2 Round table

2.1 Better access to bitmaps in the whole source tree

We agreed, that the current structure of the bitmaps is (especially for non-Sun developer) very hard to overview and to maintain. We discussed several possible tools and structures and OS will make a proposal for an improved tooling.

Right now it seems, that we can combine our traditional way with cvs and a new one with a tooling or frontend, which provides an access without the need of knowing the internal structures and naming conventions.

2.2 Real-time-change from normal to High Contrast (HC) and back

In general a change to HC color scheeme or back should be handled immediately from all elements in the Office. But this is not a must, if the effort is to high to achieve this. It's also ok to handle this initially and to implement the real-time part later with a lower priority.

2.3 PDF export

MMP will soon publish a draft for the PDF export feature.
