    + branching of translations ?
        + since 5.1 - there are lots of new pages in the help
          that need translation
        + is 5.1 stable in terms of translation ?
            + new pages arrive in master.
        + already branched translations (Cloph)
            + bug in rc2 tag that made people think there was an issue.
            => why we had RC3 - there is no issue, move along.

AI:   + poke an admin if you didn't get the memo (All)
         resent mail to Bjoern and Michael (janI)
 
* UX Update (Kendy)
    + statistics being built from the draw survey by Heiko
    + last meeting - finalized the sidebar survey

        + where do surveys show up ? (Michael)
            + on the planet ?
        + design blog should be subscribed & shows up (Kendy)
            + 
https://design.blog.documentfoundation.org/2016/02/26/what-do-you-expect-from-the-sidebar-in-libreoffice/
    + budget requests from design & docs team
    + lots of GSOC talk.
        + interest there, but need mentors.
 
* Crashtest update (Caolan)
    + 6 import failures, 0 export failures, 31 coverity
    + new coverity numbers expected by tomorrow
        + expected to shrink.
    + coverity - expected to halve, removed lots of Java bits.
 
* drop gstreamer 0.10/bump baseline (tdf#94508) (Bjoern)
    + are there parallel installable packages for 1.0 for CentOS6 ? (Michael)
    + don't know if we have packages (Caolan)
AI: + attempt to re-build a recent 1.0 / core spec file on CentOS6 (Cloph)
        + if that fails, abandon it; use a distro package ?
 
* development budget, late addition: "kill scp2" tender (Bjoern)
    + proposal to tender to kill scp2.
    + has lots of windows installer logic included
    + 15k under-maintained LOC
    + problems caused like GL file-list missing
    + do-able from releng, or tender it ?
    + is it split-able into easy-hacks ? (Kendy)
        + already have auto-install one (Bjoern)
        https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=90753
        + are there somewhat mechanical steps ? (Kendy)
            + converted 50 files - and happy !
        + some - like auto-install; can be done in gbuild tdf#90753 (Bjoern)
            + some dark awfulness for Windows.
    + functionality around registry entries,
      custom actions etc. (Timar)
    + goal to kill make_installer.pl msidb ? (Michael)
        + goal to kill make_installer for Linux at least (Bjoern)
        + technical level happy (Norbert)
            + not so happy with the tender.
    + not broken just now - why break it (Stephan)
        + concerns wrt. lack of pressing urgent need.
    => make a clearer proposal.
 
* Windows / fonts (Michael)
    + please read my mail; freetype / harfbuzz everywhere ?
        + seems sensible (Michael S)
            + concerned wrt. resources to maintain 5x different
              platform rendering backends.
        + users expect stability across platforms (Miklos)
        + any insight into up-stream / harfbuzz development (Thorsten)
            + do we become the maintainer ?
            + background: Chromium already gone to harfbuzz everywhere (Caolan)
                + perhaps less of a layout concern.
            + thought about it in the past
                + ways from Adobe to add weird fonts.
                + pros can be unhappy.
            + OpenType helps & 
            + concerned if it is a good idea.
        + not just Chromium using Harfbuzz on Win+Mac - also Mozilla (Michael S)
            + maintainer employed by Google, working full-time.
            + harfbuzz - has configuration mode; will not render fonts
              by itself, but can use uniscribe on Windows
                  + but encapsulates that with HarfBuzz API.
                  https://cgit.freedesktop.org/harfbuzz/tree/src/hb-shaper-list.hh
                  https://cgit.freedesktop.org/harfbuzz/tree/src/hb-uniscribe.cc
            + happy if that's reasonably serious (Thorsten)
        + damned if you do, or don't (Norbert)
    + love a free-software font rendering stack we can fix (Michael)
        + will need, for Windows - to use whatever weird Adobe fonts (Thorsten)
            + people feel strongly about their weird fonts.
 
* Hackfests (Bjoern)
    + next venues / suggestions
        + Ankara, Turkey
            + https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Hackfest/Ankara2016
            + talked to them; lots of enthusiasm & desire for training.
                + suggested date: 2016-04-30
            + hope to go & do an overview talk first (Michael)
            + DavidO hoping to go
        + Gran Canaria hack-fest (Thorsten)
            + April 6-8th (7-9th) possibly
                + Plan is to craft it according to the Japanese
                  Mini-Conference, with a broader local community appeal
                https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Events/LibreOffice_Espania_Summit
            + announced on Spanish list (janI)
        + Germany, Munich, LiMux; End of May 2016 (Jan-Marek)
            + Orga: https://wiki.debian.org/BSP/2016/05/de/Munich
            + Weekend doodle: https://dudle.inf.tu-dresden.de/LiMux_Hackfest_May_2016/
                + 19-21 or 27-29
                + closes next Mon -> select weekend.
 
* Mentoring Update (JanI)
     + gerrit: 160 open patches of which 107 can be merged if no open comments
                76 from contributors of which 44 can be merged if no open comments 
     + GSoC commits, please give a hand to get patches merged, so we can evaluate students
         + need to have a good review to evaluate them.
     + added needsDevEval (easyHacks) to ESC report
            + 399 needs evaluation (and code pointers) please give a hand
            + lots can be converted to easy-hacks, but needs code-pointers.
     + Gerrit monthly abandon patches (only 1, so the regular work starts to pay off)
     + started working on a tool to update easyhacks with many bz comments
     + added as infra-tdf admin
     + EasyHack https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=91794
         + Discuss of when to use #if 0, and to use/not use #ifdef <module>_DEBUG
             + lack of consensus here.
         + rationale so far (Bjoern)
             + we have two somewhat tinderboxed/CIed debug levels:
                 + compatible build
                      (--enable-debug/--enable-selective-debuginfo/"make sfx.clean && make debug=t 
sfx2")
                      => must be compatible with rest of the build being non-debug
                 + incompatible build (--enable-dbgutil)
                      => must be compatible with rest of the build being dbgutil
             + IMHO it doesnt make sense to have more than these two debug levels (would bitrot 
anyway):
                 => move all code in one of those or kill it
             + some code v. expensive / specifix (Norbert)
                 + sympathetic to having it around.
                 + dislike #if OSL_DEBUG_LEVEL > 1 etc. (Bjoern)
             + there are valid use cases for _DEBUG code (Eike/[Moggi])
                 + see for example DEBUG_MATRIX in calc
                 + code for debugging complex data structures
                 + impossible to debug some parts of the code without such code
                     + impossible to write that code each time you need to debug it
             + agree with removing several debug levels (Eike)
                 + but leave DEBUG_FOO macros
                 + doing it blindly a problem; needs some insight & review.
             + could handle macros similarly for config feature-tests (Stephan)
                 + where we define them as all as zero
                 + and everywhere #if DEBUG_FOO etc. so we don't get
                   new ones of these
                 + could change them all to 1 to avoid bit-rot
                 + good to document them centrally.
                 + concern wrt. ripple include (Michael)
          + we have around 15 pending (JanI)
              + concerned wrt. actions on review feedback.
          + wine has some complex debug env. var (JMux)
              + could be used to turn off expensive stuff (Stephan)
AI:       => switch easy-hack to turn: OSL_DEBUG_LEVEL > 1 to OSL_DEBUG_LEVEL > 0 (Bjoern)
 
* l10n Update (Sophie)
    + nothing apart from glad to fix rc2.
    + genlang was introduced recently - what is it ? (Kendy)
        + an old project, brought in, currently runs as it used to run (JanI)
        + reading the code extracting & merging l10n
        + it replaces ulfex etc. into a C++ hierarchy using
          lex to describe things so it is maintainable.
        + 1st ver -> don't change the po files.
            + goal is to generate the same po files as now.
    + including Online translations to pootle ? (Andras)
        + will do it once we have updated the project (Sophie, Cloph)
            + want the 5.1 project setup first.
 
* Commit Access
 
* Developer Certification (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy/Thorsten)
    + pending next cycle.
 
* Jenkins / CI update (Norbert)
