+ nice bump on the windows machines.

+ how to re-base / re-trigger builds if no other changes on the branch ? (Michael)
+ can't do that without re-basing (Norbert)
+ avoid builds for nothing.
+ rational - random CI fluke - a random bug in the product / test (Norbert)

* l10n (Sophie)
+ nothing new - awaiting Dwayne's feedback & new strings
+ not blocked for everyone - some projects have work still
+ but for those who finished their last localization - wait for the 5.4 strings from master.

* Major release 6.0 in Q1/2018 acc. ML (Heiko)
+ should we use the '6.0' version for next year.
+ Italo says scheduled for Q1 2018
+ how do we get branding / visual identity sorted ?
+ hope this is not a developers' issue: marketing, design etc. (Michael)
+ does 6.0 provide a chance to drop WinXP ?
+ people expect a big change with a change to major version (JMux)
+ when there is nothing to release increase the number (Kendy)
+ both have been seen in the wild.
=> marketing make the call.
