* Release Engineering update (Christian)
+ 4.2.5 RC2 deadline is next Monday
+ 7x patches queued in gerrit.
+ 4.3.0 Beta 2 status
+ delays around translation, lots of problems with context, not
strings themselves: now fixed.
+ builds currently being pushed to mirrors; for public this
evening / tomorrow.
+ 4.3.0 UI and string freeze: week after next - branch for first RC.
+ Android / iOS remote
+ will build a new version with buttons to start/exit remote
+ builds pushed just now for the new version; and available.
+ Late features ?
+ libreofficekit bits / rename etc. (blocking on Michael)
+ OpenGL pieces / status
+ impress work as well ?
+ pending GL capabilities check to avoid crashes.
+ experimentalising 3D chart bits.
+ at risk.
+ some changes in language listbox (Eike)
+ switching to a combo-box, so can enter an arbitrary lang_tag
[ in: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/9447 ]
+ preserving & rendering OOXML Artistic Effects (Jacobo)
[ in: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/9495 ]
+ Calc performanc fixes (?)
* Another OpenSSL issue:
+ awaiting patch, lower priority - release on normal 4.2.5 cadence
+ should we disable heartbeat completely ? (Bjoern)
+ we don't really need it.
AI: + merge existing Fedora patches (Caolan)
* allow upgrade of access2base (Lionel?)
* no - Lionel, no discussion / decision.
+ access2base now included in LibreOffice 4.2 and later
+ technical structure: one Basic library (and that's it)
+ for other branches (other forks of OO.org & LibreOffice 4.1 and earlier),
available as extension
+ competitive "disadvantage": users of other branches
can have newer access2base faster (install extension)
+ not possible for LibO 4.2 & later because extension not allowed
to override part of LibreOffice (only other extension)
+ policy exception for access2base can have new features within stable line?
+ I don't like that
+ allow extensions to override any part of LibreOffice?
+ no, significant resistance
+ allow extensions to override any *script* or *dialog* library from LibreOffice?
+ allow extensions to override any *Basic* or *dialog* library from LibreOffice?
+ allow extensions to override any *Basic* (not *dialog*) library from LibreOffice?
+ rationale: AFAIK, we don't ship any wizard / conversion / ... code as Basic, only examples
+ needs to be validated by domain expert
+ allow extensions to override only access2base?
+ demote access2base to bundled extension?
+ makes Acces2Base much less "official" in LibreOffice
(also more work)
* UX Update (Astron)
+ a few UX advise bugs getting discussed.
+ colour of non-printing characters ...
+ customizable or not ?
* Crashtest update (Markus)
+ new result including writer/impress/draw
+ ignore the calc results, silly one writing invalid files.
+ new control script: looks quite nice alreay.
+ 25k files processed or so.
+ written a script to analyse the results:
+ will provide historic data for the results
+ currently running the whole test document set under memcheck on a server
kindly provided by the City of Largo,
+ four or so serious issues fixed by Michael / Markus.
+ got through 12k (of 45k) or so documents at random.
+ kill the script tomorrow, re-build & run against a current master
to avoid too many duplicates etc.
+ volunteers that like valgrind bug reports appreciated.
* Certification Committee (Stephan/Bjoern/Kendy)
+ will wait for the next scan until ~September.
* Merging disruptive changes (Caolan)
+ should do in a branch, and merge fixes later.
* Hackfests (Bjoern)
+ Paris Hackfest:
+ June 27-28th
+ please add yourself to the wiki:
+ new candidate - Tolouse ...
+ hope to have a November/December hack-fest there.
* QA (Robinson)
+ Bug Hunting Session for 4.3 went well
+ Seeing some new contributors in #libreoffice-qa
+ Even more bibisected regressions this week (64 -> 81)
+ waiting for developer attention ...
+ anything can be done to make them more palateable would be helpful.
+ ideally pruning the problem down to a single-commit (Michael)
+ beyond skills of some QA members.
+ few new people in QA doing bisection to a single commit (Bjoern)
+ please encourage them ! or at least don't discourage them.
+ Unconfirmed count: down to 1100 or so.
+ Joel targetting 500 over the summer; we'll see.
+ closed out a number of un-responded-to NEEDINFO bugs.
+ please keep track if you've tagged them; good to CC people on those.
+ buzilla migration (Norbert)
+ when its good enough will go back to Tollef for a real date.
[ Norbert still crushed by a work cycle ]
+ need to get bugzilla migration bits under gerrit so we can get patches.
+ QA team eager to help out.
