[Libreoffice-qa] minutes of ESC call ...

* Present:
    + Xisco, Stephan, Jan-Marek, Heiko, Olivier, Caolan, Michael W,
      Michael M, Tomaz, Miklos, Christian, Kendy

* Completed Action Items:

* Pending Action Items:
    + chase old security - viva tool / company via Vasily (Thorsten)

* ImageURL bits (Tomaz)
    + https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/Budget2017#Image_handling_re-work
    + Graphic pieces were handled by string in the API
    + properties in the API – used to be a string URL, now XGraphic.
    + question is – how to handle it for back-compatibility
        + probably old macros use the old API.
    + is there some way we can get strings still ? (Michael)
        + was previously an embedded URL – this will now go away (Tomaz)
            + if the URL is external – still makes sense.
            + some APIs eg. fillbitmap – used only internal URLs before.
            + how can we warn the user of this ?
    + Thorsten had some concerns wrt. existing macros (Stephan)
        + on the mailing list.
        + what should continue to work is common use-case:
            + URL for graphic to include somewhere, could in the past
              set that property to a URL-name; make sure it still works.
    + how would I put an image in a document from a file ? (Michael)
        + put a URL in the property – and it works (Tomaz)
            + for setting – it makes sense still.
        + getting the properties back not such a big deal (Tomaz)
        + if used to set external URL ? (Stephan)
            + reading it should get that back then.
        + in un-linked graphics case (Miklos)
            + sending the URL – an un-linked graphics is created
            + can’t return much – except the unique-id of the graphic
                + we want to kill that.
                + the vnd.sun.star ID ? (Stephan)
                     + that’s correct (Tomaz)
                     + we don’t want to get that back (for read) (Stephan)
    + good new things (Tomaz)
         + image loss is much harder to achieve.
         + GraphicObject unique-id is not used anymore
         + re-working GraphicObjects
             + XGraphic now used instead
             + the Swap functionality goes to Graphic itself
                 + and gets simplified
         + external link handling & handling of source graphics
           should be simplified too.
             + so Graphic will work much better, and be easier to maintain.
             + lots done in SdrGraphicObject that doesn’t belong there.
                 + swapping triggered from there – can be transparent inside
                   the Graphic itself
         + interested to get faster image sizing (Michael)
         + best thing – getting swapping transparent to the code (Tomaz)
         + created a meta-bug to track issues wrt. refactoring (Xisco)
           https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=116280

    + Kill the quickstarter
      + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=116142
      + “can we remove it” - normally ‘no’ (Michael)
          + what is the rational ?
          + is currently off by default
          + and is used by large numbers of people.
      => keep and get a summary / tracker for quickstarter bugs (?)
            + META: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=111928

    + Remove functions "3 seconds in Insert/Delete mode"
      (alt+insert, alt+delete in Writer > Tables)
      + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=116452
      + https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Shortcut_Keys_for_Writer#Shortcut_Keys_for_Tables_in_LibreOffice_Writer
     + think this is poor usability; ticket is about hard-coded key-combination
     + documented in 3.3 and ~ancient.
     + sounds like some power-user feature (Miklos)
       + bad thing – users find out later.
     => submit patch to remove it.

   + Introduce Colibre icon theme
     + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115867
     + full-featured, well-maintained and all SVG icon theme
       well fitting for Windows
     + much appreciated; many thanks to Andreas Keinz (Michael)
     + avail in nightly, backport to 6.0 to get feedback from community ?
     + we have a UX freeze for docs etc. for a reason (Michael)
     + planned next steps for 6.1 if feedback is positive
       + make default for Windows,
       + replace Galaxy as last fallback
          + drop Galaxy (make it an extension)
          + good to replace Galaxy ! (Michael)
              + problem is it needs every single icon first.
     + already at 6.0.3 RC1 – a bit late (Jmux)
       + Alpha0 of 6.1.x is due soon (Michael)
          + April 23rd (Jmux)
          + builds people can easily get.
     + would like to blog about new icons (Heiko)
       + get input from the community etc.
   => default to Colibre for Alpha0 & commit default to master ~now …
       + good stuff.
     + have posts on how to create / install icon theme on design blog (Heiko)

* Crash Hunting (Caolan)
    + 595 (-1706) import failure, 8(-2) export failures
       + most recent run down, but high.
       + Michael S fixed an assert, and Ash fixed exporter
       + hoping to be at small numbers again soon.
    + 12 (+8) coverity
       + coverity scan re-appeared – due to security problem
       + servers no longer mining crypto-currency.  
       + was +50 in 4 weeks or so
       + fixed most of them – lots are weak: un-checked returns
       + around 3 of significance - ~1 proper bug/week.
    + forcepoint round 5
       + fixed all of their stuff
       + queued for round 6
       + total ~25 issues for us.
    + 45 fuzzers * 3 sanitizers+engine combos (asan+libfuzzer,
            ubsan+libfuzzer, asan+afl), font parser last added
       + still finding things at a low rate; perhaps 1 each 1.5 days
         + getting to the end of this strategy (?)
         + different strategies find different things
         + normal to find 4 tools telling us something is busted.
         + oss-fuzz minimizes the document for you; eg. 40byte doc.

    + numbers ~same as last week
    + some connectivity problems yesterday  today.
    + worked on trapping the term signal on windows boxes
       + more reliable after aborting
       + didn’t see windows bots failing, after being killed by Jenkins bots
    + re-starting a build – is that available to everyone ? (Stephan)
       + ‘resume’ (Cloph)
          + available to those with permission in Jenkins UI
          + but happy to give access to regular contributors
          + turning off bots under the same permission too …
AI:    + create account & cloph will add you to the group (Stephan)
       + can this permission be given to the guy who created the build ? (Stephan)
          + Jenkins doesn’t know who the gerrit owner is etc. (Cloph)
