Present: Jay, Samuel, Heiko, Tomaz, Akshay


* Dialog control tooltips (Heiko)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=104413
     + Consistency of every control to have a tooltip (Heiko)
     + Lots of translation work to add tooltips to .ui files (Jay, Heiko)
     + Tooltips already provided by help (Jay)
     -> decision needed by ESC whether or not to have 'simple' tooltips by default

* Area tab heavily increases size of dialog

   + Bubli increased the size of the tab to work with gtk3, but it makes it ugly elsewhere (Jay)
     + https://bug-attachments.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=128580 (gtk2, windows)
     + http://i.imgur.com/PmCHOzv.png (gtk3)
   -> AI: Revert Bubli's patch if gtk3 build looks like the screenshot
   -> decision needed by ESC if gtk3 should be pushed even in the current state of controls
