New Action Items


   +Prioritized Bugs
       -AGREE: Somehow being able to determine what bugs have been prioritized by QA is a good thing
       -A lot of discussion about using QA field or new whiteboard status – pros and cons discussed
       -Lead to discussion about what QA contact means, some disagreement and acknowledging pros/cons of different ideas
       -AGREED: Move conversation back to mailing list to try to find best solution, aim to have final vote next meeting.
       -ACTION: Joel will start thread back up from Rainer's previous thread.
   +Verified – WORKSFORME
       -AGREED: Makes a lot of sense to have this, original reporter can confirm that a bug indeed WFM by setting status to VERIFIED – WORKSFORME
       -AGREED: If QA member sets bug to WFM they should leave a comment explaining that if reporter can verify to change status, if they cannot, to reopen as UNCONFIRMED
       -Using signature could be good if it invites users to contribute to LibreOffice through multiple avenues such as QA, marketing, developing, and explains that run by a team of volunteers. Also a pointer to good bug reporting (reproducible steps, good prioritizing)


   +New wiki page to track QA projects
       - QA Projects
       -Everyone welcometo add projects, idea is that if someone leaves QA, their projects will continue for others to work on
   +Team Page
       - QA/QA Team
       -Everyone who wishes to be included in “QA Team” should add name to this list
