    + Reopening a ticket needs four-eye based decision
    (We had in the past some situations where a closed ticket was reopend rather for personal reasons. The suggestion is to get another opinion in cases where a decision was made. So please just comment closed tickets and do not reopen until someone else agrees with you. The same for reopened ticket, have a second opinion or better we discuss the topic at the meeting.)
    * Major release update / branding for 6.0
    + Cube variants is the preferred design
    + Will try to professionalize it (Heiko)
    * Guest contribution on the design blog?
    + -> c12
    -> Agreement on the idea
    * Removal of Format > Column entry
    + Pro: Available in Format > Page and Format > Sections
    + Con: Apply to text selection missing; going with Insert > Section, Format > Section > Option is tedious
    + Users likely expect a simple columnize option
    + General approach what dialogs are subsummized under others and what not missing
    + Aim is to remove redundancy and shrink the menu (Jay)
    + Similar to watermark which is not an extra dialog but part of page settings (Jay)
    + We better wait with the patch until we have a split/menu button that offers quick access at toolbar/sidebar (Heiko)
    + Also consider to add/change presets in the columns dialog so the user can define the quick access options
    + We have a split button like this in the Insert toolbar (Jay)
