+ corrected esc-mentoring with ESC suggestions,
thanks to Miklos for pointing at the obvious
+ Working to make 5.2 (and master) compile and work with OS-X Sierra
and update build instructions
+ Busy helping new contributors after the development community week
+ Longer discussions on Easyhack tickets and how to act, when work is
done or in progress
+ Remark we do not have a similar problem on Gerrit (which I do not understand)
+ A "survey" among new contributors shows that:
+ the biggest deficit is the lack of a development IDE
+ clearly the top request.
+ vi/emacs/make are for old people (includes me)
+ gdb is next to impossible to use
+ opengrok is super
+ would help to make gbuild -> IDE more complete for Visual Studio
+ how many windows developers ? (Michael) (talked to 5)
+ 2 only windows, 3 Linux + Windows.
+ like to edit on Windows.
+ would love a larger sample (Michael)
+ (Bjoern: ongoing, but Windows is such a PITA ...)
+ Contributors and licenses, since I do the "welcome" mail,
should I expand esc-mentoring to watch out for missing licenses ?
+ is it good to watch for non-licensed submission.
AI: + dig out some tooling for janI (Michael)
+ The new Acknowledgemnt pdf (signed by our chair woman) will be sent to 3 people
+ Got a suggestion to make a page for new committers, advice etc.
+ Can we please close some of the easyhacks convert foo style to xfoo style,
they cost a lot of time and seems to bring more problems ?
+ Along with cosmetic changes like typos in comments.
+ UNO service constructor changes (Stephan)
+ easy ones already covered
=> remove the easy hack flag (Stephan)
* l10n (Sophie)
+ lots of updates on pootle.
+ working on a new set of embedded templates to make them localisable
+ want a good preview of templates
+ ideal if we don't duplicate the file lots of times (Michael)
+ suggestion to do localisation free templates with Latin (Heiko)
* Bisected bugs open: keyword 'bisected'
+ more accurate - down to a single commit.
+ can we add this stat generation to esc-commit-stats.pl ?
Xisco: I'll do it
