Outstanding actions from last meeting

  • Martin to upload current PPA langpacks to hardy/intrepid-proposed -- deferred; there was a langpack-o-matic bug which broke KDE translation, which Martin fixed, and we were waiting for a new Rosetta export to get full KDE translations; ETA tomorrow
  • Jonathan to track down who is working on bug #290695, set assignee, and clarify status -- nobody is working on it, he will look into it himself

Actions from this meeting

  • Everyone to think about what they would like to work on in Jaundy; we will discuss UDS preparations in next week's meeting.

Bryce Harrington (bryce)


  • Worked on assigned bugs, updated todo lists
  • Reviewed -intel quirks.
    • Filed Hardy SRU for the 8xx pipea quirk, which has been sufficiently well tested now.
  • Catch up on xorg, debian-x, etc. mailing lists
  • Upstreamed 190857, 291053, 291045, 291040, 270690, 291055, 268853
  • Triaged 500 new bugs across various xorg packages. Resulted in being able to close several score as fixed, or invalid due to unavailable hardware.
  • Sponsor queue 1 hr (mainly just cleanup/review)

Assigned release targeted bugs:

  • 284346 "Fix dithering" [Fix Committed]. Cherrypicked patches from upstream for this, packaged, tested, and submitted as SRU.
  • 274234 "CD_INVALID_OPCODE" [Fix Committed]. Fix for 284346 should also fix this one.
  • 278318 "video tearing". Not targeted, but regression worth review, that can probably be easily addressed by adding an xorg.conf option.
