        + nice bump on the windows machines.

  + how to re-base / re-trigger builds if no other changes on the branch ? (Michael)
     + can't do that without re-basing (Norbert)
        + avoid builds for nothing.
     + rational - random CI fluke - a random bug in the product / test (Norbert)

* l10n (Sophie)
     + nothing new - awaiting Dwayne's feedback & new strings
     + not blocked for everyone - some projects have work still
         + but for those who finished their last localization - wait for the 5.4 strings from master.

* Major release 6.0 in Q1/2018 acc. ML (Heiko)
     + should we use the '6.0' version for next year.
     + Italo says scheduled for Q1 2018
     + how do we get branding / visual identity sorted ?
     + hope this is not a developers' issue: marketing, design etc. (Michael)
     + does 6.0 provide a chance to drop WinXP ?
        + people expect a big change with a change to major version (JMux)
          + when there is nothing to release increase the number (Kendy)
             + both have been seen in the wild.
     => marketing make the call.
