(09:37:25 AM) bilalakhtar left the room (quit: Quit: Ex-Chat).
(09:37:30 AM) pitti: the large majority is approved now
(09:37:39 AM) pitti: rickspencer3 needs to approve https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/appdevs-desktop-n-opportunistic-developer-manual
(09:37:57 AM) pitti:  (sort by reverse "design" is best)
(09:38:06 AM) rickspencer3: done
(09:38:15 AM) pitti: and we have 5 which are still drafting
(09:38:24 AM) pitti: rickspencer3: that must have been utterly thorough :)
(09:38:36 AM) pitti: I'd like to run through them quickly
(09:38:37 AM) pitti: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/other-desktop-n-set-default-paper-size-correctly
(09:38:42 AM) pitti: tkamppeter: ^
(09:38:55 AM) pitti: this seems like a very complex problem, and is a corner case at the same time IMHO
(09:39:37 AM) pitti: tkamppeter: would you like to work on this during natty, or should we postpone this to olympic opossum?
(09:40:08 AM) rodrigo_: doesn't the 'ñ' come after Natty??? :)
(09:40:12 AM) pitti: this requires some thorough use cases first, analysis of what currently happens, discussions with upstream etc.
(09:40:28 AM) rickspencer3: pitti, I was in the session ;)
(09:40:35 AM) nessita left the room.

(09:41:05 AM) al-maisan is now known as almaisan-away
(09:41:11 AM) pitti: that's Allison's, and she still has time until the "official" blueprint deadline
(09:41:15 AM) pitti: so I'll ignore this for now
(09:41:22 AM) and471 left the room (quit: Read error: Connection reset by peer).
(09:41:33 AM) pitti: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/multimedia-desktop-n-audio-apport-symptom is diwic's
(09:41:54 AM) pitti: also not strictly our team, I'll ping diwic about it
(09:42:04 AM) pitti: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/packageselection-desktop-n-thunderbird-on-ubuntu
(09:42:09 AM) pitti: this is a bit inconsistent
(09:42:14 AM) pitti: "Accepted for natty" but "deferred"
(09:42:22 AM) pitti: chrisccoulson: should this rather be un-targetted for natty?
(09:42:54 AM) chrisccoulson: pitti - yeah, that one should be untargetted. i don't think there are any WI's there are there?
(09:43:05 AM) pitti: chrisccoulson: right, and status is still new
(09:43:06 AM) chrisccoulson: (i think i'm tracking all my WI in other blueprints)
(09:43:26 AM) pitti: chrisccoulson: ok, done
(09:43:30 AM) chrisccoulson: thanks
(09:43:52 AM) pitti: cool, so except for the papersize one we are in shape

(09:44:16 AM) ***pitti ^5s team, let's have at it!
(09:44:27 AM) pitti: jasoncwarner: I'm done, here's the mike back

(09:45:01 AM) jasoncwarner: I can take that one, pitti
(09:45:07 AM) pitti: thanks
(09:45:13 AM) jasoncwarner: back to the agenda
(09:45:25 AM) jasoncwarner: Partner update? 
(09:45:29 AM) kenvandine: nothing to report on the partner update, besides the team fix for U1 work items, so that will help a lot!
(09:45:49 AM) jasoncwarner: Ok...
(09:45:52 AM) jasoncwarner: Kubuntu update? 
(09:46:11 AM) pitti: kenvandine: nothing new on DX as well? compiz etc.?
(09:46:19 AM) didrocks: pitti: this is in the unity update
(09:46:32 AM) kenvandine: what didrocks said :)
(09:46:32 AM) el_wholer [~granrodri@] entered the room.

(09:48:04 AM) Riddell: hi
(09:48:10 AM) Riddell:  * 4.5.3 uploaded and built
(09:48:11 AM) Riddell:  * trouble on arm due to removal of CXXFLAGS += -Wa,-mimplicit-it=thumb by default
(09:48:18 AM) Riddell: doko will investigate the arm issue tomorrow
(09:48:22 AM) pitti: oh, why did we drop thumb again?
(09:48:32 AM) Riddell: because upstream didn't like it I believe
(09:48:32 AM) pitti: didn't we rebuild everything for it in lucid (or was it maverick?)
(09:48:34 AM) pitti: ah
(09:48:42 AM) Riddell: merges all done
(09:48:57 AM) Riddell: need to make sure all our deltas go upstream
(09:49:04 AM) Riddell: then we're all ready to get into feature mode!
(09:49:17 AM) jasoncwarner: :)
(09:49:32 AM) jasoncwarner: Awesome.
(09:50:00 AM) jasoncwarner: [ACTION] doko to investigate arm issue for kubuntu
(09:50:06 AM) jasoncwarner: Anything else? 
(09:50:19 AM) jasoncwarner: If not, we'll move onto release bugs/release status. 
(09:50:25 AM) jasoncwarner: which I'm assuming is light ;)
(09:50:26 AM) didrocks: jasoncwarner: isn't the turn of Unity update? :) (the Agenda has never been upated to include Unity/USC update I'm afraid, will do it)
(09:50:39 AM) pitti: didrocks: can you please update the Template?
(09:50:47 AM) didrocks: jasoncwarner: look at the wiki page, below agenda
(09:50:49 AM) pitti: didrocks: while you are at it, perhaps change the chair from Rick to Jason :)
(09:50:59 AM) didrocks: pitti: will do that too
(09:51:02 AM) jasoncwarner: UNITY/USC  it is!
(09:51:12 AM) didrocks: so Unity…
(09:51:14 AM) didrocks: dx team is working hard to get a rocking unity on compiz!
(09:51:25 AM) ***pitti remembers TheMuso having lots of fun with that last week
(09:51:26 AM) didrocks: compiz is uploaded today in natty as a first step to unity compiz. We still need some patches to compiz to be ready for landing unity into natty. Will come soon… very soon :)
(09:51:28 AM) htorque [~john@i538759D5.versanet.de] entered the room.
(09:51:28 AM) ***rodrigo_ is not on the template, feels out :(
(09:51:40 AM) didrocks: your dear compiz will be partially broken (no pager in gnome-panel applet real support) and no integration in gnome-control-center (will show "no effect"), also the edge doesn't react. Known issues, will be fixed soon or post alpha1 for some parts
(09:51:50 AM) didrocks: The migration of data/settings from older compiz 0.8 to newer compiz (0.9+) is planned upstream for alpha2
(09:51:54 AM) pitti: didrocks: does that need any magic for keeping user conf during upgrade? or did that not change?
(09:51:56 AM) didrocks: rodrigo_: will add you too
(09:52:04 AM) rodrigo_: didrocks, merci
(09:52:07 AM) didrocks: pitti: no magic right now, just dropped
(09:52:25 AM) didrocks: pitti: not removed, but the folder name isn't the same
(09:52:29 AM) pitti: didrocks: ah, you preempted me
(09:52:40 AM) didrocks: I was sure you were about to react :)
(09:52:49 AM) didrocks: pitti: so, there are two kind of magic needed:
(09:52:52 AM) pitti: didrocks: should we make a backup of our current conf, so that we can reinstall it for later upgrade testing?
(09:53:03 AM) rodrigo_: didrocks, btw, there's no more appearance applet/panel in g-c-c 3
(09:53:07 AM) didrocks: 1. upgrade data from compiz 0.8 to 0.9
(09:53:19 AM) didrocks: 2. handling conflicting plugins with adding unity by default
(09:53:20 AM) rodrigo_: didrocks, so the stuff for setting up compiz effects needs to be thought
(09:53:34 AM) didrocks: pitti: no, you will still have your old data in ~/.compiz and ~/.config/compiz
(09:53:40 AM) didrocks: pitti: the new is reading at compiz-1
(09:53:48 AM) pitti: ok
(09:54:02 AM) didrocks: rodrigo_: ok, thanks for the heads up
(09:54:07 AM) didrocks: rodrigo_: I won't spent time on that then
(09:54:20 AM) seb128: we didn't decide if we would take g-c-c 3 this cycle
(09:54:26 AM) seb128: especially due to such questions
(09:54:48 AM) kenvandine: yeah, but i am very interested in the ideas for a web accounts interface :)
(09:54:49 AM) didrocks: ok, will put the WI for later, it just helps to focus on more urgent things
(09:55:37 AM) rodrigo_: kenvandine, g-s-d and g-c-c packages coming soon, but no web accounts yet
(09:55:42 AM) seb128: kenvandine, right, we will need to check with the u1 about that though
(09:55:59 AM) seb128: just to be clear coming to a ppa, not natty
(09:56:05 AM) rodrigo_: yeah, right
(09:56:06 AM) kenvandine: yeah
(09:56:18 AM) pitti: I'll package the user admin portion of gcc 3.0, though
(09:56:27 AM) pitti: (needed as replacement for gnome-system-tools)
(09:56:41 AM) ***pitti lets his Perl axe blink for a bit
(09:56:42 AM) rodrigo_: pitti, it needs the whole g-c-c 3
(09:57:28 AM) warp10 left the room (quit: Quit: Scotty, beam me up!).
(09:57:30 AM) pitti: rodrigo_: source yes, but I take it the user admin part can be split into a separate binary package
(09:57:32 AM) seb128: rodrigo_, no, that was a standalone component before
(09:57:42 AM) pitti: I did that already for the network proxy and something else
(09:57:48 AM) rodrigo_: yeah, but now it's obsolete, and part of g-c-c
(09:57:51 AM) pitti: anyway, details
(09:57:58 AM) warp10 [~andrea@ubuntu/member/warp10] entered the room.
(09:58:04 AM) seb128: rodrigo_, well if we don't take the new g-c-c we will investigate taking the old source for this cycle
(09:58:11 AM) rodrigo_: ok
(09:59:14 AM) pitti: didrocks: you're done?
(09:59:27 AM) dpm left the room (quit: Quit: Ex-Chat).
(09:59:34 AM) didrocks: pitti: I'm done, yes
(09:59:39 AM) tremolux: ok, so USC update

(10:02:42 AM) pedro_: hello!
(10:02:46 AM) seb128: pedro_, not sure if you want to start doing a weekly status that early in the cycle?
(10:03:24 AM) pitti: jasoncwarner: wrt. release status/bugs, I didn't start tracking them yet; we just finished blueprints and don't have release meetings yet
(10:03:42 AM) pitti: jasoncwarner: I'll prepare an initial release status page by next week
(10:03:54 AM) seb128: release bugs we let pedro_ do a qa status update usually if he has anything for us

(10:16:55 AM) tkamppeter: pitti, in one point I have started by fixing s-c-p to actually follow /etc/papersize when creating a queue.


(03:05:23 PM) jasoncwarner: Ok, AU desktop team, I imagine this could be quick :)
(03:05:25 PM) jasoncwarner: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopTeam/Meeting/2010-11-09
(03:05:37 PM) jasoncwarner: that is the link and notes from the previous meeting

(03:06:28 PM) jasoncwarner: everyone here? 
(03:06:42 PM) RAOF: Aye aye!
(03:06:58 PM) TheMuso: Yep.
(03:07:05 PM) TheMuso: Robert is not yet online.
(03:07:07 PM) jasoncwarner: Afternoon (morning for you guys)
(03:07:21 PM) jasoncwarner: He mentioned he was moving ISPs, I wonder if he is offline b/c of that. 
(03:07:27 PM) TheMuso: Oh ok.
(03:07:34 PM) jasoncwarner: either way we can get started...
(03:09:00 PM) jasoncwarner: you can see from the wiki above there wasn't much in the agenda to go over other than some quick status. Didier updated us on Unity (see notes) and pitti reset the cycle trackers, so we are good to go with work items
(03:09:06 PM) joaopinto [~janito@bl13-3-45.dsl.telepac.pt] entered the room.

(03:10:03 PM) RAOF: Yup.
(03:10:08 PM) TheMuso: So far so good, I prodded David about the a11y spec, but he hasn't looked/responded about it yet. Will poke him again later today when he is online.
(03:10:21 PM) chrisccoulson: hi everybody on the other side of the world! :)
(03:10:36 PM) jasoncwarner: TheMuso: sounds good. RAOF. awesome. 
chris| chrisccoulson 
(03:10:58 PM) jasoncwarner: chrisccoulson: hello :)
(03:11:11 PM) RAOF: chrisccoulson: Hello insomniac Brit :)
(03:11:11 PM) nessita left the room.
(03:11:22 PM) TheMuso: Hey chrisccoulson.
(03:11:31 PM) chrisccoulson: lol. it's not that late here just yet. i've got a few more hours to go ;)
(03:11:36 PM) jasoncwarner: RAOF: want to give a quick X Update (if anything at this point)
(03:12:05 PM) RAOF: X update:  We're largely in sync with Debian at the moment.
(03:12:08 PM) robert_ancell [~bob@ppp121-44-37-89.lns20.syd6.internode.on.net] entered the room.
(03:13:02 PM) jasoncwarner: Ok. Anything else? If not, TheMuso, anything you would like to report? 
(03:13:05 PM) RAOF: None of the new code for Mesa or X has landed; we'll be taking snapshots of Mesa once things settle down a bit more, and snapshots of Xserver 1.10 once the ABI's settled and we're sure we want it.
robbiew robert_ancell 
(03:13:08 PM) jasoncwarner: and, welcome robert_ancell :)
(03:13:22 PM) jasoncwarner: Awesome. 
(03:13:27 PM) RAOF: Internode.  A fine choice :)
(03:13:39 PM) TheMuso: jasoncwarner: Not so far, now I have recovered from my trip, I am starting to ramp up my atk research/prototyping, and playing with unity compiz.
(03:14:29 PM) robert_ancell: jasoncwarner, hey
(03:14:30 PM) jasoncwarner: TheMuso: good. I have an action to setup a meeting w/ you for next week once I land in AU :)
(03:15:02 PM) TheMuso: jasoncwarner: Cool.
(03:15:16 PM) robert_ancell: oh, meeting.  I thought it was yesterday
(03:15:22 PM) RAOF: Oh, something notable for the Intel users: we've dropped the patch disabling pageflipping in the intel DDX.  You may recall me dropping this patch in Prague, and everyone's display freezing at regular intervals.  We're watching the bug reports :)
(03:15:46 PM) TheMuso: robert_ancell: Check your calendar... :)
(03:15:55 PM) jasoncwarner: RAOF: Noted! thanks. 
(03:16:23 PM) jasoncwarner: robert_ancell: no worries...anything you want to update? 
(03:16:45 PM) robert_ancell: nothing in particular, just working through GNOME updates
(03:17:31 PM) jasoncwarner: fair enough
(03:18:16 PM) alecu left the room (quit: Quit: Ex-Chat).
(03:18:26 PM) jasoncwarner: well then, since we didn't have much from other meeting as well, it is almost time to call the meeting :) I'll update the wiki and put the actions in there. 
(03:18:28 PM) jasoncwarner: Anything else? 
(03:19:06 PM) jasoncwarner: then.... [END MEETING] :)
(03:19:43 PM) jasoncwarner: thanks guys!
