New business:

Meeting opens at 11:00 with:

After last week's triage session, 8 remaining priority 1, LSB 
5 blocker bugs existed (thanks Mats and Jeff L for the 
re-review).  see bugs: 2877 3164 3165 3166 3167 3168 3463 3754 
at https://lsbbugs.linuxfoundation.org/

Remaining is the Add / hold off decision on GTK / GDK This has 
become more clear that there is concealed 'rot' in the prior 
import process -- see:
where Mats and Russ have been working on the matter, after 
Jeff L added his parsing script at GitHub.  Contributions and 
pull requests welcomed 

Robert points out that ODT produced PDFs do not render 
properly.  Our tools are letting us down --- graphic authoring 
standard still a problem.  Russ notes Graphviz flowcharting
and workflows
and a GUI editting tool

Jeff L notes he needs to issue a 'last call' notice in the ML, 
as well as some side lists (relevant Debian list)

Kay follow up on the use of Launchpad with Jeff J, as to 
workflow.  One problem is that Launchpad is so tightly 
integrated with BZR that it does not fit well with migrating 
in with Bugzilla and the potential move to git.  Russ finds 
under the meta-sponsor of: Development Infrastructure for 
OpenStack Projects

Call ends at local Noon
