      • [kfischer] Merge new PERL20 and PERL20.1 into PERL15
      • [khall] Update JS4 based on the availability of the format method (from Bug 15662)
      • [kfischer] 'PERL7: Definitions' - point to Terminology instead and note that terminology in the code should follow the default en GUI terminology?
        • [marcelr] Code changes should adhere to naming conventions published elsewhere on the wiki (Patron versus Borrower, etc.)
    • Remove/obsolete/archive coding guidelines
      • [kfischer] 'PERL12: VERSION [Deprecated as of start of 3.12 release cycle] Each module should have a $VERSION variable to preserve progressive levels of compatibility with dependent code.' A bit confusing - should remaining VERSION variables be removed?
        Action from last meeting: Verify if perlcritic complains about missing VERSION and figure out, if we want/can reconfigure it.
        • [mtompset] perlcritic does not complain about missing $VERSION until -2, but since we only perlcritic to -5, there is no need to keep this.
    • Revamp/restructure coding guidelines page
      • [khall] I would like to revamp our guidelines page in the manner of I can start a new page for this which can be voted on at a later date if everyone approves of the idea.
      • [kfischer] Divide coding guidelines into separate pages, for example: frontend, backend, database, and/or by language
