Proposed Specs

  1. [ACCEPTED] 10.04 Review - hold this early to aid breakout topics, maybe in the first roundtable

  2. [ACCEPTED] Software Center Dynamic App View

  3. [ACCEPTED] Software Center Dynamic Testing Improvements

  4. [ACCEPTED] Software Center Screenshots for Third-parties

  5. [ACCEPTED] packagekit as backend for software-center

  6. [ACCEPTED] Upstart Q&A UDS session

  7. [ACCEPTED] Finish Upstart (seconded by OEM indirectly for their interest in continued boot performance improvements)

  8. [ACCEPTED] Multiarch Support (may not need further discussion?)

  9. [ACCEPTED] btrfs Support (seconded by OEM)

  10. [ACCEPTED] move CD booting to grub2/gfxterm (ColinWatson)

  11. [ACCEPTED] smoother boot splash via grub2 and a boot framebuffer (ColinWatson, ScottJamesRemnant)

  12. [ACCEPTED] Package Culling - find and aggressively deal with packages whose merges have been lagging for several releases

  13. [ACCEPTED] Discuss testing (seconded by OEM)

  14. [ACCEPTED] Implement the installer redesign spec (EvanDandrea)

  15. [ACCEPTED] Refactor update-notifier - make update-notifier a more modular design (probably with vala), it has out-grown to be a update-notifier since some time (MichaelVogt)

  16. [ACCEPTED] Remove Demoted Packages on Upgrade - We need to explore the removal of demoted packages on upgrade (all, only auto-installed ones, only default installed ones, only unused... how to detect).

  17. Download updates while installing (EvanDandrea)

  18. [ACCEPTED] D-Bus Refactor of release-upgrader - discuss refactoring the release-upgrader backend as a dbus service to improve reliability/responsiveness (MichaelVogt)

  19. [ACCEPTED] Boot Performance/Experience (seconded by OEM)

  20. [ACCEPTED] UEFI Firmware Support

  21. [ACCEPTED] OpenJDK6 updates for older Ubuntu releases (MatthiasKlose)

  22. [ACCEPTED] Spring Clean - right after an LTS release is a good time for an aggressive cleanup of things we don't need or that should be extensively refactored

  23. [ACCEPTED] Automated transition testing framework (build, run upstream unit test, 2to3, report on ftbfs and test failures, against any/every python version) (BarryWarsaw)

  24. [ACCEPTED] Python Robustification - this blueprint includes the two below for ease of UDS session scheduling, and it carries over (though likely with different work items) the a similar Lucid era spec.

    1. Eliminate symlinks for python-central and python-support using PEP 3147? Needs support for extensions. (And mostly done for python-central). (BarryWarsaw).

    2. Freezing (e.g. cx_freeze) critical dist upgrade tools? (BarryWarsaw)

  25. [ACCEPTED] Python Versions - this blueprint includes the two below for ease of UDS session scheduling

    1. Python 2.7 (BarryWarsaw) That should be tested before UDS as a basis for a decision.

    2. Migration to Python 3 (BarryWarsaw)

  26. Drop the IA64 and SPARC community ports

  27. Toolchain decisions for Maverick. May be followed up with architecture specific sessions. (MatthiasKlose)

    1. Compile for i686 as the default on i386 - instead of i486

  28. [ACCEPTED] Review and Planning for Distributed Development

  29. Use Energy Star compliance power settings by default (proposed by OEM)

  30. [ACCEPTED] Use Swap Files Instead of Swap Partitions (carried over from Karmic)

  31. Better archive crawler (carried over from Lucid)

  32. Improved Platform-Internationalization Collaboration (seconded by OEM)

  33. update-manager Improvements

  34. Speed up downloads of .debs by using apt-sync

Lower priority, include only if they will fit

  1. CD build speed - CD build speed has been creeping back up of late; attack it again

  2. Improving the installation process of Edubuntu - this probably belongs in a community session; will ping Jono; Foundations can make sure someone is present for the discussion, however

  3. apt Ordering

  4. Enable Hybrid suspend/hibernate by Default (proposed by OEM, but doesn't seem viable given current kernel support)

Accepted Sessions


Declined Sessions

  1. Improved server boot (superseded by Server boot and upstart)

  2. Use xz compression by default for binary packages (proposed by community member) (we aren't going to use it by default, and we'll naturally get elective support by way of a dpkg merge)
