(14:59:42) mla: hi
(15:00:16) mdamboldt: Hi
(15:00:18) of_oracle: Howdy
(15:00:25) mdamboldt: Welcome to todays release status meeting.
(15:00:44) mdamboldt: OpenOffice.org 3.3 RC9
(15:00:49) mdamboldt: Upload is in progress.
(15:01:02) UweL [~chatzilla@nat/sun/x-qqpgisjklxepjvvi] entered the room.
(15:01:58) enoki: hi
(15:02:10) mdamboldt: A couple of new stopper issues have been raised on the mailing list, after start of RC9 build.
(15:02:38) mdamboldt: Those new possible stoppers are under evaluation currently by QA and DEV teams.
(15:03:01) mdamboldt: Namely we've seen the following:
(15:03:11) mdamboldt: Issue 116318
(15:03:16) IZBot: Presentation DEFECT NEW P3 axial gradient has wrong border in presentation mode http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=116318
(15:03:22) mdamboldt: Issue 108961
(15:03:33) IZBot: timed out - please visit the URL yourself: http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=108961
(15:03:43) mdamboldt: Issue 116339
(15:03:49) Mechtilde: I prefer to set them to 3.3.1
(15:03:49) IZBot: Presentation DEFECT NEW P2 OOo freezes for minutes on slide change http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=116339
(15:04:00) mdamboldt: Issue 116035
(15:04:05) IZBot: framework DEFECT NEW P2 msvcr90.dll not found, nothing works until manually copied DLL into ooo_path/program http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=116035
(15:04:43) Mechtilde: and there is a defect on the Mirror
(15:04:59) of_oracle: I can't reproduce 116035. I need further informations.
(15:05:36) VolkerMe: 116035 happened with earlier RCs (RC2 + RC7). I will try again with RC9 as available.
(15:06:14) mla: mechtilde: I know :-( I've fixed it already but a new sync is necessary
(15:07:07) mdamboldt: Mechtilde: I hear you. I would love to close the 3.3 release and to address further stoppers candidates in future releases.
(15:09:19) rtimm: mdamboldt: Me too
(15:09:45) _rene_: mdamboldt: +1
(15:09:53) mla: yes, mechtilde is not alone
(15:11:05) _rene_: though if 116339 happens not rarely, it's bad. 116035, well, is windows 2000 security supported by microsoft still? :)
(15:11:49) of_oracle: Microsoft doesn't support W2K any longer.
(15:12:19) of_oracle: We should drop that OS as soon as possible.
(15:12:21) _rene_: there we go.
(15:12:30) _rene_: ack
(15:12:42) _rene_: so no stopper :)
(15:12:53) VolkerMe: :-(
(15:13:45) stefan_b: VolkerMe, as you wrote... An easy workaround for those in desperate need is available.
(15:14:20) VolkerMe: Ok
(15:14:24) mla: Volker: this OS is ~10 years old, even for enterprises IMHO too long ;-)
(15:14:42) VolkerMe: of installed RC9 without problem
(15:15:01) VolkerMe: the issue reporter had rc7
(15:15:09) _rene_: probably because he has that .dll somewhere?
(15:15:09) VolkerMe: I will try again
(15:15:24) _rene_: in any case, it#s not really relevant :)
(15:15:48) _rene_: anyone still using w2k should live with the pain it causes :)
(15:16:48) stefan_b: _rene_ +1. ...and work around the problem or stick with other old times versions.
(15:17:02) VolkerMe: _rene_: Sure they can use Debian instead . ;-)
(15:17:49) _rene_: or use a sane windows version
(15:17:54) VolkerMe: If it is the only one it mustn't block the release, of course.
(15:18:19) _rene_: (well, sane and windows is a contradiction in itself, but I mean at least working and security-supported ;))
(15:18:41) mdamboldt: Ok, so one of the key question is about Issue 116339. There we need some detailed evaluation about the root cause and informations how and when that happens from development.
(15:18:47) IZBot: Presentation DEFECT NEW P2 OOo freezes for minutes on slide change http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=116339
(15:20:26) _rene_: seems somehow cairo-related :)
(15:20:37) _rene_: (i.e. fails if not using cairo)
(15:20:56) kai_a: mdamboldt: I expect to have evaluation results and hopefully a fix for this issue tomorrow latest
(15:20:59) _rene_: (at least according to https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32861#c5, didn't try/verify, at work right now)
(15:21:02) IZBot: bug 32861: LibreOffice-Presentation major/medium NEW Impress hangs part way through slide show
(15:21:32) gibi33 [~email@example.com] entered the room.
(15:22:47) blauwal: 116339 is definetly a bad one. Let's wait for the evaluation before deciding on this one, I would say
(15:25:09) mdamboldt: We should continue upload of RC9, also with signed Windows binaries. Status of 116339 can be tracked via IssueTracker and Mailing list. While testing RC9 we will watch the releases mailing list for further findings to see whether RC9 is the last one or not.
(15:26:10) rtimm: mdamboldt: +1
(15:27:23) Mechtilde: so the win builds will be signed
(15:27:26) Mechtilde: ??
(15:27:40) mdamboldt: Mechtilde: Yes, signing is in progress.
(15:27:42) mla: yes, sounds good
(15:27:46) _rene_: VolkerMe: answered you on the ml :)
(15:30:05) VolkerMe: _rene_: Just read it. But didn't get the sense, sorry.
(15:31:32) VolkerMe: Just got the translation: superfluous
(15:33:28) mdamboldt: Ok, momentarily I would leave the 3.3 status as is for now and to continue RC related communication on the list. (in case there are no further items for today's meeting)
(15:37:00) Mechtilde: please have a look
(15:37:11) Mechtilde: there is a problem with the mirrors
(15:37:16) xHDE left the room.
(15:37:26) Mechtilde: the directory of gwdg.de is empty
(15:38:09) Mechtilde: ftp://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/openoffice/extended/3.3.0rc9/
(15:38:57) mla: then it's in progress and we have to wait
(15:46:45) stefan_b: bye?
(15:47:08) mdamboldt: Just noted that I missed one Issue from mailing list here, it's Issue 116371.
(15:47:13) IZBot: gsl DEFECT NEW P3 PDF-Export: background color of hatching not exported http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=116371
(15:48:13) mdamboldt: Again some analysis from development needs to be done here. So again something to look for further informationsin Issue / on mailing list in point of view to further RCs.
(15:48:21) mdamboldt: Thats all for todays I've.
(15:49:14) _rene_: I think 116371 is far less bad than the impress one
(15:51:17) paveljanik left the room (quit: Quit: This computer has gone to sleep).
(15:51:59) mla: @mechtilde: the first linux build is comig again on gwdg
(15:53:32) mdamboldt: ok, sounds thats all for todays meeting...
(15:56:08) mdamboldt: bye
(15:56:14) mla: bye
