* GSoC

    + https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/dashboard/

    + Approved UI projects:
        + Improve user experience with Table Styles (mentors: dev - kendy/miklos, ui - jay/heiko)
        + Review of the Area Fill dialog (mentors: dev Bubli , ui - jay/heiko)
        + Redesigning the Template Manager (mentors: dev - samuel, ui - jay)
        + Review of Sidebar and it's functionality (mentors: dev Bubli , ui - jay)
        + Infrastructure for defining toolbars via .ui (Glade) files (mentors: dev - kendy/samuel, ui - heiko)

    + Started a weekly update meeting with Rishabh (Area Fill project) and Bubli like in SCRUM
        + what has been done, what is planned, where are the bottlenecks
        + sounds great (Kendy)
        + encourage your students to hack already, bonding by producing code is best :slight_smile: (Kendy)

* Draw (Heiko)

    + Started to create metabugs for better organization (tdf#99563, tdf#99525)

* Sidebar survey (Heiko)

    + No complaints about the proposed guidelines
    + Added to the HIG at the wiki

* Help content (Jay / Kendy)

    + http://vm173.documentfoundation.org/

    + Olivier updated the xslt so that it produces a list of keywords now (Kendy)
        + see eg. http://vm173.documentfoundation.org/text/swriter/main0000.xhp
        + not sorted yet, but a good direction of developments I think :slight_smile: (Kendy)

* needsUXEval (Heiko / Kendy)

    + now it is not necessary to use the 'ux-advise' component any more
    + instead, add the 'needsUXEval' keyword, and the ux-advice@ ML will be CC'd
    + should we kill the 'ux-advise' component? (Samuel)
        + probably not yet, as it shows which bugs are untriaged (Kendy)
        + but when we move them to the neesUXEval keyword, then yes (Kendy)

* Tabs etc

    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99528
    + http://i.imgur.com/aLP247v.png
    + Three options for navigation right now: tabs (e.g. paragraph style), tree (options), and icon view (hyperlink)
    + We should have one way of presentation (Heiko)

* Calc Default Header (Samuel)

    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99296
    + Clearing the text (Table1/Page1) doesn't solve the issue since empty space remains
    + Disabling the header/footer by default is better (Tomaz, Samuel, Heiko)
    + Worries that people can find the setting (Samuel)
    + Excel has no header/footer, let's do the same (Kendy)
    + Will research a bit more, so that there is one place to set this (Samuel)

* "Custom Animation" probably should be called just "Animation" (Samuel)

    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=95387
    + agreed to change (all)

* Drop the term "Manager" (Samuel)

    + Template Manager -> Templates
    + Extension Manager -> Extensions
    + Are there more?
    + agree (all)
    + Problem with "Extensions" and "Add-Ons" in the same menu then, postpone this

* Add-Ons vs Extensions (Samuel)

    + Term "Add-Ons" used once: http://i.imgur.com/qpK5AsK.png
    + Rename Add-ons to Extensions and move Extensions Manager into this submenu + rename to Organize Extensions (like for Makro) (Heiko)
    + Drawback is a submenu with only one item by default (Samuel)

* Shortcut for Extension Manager (Jay)

    + Is Ctrl + Alt + E a good shortcut?
    + no objections on the ML, so pushed that (Samuel)
