Reminders

+ 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.)

Organization

* Major release update / branding for 6.0
+ https://design.blog.documentfoundation.org/2017/06/16/motif-next-release-prefer/
+ Cube variants is the preferred design
+ Will try to professionalize it (Heiko)

* Guest contribution on the design blog?
+ https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59611 -> c12
-> Agreement on the idea

Tickets

* Removal of Format > Column entry
+ https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/39017/
+ 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)
