Actions from this meeting
- New pygobject 2.90 is in oneiric, and all known breakage fixed. Please report problems. (pitti)
- Started packaging GNOME 3.1.90/3.1.91. (rodrigo, ricotz, jbicha, pitti, didrocks)
- working on a patch-only (decoupling from debian packaging) 3.3.4 SRU for Natty
- working on 3.4.3 update for Oneiric
New Unity last week, fixed a bunch of bugs and speedup improvment. Full list at https://launchpad.net/unity/4.0/4.12.0
- Full CJK support across many components (unity, apt-xapian, software-center and zeitgeist-fts)
- This week will see a new Unity release, focused on startup time speedup. Other misc; fixes to alt + tab and dash coming.
- New compiz under testing in the unity-team ppa. Fix some stacking issues and other misc. bugs. Still some work needed for getting all the stacking issues out.
Worked on integrating back in gnome-control-center and GNOME compiz. Work done, you can enjoy Ctrl + Alt + T by default again!
New unity-2d release this week. Full list of bug fixes at https://launchpad.net/unity-2d/+milestone/4.4
- Worked on some startup flickering, 3 are quite annoying:
nautilus shows its appmenu bar before unity-2d is showing (and it's showing as well under GNOME session). Wait for dx team (bumped the priority) so that they update their appmenu patch for Gtk3 (https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity-2d/+bug/839611)
nautilus shows a left bar (5px) for few seconds on the left. After debugging, tt's the desktop icon background (but it already have the full screen size), is it a remaining panel part? Chriscoulson will look at it. (https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity-2d/+bug/839610)
metacity shows some green/blue/all color boxes in https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity-2d/+bug/820553. Seems because
- Qt 4.7.4 available in the ubuntu-desktop ppa. It breaks unity-2d right now, some fixes already in, but more work needed. Kubuntu testing under way.
- Software Center version 4.1.21 released, includes:
- Currently fixing many more bugs, fixes to be included in next release coming this week

17:37:25 pitti tremolux: I didn't notice an outburst of people complaining that it doesn't work, or anythign like that 17:37:56 tremolux pitti: right, that's my impression also, at least if they are complaining a lot, I don't know where ;) 17:38:10 tremolux we do have crashes and lots of rough edges that people complain about in bug reports 17:38:40 pitti tremolux: and now that oneconf is in, I guess there is not a lot of reason to switch back; WDYT? 17:38:41 tremolux but we are fixing those as quickly as we can 17:39:02 pedro_ there were a few crashes in s-c but i must say that they were fixed really quickly :-) 17:39:07 tremolux pitti: well, I did not know there was an option to switch back! 17:39:12 pedro_ bug patterns were written for most of them 17:39:13 rodrigo_ :) 17:39:27 pitti tremolux: well, it would have been the obvious contingency plan in case -gtk 3 fell apart, or oneconf broke, etc. 17:39:34 tremolux pitti: yep :) 17:39:37 * pitti hugs pedro_ 17:39:53 pitti tremolux: do you plan to keep -gtk2 as a fallback, or do you want to remove it from the package completely? 17:39:54 tremolux pitti: but yes, it seems things are really not in bad shape 17:40:03 tremolux pitti: so far, we will keep it I think 17:40:31 tremolux pitti: but yeah, there will be no use maintaining that at all so it should go as soon as we can 17:40:37 pitti ok, thanks 17:40:46 tremolux pedro_: yes, thanks for the bugpatterns!! :) 17:41:07 pitti another general plea: please update your remaining WIs (or postpone them as appropriate) 17:41:18 pitti otherwise I'll need to steal your time individually to talk about them 17:41:21 pedro_ tremolux, you're welcome :-) 17:41:28 pitti we just need to ensure that we don't keep lose ends 17:41:41 pitti AOB? 17:41:59 pedro_ o/ 17:42:14 pitti pedro_: please go ahead 17:42:14 seb128 that was an efficient meeting ;-) 17:42:20 didrocks was so quick! :) 17:42:24 pedro_ we still have a few bugs assigned to the team which are targeted to Oneiric : http://status.qa.ubuntu.com/reports/ubuntu-desktop/oneiric.html 17:42:26 pitti well, nothing do discuss so far :) 17:42:38 * Sweetshark looks around: "Where is my meeting?" 17:42:38 pitti (in fact, at some point we should re-discuss the purpose and structure of the meeting; perhaps at UDS) 17:42:39 rodrigo_ pedro_, "a few" is too optimistic :) 17:42:39 pedro_ would be nice if you guys can review the list and start assigning those to individuals 17:42:45 pedro_ so they can be worked ;-) 17:42:54 pedro_ or assign everything to rodrigo_ 17:42:56 pedro_ oops 17:42:59 * rodrigo_ leaves 17:43:11 seb128 yeah, I vote for assigning to rodrigo_ 17:43:15 tremolux haha 17:43:16 seb128 they are mostly g-c-c bugs anyway 17:43:23 rodrigo_ pedro_, hmm, that's a different report from the other one you had 17:43:23 seb128 ;-) 17:43:30 rodrigo_ http://people.canonical.com/~pedro/desktop/canonical-desktop-team-assigned-bug-tasks.html 17:43:33 pedro_ but that's more or less , please review and lets keep the fixing ball rolling 17:43:37 pitti pedro_: you mean the ones assigned to the team? right, I'll have a pass over those 17:43:37 rodrigo_ so, should we follow the other one? 17:43:45 rodrigo_ I was looking at http://people.canonical.com/~pedro/desktop/canonical-desktop-team-assigned-bug-tasks.html all the time 17:43:49 pedro_ pitti, yeah 17:44:11 pedro_ rodrigo_, that's for 'all' the bugs in launchpad, the other is just listing the reports with an Oneiric task 17:44:17 rodrigo_ ah 17:44:18 didrocks pedro_: come on! we will get bugs assigned because of you! Hope you are happy :-) 17:44:26 pitti pedro_: and the "none" ones, too 17:44:46 pedro_ didrocks, oh that's the idea, make me happier ;-) 17:44:55 rodrigo_ the ones for g-c-c and g-s-d can be assigned to me, yes 17:44:58 rodrigo_ the others not :) 17:45:09 pedro_ pitti, indeed 17:45:18 pedro_ pitti, that's all from here 17:45:32 pitti pedro_: thanks; I'll garden the list this week 17:45:37 pitti AOB?
