+ Norbert, Thorsten, Caolan, Bjoern, Christian, Kendy, jani,
Michael M, Miklos, Eike, Sophie, Robinson, Olivier, Armin
* Completed Action Items:
+ hunt down co-mentors for Zoner / Calc, Orcus, ODF styles (Thorsten)
[ done except for Firebird (needs a volunteer ;)) ]
+ build a plan for publishing the HTML documentation (Olivier, Kendy)
[ done, and published, and integrated with pootle too ].
* Pending Action Items:
+ connect to David Ostrovsky to connect gerrit to pootle (Olivier)
+ suggest concrete way ahead to clean up SfxItemSet::Put(nWhich) (Oliver)
+ give out Barn-Stars https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Barnstars/2016-05 (All)
+ investigate clobberring glew instead of lots of #ifdefs: (Marco, Oliver)
[ pending time to re-visit ]
+ tweak UI and get LiveConnect API key / build case for board (Christian)
+ attempt to re-build a recent gstreamer 1.0 / core spec file
on our CentOS6 base (tdf#94508) (Christian)
* Release Engineering update (Christian)
+ 5.2 Beta 1
+ next week for 5.2
+ UI for OSX - can't un-hide rulers - reports from QA.
+ bisect repos for Mac ? (Michael)
+ apparently a recent change in last 5 days (Cloph)
+ 24th May - feature freeze
+ getting close! Tuesday ....
+ Late Features ?
+ nothing obvious.
+ 5.1.4 RC1
+ deadline is early week 22
+ going well; 6-7 patches in the queue for review.
+ Android & iOS Remote

+ rotating / pulsating status bits for searching / discovery ?
* Documentation (Olivier)
+ delivered update of Ch 5 for documentation.
+ hangout with docs guys
+ getting the team together.
+ help content patch merging
+ touched the online help
+ looking for a technical solution for an issue
+ need to prepare a detailed problem report.
+ XSLT - not so trivial to explain.
+ concerned help is a sub-module
+ but images eg. screenshots are in the main repo.
+ if want to make help-content richer:
+ need to add video / gifs / etc.
+ don't want that in the core (Olivier, Thorsten)
+ easy to extend with an additional protocol (Kendy)
+ not in images.zip
+ for images, not so trivial; but - two storages is do-able.
+ help exclusive images -> help sub-project (Olivier)
+ Helpcontent modernization meta bug:
* GSoC 2016 (Thorsten)
+ community bonding period ends end of this week: May, 22nd
+ if your student disappeared - shout now otherwise ...
* UX Update (Kendy)
+ missed the call, but they discussed including new sets of custom-shape
+ no concrete conclusion yet.
+ UI easy-hacks that need code-pointers
+ mark 'needs dev-eval' topic-UI.
* Crashtest update (Caolan)
+ 0 import failure, 5 export failure, mis-built coverity, next slot tomorrow
+ not reality checked the export failures
+ cppasserts not detected as asserts
+ looks like we don't get problems from fall-through.
* Hackfests (Bjoern)
+ hole in the summer, not much going on.
+ next hackfests:
+ Germany, Munich, LiMux; End of May 2016 (Jan-Marek)
+ Orga: https://wiki.debian.org/BSP/2016/05/de/Munich
+ 27-29 May (parallel to the Debian Sun Camp)
+ anyone going to Munich ? (Thorsten)
+ perhaps some CIB guys.
+ Mike Saunders is close & interested (Bjoern)
+ next venues / suggestions
+ Chaos event - good for outreach; at the same time as Munich.
+ https://www.froscon.de/en/home/Flosscon in Bonn, Germany
+ August - 2 weeks before LibreOffice conference ?
+ perhaps piggy-back on their rooms.
+ like FOSDEM at a university etc.
+ https://2016.guadec.org/ in Karlsruhe, Germany (3 weeks before LO conf)
+ more suggestions welcome
+ Autumn / week-long Home-Hacking in Hamburg with students? (Bjoern)
+ advertise at university ? C++ training ? etc.
* LibreOffice Conference in Brno - CfP open (Sophie)
+ Kendy & Thorsten on program committee:
+ deadline is mid July.
* Mentoring/easyhack update (janI)

+ new easyHacks:
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99891 mentor:fito -> "Update installer
fonts to match newer versions of Windows"
+ create your own by updating Keywords to eg. "easyHack, difficultyBeginner, skillCpp,
+ please remember, a codepointer is mandatory, and typically a look from an experienced developer
+ create new easy hacks from these ones or remove "needsDevEval" if not feasible):
+ gitdm is now available on vm174 (nor running automatically)
+ working on script to read/add bugs in BZ (to update easyhacks)
+ for compressing over-bloated easy hacks
+ easyHack that miss information, should be marked NEEDINFO
+ if it is missing code-pointers; add NEEDINFO state
+ otherwise it is seen by all contributors.
+ Gerrit review -2 for "work in progress"
+ a 'WIP' in the text somewhere.
+ can someone use -2 as some people do already.
+ can we use drafts ? (Michael)
+ people want to test-compile (JanI)
+ marking -2 is no overhead.
+ the opposite problem - review not a hard requirement (Miklos)
+ could we use +2 instead ?
+ Jenkins reacts on creation of a new patch (Norbert)
+ in past - when don't want consider for review
+ recommendation - put a minus something - author, not pushed.
+ pushing for review to master (Miklos)
+ just want a CI build result; no need to review it.
+ to avoid extra work - personal +2 sounds great (Bjoern)
+ only committers can give +2 (Miklos)
+ no point in wasting reviewer time on patches just in for CI.
+ +2 for developer's doesn't need review just do CI first.
+ -2 for needs CI build, but not needing review (work in progress).
+ WIP in commit msg (Cloph)
+ couple of cases got in without being removed.
+ would love a pipeline sol'n (Michael)
+ push it and auto-mege if CI likes it
+ dream solution too (Bjoern)
AI: + perhaps a way to have a chron that queries & merges (Norbert)
+ if +2 by author and +1 by jenkins -> auto-push =)
* Developer Certification (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy/Thorsten)
+ after GSOC setup.
* Jenkins / CI update (Norbert)

+ Norbert's proverb: 'one break a day keep contributors at bay...'
+ this week pretty good
+ only 2x failed windows builds.
+ ironically - bad platform is Linux.
+ dbgutil make check borked 1/2 a day (Miklos)
+ 'broken' is the transition count from green->red
+ Armin's issue
+ signal handler on Linux - doing lots of stuff.
+ wants to get the Solar Mutex.
+ main-thread, holding it, other threads want to finish.
+ signal 'pure' code can't do anything (Michael)
+ always been bad
+ at the least - a worker thread (Norbert)
+ perhaps better to un-plug the solar mutex (Michael)
+ drop the SEGV handler for unit tests instead ? (Michael)
+ solar mutex taken at a high level (Norbert)
+ not the only lock (Michael)
+ eg. glibc non-recursive memory allocator lock
any memory problem can cause this.
-> deadlock on allocate.
+ crashing would be better (Armin)
+ best to disable osl_signal registration in unit-test mode
+ can we test for unit-test mode ? (Michael)
+ VCL_HIDE_WINDOWS is the guy (Miklos)
=> suggest turn off signal handling in this mode.
+ want only the main thread to handle the signal (Armin)
* l10n (Sophie)
+ work in progress for 5.2
+ l10n for lool ongoing.
* Ubuntu Crash reports (Bjoern)
+ looking at them from the releases
+ hand-wavy summary: lots better than previous releases
+ 5.1 seems to crash less often than earlier releases.
+ quite a lot of older crashes, seem to be just gone.
+ some crash-on-exit VclPtr bits.
* QA update (Robinson)
+ UNCONFIRMED: 629
+ down again; thanks to all involved.
+ enhancements: 64
+ in ux-advise: 32
+ needAdvice at 44

+ tdf#92516 - "x" accelerator and mouse click not exiting StartCenter
in "File -> Exit LibreOffice" menu on Windows.
+ Mail merge regressions (Bjoern)
+ http://tdf.io/mmregressions (10 open; 10 open last meeting)
+ all re-tested recently; waiting on a couple of them.
