Topics and Discussion:

Code Colorizing:
    [3/31 - VN]: -
As the developer community uses Writer and Impress to communicate code snippets with their peers, code highlighting or colorizing is a beneficial feature. Enhancing existing features in Writer (Styles -> Source Text) to include colorizing and indentation can be the starting point. However, this requires UI and Engineering team to take it forward. + Base guide need more attention on accuracy rather than color code (SF)
    + Code colorizing is an nice addition (all)

Release Notes:
    [3/31 - VN]:
Including the experimental features in the release notes will be helpful for the authors and reviewers. Is there a possibility to include these items in the release notes?
     + Remind developers to list experimental modes in release notes

+ Do the team wish to change the documentation development workflow and adopt this macro process?
     + covered in the code colorizing topic

* Guides error/mistake report (OH)
   + Need a better way to let readers report mistakes and errors.
      + Mailing List ?
      + Bugzilla ?
      + Redmine ?
      + Ask (aka Discourse)?
   + We need to clearly inform user where to report (e.g. in the Preface)
     + Ask Advise to experts
     + Nextcloud app for tracking issues?
