17:31:11 pitti so first, congrats everyone for oneiric 17:31:20 seb128 kenvandine, not sure it's a wow, he keeps complaining about bugs this week :p 17:31:24 pitti so it became a reasonably usable and stable release after all :) 17:31:26 kenvandine haha 17:31:27 seb128 yesterday banshee, today libreoffice 17:31:28 seb128 ;-) 17:31:38 seb128 pitti, \o/ 17:31:44 seb128 works pretty fine for me as well 17:31:48 seb128 install and runtime ;-) 17:31:52 mterry hi 17:31:57 pitti still needs to pass the WAF test 17:32:02 pitti (here at least) 17:32:20 njpatel seb128, I only recognise the French mafia, they are the ones that rule my life 17:32:28 seb128 njpatel, ;-) 17:32:31 pitti kenvandine: anything to discuss for partner this week? 17:32:32 kenvandine njpatel, and don't you forget it 17:32:39 chrisccoulson hi 17:32:43 * pitti hopes kenvandine doesn't have a list of "ten things utterly broken in oneiric" 17:32:54 kenvandine pitti, it's on the wiki, tedg just got back from a week sprinting then summit over the weekend 17:32:57 njpatel chrisccoulson, your multi monitor bug is fixed courtesy of Trevinho 17:33:04 pitti ah, reloading FTW 17:33:08 chrisccoulson njpatel, excellent, thanks 17:33:08 kenvandine he will get me a list of planned SRUs later today and i'll link them on the wiki 17:33:16 pitti nice 17:33:20 kenvandine and i have dobey's u1 fix i am about to sponsor 17:33:24 kenvandine that is all i have right now 17:33:25 pitti didrocks: thanks for the unity update 17:33:32 pitti new SRU looking good, lots of +1 already 17:33:41 didrocks yeah, I leverage the french forum :-) 17:33:56 didrocks so that njpatel knows more that he is really ruled by the french mafia :) 17:34:03 didrocks will do the same tomorrow with unity 17:34:22 pitti 14 left on http://status.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-oneiric/canonical-desktop-team.html, but I was monitoring that, nothign serious there 17:34:26 pitti will just postpone to P 17:34:39 njpatel nooo 17:34:58 pitti so we got 389 work items done, 17:35:03 njpatel I don't mess with the French forum. As gord says, there are a lot of of you. 17:35:18 pitti I'll do some stats over the past cycles to have an estimate what we can go for in precise 17:35:45 pitti so, nothing from me this week except for "go out and test images and SRUs" :) 17:35:58 pitti does anyone have something we should discuss? 17:36:19 Sweetshark pitti: no more updates, not even security ones for OpenOffice.org available, even if Apache OOo would come around one day it would be completely different. 17:36:59 Sweetshark pitti: so maybe consider backporting Libreoffice to lucid, maverick? 17:37:15 pitti yuck 17:37:20 Sweetshark heh 17:37:26 pitti Sweetshark: you don't think that the odd security update can be backported? 17:37:42 pitti there haven't been terribly many USNs for OO.o/LibO so far 17:38:43 Sweetshark pitti: Im not sure, but LO has gone through some major code cleanups since OOo times. 17:38:43 pitti if the affected part of LibO didn't change fundamentally, then the patches ought to be backportable; and if it did, it might not even apply 17:39:08 pitti Sweetshark: do we have any currently outstanding CVEs which we could look at? 17:40:17 mdeslaur uhm, security isn't a valid reason to get LO into old releases 17:40:36 Sweetshark pitti: http://blog.documentfoundation.org/2011/10/05/the-document-foundation-publishes-details-of-libreoffice-3-4-3-security-fixes/ CVE-2011-2713 would likely apply also to OOo 17:40:37 ubot2 Sweetshark: ** RESERVED ** This candidate has been reserved by an organization or individual that will use it when announcing a new security problem. When the candidate has been publicized, the details for this candidate will be provided. (http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-2713) 17:40:52 pitti chrisccoulson: for "Review update plan for extensions with security team", has this been discussed? 17:41:23 chrisccoulson pitti - no, but there isn't much to discuss anymore. i've got that all pretty much figured out 17:41:34 pitti chrisccoulson: ah, good; setting to "done" then 17:41:38 chrisccoulson thanks 17:41:57 pitti Sweetshark: is that such a huge patch? 17:42:29 pitti Sweetshark: this sounds like the kind of issue which is usually an one-liner with an additional boundary check 17:43:00 Sweetshark pitti: no, IIRC those patches are rather small. 17:43:27 Sweetshark pitti: however, WMF exploits might not even work on linux anyway. 17:43:53 pitti Sweetshark: due to our fortified toolchain? 17:44:47 Sweetshark pitti: But I am bringing the topic more in a general sense -- maybe needs a more careful discussion on UDS. 17:45:20 pitti Sweetshark: can do; my gut feeling is that we should just apply the security patches and otherwise leave it alone; we could consider a PPA for people who really want it, of course 17:46:10 Sweetshark pitti: well, or because we dont do anything with the WMFs anyway, while on windows the exploit might wreck havoc with windows services ... 17:46:39 pitti @all: any other topics we need to discuss? otherwise let's adjourn 17:47:16 pitti Sweetshark: perhaps; but in principle such attacks work under linux, too, just with different code, of course, and the fortified toolchain makes stuff a lot harder in many cases 17:49:12 pitti ok, so thanks everyone! 17:49:17 pitti let's release that 17:49:25 pitti let's release that sleepy big cat
