[17:02:34] <jaheikki3> Time to start qt release meeting 
[17:02:42] <fregl> hello
[17:02:49] <akseli> jaheikki3: pong
[17:03:05] <jaheikki3> on agenda today:
[17:03:11] <jaheikki3> Qt 5.8.0 release status 
[17:03:16] <fkleint> jaheikki3: pong
[17:03:21] <jaheikki3> Any additional item to the agenda?
[17:04:41] <jaheikki3> ok, let's browse through the release status
[17:04:54] <jaheikki3> New set of packages under testing
[17:05:20] <jaheikki3> unfortunately couple of new blocker proposals reported :(
[17:05:40] <jaheikki3> https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-58227 and https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-58225
[17:06:06] <jaheikki3> Discussion still ongoing if we need to fix those for 5.8.0 or not
[17:06:39] <jaheikki3> Current target to get release out is Mon 23rd january
[17:06:54] <jaheikki3> Should be possible even we need to fix the issues above
[17:07:24] <jaheikki3> Any comments / questions?
[17:07:43] <thiago> both sound like minor regressions
[17:07:53] <thiago> I'm concerned about the font one that showed up after the RC
[17:08:05] <thiago> looks like a fix is known, so it should be applied
[17:08:21] <carewolf> assuming it doesn't regress the issue that was fixed after the RC
[17:08:22] <fkleint> for the winmax thing, yes, a simple fix
[17:08:31] <carewolf> it needs a chinese windows to test though
[17:09:12] <fkleint> Ah,ok , for fonts as well..
[17:10:07] <jaheikki3> Yeah, we have fixes available for both and I think we should take both in if we will update the packages once again
[17:10:47] <jaheikki3> But then we should be ready for the release. hoping we can get font fix verified soon so that we can start re-creating the packages
[17:11:04] <thiago> yup
[17:12:12] <jaheikki3> Ok, thats all at this time. Let's get the release finally out & skip next week's meeting & have new on Tue 31st January. Ok?
[17:12:23] <fkleint> ok
[17:12:36] <thiago> ok
[17:13:00] <jaheikki3> Great! Thanks for your participation. bye!
[17:13:14] <ankokko_> bye
