  • c2050: Fixed/updated the dependencies, added apport hook.
  • Note that the above-mentioned packages got only prepared, not uploaded, due to the beta freeze.
  • Answered and triaged printing-related bug reports.

[17:36] <kenvandine> any questions?
[17:36] <kenvandine> comments?
[17:36] <kenvandine> Riddell, is U1 working ok in kubuntu? did those issues get addressed?
[17:37] <Riddell> kenvandine: a whole new issue happened with another rewrite of ubuntu-sso
[17:37] <Riddell> apachelogger has written a KDE frontend to it but it needs kwallet support still
[17:37] <kenvandine> ok
[17:37] <kenvandine> sigh...
[17:38] <kenvandine> ok, well moving on i guess Smile :)
[17:38] * kenvandine hands mic back to seb128
[17:38] <Riddell> online services needs to learn how to work with the community really
[17:38] <seb128> thanks kenvandine
[17:39] <seb128> Riddell, was there any interaction between them and the kubuntu team this cycle?
[17:39] <kenvandine> Riddell, i'll bring that up with them
[17:39] <Riddell> seb128: no, only bits here and there when apachelogger asked. they don't even have a mailing list as far as I know
[17:39] <seb128> ok, something to improve next cycle
[17:39] <kenvandine> yeah, i'll raise that
[17:39] <seb128> dx is better nowadays than ols for that
[17:40] <kenvandine> we can make that better
[17:40] <seb128> ok, let's move on
[17:40] <seb128> we can but not today there Wink ;-)
[17:40] <seb128> Riddell, since you are there, kubuntu update?
[17:40] <Riddell> - ubiquity was troublesome but evan stayed up late to fix bugs, but I suspect there's some more bugs to iron out yet
[17:40] <Riddell> - kdebindings and rdepends building on ARM now, am hopeful for images ready for beta
[17:40] <Riddell> - KDE SC 4.5.1 out today, will upload after beta
[17:40] <Riddell> - mpris 2 support got into Amarok thanks to Aurelien
[17:40] <Riddell> - http://tinyurl.com/33p7vu3 5 milestoned bugs, hopefully 2 are fixed already, probably more to come after beta
[17:41] <seb128> quite short list of milestone bugs Wink ;-)
[17:41] <rodrigo_> Riddell, seb128: we have talked with apachelogger about the changes
[17:41] <Riddell> seb128: it'll grow I'm sure
[17:41] <rodrigo_> he knows at least since 2/3 weeks ago
[17:42] <rodrigo_> and we have a mailing list -> ubuntuone-users@
[17:42] <seb128> rodrigo_, ok
[17:42] <seb128> let's discuss that after the meeting maybe
[17:42] <rodrigo_> ok
[17:42] <seb128> does anybody has questions or comments for Riddell?
[17:42] <seb128> Riddell, thanks
[17:43] <seb128> didrocks, hey
[17:43] <seb128> didrocks, UNE update?
[17:43] <didrocks> hey o/ seb128 made the release. All was troubleless near the swimming pool for me in the meantime. Wonderful experience on my side Smile :)
[17:43] <didrocks> more seriously, a lot of bug fix last week from what I saw, but still some
[17:43] <kenvandine> hehe
[17:44] <didrocks> seb128 and I are making some last minute dx update for beta
[17:44] <didrocks> more bug fixing in the two coming weeks and MT support landing this release
[17:44] <didrocks> any questions/remarks on annoying bug not listed yet?
[17:45] <seb128> to clarify the previous week version has gesture support
[17:45] <didrocks> (there will be some little ui changes too, but UNE is less impacted as there is no documentation AFAIK)
[17:45] <seb128> but extra use of that and change are still coming this week, after that they will stop it seems
[17:45] <seb128> didrocks, do you want to mention the banshee situation?
[17:45] <didrocks> sure
[17:45] <didrocks> so, banshee will have a new release tomorrow
[17:46] <didrocks> with finally udev backend
[17:46] <didrocks> no more hal
[17:46] <didrocks> but that requires no components (already packaged) and coordination with Laney and hyperair
[17:46] <didrocks> new gpod release too
[17:46] <didrocks> so, seems risky
[17:46] <didrocks> in any case, what we can do is landing that in the current universe package (we are on a unstable release in any case)
[17:46] <seb128> do you know if somebody tested the musicstore recently on banshee?
[17:47] <didrocks> ask for testing on OMGUbuntu site and get user testing
[17:47] <didrocks> I didn't for a month, I don't know if other have done
[17:47] <seb128> ok
[17:47] <didrocks> it was working great (apart from the empty mp3 file not included)
[17:47] <seb128> so let's get the update in universe this week
[17:48] <seb128> can you take an action to check the musicstore for next week?
[17:48] <didrocks> added to my TODO Smile :)
[17:48] <pedro_> gpod? is banshee using gpod now?
[17:48] <seb128> thanks
[17:48] <seb128> pedro_, yes Wink ;-)
[17:48] <pedro_> cool, i hate podsleuth.
[17:48] <seb128> ok
[17:48] <seb128> thanks didrocks
[17:49] <didrocks> yw Smile :)
[17:49] <seb128> tremolux, hey
[17:49] <seb128> tremolux, software-center update?
[17:49] <tremolux> hi seb128
[17:49] <tremolux> you bet
[17:49] <tremolux> Buy Something: Enabled by default for beta, serverside compoments to go live this week for limited testing, focus on bugfixing now
[17:49] <tremolux> New Apps: Custom metadata fix from Launchpad team to go live on next LP update (target Sep. 8th)
[17:49] <tremolux> UI Enhancements: New addons feature merged; many thanks to devildante for this feature, and thanks to kiwinote as well
[17:49] <tremolux> mvo implemented a very effective (and well-received) "where is it" feature for locating installed apps in the menu
[17:49] <tremolux> (more details on wiki, thanks!)
[17:50] <tremolux> so, lots of things in for beta, now testing and bugfixing
[17:50] <tremolux> any questions or comments?
[17:50] <seb128> nice to see the buy something getting there
[17:50] <tremolux> yes
[17:50] <seb128> so you wrote that there is a rt for extras.ubuntu.com
[17:50] <tremolux> yes
[17:50] <seb128> did you get any reply on that yet?
[17:51] <seb128> do they have any estimation on when that will be done?
[17:51] <tremolux> I haven't, but it's not *urgent* yet
[17:51] <seb128> well, it's not urgent but better in a week than in a month still
[17:51] <tremolux> yes, exactly
[17:51] <seb128> thanks for tracking that in any case Wink ;-)
[17:52] <tremolux> I've pinged elmo again, and raised it in our weekly s-c meeting
[17:52] <seb128> ok, great
[17:52] <seb128> is the screenshot item something you still think will get done this cycle?
[17:52] <seb128> "support screenshots for apps in extras.ubuntu.com (see screenshots for third party spec): TODO"
[17:52] <tremolux> I think the issue there is where the screenshots will be stored
[17:53] <seb128> that's sort of why I'm asking
[17:53] <seb128> if that's not sorted yet seems it's getting late?
[17:53] <seb128> do you have status updates on those changes somewhere?
[17:53] <tremolux> yes, agreed, I will check that
[17:53] <seb128> thanks
[17:54] <tremolux> I think that one has been on the back-burner, but you are right to point it out and thanks for that
[17:54] <seb128> let me know during the week if you get a status update
[17:54] <tremolux> sounds good, I will
[17:54] <seb128> thanks tremolux
[17:54] <seb128> that's all from me
[17:54] <seb128> other questions? comments?
[17:54] <tremolux> thanks seb128
[17:54] <seb128> ok, seems not, let's move on
[17:54] <seb128> pedro_, hey
[17:54] <pedro_> Hello
[17:55] <seb128> so pedro_ is joining our meeting, welcome to him
[17:55] <seb128> he's going to do a weekly qa status update
[17:55] <chrisccoulson> hi pedro_
[17:55] <tremolux> hello pedro_!
[17:55] <pedro_> glad to be here Smile :-)
[17:55] <seb128> pedro_, the mic is yours Wink ;-)
[17:55] <pedro_> ok so i'd like to raise some bugs to your attention
[17:55] <pedro_> bug 586012
[17:55] <ubot2> Launchpad bug 586012 in xfce4-panel (Ubuntu) (and 2 other projects) "[Maverick] XFCE system tray became unusable after libgtk upgrade (affects: 13) (dups: 4) (heat: 88)" [High,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/586012
[17:55] <pedro_> what would be the final word on that one?
[17:56] <pedro_> latest comment said it will be reviewed after alpha2 and we're getting there
[17:56] <seb128> it seemed that it was due to gtk rgba changes
[17:56] <seb128> which we dropped since, they were not ready
[17:56] <pedro_> summary: gtk rgba changes
[17:56] <seb128> could you check with the submitter if that's still an issue?
[17:56] <pedro_> right so they are not going to be enabled in maverick?
[17:56] <pedro_> seb128, yes
[17:57] <seb128> pedro_, no rgba in maverick no
[17:57] <seb128> we turned it off and it's staying this way
[17:57] <pedro_> ok i'll talk with the xfce guys
[17:57] <seb128> thanks
[17:57] <pedro_> the other bug: bug 623516
[17:57] <ubot2> Launchpad bug 623516 in empathy (Ubuntu) (and 1 other project) "empathy crashed because depend on package telepathy-logger (affects: 5) (dups: 2) (heat: 28)" [Medium,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/623516
[17:57] <pedro_> they are requesting a depends on the telepathy-logger
[17:57] <seb128> ok, we discussed that today on #telepathy
[17:57] <pedro_> probably is too late to do that?
[17:57] <seb128> we will change the recommends to a depends after beta
[17:58] <seb128> it's not an issue for new install and should not be for upgrades
[17:58] <seb128> out of people not getting recommends for some reason
[17:58] <pedro_> ok will update the bug to reflect that so we keep on the track
[17:58] <seb128> but indeed we should fix that
[17:58] <seb128> I will make sure it goes in after beta
[17:58] <seb128> pedro_, thanks
[17:58] <pedro_> i have a couple for lucid that might be good to look as well: bug 609855
[17:58] <ubot2> Launchpad bug 609855 in totem (Ubuntu) (and 1 other project) "Totem unable to play youtube videos (affects: 11) (heat: 158)" [Low,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/609855
[17:58] <pedro_> again, youtube is broken
[17:59] <seb128> I guess it's another server side change
[17:59] <seb128> I will check that later on
[17:59] <pedro_> the change doesn't seems to be too bad http://git.gnome.org/browse/totem/commit/?id=50027abd715acc24978e7830162c70c7e1a05811
[17:59] <kenvandine> love supporting services we have no control over :/

[18:00] <pedro_> that bug ^ is fixed on Maverick, but still as fix committed
[18:00] <pedro_> could get commit someone to make the fix that in Lucid?
[18:00] <chrisccoulson> b'ah, i was meant to upload the stable gnome-terminal to lucid ages ago Wink ;)

[18:00] <chrisccoulson> ok, i will fix Wink ;)
[18:00] <pedro_> thanks chrisccoulson Smile :-)
[18:00] <seb128> thanks chrisccoulson, pedro_
[18:01] <pedro_> other that it would look good to fix, bug 219385
[18:01] <ubot2> Launchpad bug 219385 in gtk+2.0 (CentOS) (and 4 other projects) "File filters can make file selection dialog too wide for screen (affects: 20) (dups: 13) (heat: 170)" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/219385
[18:01] <pedro_> the change is not too aggressive either and it would make us look even better
[18:01] <seb128> would be nice, that's fixed in gtk3 but the changes don't seem trivial for current gtk
[18:01] <pedro_> ah it's on gtk3 mm...
[18:01] <seb128> well I think it relies on the layout changes in gtk3
[18:02] <seb128> pedro_, any other one?
[18:02] <pedro_> i'm not a developer Wink ;-) so would be nice if someone could investigate
[18:02] <seb128> yeah, we will
[18:02] <pedro_> yes just a couple
[18:02] <pedro_> these are the ones that would be nice to keep an eye
[18:02] <pedro_> bug 405544
[18:03] <ubot2> Launchpad bug 405544 in linux (Ubuntu Lucid) (and 4 other projects) "Kernel does not recognize blank optical media (affects: 88) (dups: 13) (heat: 387)" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/405544
[18:03] <seb128> just drop the numbers maybe in list
[18:03] <pedro_> bug 617399
[18:03] <ubot2> Launchpad bug 617399 in f-spot (Ubuntu) (and 1 other project) ""Filename path must be absolute" error when opening image with "F-Spot Photo Manager" (affects: 6) (dups: 2) (heat: 236)" [Medium,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/617399
[18:03] <pedro_> bug 621445
[18:03] <ubot2> Launchpad bug 621445 in rhythmbox (Ubuntu) "rhythmbox crashed with SIGSEGV in g_closure_invoke() (affects: 44) (dups: 3) (heat: 210)" [Medium,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/621445
[18:03] <pedro_> and bug 625793
[18:03] <ubot2> Launchpad bug 625793 in indicator-application (and 1 other project) "sometimes keyboard layout automatically changed (affects: 3) (heat: 14)" [Undecided,Incomplete] https://launchpad.net/bugs/625793
[18:03] <pedro_> those are generating some duplicates or being raised in mailing lists
[18:04] <seb128> ok
[18:04] <seb128> I will check out on those later
[18:04] <pedro_> so just keep an eye in case those could affect a more wider audience, i'm keeping tracks of those but is never bad to have an extra pair of eyes there
[18:04] <seb128> I don't think we need to discuss every bug in the meeting
[18:04] <seb128> right
[18:04] <pedro_> no that's ok
[18:04] <seb128> pedro_, great list, thanks
[18:04] <pedro_> seb128, that's all from here unless there's a question
[18:04] <seb128> next week could you copy your list on the wiki before the meeting maybe?
[18:04] <chrisccoulson> no mozilla bugs? Smile :)
[18:04] <pedro_> seb128, yes it will go there next week
[18:04] <seb128> so I can try to have a quick overview before the meeting
[18:04] <seb128> thanks
[18:05] <pedro_> chrisccoulson, i'll add some for next meeting
[18:05] <seb128> pedro_, otherwise any special concern about the release?
[18:05] <seb128> any component you think is buggy or should get special care?
[18:05] <pedro_> i'm a bit worried about two things
[18:05] <pedro_> the changes on gtk that are making apps to crash
[18:05] <pedro_> like rhythmbox, evolution, etc
[18:05] <seb128> right, I'm working on dx for those
[18:05] <chrisccoulson> yeah, i'm finding appmenu-gtk is crashing nearly everything that doesn't export a menu right now
[18:05] <pedro_> i'm counting libindicate as part of that as well
[18:05] <seb128> it's mainly their appmenu thing
[18:06] <chrisccoulson> including nm-applet
[18:06] <pedro_> and the retracers being broken Sad :-(
[18:06] <seb128> right, that's blocked on launchpad
[18:06] <pedro_> i hope we don't miss any important crash
[18:06] <pedro_> right
[18:06] <seb128> I'm trying to push them but they move slowly
[18:06] <seb128> I'm concerned about that as well
[18:06] <pedro_> besides that i think the release is looking good so far
[18:06] <seb128> hopefully that gets fixed this week
[18:07] <pedro_> for next cycle would be nice to see more coordination with the dx team to get those changes earlier
[18:07] <seb128> the appmenu-gtk crash for things not exporting a menu might be fixing in trunk
[18:07] <seb128> if somebody wants to try
[18:07] <chrisccoulson> yeah, i'll try that later
[18:07] <seb128> pedro_, we do try but they tend to be busy Wink ;-)
[18:07] <seb128> thanks pedro_
[18:07] * seb128 hugs pedro_
[18:07] <pedro_> my pleasure
[18:07] <seb128> nice status update
[18:07] * pedro_ hugs seb128
[18:08] <pedro_> oh just a short announcement
[18:08] <seb128> sure
[18:08] <pedro_> the Thursday 02 we're having a bug day for empathy
[18:08] <seb128> nice
[18:08] <pedro_> so next week we're probably going to have some more bugs raised from there
[18:08] <seb128> the new version is in the queue
[18:08] <seb128> so it will be in after beta
[18:08] <pedro_> awesome
[18:08] <bcurtiswx> pedro_: i will DEF be on -bugs to help with that
[18:08] <seb128> thanks pedro_
[18:08] <pedro_> bcurtiswx, \o/
[18:09] <seb128> let's move on
[18:09] <pedro_> you're welcome
[18:09] <seb128> bcurtiswx, great Wink ;-)
[18:09] <seb128> http://people.canonical.com/~pitti/workitems/maverick/canonical-desktop-team-ubuntu-10.10-beta.html
[18:09] <seb128> so we are on shape for beta
[18:09] <seb128> not a lot to say, every should help testing isos
[18:09] <seb128> beta shapes to be solid out of some small issues
[18:09] <seb128> great work everybody
[18:10] <seb128> I've started milestoning bugs, I will dispatch some to team members
[18:10] <seb128> so please watch your assigned bugs
[18:10] <seb128> if you don't filter those out in some way you should
[18:11] <seb128> if you find any bug we should fix for maverick please nominate it for maverick
[18:11] <seb128> you can also assign to the team if you want so it's on our list
[18:11] <seb128> that's it from me
[18:11] <seb128> does anybody has questions or comments?
[18:11] <kenvandine> just a quick update on twitter... it will be broken for users until we get this update out
[18:12] <seb128> starting today?
[18:12] <kenvandine> yes
[18:12] <seb128> urg
[18:12] <kenvandine> sometime today they turn off basic auth
[18:12] <seb128> when will the update be out?
[18:12] <kenvandine> as soon as i get an ack from ryan on my branches
[18:12] <kenvandine> after the meeting i'll get both maverick and lucid versions in a PPA for people to start testing
[18:12] <seb128> ok
[18:12] <seb128> let's try to get that in just after beta
[18:13] <kenvandine> but my changes are pretty intrusive, so need to make sure upstream is OK with it
[18:13] <seb128> you can maybe get it in the desktop ppa for testing as well
[18:13] <kenvandine> so we have a good maintanance path
[18:13] <seb128> ok
[18:13] <kenvandine> hopefully we can get the SRU through quick... we'll talk about that soon
[18:13] <kenvandine> that is it
[18:13] <seb128> ok thanks
[18:13] <seb128> other comments?
[18:14] <seb128> seems not
[18:14] <seb128> thanks everybody
