          ourselves
 
* Questions for Kendy (Jay)

    + Is it possible to send function arguments through an UNO command like heiko suggested?
      https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=90882
        + not possible to pass parameters from the toolbar (Kendy)
    + Which context menu does svx/source/form/formshell.src appear in?
      https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=86606
        + something in Calc, but cannot find it quickly :-( - please ping moggi (Kendy)
 
* How autofilter should work (Mattias, Heiko)
 
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=63416
      Should it be "smart" and try to guess about header fields (and possibly sometimes fail)
      or should it be always consistent and just assume the first row is the header (as MSO does it)

      + sorting is also affected by auto filter
      + check the competitor's solutions (Jay)
        -> define test scenario first
           - what happens when autofilter buttons are placed in the middle of data rows
           - what happens when autofiltered data (some rows hidden) is sorted (using usual sorting tool)
           - what happens when you try to filter the autofilter row out (if it's treated as data, not in MSO)
      + consider to ask the community in case of more than one good solutions (Heiko)
      + mimic the bevahior of Microsoft Excel if there isn't better (Ibrahim)

    + conclusion in:
