script (Stephan)
        [ https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/19909/
          started something; what it does is check the libraries
          and executables; does anything contain a '/' ie. full-path
          doesnt' check for white or black-list of known good &
          bad libs yet.
             + example was of case where we bibisect repos depended on
               an unexpected system library.

* Release Engineering update (Cloph)
    + 4.4.6 / 5.0.3 retrospective
        + released as final
        + update check a bit later than usual.
            + bug on Win-XP, check for updates doesn't create a dialog
              https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=95183
    + 4.4.7
        + RC1 tagged and pushed to mirrors; announce to public later.

        + Robinson to take care of branching & tagging.
    + 5.0.4 status
        + RC1 / freeze week 48, 2x weeks out.

        + will create a new Android Viewer later this week.
 
* Documentation (Miklos / Olivier)
    + Kendy released a new ver. of the help editing extension.
       + a number of new fixes.
    + cleaner contents of the generated help.
 
* UX Update (Bubli)
    + design meeting didn't happen yesterday
       + looking for a new / suitable time.
       + not found one that fits everyone.
    + continuing Tor's work on Impress transitions
       + tooltips as well as legends needed for translators.
 
* Further renaming in sw (Kendy/Miklos)
    + Kendy would again update the script so that Cloph can run it before the branch-off
    + new improvements to fix:
        + Sw*Frm -> Sw*Frame, Crsr -> Cursor
           -- now that sw::Frame is gone (specific to binary word filter)
    + script lives in: bin/rename-sw-abbreviations.sh
    + concern wrt. testing before commit (Norbert)
        + can test the script in advance (Miklos)
        + use more precise Clang plugins ? (Bjoern)
           + nail the comments too (Miklos)
AI: + run the script just before branch-off (Robinson)
 
* Crashtest update
    + 0 import failures, 0 export failures, 333 coverity issues
        + downward trend on new coverity results
        + mostly qa/ Java code (Norbert)
           + not delivered code, less critical.
    + asan+ubsan crashtest run, deferred.
 
* SolarMutex checks in writer for UNO API (Bjoern)
    + quick note; added some SolarMutex checks in
      SwClient/SwModify.
        + if anything ever touches them without that mutex -> broken.
    + found a few from subsequent-check
        + added 10x new SolarMutex bits; may not be the whole story.
    + if you find an assertion in stack-trace in dbgutil - should be easy to fix.
    + anyone doing OOP writer / UNO API, encouraged to run vs. dbgutil master
        + eg. Wollmux vs. a debug build would be interesting.
    + Grammar-checker, runs in a separate thread
        + errors.ubuntu.com - sometimes knocks itself out; locking ?
 
* Hackfests (Bjoern)
    + GNOME hack-fest in Madrid - Dec 2nd -> 4th (Jacobo)
          + sent an invitation to LibreOffice deployments in Spain
              + they may need funding to attend.
          + Wiki page pending - Bjoern working on it.
    + FOSDEM / Beta Co-working (Bjoern)
    + LiMux hackfest end of November (Jan-Marek)
          + Fri 20th - Sun 22nd November 2015
          + official page https://wiki.debian.org/BSP/2015/11/Munich
            to replace the doodle
    + next venues / suggestions
        + considering another Gran Canaria hack-fest (Thorsten)
            + March next year (?)
 
* Mentoring Update (JanI)
    + helping newcomers getting build going
    + what's the right gerrit workflow ?
        + will re-write the wiki page to 1 not 3
    + two others approached in private, now creating patches
        + Android & Java bits.
    + cleaning wiki pages.
    + some Java & C++ patches himself.
    + issue with cppunit hanging:
        + solenv/gbuild/CppUnit
        + visual-studio confused wrt. a unit-test file.
    + next week:
        + bugzilla & gerrit - questing for new devs.
 
* migrating Java subsequenttest to Python (Bjoern/Michael S)
    + open patches in gerrit
        + re-writing old java tests in python.
    + concern wrt. tests for locking issues in Java (Michael S)
    + concern wrt. duplicating tests (Miklos)
        + have either the java or the python version - not both.
    + why python not java ? (Michael M)
        + move to C++ ?
        + the python code is in-process (Bjoern)
            + usually much easier to debug.
    + check-bookmarks is special (Michael S)
        + 10k bookmarks, stress the solar-mutex etc.
    => don't migrate check-bookmarks, all other Java tests are
       fair game and ensure we remove old java versions of
       tests migrated to python.
        + encouraging to see tests being migrated.
 
* l10n Update (Sophie)
    + Cloph updated the template vs. master, translation ongoing.
        + no issues.
 
* Developer Certification (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy/Thorsten)
    + pending another 5 weeks.
 
* Why do we have 2x svg import filters ? (Caolan)
    + perhaps Armin has some input.
    + 2 for different purposes.
        A - as an image (insert->picture)
            + gives the best rendering.
        B - where we import as our file format (file->open)
    + not quite as simple as expected.
        hope to one day be a super-set of SVG (perhaps).
 
* Jenkins / CI update (Norbert)

        + fairly bad windows week
        + next week -> prolly red, this weeks' windows problems.
        + why more suceeded dbg builds, vs. rel builds ? (Michael)
             + perhaps box busy doing something else at a bad time (Norbert)
        + linux dbg builds broken: SolarMutex bits (Bjoern)
    + steady state of goodness.
