+ Sophie, Christian, Jan I, Miklos, Armin, Caolan, David, Eike, Kendy,
Olivier, Michael M, Heiko, Robinson, Jan-Marek, Norbert, Michael S,
* Completed Action Items:
+ create large-scale cosmetic change page proposal (JanI)
[ ccache not an issue (Michael)
AI: + simplify the text somewhat (Michael) ]
+ Decision needed?
+ add access for Lionel to the same Mac (Cloph)
+ talk at infra-meeting wrt. more remote Macs for devs (JanI/Norbert)
[ no budget this year; next year maybe ].
* Pending Action Items:
+ poke at MSDN licenses (Michael)
[ waiting for a response on new process ]
+ investigate a cron job that queries & auto-merges (Norbert)
[ the solution proposed by David - using his query & a JSON script
to refine it - will work - needs a bit more python (Norbert) ]
+ 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)
+ 5.1.5 RC2 status
+ been tagged & on pre-release server, announced to early-QA & QA mailing lists
+ will be pushed to mirrors & announced later today
+ 5.2.0 RC4 - planned as final
+ will tag late evening today.
+ will announce ~Wednesday next week
+ 4x patches waiting in gerrit - already with a review.
+ will chase on IRC.
+ Now: one review to -5-2 branch, and another two to:
+ libreoffice 5-2-0 branch
+ Android & iOS Remote
+ Android tinderbox now back and working (Miklos)
* Windows XP deprecation for 5.2 story ? (Cloph)
+ goal - to have the baseline be based on Windows Server 2016, and VS 2015
+ unclear if builds created with this combination will run on WinXP
+ Thorsten had a stackoverflow comment saying it should work.
+ just giving warning that if there are big hassles with WinXP API etc.
we may drop it for 5.3 and onwards.
+ no real reason to drop it as a platform for now.
+ just want to give the advanced warning that it may go sooner (Norbert)
+ sob stories about old / stolen WinXP (Heiko)
+ no sympathy - if running a 10 year old OS, can run old LibreOffice (Norbert)
+ this is a meritocracy, who does the work chooses (Norbert, et. al)
+ even if we did remove it - always room for volunteers to make their own builds (Bjoern)
+ but no news here: we continue as before (Michael)
* LibreOffice Conference in Brno (Kendy)
+ travelling to Brno -> fly to Prague / Vienna unlikely to go direct
(BMI has a flight from Munich, others from London).
+ Community-day -> no ESC, meet in the evening.
* Membership Committee plug (Michael)
+ Please send nominations and self-nominations via e-mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org (which reaches the Board of
Directors in private) and also (!) to
email@example.com (which is a public mailing
list). We kindly ask nominees who would like to stand for
elections to provide a statement of up to 75 words on their
candidacy as continuous text (so no bullet lists or multiple
paragraphs). In addition, please also provide your full name,
e-mail address and your corporate affiliation, if any, and
please announce that you will provide information on all future
changes as soon as possible.
+ tooling uses git & is user-friendly for devs.
* Documentation (Olivier)
+ Getting Started 5.1 under final assembly (Jean Weber)
+ Chapters "cleaned" of direct formatting - affect CAT tools (Milos Sramek)
+ Meeting with Doc' community yesterday:
+ recognising & celebrating Authors: Promote authors as we promote dev's
=> grab Mike Saunders about that.
+ Bug 96015 much appreciated: have more entries in Help menu to Doc's contents
+ Design team has OK'ed it.
+ Books should also be a "product" for the community as software is
+ More downloads -> more contributors to doc's
+ Some books must be translated from other languages
+ best book about Base is in German
+ get other commnuties to help in English books.
+ any thoughts on stack-exchange style pieces ? (Bjoern)
+ not brought it to the docs team yet. (Olivier)
+ approach needs to be proven.
+ will mail some more ideas.
* GSoC 2016 (JanI/Armin)
+ business as usual
+ Next deadline is August 23rd for final evaluation.
+ reminder - blogging at a minimum helps docs / QA teams etc.
* UX Update (Heiko)
+ Discussion about Layers/Groups in Draw finished and ready for publication
+ positive feedback from Thorsten
+ idea is to upvote the Navigator into a fully functional navigational tree
with access to collections (renamed layers) and groups, having an easy access
as well as an expert view; should be working in all apps
+ review very much appreciated, please give some.
+ navigator somewhat tough to hack on (Michael)
+ expert vs. non-expert mode: global or per-widget ? (Michael)
+ two different types of peple covered (Heiko)
+ average guys - a simple drawing; needs to be easy
+ will ask the community in the blog post (Heiko)
* Crashtest update (Caolan)
+ 1 import failure, 7 export failures, coverity pending
+ discovered there was a timeout, throwing an assert after 2 minutes
an issue on the crash-testing box, but not when tested.
+ marketing numbers of 0.00 for coverity correct as of last testing cf. 5.2 branch
+ database documents being round-tripped (Michael S)
+ had a tendency to deadlock - 10% of them.
+ ended up being killed by the python script: didn't result in a crashlog.
+ only get an entry in the crashlog if we get a dispose exception.
+ have a fix for that; to introduce in the database document the
solar mutex for locking
+ another potential gift that will give and give.
+ crash test now runs without deadlocking
-> can we fix the python script - to report hangs ? (Michael)
+ some where writer has an infinite layout loop (Michael S)
+ should these be reported in crash-testing ? not sure.
* Infra meeting (Norbert)
+ started on Monday, got very practical on Tuesday - after loosing a server overnight
+ very happy with it - goal was to understand better the deep infra
+ much more confident now.
+ similar experience (JanI)
+ learned a lot, can help more in future.
* Hackfests (Bjoern)
+ next hackfests: nothing confirmed yet.
+ next venues / suggestions
+ Akademy / FSFE summit - in the week before LibOCon ? (Thorsten)
+ more suggestions welcome
* Mentoring/easyhack update (janI)
