    Present: Jay, Eric, Tomaz, Stuart, Heiko
    * LibO mascot
    + Competition finishing today
    * So far 270 valid contributions
    + First voting phase coming up
    * Use direct formatting and character style in ToC
    + Limitation unclear, e.g. font size?
    + Scope unclear, alphabetical index, figures, tables...
    + implementation issues to pick single properties and not use font size, for example (Stuart, Jay)
    + Take all properties (Heiko)
    + running into trouble with direct formattings (Stuart)
    + font size can be relative; ToC should stay plain (Eric)
    + optionally, all properties excluding font size (Jay)
    + likely not possible to modify the ToC (clear direct formatting) (Jay)
    + compatibility with Windows not paramount here (Stuart)
    => keep ticket open
    * Menu organization: move Compare and Merge Documents into Edit
    + Track changes is different to document operations (Eric, Heiko)
    + Both are related (Jay, Stuart)
    + Not enough space in edit menu (Jay)
    + Benjamin's wouldn't look for this function so root of menu is not needed (Stuart)
    => WF
    * New Tango icons
    + glossy or not
    => no glossyness (Jay)
    => Andreas: please make the icons plain
    * Default spacing at columns
    + depending on font between 3-5mm - so 0.04cm (Regina)
    + Word uses 0.5in/1.27cm, Calligra: 0.6cm, WPS: 0.75cm or two characters
    => agreed on 0.6cm
