* Mentoring Update (JanI)
+ pretty calm week - working on release & other bits.
+ gerrit: 165 open patches of which 105 can be merged if no open comments
75 from contributors of which 43 can be merged if no open comments
+ Wiki, getInvolved updated with softer wording on license and git commit message
+ Otherwise Work as usual
* Visual Studio 2015
+ originally wanted only 1x version to avoid cross-influence
+ OTOH 5.1 doesn't build with it
+ concerned wrt. switching tool-chain mid-release.
+ if want to build 5.1 and master - need both.
+ what are relative risks of:
+ 2013+2015 vs. back-porting etc. ?
+ different jenkins slaves ? (JanI)
+ budget good, but not that good.
+ would need to do more setup work etc.
+ obsolete old compiler (nicer C++) - new baseline
+ ensure new builders can build it.
+ tinderbox is good enough ? (Michael)
+ problems with combinations; dbgutil, 32bit, 64bit etc. (Norbert)
+ both compilers on 1x machine (JanI)
+ linker problems, depending
+ not a big issue (Norbert)
+ each tree with its own compiler.
+ different libraries linked in etc.
+ about releases ? (Michael)
+ about Jenkins builds (Norbert)
+ release machines are locked down differently.
+ rather go with install both on T-boxes (Stephan)
+ will find problems in official cloph builds.
+ better than switching to 2015 on 5.1 line
=> install both versions
+ install 2015 on 2013.
+ consensus from all.
+ Most Pressing Bugs:
http://ur1.ca/nkp0t + tdf#95709 - [DISPLAY] Presentation mode renders graphics wrong
+ Armin / Thorsten ?
+ tdf#96172 - Crash in layout SwSectionFrame after opening particular document
+ ODT crash [was: Crash on opening DOCX]
+ tdf#89034 - OS X: Text not being justified in Persian and other RTL languages
+ Common issue -> lots of duplicates
+ Unfortunately, predates earliest bibisect range for OS X
+ Request for additional 'max' bibisect repos:
Linux daily, 4.2, 4.1; Win 4.4, 4.3
+ building them (Norbert)
+ up-load is not automated
+ git gc kills the box so has to be paused.
+ pre-dates those repos.
+ one epoc is missing.
+ another contains all release versions 3.3->4.3
+ http://dev-downloads.libreoffice.org/bibisect/mac/ + surely part of the coretext move ? (Michael)
+ v. likely (Norbert)
+ Mail merge regressions (Bjoern)
+ http://bit.ly/1POJrmp (7 open; 7 open last meeting)
+ (Still pending?) AI: push the last MM fix to 5.0 too
+ about to push some 30x patches (Kendy)
+ mostly the UI.
+ jmux working on fixing things.
+ tdf#96847 - Android viewer crashes on every file (android 4.4.4 & 5.x)
