Outstanding actions from last meeting

Actions from this meeting

Activity reports

Jonathan Riddell (Riddell)

done:

  • enabled compositing in KDE 4, using same blacklist as compiz
  • enabled apport in KDE 4
  • implement laptop keys for KDE 4 in kmix and guidance-power-manager
  • Package Qt 4.4.1
  • discuss qbzr packaging with the guy who had package in PPA, suggest some fixes and upload to ubuntu
  • testing new Adept
  • archive administration 1/2 day
  • couple of days working on system-config-printer-kde, got it into a state where it should be useful, plenty more to do

blocked:

  • compiz patch to split out wrapper script needs review
  • plasmoid-quickaccess MIR
  • openbabel MIR
  • libzip MIR (coming on for two months this one, what do I have to do?)

todo:

  • at Akademy next week

no milestoned bugs

Kenneth Wimer (kwwii)

On leave.

Martin Pitt (pitti)

Assigned Intrepid specs:

  • intrepid-device-permissions: Fixed libpam-ck-connector to work by default in PAM common-session; now it needs to be auto-added to PAM config on installation; slangasek says I should use pam-config-framework for that, which isn't ready yet; thus BLOCKED
  • gdm-guest-account: More or less implemented now, spec has release note and test case sections now; just needs some bug fixing now
  • jockey-printer-driver-support: backend is fully capable of searching for drivers on openprinting.org; needs some remaining frontend work now; didn't get to much work on this spec this week; big problem is that upstream probably won't add the system-config-printer changes in time for intrepid, so the really really nice integration might slip to the next release Sad :( (it's still useful to search/install drivers from the jockey UI)

Currently open milestoned bugs:

  • got them all fixed this week

Other non-chores work done:

  • got the apport retracers back into working order again
  • apport enabled by default again now
  • apport now catches kernel crash dumps and turns them into reports
  • did a few updated merges

Matthew Paul Thomas (mpt)

Michael Vogt (mvo)

update-manager:

  • work on the kvm auto-upgrade tester, trying to figure out why intrepid kvm is *slow* (~30kb) in the network speed (that used to be ~600kb or more), qemu is fine on the same image. no success, filed bug
  • trap ctrl-c in the terminal and ask if the user really wants to perform this action (windows users think that ctrl-c is copy, #90866)

synaptic:

  • demoting apt-xapian-index to a suggests because we don't have CD space and a policy that all recommends must be on the CD. No search-as-you-type anymore
  • trap ctrl-c in the terminal
  • debug/fix long standing unref error in gtkpkglist.cc that is mostly harmless bug gives a gtk-critical message (#38397)
  • implement https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackageSupportednessUIHardy and push that into http://code.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-core-dev/synaptic/hardy

  • work on improvements for the archive-reorganization (mostly by working on better debtags support, lp:~mvo/synaptic/ept)

python-apt:

  • Add "key in apt.Cache" (LP: #251587)
  • Fix bug in python-apt "SetCandidateVer/GetCandidateVer" (#237372)

  • Fix cwd problem in apt_inst.debExtractArchive() (#184093)
  • new version uploaded

apt:

  • fix broken apport report writing (under some circumstances, thanks to mdz for the report)
  • make -Wall a bit more happy
  • merge apt devel branch into ubuntu and upload new version
  • Implement build-deps as automatic dependencies (#248268)

compiz:

  • discuss compiz hang (#961) with upstream (problem with xunion/xdamage in the compiz damage handler)

SRU:

  • Add sru instructions for #249220 (anacron)
  • Add sru verification instracutions for #55172 (gksu)
  • new libgksu2.0-0 for hardy proposed (#55172)

sandbox-upgrader:

  • making good progress, fixed various bugs
  • Debug sandbox-upgrader failure of dholbach, turned out to be a regression in hardy-prposed, reported and uploaded fix, see #254966
  • add code to generate simple test environment to improve testing turnaround

packagekit:

  • looked into packagekit git
  • implemented missing doUpdatePackages
  • improved the behavior for conffile (send a backend.Message() up about them and default to "keep")
  • add terminal timeout, ie kill (ctrl-c) maintainer scripts that do nothing for more than 10 minutes (not in git yet, need to figure out how to upload my branch *sigh*)

misc:

  • bug triage
  • sponsoring queue
  • work on improvements on the translated package description import scripts (with Sianis)
  • report "glade-3 eats my glade-2 .glade files" problem upstream (#545843), no reply so far
  • merge/review the kde4 gdebi port (thanks riddell!), fix some smallish pty releated issues
  • app-install-data-update and review
  • a bit of work on the conflictschecker (trying to figure out why it is choking on some packages)
  • Discuss spec for better display of the support status with mpt
  • add terminal timeout detection into gdebi (#252632) and upload new version with kde4
  • Look into the new launchpad API
  • kick the popcon server to generate data again, looks like it needs harder kicking, still not generating, needs more poking

login-experience/gdm-face-browser:

  • started working on GdmGreeterClient and GdmGreeterSession class to get a working base for the graphical-greeter, but it's more work than anticipated and therefore not done yet
