- Created a new team for tracking all the desktop packages we maintain, its different from desktop-bugs team because its also including firefox,libreoffice,gwibber,etc. If the package you're maintaining as part of your work on the desktop team is not there please let me know so i can include it. This list is important to maintain up to date so every other team can look at it and see which set of packages we're really taking care of, team is at:
FeatureFreeze happened, and lots of MIRs got processed. If you have an outstanding MIR that needs attention, poke mterry on IRC.
MIRs for new printer driver packages c2esp, rastertosag-gdi, and ptouch-driver passed. Packages seeded onto CDs (TillKamppeter).
Everything on the Color Management Blueprint succeeded, except the colord MIR, waiting for security decision by Kees Cook. Did some packaging changes to achieve this. Meetings with pitti and Richard Hughes on Desktop Summit for working on the Color Management (TillKamppeter).
Worked with upstream developers of Ghostscript to get CUPS Raster output device correctly working with color management and the RGBW color space needed by the HPLIP driver (TillKamppeter).
Worked with Didier Raboud (OdyX) on centralizing the repeated postinst code of the printer drivers to update the PPD files of already existing print queues into CUPS. CUPS package updated on Debian's BZR repository and updated rastertosag-gdi as test package (TillKamppeter).

17:32:14 pitti no team reports yet, so let's do that via IRC again 17:32:21 pitti kenvandine: want to start with partner update? 17:32:24 tkamppeter pitti, colord still not passed through security check ... 17:32:37 mterry hi 17:32:41 pitti tkamppeter: failed, or just didn't get to it yet? 17:33:23 chrisccoulson hi! 17:33:24 pitti oh, and there it appears on the wiki page :) 17:33:44 tkamppeter pitti, kees had some questions and upstream Richard Hughes has answered, but nothing new from kees or mterry then. 17:33:46 pitti kenvandine: btw, do you know about the "Bug:12345" wiki syntax? 17:34:10 * kenvandine waves 17:34:15 kenvandine meeting? 17:34:32 mterry I'm waiting on kees to respond re: security 17:35:28 seb128 kenvandine, you are late! 17:36:05 seb128 pitti, mterry: gnome-settings-daemon is depwaiting for 3 uploads, maybe we should pre-promote or ping kees to get that sorted? 17:36:44 pitti pinging is better, I think; otherwise we'd have to rollback a feature, which might be harder 17:37:15 pitti kenvandine: I responded to the ubuntone-installer FFE bug; but I have to admit this is still very vague to me 17:37:33 pitti kenvandine: is there a current plan how to handle U1 packages from now on? 17:37:58 pitti seb128: kees was on a conference last week according to his trip report, so perhaps he'll respond this week? 17:38:18 seb128 pitti, right 17:39:11 * kenvandine waves... is this thing on?

17:43:17 kenvandine pitti, i think they think there is a plan 17:43:26 kenvandine but it all still seems vague to me too 17:43:44 kenvandine pitti, sorry i don't have more info :/ 17:44:01 kenvandine josh is going to try to get something more concrete 17:44:09 kenvandine but i hear that every week :/ 17:46:31 pitti wrt. rhythmbox, I thought gtk 3 porting was out of scope for oneiric? 17:46:41 kenvandine it is 17:46:52 kenvandine so they need to have the plugin for rb removed 17:47:18 kenvandine but i haven't heard a definative answer that they didn't want to support rb 17:47:24 pitti i. e. rhythmbox-ubuntuone-music-store needs to become an empty transitional package 17:47:52 kenvandine yeah 17:49:04 pitti as for unity, didrocks is on vacation 17:49:12 pitti seb128: shall we just skip this, or do you have something to discuss there? 17:49:42 seb128 I can do a short summary 17:49:59 seb128 new unity with all features for this cycle landed on the ff line 17:50:01 seb128 lot of bugs 17:50:30 pitti is the bright transparent pink dash background a bug or a feature? 17:50:33 * pitti is afraid "feature" 17:51:26 pitti let's hope it'll stabilize in the next two weeks then 17:51:27 rodrigo_ :) 17:51:37 pedro_ are they planning to fix the window switcher (alt+tab) or its going to stay the same way its right now? 17:52:12 seb128 doh 17:52:15 seb128 sorry got sidetracked 17:52:19 seb128 pitti, so yeah 17:52:20 seb128 lot of bugs 17:52:27 seb128 they plan a bug fix version on thursday 17:52:35 seb128 they are on bug fix mode from now on 17:52:40 seb128 weekly tarballs again 17:52:49 seb128 compiz is still not sorted 17:53:00 seb128 they have a new candidate version out that needs testing and approval 17:53:09 seb128 other option is to roll back to the natty compiz 17:53:31 seb128 pitti, there is a bug about picking wrong colors 17:53:50 seb128 but the blur is wanted 17:53:58 seb128 they will likely tweak it I guess 17:54:00 pitti thanks for the summary 17:54:08 seb128 pedro_, alt-tab should have bug fixes and improvements 17:54:09 seb128 yw 17:54:15 pitti no tremolux 17:54:21 pitti but s-c seems to be in good shape 17:54:23 pedro_ seb128, good to know, thanks :-) 17:54:53 pitti anything we should discuss at this point? 17:55:06 pitti new gnome 3.1.5 will bring some disruptions, FYI 17:55:16 seb128 right 17:55:23 seb128 I guess we decided to not go for clutter on the CD 17:55:31 pitti yay 17:55:38 seb128 though kenvandine said he would check with empathy upstream how much not having the new call ui is an issue 17:55:46 pitti so we'll keep totem/cheese at their current versions or patch it back out? 17:55:56 seb128 cheese is in universe 17:56:07 pitti ah, empathy then 17:56:12 seb128 the empathy guys made it possible to not use libcheese for us 17:56:20 kenvandine those guys rock 17:56:21 seb128 and ev is using gstreamer directly now 17:56:33 seb128 totem> yeah, I will keep the new version in a ppa 17:56:43 seb128 having video playing relying on clutter is risky 17:56:51 seb128 we said we would discuss putting back pitivi on the CD btw 17:57:02 seb128 and gnome-contacts is coming with GNOME 3.2, rodrigo is packaging it 17:57:09 seb128 (i.e an adressbook for GNOME) 17:57:19 desrt cheese demoted? :( 17:57:23 seb128 we missed the ff but not sure if we should aim to an exception for it 17:57:24 desrt cd space, i guess? 17:57:41 pitti desrt: no, tons of new depends we don't want 17:57:49 seb128 desrt, CD space, depends on clutter-gst, clutter-gesture, mx, and camorabin which is in one of the universe gst set 17:58:03 desrt fair enough 17:58:06 pitti seb128: there's a rather strong case for addressbook, as we just dropped evo from CD 17:58:09 rodrigo_ seb128, it's not going on the cd, but universe, so does it need a FFE? 17:58:20 seb128 rodrigo_, still yes 17:58:21 pitti FF affects the entire universe, yes 17:58:26 rodrigo_ ok 17:58:29 seb128 but why not aiming for the CD? 17:58:34 seb128 it's small and useful 17:58:37 rodrigo_ yeah 17:58:43 * kenvandine would like that 17:58:55 rodrigo_ I stopped the submission ebcause the 0.1.1 version is a bit broken 17:59:08 rodrigo_ but the package is ready since Friday, so we can upload that for noe 17:59:27 rodrigo_ I think a new version is coming soon, so we can also wait 17:59:36 seb128 rodrigo_, there is a 0.1.2 now 17:59:36 pitti please submit an FFE bug 17:59:41 pitti I'll approve it 17:59:46 seb128 rodrigo_, it's out this earlier today or yesterday 17:59:54 rodrigo_ seb128, oh, I checked this morning and it wasn't 17:59:57 rodrigo_ ok 17:59:57 seb128 rodrigo_, if you get kenvandine to sponsor it for you I can NEW review it 18:00:15 kenvandine rodrigo_, just send it my way when it is ready :) 18:00:16 rodrigo_ seb128, kenvandine: it's in lp:~ubuntu-desktop/gnome-contacts/ubuntu 18:00:26 rodrigo_ I'll update to 0.1.2 and ping kenvandine 18:00:30 kenvandine thx 18:01:28 seb128 pitti, I think that's all from desktop side 18:01:33 pitti cheers 18:01:40 seb128 out of the fact that we have tons of bugs and we are behind or other things 18:01:52 seb128 or->on 18:02:04 seb128 like screensaver look 18:02:15 seb128 just to pick one 18:03:06 pitti or the ubuntu lightdm theme 18:03:12 pitti or not being able to login :) 18:03:34 pitti ok, so let's stop having a meeting then and get cracking again :) 18:03:38 seb128 yeah, lightdm, mterry has been helping a bit on it and robert_ancell is back 18:03:49 pitti thanks everyone! 18:03:55 seb128 thanks pitti 18:04:01 pedro_ thanks!
