Weekly Summary

  • Natty Alpha 1 released!

  • Patch Pilots from Desktop This Week: chrisccoulson, bryce (6 sponsored), robert-ancell, themuso, kenvandine

  • We have a large number of packages in Natty that don't build, please help out: http://udd.debian.org/cgi-bin/ubuntu_ftbfs.cgi

  • aptdaemon port to gtk3.0/pygi now landed in natty; this included a new upstream version 0.40 which has a slightly different API, so the reverse dependencies might need some porting (MartinPitt)

  • language-selector port to gtk3.0/pygi now landed in natty; please test (MartinPitt)

  • Tried to fix gir-repository, but it's broken beyond repair in Natty; worked on eliminating some of the remaining reverse dependencies, but more work needed here. (677382) (Martin Pitt)

  • work-items tracker: implement bug list based work items, as per request from Canonical Design team; first report is online (MartinPitt)

  • First language pack set for natty uploaded, translations are opened now; Firefox 4.0 not yet included (MartinPitt)

  • Some package rebuilds to reduce changelogs and PNGs; unfortunately the savings were more than eaten up by the extra Python 2.7 modules that we now ship (MartinPitt)

  • GNOME 3 PPA updates: gnome-control-center, gnome-bluetooth, gnome-settings-daemon, gsettings-desktop-schemas, gnome-keyring, seahorse (in progress)
  • pulseaudio package for Maverick in ubuntu-audio-dev PPA: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-audio-dev/+archive/ppa/

  • we have now an ubuntuone-control-panel package which will replace ubuntuone-preferences functionalities

  • Quickly and Quickly Widgets 11.03 have landed in natty, adding lots of neat changes and an alpha of the submitubuntu command to get your package into extras.ubuntu.com.

  • libindicator package builds for gtk2 and gtk3 have been uploaded, dbusmenu will come this week.
  • appindicator and libindicate have FTBFS problems because of the additional python version, introspection changes, and they need updating to build for gtk3 still
  • Updated HPLIP (HP's printer drivers) to version 3.10.9 (TillKamppeter).

  • Got nearly all of our Ubuntu patches on system-config-printer upstream, system-config-printer will soon be switched to the new 1.3.x generation (TillKamppeter).

  • Got the new Poppler-based pdftoraster feature-completed by upstream developer Koji Otani in Japan. Will replace the Ghostscript-based pdftoraster soon, working around Ghostscript's problems with resources and performance (especially if the input comes from Cairo) (TillKamppeter).

  • Workqueue graph: Made lines clickable and linked to the respective bug queues. Also added current #'s, and other tweaks to make it more readable. We're finding this graph a handy tool for staying atop incoming bug flow. (BryceHarrington)

  • GNOME updates and merges on Debian continued in natty
  • indicator-applet got ported to dbus, the vinagre and tomboy applet stopped being built (libbonoboui usage cleaning)
  • dbusmenu, libindicator and appindicator gdbus ports will land this week (DX Team)

  • Ubuntu One: desktopcouch fixes promised last week have been blocked by another bug which prevented testing, should be cleared up now and uploaded this week.

  • desktopcouch fixes promised last week have been blocked by another bug which prevented testing, should be cleared up now and uploaded this week.
  • Work started on implementing support for the Unity global menu in Firefox (and Thunderbird), and is progressing well (chrisccoulson)


  • New unity release and dependencies (nux/bamf) on Tuesday 30th November for alpha1

  • We decided to not do the Thursday release on the 2nd December to let people reporting issue from the alpha1 live session with apport without having "outdated packages" message from it.
  • Still a lot of bugs coming and fixing them little by little, but weirdly not a lot of crashers? If unity crashes for you, please report it!
  • Adding a bitesize tag to some bugs. jcastro and jono blogged about it. Already some people have made nice contribution! Thanks to them Smile :) Do not hesitate to enroll as well: https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bugs?field.tag=bitesize (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Unity/Bitesize)

  • Coming soon: you will find intellihide for the launcher, lot of nice small fixes in both unity and compiz (like session handling \o/), new gnome-session system.

Software Center

  • Startup performance
    • More great progress this week with an additional 30%+ improvement in startup time on reference hardware

    • Also includes general performance improvements with dramatically faster listviews and searches

  • Ratings and Reviews
  • Software Center 3.1.3 and 3.1.4 released, includes performance improvements mentioned above plus bug fixes and other improvements

  • Coming soon: Improvements to the purchase experience


  • Began rebuilds of wayland packages for natty PPA. Still a couple packages left to do. (BryceHarrington)

  • Implemented functionality to synaptics to allow overriding scaling of touchpad to match monitor (if touchpad and monitor aspect ratios are wildly off, this produces undesirable results). Solves several reported bugs. (BryceHarrington)

  • Reviewed Ubuntu Xserver patches. We were carrying several patches which had been reviewed upstream, but not committed to trunk. Resubmitted them upstream (ChrisHalseRogers)

(03:12:32 AM) DavidLevin left the room.
(03:12:40 AM) kenvandine: which has been fixed now, so should land in tomorrows release
(03:13:21 AM) kenvandine: DX, the big focus for this week is landing as much of the gdbus changes in the indicator stack as possible
(03:13:29 AM) kenvandine: before tedg goes on vacation

(03:14:00 AM) kenvandine: that is all i have
(03:14:12 AM) didrocks: kenvandine: is it the desktopcouch issue that makes couchjs crashing a lot (and then oneconf…)?
(03:14:12 AM) seb128: is ted on vacation until end of year then?
(03:14:20 AM) kenvandine: didrocks, yes
(03:14:33 AM) kenvandine: well, the couchdb bug that was causing

(03:18:22 AM) jasoncwarner1: very cool. Riddell , any feedback on a1 yet? that has KDE 4.6 right? 
(03:19:02 AM) Sir_Konrad left the room (quit: Read error: Connection reset by peer).
(03:19:09 AM) Riddell: jasoncwarner1: yes it was, but I didn't set up our normal feedback page so I've not spotted much in the way of comments
(03:19:34 AM) jasoncwarner1: ok. :)
(03:19:37 AM) jasoncwarner1: [TOPIC] X update -> eastern edition
(03:19:39 AM) Riddell: I've not heard of any problems
(03:19:47 AM) Riddell: which is usually the best thing for alpha 1 :)
(03:19:56 AM) jasoncwarner1: fair enough!
(03:19:58 AM) jasoncwarner1: [TOPIC] Unity update 
(03:20:21 AM) didrocks: New unity release and dependencies (nux/bamf) on Tuesday 30th November for alpha1
(03:20:22 AM) didrocks: We decided to not do the Thursday release on the 2nd December to let people reporting issue from the alpha1 live session with apport without having "outdated packages" message from it.
(03:20:25 AM) didrocks: Still a lot of bugs coming and fixing them little by little, but weirdly not a lot of crashers? If unity crashes for you, please report it!
(03:20:34 AM) didrocks: (actually I got a crash after writing that)
(03:20:41 AM) didrocks: (but it wasn't because of unity directly :))
(03:20:46 AM) didrocks: Adding a bitesize tag to some bugs. jcastro and jono blogged about it. Already some people have made nice contribution! Thanks to them  Do not hesitate to enroll as well: https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bugs?field.tag=bitesize
(03:20:50 AM) rodrigo_: report it! :D
(03:20:50 AM) didrocks: Coming soon: you will find intellihide for the launcher, lot of nice small fixes in both unity and compiz (like session handling \o/), new gnome-session system.
(03:20:54 AM) didrocks: rodrigo_: already done :)
(03:22:02 AM) rodrigo_: should we also report hardware setups where it doesn't work?
(03:22:26 AM) didrocks: rodrigo_: ubuntu-bug unity should report what's needed
(03:22:37 AM) didrocks: so use apport please :)
(03:22:38 AM) ***kenvandine hugs apport
(03:23:09 AM) rodrigo_: didrocks, well, when running it, I just get a black screen, with a mouse, so would running ubuntu-bug in that situation peek the correct stuff?
(03:23:18 AM) sabdfl [~sabdfl@ubuntu/member/sabdfl] entered the room.
(03:23:21 AM) didrocks: there is a page about how to report bugs for new contributors: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Unity
(03:23:40 AM) didrocks: rodrigo_: just run that in your ubuntu classic session
(03:23:44 AM) rodrigo_: ok
(03:24:04 AM) didrocks: the list of plugins won't be accurate, but well…
(03:24:08 AM) didrocks: (compiz plugins)
(03:24:44 AM) jasoncwarner1: Thanks, didrocks
(03:24:51 AM) pitti: didrocks, seb128: should we enable apport by default again?
(03:25:06 AM) didrocks: yw jasoncwarner1
(03:25:31 AM) htorque left the room ("Leaving").
(03:25:38 AM) didrocks: pitti: I have a lot of crashers (not unity ones), so I'm quite unsure about the state if we will be overwhelmed or not
(03:26:42 AM) didrocks: pitti: right now, I'm pointing people having crashes and not apport enabled to that wiki page so that they enable it, it's an additional comment on launchpad, but it seems to work
(03:26:43 AM) seb128: pitti, I'm not a a fan of doing that early
(03:26:50 AM) jasoncwarner1: can you turn apport on for a specific package (unity in this case)?
(03:26:55 AM) seb128: if we had a crash db out of launchpad that would be nice
(03:27:00 AM) pitti: seb128: right, me neither
(03:27:09 AM) seb128: but that's impacting on launchpad now
(03:27:15 AM) didrocks: pitti: btw, it's enabled in the CD, I think it's wanted?
(03:27:19 AM) pitti: didrocks: correct
(03:27:28 AM) pitti: you can report them from the live system
(03:27:43 AM) didrocks: pitti: that's why I hold on updating unity, thinking people will try and report in that case
(03:27:54 AM) didrocks: (and same rationale for compiz)
(03:28:05 AM) seb128: jasoncwarner1, no
(03:28:21 AM) didrocks: so, it's either it's all in a good state (I have almost nothing bothering me using unity full time) or that nobody is trying alpha1 :)
(03:28:22 AM) seb128: jasoncwarner1, it could probably be made but I don't think we can enable it for one source only
seb128 seiflotfy 
(03:29:15 AM) jasoncwarner1: seb128: ok. would be nice in this case, but probably not a generally useful feature ;)
(03:29:22 AM) jasoncwarner1: ok..thanks
(03:29:27 AM) pitti: didrocks: or everyone thinks "this crash is so common that everyone, including the devs, must have it"
(03:29:55 AM) pitti: seb128: well, we can hack it, but a proper solution would take a bit more effort
(03:29:57 AM) didrocks: pitti: maybe… right. So please, test it, use it! :)
(03:30:03 AM) pitti: I have nothing against a hack
(03:30:09 AM) pitti: if it'd help
(03:30:13 AM) didrocks: pitti: I think the current apport state is fine, it's easy enough to ask people activating it
(03:30:18 AM) rodrigo_: or they're not even testing it, I've seen many people on irc asking how to get their classic session back
(03:30:25 AM) pitti: didrocks: *nod*
(03:31:11 AM) didrocks: so yeah, I'm using unity full time and I love it :)
(03:31:11 AM) jasoncwarner1: when does apport tend to get turned on by default again? A2? 
(03:31:21 AM) pitti: I think after a2
(03:31:29 AM) kenvandine: i love it... but miss places and dash :)
(03:31:32 AM) seb128: jasoncwarner1, right, around a2 usually
(03:32:24 AM) jasoncwarner1: ok...works for me. thanks :)
(03:32:33 AM) jasoncwarner1: anything else didrocks? 
(03:32:50 AM) pitti: kenvandine: I miss gtimelog :)
(03:32:56 AM) didrocks: jasoncwarner1: that's it for me :)
(03:33:03 AM) jasoncwarner1: awesome, thanks
(03:33:04 AM) jasoncwarner1: [TOPIC] Software-center

(03:37:19 AM) pitti: http://people.canonical.com/~platform/workitems/natty/canonical-desktop-team-natty-alpha-2.html is getting behind a tad, but nothign too worrysome yet
(03:37:30 AM) pitti: .. except that now begins the holiday season, which will put us off track
(03:37:39 AM) pitti: and we have quite a large number here
(03:37:57 AM) pitti: of course didrocks alone owns 1/4 of them, so I'm sure it'll be alright :)
(03:38:03 AM) bryceh: heh
(03:38:26 AM) pitti: we fixed 6 RC bugs in the last 2 weeks, and only 3 are on the current release team radar
(03:38:28 AM) pitti: so great progress here
(03:38:54 AM) pitti: only one (bug 637827) will require serious work, the other two are well underwsay
(03:38:56 AM) ubot2: Launchpad bug 637827 in indicator-appmenu (Ubuntu Natty) (and 4 other projects) "Firefox and Thunderbird (XUL) menus don't appear in the global menu bar (affects: 30) (dups: 5) (heat: 136)" [Undecided,Invalid] https://launchpad.net/bugs/637827

(03:39:20 AM) pitti: questions?
(03:39:33 AM) pitti: didrocks: please let me know early when you get into difficulties :)
(03:40:02 AM) didrocks: pitti: well, most of them are easy and small. Oneconf ones can be postponed if needed :)
(03:40:13 AM) seb128: pitti, well, if you don't count the dx items our team count seems ok
(03:40:25 AM) seb128: as didrocks was saying without oneconf he should be alright
(03:40:41 AM) didrocks: seb128: but I really want it this cycle :)
(03:40:45 AM) seb128: we can postpone the telepathy-indicator againif required
(03:40:54 AM) didrocks: so, will fight to get it done on time ;)
(03:40:55 AM) seb128: so we have quite some margins
(03:40:58 AM) pitti: seb128: right, but same thing wrt. holidays

(08:33:42 AM) jasoncwarner1: well then, we can get started. 
(08:33:54 AM) jasoncwarner1: Don't forget to update the link above with your summary. 
(08:34:02 AM) chrisccoulson: hi!
(08:34:07 AM) chrisccoulson: i might sit in on this one ;)
(08:34:19 AM) jasoncwarner1: [TOPIC] Action Item review 
(08:34:51 AM) robert_ancell: -1 for adding back attendance list
(08:34:57 AM) jasoncwarner1: -1? 
(08:35:06 AM) jasoncwarner1: k, we can discuss later. :)
(08:35:10 AM) robert_ancell: I can't think what audience needs it, and it's easily worked out by reading the log
(08:35:26 AM) robert_ancell: ok
(08:35:33 AM) jasoncwarner1: [TOPIC] X update
(08:36:18 AM) RAOF: The merge window for Xserver 1.10 is/has closing/closed.
(08:36:52 AM) RAOF: There's been somewhat of a merging frenzy, most of which is pretty benign.
(08:38:00 AM) RAOF: RandR 1.4 support with per-crtc pixmaps is a bit scary, though.  We're waiting for the dust to settle before determining whether to move to 1.10 for natty.
(08:38:09 AM) RAOF: (A week ago, 1.10 was a sure thing ☺)
(08:38:31 AM) bryceh: RAOF, have you looked at those randr patches yet?
(08:38:35 AM) bryceh: (I've not)
(08:39:23 AM) RAOF: I've skimmed them; much of the changes *are* benign (adding an optional extra hook for drivers which want to do modesetting in one go).
(08:39:49 AM) walters left the room (quit: Ping timeout: 245 seconds).
(08:40:30 AM) RAOF: But the crtc-pixmap bit is... dangerous.  But from my understanding is opt-in (ish) by the compositing manager.
(08:41:18 AM) bryceh: so as long as compiz doesn't get updated to start using it, maybe we're ok
(08:41:40 AM) RAOF: If we were using it it *would* fix compiz on large multi-head systems with low max texture sizes.
(08:42:02 AM) RAOF: No more “I plugged in a monitor and desktop effects turned off”.
(08:42:08 AM) bryceh: perhaps that would be worthwhile ppa juice
(08:42:20 AM) RAOF: Mmmm.
(08:42:36 AM) bryceh: Regarding bugs - there are 6 X bugs reported against natty on our plate - http://www.bryceharrington.org/X/Reports/ubuntu-x-swat/totals-natty-workqueue.svg
(08:43:00 AM) bryceh: so far, we've been doing pretty good at pounding bugs out as they appear on that chart
(08:43:46 AM) bryceh: (the 3 nvidia/fglrx bugs may be related)
(08:44:54 AM) jasoncwarner1: ok...anything else you guys wanted to add? 
(08:44:55 AM) 92AABQDRE [~jason@cpe-74-67-80-60.stny.res.rr.com] entered the room.
(08:45:19 AM) 92AABQDRE left the room (quit: Client Quit).
(08:45:34 AM) jasoncwarner1: Unless I'm missing a category (possible) we jump right to 
(08:45:38 AM) bryceh: jasoncwarner1, nothing from me.  last week was patch pilot for me, and mostly doing bug work and arsenal script fixing beyond that
(08:45:41 AM) jasoncwarner1: [TOPIC] AOB ?
(08:45:43 AM) hyperair [~hyperair@ubuntu/member/hyperair] entered the room.
(08:45:44 AM) RAOF: We'll probably want to upload a mesa 7.10 RC/snapshot in the not too distant future, I think.
(08:45:53 AM) RAOF: But that's not this week :)
(08:46:53 AM) jasoncwarner1: TheMuso: robert_ancell ? any other business you guys want to update? 
(08:46:53 AM) nessita left the room.
(08:47:10 AM) SirNeo [~sirneo@unaffiliated/sirneo] entered the room.
(08:47:16 AM) TheMuso: Not from me.
(08:47:19 AM) robert_ancell: Just a reminder to have a look at the FTBFS list: http://udd.debian.org/cgi-bin/ubuntu_ftbfs.cgi
(08:47:19 AM) bryceh: for packaging we're mostly in sync with debian/upstream - http://www.bryceharrington.org/X/Reports/ubuntu-x-swat/versions-current.html.  That chart will start getting busy once new xserver hits I bet.
(08:47:44 AM) seiflotfy left the room (quit: Ping timeout: 245 seconds).
(08:47:54 AM) ricotz left the room (quit: Quit: Ex-Chat).
(08:47:57 AM) jasoncwarner1: If not, only thing I wanted to say was that I got a short 'bitesize' bug list for unity. 
(08:48:09 AM) jasoncwarner1: https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bugs?field.tag=bitesize
(08:48:09 AM) SirNeo left the room.
(08:49:06 AM) jasoncwarner1: ok. sounds like we are out of topics to discuss. Don't forget to update summary
(08:49:10 AM) jasoncwarner1: Thanks everyone
(08:49:14 AM) bryceh: thanks
(08:49:18 AM) jasoncwarner1: [END MEETING] ;)
