* Daily builds

  • - Pushed my work on bzr-builder to launchpad, and setup ~dailydebs-team to host some PPAs and recipes to test it. There is a bzr-builder PPA there, and the bzr nightly PPA is now done with this tool. - There are some interesting questions still to solve, for instance the packaging of gnome-do is neither mergeable nor nestable in to the upstream code without some machinations. - A little bit of work still needs to be done to run everything from cron without some scripting on behalf of the user.

* Distributed Development

  • - Investigated the state of source package branches on launchpad. - Discussed with Colin how to handle the existing branches during the migration. - Started the work to handle collisions between uploads and commits in the importer.

* Jaunty

  • - ISO testing for the RC. - Archive admin and sponsorship of some last minute fixes for universe. - Cracked the "consolekit prevents switching VTs the first time" bug (#271962) thanks to some hints from Colin.

  • Worked through a bug with a user relating to upgrading from intrepid, and the use of dmraid arrays with LVM. need to do further testing to attempto to reproduce.
