For example bug 356264 is widely reported, but not targeted. ACTION: rickspencer3 to get list of critical bugs from bryce, follow up with release team to get correct bugs tracked.

Martin Pitt (pitti)

Assigned blueprints: all implemented

Currently open stable/milestoned bugs:

  • 264336 (pgsql fails to start due to shared buffer setting greater than kernel allows): hard to reproduce, started discussion upstream; looks like wontfix for jaunty

  • 344688 (New PostgreSQL bug fix microreleases: 8.3.7, 8.1.17): in -proposed

Non-chores stuff done:

  • finishing touches on the apport launchpadlib branch, and sorted out remaining ronne firewall issues with IS; switched ronne's appor retracers to launchpadlib after p-lp-bugs broke once again with the new Launchpad rollout
  • above has uncovered a few bugs in launchpadlib; filed, and sufficiently worked around in apport
  • fixed langpack-o-matic to support extra Recommends: packages on language-pack-*; quick hack for #352036 until we get a good long-term solution in Soyuz
  • lots of debugging and bug fixing, primarily on my assigned RC bugs
  • Spent a couple of hours debugging X.org -intel bugs with upstream and testing a few patches; unfortunately this did not yield something truly working yet

Sponsoring:

  • gnome-system-tools, system-config-printer

Robert Ancell (robert_ancell)

  • First week working from home. General triaging and reading of existing bug reports in packages.

Sebastien Bacher (seb128)

issue with gnome-session restarting in it loop when no background is displayed for example, set no action for autorun since those are mostly not working under linux

  • backported some rhythmbox svn changes

  • triaged gvfs and nautilus issue, did some svn snapshot to give some

testing to all the bug fixes that landed there recently, updated to 2.26.1 tarballs rolled later

multimedia keys are used, the player track changes are enough and those were displayed when no player is running which is confusing

changes, decided to drop the change for jaunty since it creates some issues, we will investigate on that next cycle

  • lot of desktop bugs triage

totem-pl-parser tracker gnome-nettool gtk2-engines-murrine gdm gnome-keyring rhythmbox evolution-indicator tracker glade3
