- Upgraded mklibs' symbol handling to cope with new binutils/eglibc.
- A good deal of SRU processing and archive administration.
- Spent the latter part of the week upgrading Debian's grub2 packaging to a current snapshot and doing a bug trawl. It's got into a sufficiently bad state to be attracting attention on debian-devel, and nobody else is really in a position to deal with it. Most of the bugs are relevant to Ubuntu as well anyway, and we were going to need a newer snapshot as a base for development work in Maverick.
- Fixed several undefined-behaviour buglets in GRUB, noticed while watching interminable compile runs.
- Fixed grub-probe to work with symbolic links under /dev/mapper as well as with real block devices.
Discussions with Debian over including usb-creator (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=582884)
- Reviewing usb-creator branches from Dmitrijs.
- Meeting with Mark and Michael to discuss the status of the installer redesign specification.
- Specification drafting. All that's left is the work items for the installer redesign spec (blocked on the spec being finished) and getting others to fill in foundations-m-upgrade-and-install-testing.
- Work on foundations-m-upgrade-and-install-testing.
- Hudson research.
- Wrote code to remaster an ISO with the built-from-tree ubiquity, sikuli dependencies, and Hudson slave machinery.
- Wrote a plugin to Hudson to put a slave offline as part of the build step, so we can safely physically reboot slaves and let jobs queue up until they've finished booting.
- Added support for shared locks to the locks-and-latches Hudson plugin. This will let us create both "build ubiquity" and "test ubiquity" jobs that take a lock, but slaves of the "test ubiquity" job can still execute at the same time.
Uploaded a patch to bash-completion and ultimately reverted it when it was found to have some unintended side-effects that I don't believe we can work around (https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/maverick-changes/2010-June/001077.html).
