Actions from this meeting

Outstanding actions from last meeting


Partner Update

  • Online Services:
    • libubuntuone, the gtk widgets will get uploaded to lucid this week
      • - dependency for rhythmbox music store plugin and the new U1 config tool.
    • rhythmbox plugin should follow closely behind libubuntuone, but I expect next week.
    • U1 config tool, which replaces the current applet, is still on track to land before feature freeze.
  • DX:
    • Weekly Releases.

    • MeMenu landed in Lucid (with gwibber integration)

    • Large churn in indicator/dbusmenu packages last week, there are known bugs but please don't hesitate to file new ones. We need to smooth this out ASAP.
    • ido (Indicator Disaplay Objects) was uploaded last week, this contains the extra gtk widgets needed by indicators. Currently used for Gwibber integration in the MeMenu and indicator-sound (also due to upload this week).

Release Status


  • please help as you can with bug triaging/fixing
  • Pedro will organize a [bh]ug day
  • since we'll be concentrating on bug fixes, it's not very likely that we can keep this in the default install for lucid; however, revisiting this is a beta-1 work item, so we did not discuss it further in the meeting

Post A3 Mindset

  • switch from feature work to quality work
  • Find and fix the worst bugs
  • Focus on upgrade experience, LTS -> LTS, Karmic -> Lucid

Other Business

  • GNOME updates:
    • 2.29.4 release: totem, totem-pl-parser, gcalctool, brasero, gtksourceview2
    • 2.29.90 release: seahorse-plugins, brasero, vinagre

  • Patch for caching wallpaper(s) resize at startup, still in discussion with upstream
  • Port a patch about grouping windows in mutter
  • package/fix package/review buhugger and quickly-widgets
  • clean UNE stack (netbooklauncher, ubuntu-netbook-default-settings) and hide search for files
  • UNE now get abiword and gnumeric

WI work:

  • g-c-c: WI: "Hide capplet panel choosing the window manager if mutter is running"

(the panel is not really hidden, but a warning when mutter is running is displayed and it's disabling other switchers, as when compiz isn't in the path)

  • Closed WI Audit packages/modules related to runtime parts of the UNE session that may be impacted by installed packages
  • Closed WI fix "search for files" in app menu


  • some unfinished work on compiz and metacity about not showing tooltip on toolbar. Will be ready next week
  • talked with upstream about one ws should hide the ws switcher, but they don't like the idea: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=606966. Still want to port it in metacity for UNE default.

  • testing some bzr new workflow for packaging with merge-upstream (debugging, fix some part with upstream and james_w)

Jonathan Riddell (Riddell)

Ken VanDine (kenvandine)

  • Lots of Gwibber/SFTS work
    • Released 2.29.1
    • Finished off the MeMenu integration

    • Uploaded to universe
  • Updated empathy to 2.29.90
    • Updated libindicate patch to handle timestamps from libindicate
    • Added LP menus for chat windows
  • Packaged ido
  • Updated libubuntuone packaging

Luke Yelavich (TheMuso)


  • Fixed accessible login so that it works more than once, i.e the user logs in, then either switches user, or logs out and back in as another user/the same user. Its a hack right now, but restarting speech-dispatcher only under the gdm accessible login conditions works for now. Speech-dispatcher needs to properly die when gdm/gnome-session die as well.
  • Enabled accessible login for blindness/braille profiles when installing from the live CD.
  • Started debugging why accessible installs using orca do not work in only-ubiquity mode. Will wait till the new at-spi comes out before going much further with this.
  • Updated speech-dispatcher to the latest git snapshot available from my own git tree, which I work on in my own time.
  • Involved with various discussions about the future of gnome-orca, now that the lead developer from Sun has been layed off. Nothing is clear where things will go just yet.


  • Audio bug triaging, bugs in question are against pulseaudio, alsa userspace, and the kernel for hardware enablement.
  • Tested the alsa-plugins a52 plugin with pulse. It still carshes. I hope to try and debug this at some point in the future.
  • Gave Brad Fig from the kernel team, and Conor from the desktop experience team a crash course in how to get hda audio hardware working, so far as the tools to analyze and test are concerned. Writing quirks will come later.
  • With Conor's help, identified the pins that need code written for them to allow the Lenovo IdeaPad U350 to properly mute the internal speakers when headphones are connected. I suspect the same work will need to be done for the microphone input, but I am yet to read the bug in question to see if anybody has responded to my request for testing.

  • Started writing a patch for the above hardware, once node IDs were identified using hda-analyzer, and thanks to a pointer from Daniel T Chen as to how one goes about adding minimal code to the hda drier to fix only one problem.
  • Had discussions with Brad and Conor, as well as the kernel team, about better handling of audio bugs, particularly hda/kernel bugs. Will help Brad flesh out the documentatino a bit in the coming week.

[16:31] <kenvandine> hehe
[16:31] <pitti> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopTeam/Meeting/2010-02-09<<BR>> [16:31] <pitti> everyone safely back home?
[16:32] <pitti> just wanted to say that last week was great!
[16:32] <pitti> (except for the travelling..)
[16:32] * tseliot agrees with pitti
[16:32] <kenvandine> great week!
[16:32] <seb128> indeed!
[16:32] <pitti> TOPIC: Outstanding actions from last meeting
[16:32] <pitti> fortunately, none
[16:32] <tseliot> :-)
[16:32] <pitti> TOPIC: Partner Update
[16:32] <kenvandine> ok
[16:32] <pitti> kenvandine: floor's your's
[16:33] <kenvandine> lots of stuff landed on thursday
[16:33] <kenvandine> thanks so much for the help seb128!
[16:33] <kenvandine> i was glad to have SFTS time :)
[16:33] <kenvandine> there are known bugs
[16:33] <kenvandine> specifically related to dbusmenu and libindicate
[16:33] <kenvandine> but please don't hesitate to file more
[16:33] <kenvandine> it is API breakage, and there is likely going to be more bugs
[16:34] <pitti> at least all the indicators are generally happy again
[16:34] <kenvandine> s/it is/there was/
[16:34] <kenvandine> yeah
[16:34] <pitti> message one was badly damaged
[16:34] <kenvandine> they are getting better today
[16:34] <kenvandine> again, please file bugs...
[16:34] <kenvandine> it should be the last distruptive change from DX :)
[16:34] <pitti> the new input line in status indicator, is that the away message?
[16:34] <kenvandine> hehe... no
[16:35] <kenvandine> that is the SFTS bit
[16:35] <kenvandine> it posts to gwibber
[16:35] <kenvandine> it will become more dynamic, so if you don't use gwibber it will be hidden
[16:35] <pitti> i don't even have that, shouldn't it appear only when you configured it?
[16:35] <pitti> ah, of course you preemt my complaints, sweet :)
[16:35] <kenvandine> yeah... it was the first pass... but we nned to fix that :)
[16:36] <kenvandine> OLS
[16:36] <kenvandine> they have libubuntuone to land in lucid this week
[16:36] <kenvandine> i am just waiting for a new release and i will look for sponsors
[16:36] <jcastro> qense: can you please blog about your work on transmission? it's awesome.
[16:36] <kenvandine> it is needed for the rb plugin as well as the U1 applet replacement
[16:36] <jcastro> qense: also, include a screenshot. :D
[16:37] <kenvandine> jcastro, meeting :)
[16:37] <jcastro> bah, sorry!
[16:37] <qense> jcastro: good idea, I'll do it!
[16:37] <kenvandine> those are still on schedule to land before feature freeze
[16:37] <kenvandine> that is it for the partner update, questions?
[16:38] <pitti> kenvandine: so RB will land on time?
[16:38] <pitti> it's getting a bit tight
[16:38] <kenvandine> supposedly
[16:38] <pitti> ok, thanks Ken!
[16:38] <pitti> [TOPIC] Kubuntu Update
[16:38] <pitti> Riddell: what's new on the KDE front?
[16:39] <pitti> skipping
[16:39] <pitti> [TOPIC] pitivi
[16:39] <pitti> rickspencer3 put that on the table
[16:40] <pitti> seb128: any idea about the contents, except for "if you have spare cycles, help with bug triage/fixing"?
[16:40] <rickspencer3> pedro_, and seb128 discussed a bit this morning about that
[16:40] <seb128> pitti, I think Riddell is on VAC this week
[16:40] <rickspencer3> pitti, yes, especially community members who are looking for a way to help
[16:40] <seb128> pitti, not really but pedro will set a bug day
[16:40] <rickspencer3> helping pitivi team would be appreciated
[16:41] <pitti> python-gudev is packaged now, so that unblocked their migration away from hal
[16:41] <pitti> is it still on the table to keep it in lucid by default?
[16:42] <pitti> Admittedly I have no idea about it's status and quality
[16:42] <pitti> well, we said we'd review it at beta-1 time, so let's defer that question, shall we?
[16:42] <kenvandine> rickspencer3, btw the problems i was having with pitivi isn't really pitivi's fault... it is recordmydesktop
[16:43] <rickspencer3> pitti, well, it won't be ready no one attends to bugs and such
[16:43] <rickspencer3> and I would like it to be ready ;)
[16:43] <rickspencer3> that's all
[16:43] <rickspencer3> kenvandine, understood, thanks
[16:43] * rickspencer3 afk
[16:43] <seb128> ETOOMUCHTODO
[16:44] <pitti> which brings us directly to...
[16:44] <seb128> ie we have ton of things which need work and bug fixing and we are getting late
[16:44] <pitti> [TOPIC] post-A3 planning
[16:44] <seb128> I can see packages that need work before pitivi
[16:44] <seb128> ie gpm
[16:44] <pitti> so after we did the rush of new features, boot speed, etc. by alpha-3, we need to switch full speed to fixing what we have
[16:44] <pitti> and stop introducing new things and bugs
[16:45] <pitti> I'll review the list of specs that we have left, and see what we can drop for lucid
[16:45] <pitti> (with rickspencer3 and robbie)
[16:45] <pitti> we'll review that in next week's meeting
[16:45] <bryceh> pitti, I got some more work assigned at the sprint
[16:45] <pitti> bryceh: the ruthless X bits?
[16:45] <bryceh> pitti, I'll try to get specs in for that work today
[16:46] <tseliot> heh
[16:46] <bryceh> pitti, that's one
[16:46] <pitti> bryceh: appreciated, so that we can milestone/WI it
[16:46] <pitti> http://people.canonical.com/~pitti/workitems/canonical-desktop-team-lucid-alpha-3.html<<BR>> [16:46] <pitti> we are generally doing quite well, but it seems we need to drop some bits; we're running over
[16:47] <asac> 17:26 < fta2> asac, plz reject the merge from mvo, the control file is bogus
[16:47] <pitti> tseliot: are there by any chance some WIs from xorg-prop-drivers which are done, but not marked as such yet?
[16:47] <asac> mvo:
[16:47] <asac> seems you committed merge conflicts
[16:47] <pitti> asac: (meeting in progress)
[16:47] <asac> oops
[16:47] <asac> sry
[16:47] <tseliot> let me check
[16:48] <pitti> kenvandine, tseliot, and bryceh currently top the list of open WIs
[16:48] <pitti> which maps to
[16:48] <kenvandine> pitti, most of the SFTS ones are targets of opportunity
[16:48] <pitti> https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/desktop-lucid-xorg-triaging-diagnosis<<BR>> [16:48] <bryceh> oh I have several nouveau wi's I completed yesterday
[16:48] <kenvandine> so easy to drop
[16:48] <pitti> https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/desktop-lucid-social-from-the-start<<BR>> [16:48] <pitti> https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/desktop-lucid-xorg-proprietary-drivers<<BR>> [16:48] <bryceh> sadly I'll still be toping the list once the new specs get added
[16:48] <pitti> kenvandine: right, I was going to suggest that
[16:49] <pitti> kenvandine: as long as it's in a consistent state
[16:49] <kenvandine> but i think it is safe to wait to de-scope those, since we already defined the ones that are easiest to drop
[16:49] <kenvandine> right?
[16:49] <pitti> kenvandine: since you know better which ones need to go together, would you mind moving the optional ones out of alpha-3?
[16:49] <tseliot> pitti: yes, there are a few things which I completed already
[16:49] <pitti> kenvandine: well, I'd rather have them moved out to general "lucid" now, so that we can see where we stand
[16:50] <kenvandine> humm... they shouldn't be listed, they don't have a "work items:" above them
[16:50] <tseliot> pitti: there's not a task about the new boot theme I'm supposed to work on though
[16:50] <kenvandine> oh, the ones targetted for alpha-3 are in good shape
[16:50] <kenvandine> almost done in fact
[16:51] <kenvandine> nm, those should all get completed real soon
[16:51] <pitti> tseliot: oh, which BP does that come from?
[16:52] <pitti> seb128: can we agree that the two remaining WIs on desktop-lucid-compiz-effects are crackful and better be dropped for good? (wrt. messing with configuration)
[16:52] <pitti> seb128: (I'll take the bullets)
[16:52] <seb128> pitti, rick disagreed on that, can we have this discussion after meeting when he's back?
[16:52] <seb128> fine with me
[16:52] <pitti> seb128: ok, I'll discuss with him tomorrow then
[16:52] <seb128> I think it's crackful too
[16:53] <tseliot> pitti: this one: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/foundations-lucid-boot-experience<<BR>> [16:53] <seb128> I will get the nm-applet one uploaded this week
[16:53] <seb128> will try to get upstream to comment on it
[16:53] <seb128> then we are mostly done for bootspeed items I guess
[16:54] <seb128> still the wallpaper one remaining
[16:54] <pitti> tseliot: oh, it's all "DONE" there; if there's something outstanding, please add work items under "work items (lucid-alpha-3):"
[16:54] <pitti> seb128: right; any additional wisdom/status about boot speed from you?
[16:54] <seb128> not this week no
[16:55] <seb128> I'm out of mini and didn't have time for that since the sprint
[16:55] <pitti> bryceh: seems that the WIs of you that could most easily be deferred are the bug triaging scripts
[16:55] <desrt> alpha 2 is difficult to install!
[16:55] <tseliot> pitti: I should add a task in that blueprint too, I guess
[16:55] <pitti> bryceh: althought it seems to me that an investment in those might be a huge time-saver in the long run?
[16:55] <bryceh> pitti, that's correct
[16:56] <pitti> bryceh: the two WIs from the other specs seem easy to do
[16:56] <pitti> bryceh: http://people.canonical.com/~pitti/workitems/canonical-desktop-team-lucid-alpha-3.html#bryceharrington I mean
[16:56] <bryceh> yeah
[16:57] <pitti> bryceh: so perhaps do the high-prio ones first, and work on improving the bug scraping in the remaining time?
[16:57] <bryceh> actually most of the bug triaging tasks are not difficult, I've just been prioritizing other WIs ahead of them as they involve components that go into the distro
[16:57] <bryceh> pitti, yep, that's the plan
[16:58] <pitti> tseliot: ok, let's see how much of your's remain after you close the ones that are done; what's your feeling, do you think you can make your's for alpha-3, or do we need to cut?
[16:59] <seb128> pitti, you can probably postpone the 2 gnome-panel wis from robert_ancell...
[17:00] <pitti> :(
[17:00] <pitti> ok
[17:00] <tseliot> pitti: I don't think I can deal with all of them. Some cuts will definitely be required. I can send you an email about it
[17:00] <pitti> tseliot: appreciated, thanks
[17:00] <seb128> pitti, well maybe check with him but I don't see that happening before alpha3 now
[17:00] <seb128> pitti, it requires some non trivial work and architectural changes
[17:01] <seb128> kenvandine, do we still have gtk changes schedules for alpha3?
[17:01] <kenvandine> maybe
[17:01] <seb128> kenvandine, you have a "integrate patches in the gtk package" work item
[17:02] <kenvandine> we are still waiting
[17:02] <seb128> I was not sure if that was rgba which got delayed to next cycle
[17:02] <pitti> seb128: done
[17:02] <seb128> kenvandine, ok thanks
[17:02] <pitti> does anyone else have some trouble or remarks with his WIs?
[17:03] <didrocks> pitti: the two WI added on my plate by the Mobile team will be review in a call tomorrow
[17:03] <pitti> good, seems that's on track now
[17:03] <pitti> TOPIC: AOB
[17:04] <pitti> 20 seconds
[17:04] <seb128> 10 seconds? ;-)
[17:04] <pitti> [END MEETING]
