        + Is that issue for the Navigator too (I dont read it from the issue)
          and in Writer the choice anycase was to allow opening separate too. (Cor, after discussion on 20150128)
            + the bug report only discusses the separate formulas sidebar in calc (Jay)

    + Sifr updates (Matthias)
    + show only extensions we are able to insert (Bubli)

* UI Guidelines (Heiko)
    + should add information how to create new widgets (Heiko)
    + would be good to have Friday session about this (Heiko)
        + so that we can have the functional & visual parts there (Heiko)
    + generally UI guidelines should be kept simple to avoid the stagation
      that more detailed documents get (Ken)
* Icon Updates / Issues

    + Shouldn't the icons in the Start Center always be the TDF/LibreOffice official "Branding" icons
      regardless of the icon theme? (Pedro)
AI      + best to agree with Marketing - if the app icons should have the status of logos (Kendy)

        + pushed new icons for Calc (Jay)

* How best to provide kendy with a list of needDevEval (Jay)
    + Should I include it in the UI/UX priorty list google doc? (Jay)
        + sounds good (Kendy)
        + will bring it to the ESC to find more interested people who can provide code pointers (Kendy)
            + ~10 is enough for now
* Artwork for LibreOffice 5.0 call for proposals (Stuart/Kendy)
    + Added the 5.0 Branding artwork call for proposals (Stuart)
        + it is a bit thin, so feel free to hack at it.
        + need some crafting on the Whiteboard as to scope of 5.0 branding proposals, e.g.
          + visual design (color scheme, icons)
          + StartCenter specifics (changes to layout--yes/no--)
          + placment or size of thumbnail views/template views
    + already some responses to posts to Users and Design MLs

    + needed: splash, startcenter graphics, about

    + reached to some people we know (Heiko, Jay)
    + now to spread the word more
AI      + sync with marketing (Kendy)
* Shapes Sidebar (Heiko/Jay)
    + Blog posted -
    + additional reaction under the blogpost
         + don't forget the connector shapes
         + another +1's for accordion
    + topic closed :-)
* Insert Chart (Heiko/Jay)

    + somebody asked why a dialog when we have a sidebar?
        + could be that click in the toolbar just adds the chart that would be tweaked in sidebar
        + but the dialog is needed because of data in Writer
    + blogpost pending, will be out tomorrow
    + should we present both 2 proposals, or agree on one only?
        + problem that these use a different approaches to the UX (Heiko)
        + the main thing (for me) is to attract a developer who'd like to implement that, so
          presenting both works for me (Kendy)
        + conclusion: yes
* Next Friday's design session (Jay)
    + 12pm UTC
    + Continue with last friday's insert chart discussion as it hasnt been completed
    + List of possible future topics
    + Topic: Style guide
        + general view would be good (Kendy)
            + like, where we want to rely on other guidelines, and what we want to design / decide
              ourselves (Kendy)
* UX advise bugs in bugzilla (Stuart) (336 [-2] bugs in ux-advice today)
    + everyone please feel empowered to look at that + act: reject, implement, decide, or bring to
      the meeting or mailing list if controversial
    + please be kind when closing requests, usually people have spent quite some energy filing that
* Sidebar open in Draw by default (Jay)
