17:31:39        pitti   so according to the weekly summary this was clearly a LibO fixing week :)
17:31:42        pedro_  lut seb128 :-)
17:31:43        pitti   Sweetshark: (nice job)
17:31:51        pitti   and new unity with some umphteen fixes, yay
17:32:05        pitti   kenvandine: anything to discuss partner-wise?
17:32:09        kenvandine      yeah
17:32:14        pitti   I guess the music scope is the big thing this week?
17:32:28        kenvandine      not really... round of bug fix releases for indicators coming
17:32:49        rodrigo_        seb128, yes, but libnm-gtk doesn't seem to be available in the repo, will ask him after the meeting
17:33:07        pitti   rodrigo_: just binNEWed it an hour or so ago
17:33:12         *      didrocks runs will bb in 40 minutes hopefully
17:33:13        rodrigo_        pitti, ah
17:33:19        pitti   didrocks: thanks for the wiki update
17:33:20        didrocks        pitti: I'll take care of glibmm and gtkmm after
17:33:25        seb128  didrocks, see you
17:33:31        kenvandine      that is all i have
17:33:32        pitti   didrocks: gtkmm3.0 is already in ubuntu:gtkmm3.0
17:33:47        pitti   didrocks: (not yet test-built, of course), but I can continue this tomorrow morning
17:33:55        didrocks        pitti: ok, thanks :)
17:34:01        pitti   kenvandine: bug 851691 is a bit of a concern
17:34:03        ubot2   Launchpad bug 851691 in unity-lens-music "[FFE] Add support for U1 in the music lens" [High,Fix committed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/851691
17:34:10        pitti   it's veeeery late, and hasn't really been tested yet
17:34:14        didrocks        I guess this one is on my plate :)
17:34:17        pitti   I understand it's in ubuntu-desktop?
17:34:28        didrocks        pitti: it's basically the one in the ubuntu-desktop ppa for a while
17:34:37        didrocks        but I agree it's late
17:34:51        tkamppeter      hi
17:35:23        pitti   didrocks: are there some testing instructions somewhere, so that we can test this from the PPA a bit?
17:35:42        didrocks        pitti: I guess I need the release of the last version (the one which doesn't need the environment variable then)
17:35:52        didrocks        pitti: and then, yeah, I can give you some instructions for tomorrow morning
17:36:00        didrocks        I tested, found some unity crashes, they are fixed now in oneiric
17:36:16        didrocks        and I listed some bugs that needed to be fixed before entering oneiric (not related to the FFe itself)
17:36:19        pitti   didrocks: thanks, that's appreciated, and would help for the FFE
17:36:21        didrocks        they are all fixed after 2 weeks
17:36:45        didrocks        just to tell it's been tested, but more testing is appreciated, right, will setup that tomorrow once I get the release :)
17:37:38         *      didrocks really runs now, ttyl
17:38:47        pitti   ok, thanks
17:38:59        pitti   anything else that we need to discuss?
17:39:02        cyphermox       yup
17:39:25        pitti   cyphermox: go :)
17:39:29        cyphermox       just got wind of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=736489 , not sure if it applies to us, but fyi :)
17:39:38        ubot2   bugzilla.redhat.com bug 736489 in glib2 "[ppc64] wrong mapping for G_TYPE_ENUM to libffi type" [Urgent,New]
17:40:45        pitti   does that apply to us? the powerpc binaries are all 32 bit, I though
17:40:54        cyphermox       it might on arm
17:41:30         *      Sweetshark grumbles. missed the praise because I wanted to get the patches for ubuntu4 to fix commited before the meeting ...
17:41:30        pitti   hm, arm is little-endian and 32 bit
17:41:42        cyphermox       also, NM has a pretty annoying bug right now: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/network-manager/+bug/856333
17:41:43        ubot2   Ubuntu bug 856333 in network-manager "(oneiric) wired connection unnaturally slow" [Medium,In progress]
17:42:09        cyphermox       any help would be welcome, but it seems to be muchly an issue in libnl, I'm working on it and it was submitted upstream
17:42:17        pitti   cyphermox: I've seen the same issue for years, I don't think it's new; did it get worse?
17:42:37        cyphermox       pitti: this is with connecting wifi and wired at the same time
17:42:43        seb128  oh, that's a nm issue? I switched to wifi this week, I though my router was broken
17:42:44        cyphermox       it definitely did work in Natty
17:43:05        seb128  router or cable or something
17:43:14        cyphermox       seb128: routes are missing a "metric X" value; which causes something like 80% packet loss, if not 100%
17:43:21        pitti   cyphermox: I was once connected to both eth and wifi at the same time in natty, and it did exactly that -- half of the TCP connectinos were broken
17:43:28        seb128  didn't have time to investigate yet, it's just that wifi works fine
17:43:31        cyphermox       pitti: WFM ;)
17:43:50        cyphermox       adding the metric makes it work too, some maybe you were seeing something else too
17:44:31        cyphermox       anyway, that's all I had
17:46:02        Sweetshark      oh oh, I got another one: I announce my candidacy for the TDF BoD http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Candidacy-for-Board-of-Directors-seat-Bjoern-Michaelsen-td3372142.html
17:46:08        pitti   ok, good luck with debugging that then!
17:46:45        seb128  rodrigo_, you should do a reminder for your motu application there ;-)
17:47:02        rodrigo_        seb128, yes, I need the endorsements 1st
17:47:23        seb128  rodrigo_, well I was suggesting that it was a good time to remind people about your wikipage :)
17:47:30        rodrigo_        ah, ok :)
17:47:53        rodrigo_        please endorse me at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RodrigoMoya/MOTUApplication and your salaries will be increased!!!
17:48:01        rodrigo_        </electoral_campaign>
17:48:01        kenvandine      woot
17:48:04         *      kenvandine jumps on that
17:48:11        pitti   Sweetshark: nice! sounds like a lot of sitting in meetings?
17:49:48        pitti   AOB? if not, I'll let everyone go back to fixing oneiric :)
17:49:58        pedro_  o/
17:50:01        pedro_  just an small item
17:50:02        pitti   pedro_: go ahead, please
17:50:10        pedro_  we need someone to please look at bug 851044
17:50:12        ubot2   Launchpad bug 851044 in banshee "Banshee.exe crashed with SIGABRT in g_cclosure_marshal_VOID__VOID() / while using Ubuntu 1 Store." [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/851044
17:50:15        Sweetshark      yes, and getting them to sign off that the foundation money is needed for my private yacht ...
17:50:29        pitti   Sweetshark: ah, of course
17:50:31        pedro_  it's making banshee crash while using U1 , not sure if its a webkit issue or mono
17:50:39        pedro_  so expertise is needed there ;-)
17:51:27        pitti   is there a reproducer?
17:51:48        pedro_  its easy to reproduce just following the steps on the description
17:51:56        pitti   fortunately we have so many mono developers around (oh wait..)
17:51:57        pedro_  aka scrolling while in U1
17:52:08        pedro_  lol
17:52:17        rodrigo_        pedro_, if it's the music store, dobey is working on it, dobey?
17:52:21        pedro_  I thought seb128 was a mono developer
17:52:25        pitti   presumably the music store then
17:52:25         *      pedro_ run away
17:52:35        tkamppeter      pitti, have you seen my suggestion about buying printers for UDSes and sprints?
17:52:39        seb128  pedro_, yeah, better to run
17:52:42        rodrigo_        :)
17:52:46        seb128  I've no clue about mono ;-)
17:53:07        pitti   tkamppeter: I did; I think it's a great idea, but we need to discuss that with IS; I think mail is better there
