* Mentoring Update (JanI)
    + gerrit: 182 open patches of which 117 can be merged if no open comments
           97 from contributors of which 59 can be merged if no open comments
    + GSoC wiki update, with official dates (and ours), mentors please have a look
    + GSoC mail help, interest seems high and positive
        + spend lots of time helping them.
    + Updated remaining bugs id < 40000 unconfirmed.
    + Update esc-mentoring tool twice (due to gerrit updates)
    + bz tools added (to update comments)
    + some attention needed with OSL_ENSURE to assert() replacements:
      might make the dbgutil build halt hard a lot more (Bjoern)
    + did halt hard in the 2 tests I made, I am communicating with the contributor (janI)
 
* embedded database / firebird mess (Lionel/David O)
    + inconclusive on mailing list
    + options:
        + declare FB only supported on platforms, where it can be
          built with current compiler toolchain that is used and
          decided by this project. 
        + cancel MSVC 14.0 upgrade for now and wait until it's
          supported by FB project
            [ or help FB 3.0 / to upgrade (?) ]
        + give up on FB and use another embedded DB
    + unless we help FB to have recent MSVC support, not a good
      idea to be chained to waiting for them.
        + FB decided - their win binaries -
          will be built with MSVC13 - for WinXP compat.
             + not decided to -not- be compatible with future versions.
             + unclear if they have issues compiling with newer compilers.
    + originally effort to VS 2015 (Norbert)
        + from a CI perspective - it didn't build based on normal config.
        + decision: fix firebird, or stop building in a default config
        + or bundle their binaries (urgh) (Lionel)
             + deep non-enthusiasm (Norbert, Michael, Bjoern)
        + FB - not building on latest Mac either (Norbert)
             + not just windows.
    + FB - shipped as std. binary file-format is specific to platforms (Caolan)
        + pending work needed to use backup file-format instead.
           + just a bit of work from our side - not fundamental (Lionel)
    + FB - originally introduced to kill HSQLDB (Norbert)
        + don't -have- to have it.
        + current JavaDB is really a problem (Lionel)
           + need to replace it with something else.
    + user will only get FB if they enable experimental (Stephan)
        + problems are mostly theoretical for most users.
    + ancient version of HSQLDB is pretty horrible (Bjoern)
        + the way it is integrated probably responsible for some horribleness
    + decision needed: (Norbert)
        + effort to support VS 2015
        + not eager to turn it off.
AI:        => regret; disable for now for CI (Norbert)
AI:     + write to Firebird people (Lionel)
           => people ecouraged to contribute to FB / MSVC14 support
           => We are still eager to default to Firebird 3 for embedded db.
    + also eager for a co-mentor for Firebird ! (Lionel)
 
* Commit Access
    + ijzervreter from (Chris Sherlock)
        + great work so far; would be happier with more commits first.
    + Dennis Francis via Bubli
        + seconded (Caolan)
        + thirded, like the non-trivial fixes ! (Eike)
            + done (Norbert)
        => write to him (Eike)
 
* Developer Certification (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy/Thorsten)
    + pending next cycle.
