GSoC projects

* Ideas do not have code pointers, making things harder for new gsoc students
* Discussion on Customisation dialog (Akshay)
* Akshay will do the special character project mentored by Samuel
+ limited scope without OCR part, which would be very pity as OCR would be a killer feature
+ maybe completed by another project
+ https://user-prompt.com/libreoffice-design-session-special-character/


* New default bullets
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=106507
+ Not a fan as presented (Stuart c4)
+ Better we align the bullet/numbering workflow/dialog to what has been done with area fill style
meaning presets, show properties on selection, ability to add own presets... (Heiko c7)
+ Users actually requested the shown dash (Eric)
+ Looking forward to see the design (Jay)

* Color picker
+ New default color palette https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87538
+ no of rows
+ 8 rows http://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=131473 (Heiko)
+ 9 rows http://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=131574 (Jay)
+ don't like scrolling in that dialog, so rather 9 than 8 rows (opinion Cor)
+ survey runs, results indicate equal acceptance of v2 and v3
+ lets have a talk during the week with Thibaut (Jay)
+ different number of rows based on OS or DE
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=106458
