Meeting Minutes


Main Meeting


Open Action Items: (apw) Check up on drdb status in dkms package and kernel

  • Continuing.

Karmic Release Status: Bugs

Leann reported bug status via email to the group as she was on holiday.

Blueprints: kernel-karmic-hwdb-workshop (ogasawara)

Leann on holiday. The folowing is from her forwarded status:

  • See driver stats

  • I wrote a hwdb script to search for all known drivers and the total number of owners. In the future this will also show the total number of bugs related to a specific driver as checkbox just recently provided a way to save the hw profile submission id for apport to link to a bug. Note some drivers will have an "*" by their name indicating LP timed out while gathering the data so the stats will be inaccurate for those.

Blueprints: kernel-karmic-kms (apw)

  • kms is basically business as usual now for intel, fixes coming down the pipe for radeon but we are still waiting for them.
  • rtg asked about GPU lockup issues. Discussion followed and apw will look into it.

Blueprints: kernel-karmic-new-kernel-on-lts (rtg)

  • lts kernel - was ready to upload last week but got side tracked by a trip top St Louis.
  • pgraner wants to hold off moving it into the archive until more testing is done. He will work a plan with QA.

Blueprints: kernel-karmic-review-of-non-upstreamed-code (smb)

Remaining work to be done:

  • lenovo-sl: Partially updated, still has one update pending which needs some more work.
  • lmpcm_usb: Has not been enabled for a while (patch to remove it ready). This Logitech gizmo driver sounds like it should be supported by the normal drivers by now but I have not been validating this.

Blueprints: kernel-karmic-suspend-resume (manjo)

A lot of progress was made on the USB testing last week:

  • bug reporting on failed results
  • no suite selection dialog
  • a 'view report' page at the end of the test
  • the actual XML report file saved correctly
  • Marc is working on supporting HTML tags to descriptions so that we can have RTF for descriptions
  • need to work on uploading test results to server, an RT ticket has been filed for this.

Other Release Tasks: AppArmor (jjohansen)

  • AppArmor closed out bugs affecting security team #419308 #408473 #4084454 #419222 #401931 #419505

  • Turned #359338 over to jdstrand which he finished testing and closed
  • A new bug: #415632 is occuring and need to follow up with Amazon, after we get some more detailed time with it on Centos 5.0. I have the patches applied, but it is currently failing to link on some missing symbols.

Other Release Tasks: ARM-Freescale (amitk, bjf)

  • bjf: I'm in the middle of rebasing mvl-dove to -rc9 and testing, that should be done today (real soon now).
  • amitk: I've rebased imx51 to -rc8 and I am currently testing. Next, I will rebase to -rc9. I am also working on bugs 418238 and 420447.

Status: Karmic (rtg, apw)

We have just rebased to 2.6.31-rc9 based kernel. This is expected to be the last -rc, though so was -rc8. We should have a .31 kernel in before beta, likely by late this week.

Status: Security & bugfix kernels

  • Dapper: 2.6.15-54.79 (security)
  • Hardy: 2.6.24-24.59 (security), 2.6.24-24.60 (proposed)[17] 1/2 verifications, LUM-2.6.24-24.40 (proposed, uploaded today)
  • Intrepid: 2.6.27-14.39 (security), 2.6.27-14.41 (proposed)[8] 9/24 verifications
  • Jaunty 2.6.28-15.49 (security), 2.6.28-15.52 (proposed, uploaded today) 8/17 verifications, 1 regression caused by #228399 fixed by revert.

As always anyone listening/reading here and having bugs fixed in proposed, please update the bug with test information.

Rebasing karmic netbook is in progress. It should be ready tommorrow which finishes this activity. This item is removed from future agendas.
