Meeting Minutes for 2008-02-01
Start: 20:04 UTC
End: 21:39 UTC
Richard Johnson - meeting chairperson
Agenda item added by Scott Kitterman.
Seeing as the Universe Freeze has now been combined into the feature freeze, Scott provided the idea that the team name for motu-uvf should change to reflect this, also limiting the confusion that may take place since there will no longer be a uvf. With that, Scott provided 3 ideas for names:
After further discussion a vote was called to order with the following question to be answered: "Do we change the name of motu-uvf to motu-release?". The following are the results:
With this vote and its results, the motu-uvf team will now look at taking on the name of motu-release from this point forward.
Switch from Interdiff to .diff.gz
Agenda item added by Emmet Hikory.
Seeing as the process of utilizing an Interdiff for new upstream releases didn't receive a warm response and created some confusion between MOTU and future MOTU candidates, Emmet proposed that the process for creating a diff between the old package and the new upstream release, be created using .diff.gz instead. Scott Kitterman took over the topic from the beginning as Emmet was afk. Scott started off by communicating the reasoning above. After about 10 minutes into the briefing, Emmet joined the meeting and took it from there.
After further discussion a vote was called to order with the following question to be answered: "Switch from Interdiff to diff.gz for new upstream candiadtes?". The following are the results:
With this vote and its results, the preferred process, which is not a policy, will be to create and link to a .diff.gz for new upstream releases which are not yet in Debian.
