Review ACTION points from previous meeting

ivoks had to review status of bug 360689. ivoks was not around for the meeting but since the bug is now in "Fix Released" state the action is assumed to be completed.

Jaunty release

ttx reminded everyone that final ISO testing is in full swing, with a few testcases still needing testers. Everyone is welcome to participate ! dendrobates mentioned the need to test the F4/minimal install case as well. The 20090421.1 images are shaping up to be the final 9.04 server release.

Ideas for Karmic

ttx pointed again at the ServerTeam/IdeaPool being open for Karmic development ideas. Another option for more advanced or complex proposals is to submit directly a blueprint in Launchpad and subscribe the ubuntu-server team to it. Last option, mentioned by aruetten, is to use the brainstorm.ubuntu.com server section.

Open Discussion

Ubuntu release parties will be happening very soon. Some server team members will be attending the one in Aalborg, Denmark. kirkland is organizing one at a bar called The Jackalope in Austin, TX.

Agree on next meeting date and time

Next meeting will be on Tuesday, April 28th at 15:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.

[16:03]  * ttx reloads to doublecheck nothing specific was just added
[16:03] <ttx> [TOPIC] Review ACTION points from previous meeting
[16:03] <MootBot> New Topic:  Review ACTION points from previous meeting
[16:04] <ttx> Only unofficial ACTIOn item was the bug 360689 review by ivoks
[16:04] <ubottu> Launchpad bug 360689 in amavisd-new "Default Ubuntu configuration is backscatter source in Jaunty" [Medium,Fix released] https://launchpad.net/bugs/360689
[16:04] <ttx> Which is now in Fix Released state
[16:05] <dendrobates> ivoks doen't seem to be here, so ...
[16:05] <ttx> Anything else from last meeting someone wants to bring up ?
[16:05] <kirkland> o/
[16:05] <ttx> kirkland: yes ?
[16:06] <kirkland> ttx: sorry, late "i'm here"
[16:06] <ttx> Ah :)
[16:06] <ttx> Then, let's proceed to today's hot topic
[16:06] <ttx> [TOPIC] Jaunty release
[16:06] <MootBot> New Topic:  Jaunty release
[16:07] <ttx> So we are now very very close to Jaunty release date, I hope there is no hidden issue someone wants to bring up ?
[16:08] <ttx> ISO testing is in full swing, please help if you can, especially if you own real hardware (as KVM-based testing is quite well covered already)
[16:08] <ttx> The "Virtualization host" test on ubuntu Server amd64 is not covered yet
[16:09] <kirkland> ttx: i was trying to free up some hardware to do that
[16:09] <kirkland> ttx: but my spare box is running hardy + kvm-84, and i don't really want to reimage that at this point
[16:09] <dendrobates> ttx: we also need to test the minimal install.
[16:09] <kirkland> ttx: so i echo your call
[16:09] <dendrobates> ttx: you select it using F4
[16:10] <kirkland> dendrobates: i can do that in a VM
[16:10] <ttx> dendrobates: I did the two "virtual machine install" ones
[16:10] <ttx> dendrobates: aka "jeOS on KVM"
[16:10] <kirkland> ttx: i was also going to do the virtual-host one, using nested kvm
[16:11] <dendrobates> ttx: did the instructions get updated?
[16:11] <ttx> dendrobates: 2009-02-25 23:10:25 by mathiaz
[16:12] <ttx> not exactly sure that answers your question though
[16:13] <ttx> dendrobates: does 20090421.1 shape up to be the final respin, from where you stand ?
[16:13] <dendrobates> ttx: I'll check, and fix if necessary
[16:13] <dendrobates> ttx: yes, I've done a couple dozen installs the last two days with no errors
[16:14] <ttx> Okay. Anything else on the Jaunty release front ?
[16:15] <ttx> then...
[16:15] <ttx> [TOPIC] Ideas for Karmic
[16:15] <MootBot> New Topic:  Ideas for Karmic
[16:16] <ttx> i'll echo last week call for ideas, feel free to fill https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ServerTeam/IdeaPool with your thoughts
[16:16] <ttx> If that's something more complex or advanced than an idea, you can also submit a blueprint and subscribe the ubuntu-server team to it.
[16:17] <aruetten> I got this URL http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/server/ for  Ideas for Karmic
[16:17] <ttx> aruetten: right, that's another source we look at.
[16:18] <aruetten> ok
