+- intrigeri:
+ - this week: whatever I have to do to make 3.3 exist as a good Tails release;
+ - next week: OTF summit.

+- spriver:
+ - Definitely will do some German translation and the usual release
+ testing.

+- sajolida:
+ - Finish the work on the new download page and verification extension; hopefully... somehow...
+ - Do fun UX stuff as I'm under-clocked on this budget line (breaking news: under-clocking happens!)

+ - Prepare the VeraCrypt UX sprint in December

+# Tickets flagged for Discussions in the blueprint
+There are no such tickets.
+# Other tickets
+## [[!tails_ticket 14808 desc="OpenPGP Applet should display long keyid (or even only FP)"]]
+### Problem description:
+Currently OpenPGP applet show hex key id (short) in pub key selection.
+The Fingerprints are shown as mouse-over. The mouse-over will probably
+go in the not to distant future.
+### Discussion summary:
+- It's not used for key verification, only disambiguation.
+- user should not rely on id for verification (any id).
+- seahorse-tool show short key id
+- Fingerprint here would be confusing.
+### Decision:
+Since seahorse-tool show short key id, we should stick with that, or,
+preferably, display no id at all. Then we would show the key creation
+date for disambiguation.
+## [[!tails_ticket 6387 desc="Create screencast videos of installing Tails onto a USB stick"]]
+### Problem description:
+Comment #18 on the ticket. In short: do we really want this, seeing that
+it's not easy to do correctly ?
+### Discussion summary:
+- we don't have the manpower / skills to do that ourselves and maintain
+ such screencasts (not even talking about making it translatable)
+- we can rely on other people work, like the video from
+ Infosec/Bytes/CIJ:
+- it could be useful for some stuff, for instance the FAT32 vs
+ NTFS problems
+### Decision:
+Reject this ticket. We acknowledge that such videos could be useful, but
+we can't maintain them ourselves
