 * Fix LP: #522969 call gmenucache trigger in all nvidia drivers.
 * Upload new fglrx driver compatible with Lucid's xserver.
 * Upload new Nvidia driver with a fix for the fan control bug.
 * Fix link to OpenCL.so library in nvidia-current.
 * Fix LP: #508890 Nautilus crashes when there are multiple XScreens.
 * Add missing link in fglrx which prevented the VA API from working.
 * Further packaging fixes for fglrx committed upstream.
 * Working on the implementation of plymouth's smooth transition in Kdm.
Line 120: Line 128:
 * Away on Wednesday and Thursday for Solution Linux at Canonical booth
 * WI related work:
   * gdm: continue working on setting gdm sound on and off at login. Encountered several pitfalls but on good track now.
 * Non WI related work:
   * UNE:
     * bug triaging
     * Merge outcomers contribution
     * review/setup a list of bug that should be close for beta 2
   * Prepare migration to clutter 1.2 (needed for GNOME 2.30). Needs updated introspection packages which involves work on:
     * clutter 1.2 (update)
     * clutter-gtk 0.10.4 (update)
     * gtk 2.0 (enabling and fix introspection build)
     * atk (enabling introspection)
     * pango (enabling and fix introspection build)
     -> will deliver that by Wednesday (or sooner) in the desktop team ppa
Line 128: Line 152:
Assigned blueprints: All implemented

Done:
 * Bug fixing: apport, cdbs, udisks, policykit-default-privileges, gdm, gnome-settings-daemon, devicekit-disks, udisks, gnome-power-manager, jockey, libatasmart, media-player-info, libgphoto2, poppler, udisks
 * New versions: pm-utils, libgphoto2
 * Release management for Beta-1
 * CD install and upgrade testing
 * Debugged Kubuntu plymouth breakage
 * Job interview

Sponsoring:
 * None this week. I suck.
Line 134: Line 171:
 * Plug'n'Firmware: Worked out with mvo (update-notifier) a concept so that if a firmware-hungry printer (HP LaserJet 1000/1005/1018/1020/P100x/P150x) is connected but the needed firmware file is not installed on the computer hp-plugin (tool for firmware download and installation) is automatically popped up so that the user installs the missing firmware. This is triggered by update-notifier checking UDEV events. Uploaded new HPLIP package containing a wrapper for hp-plugin, so that the firmware installation works also without having Qt installed.
 * Ghostscript: Some code clean-up on the "cups" output device to avoid segfaults in PostScript/PDF error conditions (LP: #534525).
 * foo2zjs: Applied upstream fix to driver wrapper scripts to support custom page sizes via filter command line (LP: #539242), improved Debian patch so that downloaded color profiles and firmware files get installed at the correct place.
 * Answered and triaged printing-related bug reports.

Chris Cheney (ccheney)

Chris Halse Rogers (RAOF)

  • X Stabilisation:
    • Drive through nouveau DDX bugs; all are upstream or awaiting info from reporters
    • Use upstream-testing section from NouveauEvaluation to start a Nouveau troubleshooting page

    • Pull some safe, small fixes from nouveau kernel tree for some small bugs we've filed. After testing the kernel, these will get sent to the kernel team.
    • Poke at Intel GPU hang list. With Sarvatt's help, we're down from more than 50 to 24, and we've identified a kernel patch that got accidentally dropped from the -16 kernel that should fix a large class of these.
    • Start on a patch to make VESA bail when kms is active; if VESA tries to drive a kms screen it results in pretty “blooming” rather than a useful display. Patch works, just requires some more autofoo & checks to ensure it's acceptable upstream.

  • F-Spot
    • Fixed the obnoxious problem where editing would make photos with orientation information mysteriously rotate by 90 degrees. As an added benefit, orientation information is now preserved when saving files.
    • Added the (hopefully!) final polish - handling when files appear in the directory f-spot's watching, and fixing the worst part of bug #175191 by preventing the incorrect timestamps being written to imported files.
    • Triaged some f-spot bugs while I was in the neighbourhood.
  • gnome-keyring-sharp
    • The keyring daemon in 2.30 no longer exports a socket interface, and gnome-keyring-sharp is totally dependent on that socket interface. Bug 536925 tracks this.

    • Poked at upstream, who are not particularly active.
    • There's a partial replacement by an upstream broken by the change on the bug, but that's unlikely to be acceptable to gnome-keyring-sharp upstream.
    • I'll keep prodding upstream & get an acceptable plan of attack

Didier Roche (didrocks)

      • Merge outcomers contribution
      • review/setup a list of bug that should be close for beta 2
    • Prepare migration to clutter 1.2 (needed for GNOME 2.30). Needs updated introspection packages which involves work on:
      • clutter 1.2 (update)
      • clutter-gtk 0.10.4 (update)
      • gtk 2.0 (enabling and fix introspection build)
      • atk (enabling introspection)
