20101602 Meeting Agenda

Outstanding actions from last meeting

amitk to meet with keybuk on automated boot tests

  • <amitk> Didn't really talk to keybuk about that in particular. But I now have the info necessary to start my own PXE booting automated installs.

Lucid Release Status: Bugs (Release Meeting Bugs / RC Milestoned Bugs / Release Targeted Bugs

Lucid Release Status: Milestoned Features

Lucid Release Status: Bugs with patches attached

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-bug-handling (JFo)

No update, all items are still in progress.

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-review-of-ubuntu-delta (apw)

Followed up on "under-discussion" patches, this led to four patches being dropped as they are no longer required.

Blueprints: kerne-lucid-kernel-config-review (apw)

Benchmarking pulling out PATA/SATA controllers appears to indicate there is a time penalty, we therefore need to look at the most common controllers to retain.

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-kms (sconklin / apw)

There is much discussion regarding the quality of KMS for ATI Radeon. It seems that upstream is not interested in supporting KMS for ATI on 2.6.32. So far we have only one confirmed broken card, and we may have a small patch stack to make that workable. As we are already backporting Nouveau should we extend that to ATI; discussions continue.

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

I am reworking patch as per amitk's comments, will submit soon.

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-apparmor-development (jjohansen)

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-boot-performance (apw, csurbhi)

We remain around the 1.6s to rootfs mark. We have one outstanding bug to do with new locking to protect USB strings which have become mutable as a result of the introduction of wireless USB hubs. Patches to fix this issue using RCU techniques are in testing.

Other Release Tasks: Lucid Audio Support (bjf)

I've rolled the alsa c-o-d for karmic as well as lucid in the last week. It's obvious that they are being used, which is good news.

Other Release Tasks: Lucid Better Power Mgt (amitk)

Nothing new to report.

Other Release Tasks: EC2 Lucid Kernel Status (jjohansen)

Looking good we had a small update regression last week that should be fixed now Bug #520015 (haven't tested) . Launchpad bug 520015 in linux-meta-ec2 "bad dependencies on karmic linux-ec2, linux-image-ec2" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/520015

Status: Lucid (apw)

Lucid is now updated to stable v2.6.32.8 and to include a couple more [sigh] Ironlake patches. Light testing it seems no worse than previously. Progress was pretty good over the sprint week with us tending towards the trend-line (ie. catching up). Most of the prime features seem on track, graphics is still problematic.
