Clear message

Note: This page is for prioritizing Foundations track UDS-M sessions. For general Maverick planning, please see FoundationsTeam/Maverick/Planning.

Proposed Specs

  1. move CD booting to grub2/gfxterm (ColinWatson)

  2. smoother boot splash via grub2 and a boot framebuffer (ColinWatson, ScottJamesRemnant)

  3. Multiarch Redux

  4. Package Culling - find and aggressively deal with packages whose merges have been lagging for several releases

  5. Upstart Q&A UDS session

  6. Implement the installer redesign spec (EvanDandrea)

  7. 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)

  8. 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).

  9. Download updates while installing (EvanDandrea)

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

  11. btrfs Support (seconded by OEM)

  12. UEFI Firmware Support

  13. OpenJDK6 updates for older Ubuntu releases (MatthiasKlose)

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

  15. Discuss testing (seconded by OEM)

  16. 10.04 Review - hold this early to aid breakout topics, maybe in the first roundtable

  17. Boot Performance/Experience

  18. 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

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

  20. Migration to Python 3 (BarryWarsaw)

  21. Eliminate symlinks for python-[central (BarryWarsaw). This is a duplicate of foundations-lucid-robust-python-packaging.

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

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

  24. Drop the IA64 and SPARC community ports

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

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

  27. packagekit as backend for software-center

  28. Implement fscaps handling in dpkg

  29. Review and Planning for Distributed Development

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

  31. Use xz compression by default for binary packages (proposed by community member)

  32. Use Swap Files Instead of Swap Partitions (carried over from Karmic)

  33. Better archive crawler (carried over from Lucid)

  34. Finish Upstart (seconded by OEM indirectly for their interest in continued boot performance improvements)

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

  36. Enable Hybrid suspend/hibernate by Default (proposed by OEM)

  37. apt Ordering

  38. Software Center Dynamic App View

  39. Software Center Dynamic Testing Improvements

  40. Software Center Screenshots for Third-parties

  41. update-manager Improvements

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

  43. Improving the installation process of Edubuntu

  44. Improved server boot
