             1. bug#697834 - gnome-menus - Other menu appears in default
                installation (any .desktop entry with Category=Settings
                ends up here (even if there's also Category=System))
                      * Unclear what this needs to move forward, jlaska
                        will reach out to mclasen for guidance
                      * AdamW researching and testing a patch to resolve
                        the issue
             2. bug#693809 - imsettings - Error message about missing
                input methods should be removed
                      * Waiting to hear back from tagoh to respond to
                        caillon feedback.
                      * jlaska will reach out to caillon to confirm that
                        recent comments are still inline with original
                        bug report
             3. bug#702650 - plymouth - Concurrency problem when
                unlocking partition
                      * kparal retesting and plans to reach out to test@
                        for feedback
                      * halfline is on PTO, lennart said he would
                        provide feedback in his absence

TOPIC: AutoQA update
      * AutoQA trac milestones have been changed to reflect the new
        topic for 0.5.0 release - making AutoQA results more
        user-friendly (for package-maintainers).
      * We held a meeting where we discussed different approaches
        related to 0.5.0 milestone. tflink was kind enough to create a
        record of it:
      * We agreed to substantially lower the number of emails that are
        currently sent to package maintainers through Bodhi comments. We
        will also improve the structure and contents of the test log -
        it will be specific to a particular update, it won't contain
        many other updates any more. Every test will be documented on
        Fedora wiki and the most information will be provided there.
      * We tackled a problem with too low disk space on AutoQA server
        that resulted in massive deletion of very recent logs. And we
        will continue to work on it. The problem was caused by some
        stuck-in-a-loop tests that generated many GBs of test logs.
      * jlaska reported that the quick changes made on Friday
        dramatically reduced the size of depcheck test logs on the
        autoqa server.  Special thanks to smooge for providing
        additional disk space for our guest
