* AppImage - Linux portable edition (Yousuf)
+ Bug report - https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=97269
+ moggi said on infra IRC that the decision should likely be talked here
+ would like to setup a download page - http://www.libreoffice.org/download/appimage/
+ appimages can be created by repacking existing builds
+ daily build example - https://github.com/AppImage/AppImages/blob/master/recipes/libreoffice/Recipe
+ Antonio Faccioli‏ is creating scripts for language bundles similar to the windows portable editions
http://www.libreoffice.org/download/portable-versions/
+ unclear what the future holds here: Snap, FlatPack, AppImage (Michael)
+ no real need for Linux portable edition (Cloph)
+ tar-ball can be unzipped.
+ some people may want it do why not ? (Heiko)
+ up-loading takes time, maintenance etc. (Cloph)
+ if 2 people use it – build it themselves pwrt. daily builds.
+ how is flat-pack hosted currently ? (Michael)
+ build & up-load, and cloph pushes it (Stephan)
+ whenever there is a 5.3.x it is build – following Fresh.
+ no daily build.
+ the request is “become a linux distribution” (Michael)
+ flat-pack doesn’t include the GNOME run-time (Stephan)
+ AppImage sounds like it will include ~everything:
Gstreamer + all codecs etc. - from some random PC (Michael)
+ can Jay distribute it instead ?
+ how large is it ?
+ AppImage works hard to solve a problem we already solved:
of being an ISV on Linux – it is hard but solveable.
+ Sad to miss jphilips in the discussion; do it again later ?

aiming to standardize calculation
+ Considered as regression in document line spacing (tdf#105860,
tdf#104932) and UI line spacing (tdf#107249)
+ line spacing - https://bug-attachments.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=131016
+ UI line spacing - https://bug-attachments.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=132669
+ Keep the patch and take backward incompatibility into account ?
+ UI: don’t care (Michael)
+ Documents → matter a lot – but …
+ currently was inconsistent cross-platforms.
+ new behaviour is more interoperable (Miklos)
+ what does backwards-compat mean wrt. An
inconsistent previous state ? (Michael)
+ outside writer lack of compat-flags (Miklos)
