+ smaller amount of space available this year (Jan-Marek)
+ maybe some general community event around that? (Bjoern)
+ it is a general event, not LO specific (Jan-Marek)
* Bugzilla spam on libreoffice-dev (Bjoern)
+ Bugzilla mails are still horribly uninformative
+ We added libreoffice-dev to CC for EasyHacks so that we dont miss some newcomers shy questions
+ this might be obsolete now that there is JanIV
- Very sorry for the mass mail this morning, Bugzilla out-trixed me (thought it would not
send the mails) (janIV)
+ suggestion: remove libreoffice-dev for EasyHacks for now, ask Jan to look for those questions
- OK with janIV. Robinson might be better to remove the CC (without sending emails) (janIV)
+ some script detecting real newbie comments ONLY would be awesome of course ... (possible
- I now regulary look at new easyHacks, to check they are real easyHacks (janIV)
=> drop CC of dev-list on easy-hacks (JanI)
=> JanI CC'd on all easy-hacks (JanI)
=> report / link new easy-hacks each week (JanI)
+ needs some degree of policing too (Michael)
+ non-well-formed easy-hacks:
+ Ahmet Can, Nemzag -> concern; review these ?
+ Easy Hack tag is for more experienced developers
AI: + build it into dev-tools/scripts/esc-bug-stats.pl (JanI)
+ Transfer reporter -> CC for re-filed easy-hacks (JanI)
+ transient bug book-keeping appreciated out of BZ (Michael)
* Mentoring Update (JanI)
+ wiki merged step-by-step with getInvolved
+ some good feedback.
+ Wiki prepared code convention page for discussion, now added an empty page, so we can decide
what we want
+ like guidelines for new devs.
+ used to point to old OOo guidelines
=> old OOo guidelines (Bjoern)
+ wrote them - what was seen, not what is best.
+ not something official etc.
+ "what is the little letter in front of vars" (JanIV)
+ wiki new easyhack pages (one pr skill)

+ reviewed set of skills.
+ EasyHack, prepared for review (multi comment, still active, assigned etc)
+ Gerrit patches: 68 open from non-committers all commented. 134 open in total.
+ How to handle cherry-pick for other branches (abandon or ?)

"it was merged in another branch"
