+ can you exclude self reviews ? (Miklos)
+ push to gerrit, for a build, then ack it yourself.
+ Busy week, due to community development week
+ very good response, double as usual license statements,
+ lots of IRC activity
+ 3 new contributor merged (will send pdf)
+ will end Friday - with another blog post on Easy Hacks.
+ have we enough Easy Hacks ? (Michael)
+ removed the how-to-add them here (JanI)
+ we have plenty of them.
+ proposal next week to close a few annoying ones.
+ QA - updated BZ clean Easyhack missing CC/UI/pointer
+ question on NEEDINFO (Heiko)
+ complained wrt. closing it resolved.
+ set it as NEEDINFO to have a trigger - if others agree; can close it ?
+ if UI team don't want it - close it (JanI)
+ "writer needs an OCR feature to scan documents" (Heiko)
+ resolved wontfix ( https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=95779 )
+ if we have two opinions - we can close it ? (Heiko)
+ think its fine to close it (Xisco)
+ don't think so (Bjoern)
+ left open as enhancements - don't come back like zombies
+ can just stay there
+ if someone comes to the point that there is a spec. and can impl.
+ then can decide if they are a good thing.
+ we split out of our bug stats anyway surely (Michael)
+ for a non-enancement eg. change in functionality - just close (JanI)
+ enhancements - where crazy stuff can happen ? (Bjoern)
+ if BZ is full of "I want a pony" requests ? (Kendy)
+ won't we get more and it'll be a mess.
+ closing bugs - message: "if you want to - go for it -> otherwise close"
+ filter & ignore enhancements out of daily business (Bjoern)
+ just white-boarding / crazy stuff in there.
+ would love to know how the stats look for enhancements (Kendy)
+ NEEDINFO can still be useful (Heiko)
+ purpose is to get feedback from the user (Xisco)
+ if not coming up with more - on shortlist to be closed (Bjoern)
=> prefer to have Xisco close the bug.
+ copied/committed translations from pootle to master etc.
+ automatic updates every week in the translations repo.
+ Blog, community development week (super work from Mike) produces a steady flow of questions
+ closed https://redmine.documentfoundation.org/issues/2044 (allow gerrit patches to grow older
than 2 month)
+ just set it to -2 to avoid nagging =)
+ thanks (Thorsten)
+ https://redmine.documentfoundation.org/issues/2094 add wiki page for new commiters
+ sudo: great power comes with responsibility (Miklos)
* EasyHacks Anti Pattern (e.g. tdf#101442) (Bjoern)
+ didn't want to come across this strong
+ multiple things went wrong; eg. Bjoern adding it, and not following it
+ open, valid EasyHack - then went to NeedsUXEval for comments.
+ shouldn't do that - if we get to this state - drop easy-hack.
+ if UX needs to discuss - not ...
+ if has NeedsUXEval already excluded (JanI)
+ scope creeping after work was done issue
+ quite a trivial issue; but prolly not a priority for UX.
+ Sam took it over & did the reviewing it
+ Cor & JanI's encouraging the committer.
+ technical: a 1 line change.
+ good example: what might be wrong on a simple patch (Heiko)
+ terminology a very important aspect.
+ if you rename things, it has a bearing on other places in the code / docs
+ if we don't discuss - but just change it - can end up with a mess.
+ want want is a blocking power ? (Bjoern)
+ no, some time to discuss & give opinions (Heiko)
+ bug filed in August - not UX eval but time to look (Bjoern)
+ after it was filed; wonder - what UX is doing
+ is there no other higher priority than piling in ?
+ highest prio. is resolving conflict (Kendy)
+ checked google trends of hyperlink - at 50% of 2004
+ many things that are called 'link' - it is worth checking
how people use it or not.
+ as soon as start to be a conflict - a good use-case to look,
pros and cons - not a blocking power
+ want to use good data; is it worth the hassle etc.
+ big fan of consistency (Bjoern)
+ if discussed, in general, on ML, and a follow-up bug.
+ like to get a 1st hack in quick - even if we revert later (Michael)
+ flow - before goes public - add UX eval anyway (JanI)
=> avoid negative feedback in easy hack review etc.
=> revert later if necessary, discuss in a follow-up bug.
=> string changes not great target for easy hacks - needs UXEval first.
+ potentially more pre-approved easy-hacks in this area (Thorsten)
+ point of no return:
+ easy hack without needinfo / needsuxeval in the keywords is approved
+ and if it has a user working on it or patch.
* Commit Access
* Developer Certification (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy/Thorsten)
+ three possible names (Kendy)
+ no agreement when to certify them.
+ voting - two for later, 1 undecided, 1 for now.
+ no certifying just now.
+ concerns it gets harder to be certified.
+ perhaps better to de-certify disappeared people
+ re-evaluate after two years, or shorter ? or ...
+ not sure there are strong opinions (Thorsten)
+ lets wait another two months.
+ if people on committee can't find consensus, we are not going to find one here.
+ huge bike-shed over there (Bjoern)
+ what changes in two months ? (Michael)
+ old precedent vs. new people (Bjoern)
+ best to look at whole set, and not de-certify individually
+ look at the whole set instead.
+ more discussion needed (Stephan)
+ pool of good new people is draining
+ two rounds in each year so far.
