=============

Meeting opens at 11:00 with:

Jeff notes that it is time for stable updates to the LSB 4 
series again, but the scope should be smaller, so that it may 
go more quickly

This is driven off of a 'roll-up' bug that notes candidates 
for inclusion.  See:

    https://lsbbugs.linuxfoundation.org/buglist.cgi?keywords=rollup%2C%20&keywords_type=allwords&list_id=9400&query_format=advanced&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED

    which may be generated through the 'Advanced Search' 
function, then noting at the bottom: Custom Search | and set: 
'Keyword' 'is equal to' 'rollup'

    As a matter of Bugzilla usage, when logged in, one may then 
save that custom search as a named search 'shortcut'


Jeff mentions that we have two applicants on GSOC matters, but 
we need mentors


Glen surfaces some missing headers, found incident to his SANE 
work and noted on the mailing list in recent days.  There 
seemed to be no substantial objection to adding the needed 
headers in LSB 5

    https://lsbbugs.linuxfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2143

conclusion:  this will probably happen in LSB 5 timeframe


Jeff mentions the 'elsa' C++ parser library, which is a 
project independent of the gcc, and the llvm projects.

These are pages which seem a bit stale, but there there is a 
recent 'success story' from the Mozilla folks, which Jeff will 
try to find the link of, and to supplement in these minutes 
before they are issued.  Russ finds: Mozilla seems to have 
called their extensions first: Pork,

    https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Pork

and then: Oink

    http://daniel-wilkerson.appspot.com/oink/index.html
    https://github.com/dsw/oink-stack/

Interesting stuff in C++ space, as the development and 
implementation of C++ has varied over time, at first striving 
to retain compatability with C, which was essentially 
re-buffed by the C community (similar to the forking we 
discussed las week as to libpng*

Call ends at local 11:45
