        + encouraging spirit, interesting conference (Heiko)
    * Table styles (Kendy)
        + core functionality now implemented & pushed to master (Kendy)
            + when an table AutoFormat is applied, it keeps updating the table (Kendy)
            + missing pieces: import/export, better UI (Kendy)
        + would be good to have a Friday session about that (Kendy)
            + already collected stuff in a doc (Jay)
            + let's try 9th October (Kendy)
    * Bug discussions
        + NAVIGATOR: Reverse the behaviour of the page number control

        + problem that there is a spin button, and pushing the 'up' arrow actually does PgDown
            + proposal: change to input field + have PgUp and PgDown buttons there (Heiko)
                + like [down] [input-line-with-the-number [up] (Heiko)
                + would slightly prefer [up] and [down] close to each other so that you don't
                  have to travel with the mouse too much when you touch it one more
                  time than desired ;-) (Kendy)
                + already quite many buttons there :-( (Jay)
                + we shouldn't change the meaning of the buttons - in Gtk3 they are presented
                  as [+] and [-], we would change the meaning there (Kendy)
                     + so either we should have own buttons there (Heiko's proposal),
                       or let it be (Kendy)
            + conclusion: Let it be for now (wontfix)
        + actually it turns out there are many inconsistencies & bugs in the navigation panel
            + sometimes the view is changed, sometimes the cursor position
            + the spinfield is not updated when changing the position in the document
            + etc.
            + and it looks too packed at the top, and empty at the bottom
            + have a proposal with better layout (Jay)
                + looks like a good topic for one of the Friday session? (Kendy)

        + new release? (Kendy)
