Weekly Updates & Questions for the Kernel Team (jjohansen)

ttx brought bug 499785 - nic-usb-modules should include asix to the attention of the kernel team as it is needed to help test UEC in laptops environments.

mathiaz mentioned he had asked the kernel team for feedback on dropping the kernel-package package to universe.

Blueprints for post alpha2

Once alpha2 is out, the server team will look at the next set of blueprints to be implemented. Some of them still need more discussion which will happen during the next meeting on January 6th.

The following blueprints will be reviewed:

[14:05] <mathiaz> ttx: I've reviewed the feedback
[14:05] <ttx> http://piware.de/workitems/server/lucid-alpha2/report.html
[14:05] <MootBot> LINK received:  http://piware.de/workitems/server/lucid-alpha2/report.html
[14:05] <mathiaz> ttx: and identified items that need more discussion - I plan to send a specific email for each of them after the vacation

[14:07] <ttx> mathiaz: The 19% completion rate is slightly alarming
[14:07] <mathiaz> ttx: that's why the WI haven't been finished
[14:07] <mathiaz> ttx: right - most of them are actually workinprogress
[14:07] <mathiaz> ttx: and they will be knocked down at the same time
[14:07] <ttx> ok, so you're confident you can still make alpha2 with this ?
[14:08] <mathiaz> ttx: yes
[14:08] <ttx> ok, the other specs are assigned to absent people
[14:08] <ttx> so we'll skip them

[14:17] <mathiaz> ttx: well the bug is already open for karmic

[14:18] <mathiaz> it's not very usefull as of now
[14:19] <mathiaz> that's all for the SRU review
[14:19] <ttx> ok, thx
[14:19] <ttx> [TOPIC] January 6 meeting
[14:19] <MootBot> New Topic:  January 6 meeting
[14:19] <ttx> So the first meeting in January will have a heavy agenda
[14:20] <ttx> We want to discuss some specs that were not targeted to alpha2, specifically:
[14:20] <ttx> server-lucid-aws-client-libraries (mathiaz)
[14:20] <ttx> server-lucid-asterisk-integration (dyfet, Daviey)
[14:20] <ttx> server-lucid-cluster-stack (RoakSoax, ivoks)
[14:20] <ttx> lucid-serverguide (sommer)
[14:20] <ttx> server-lucid-contextualization (stgraber)
[14:20] <ttx> server-lucid-papercuts (ttx)
[14:20] <ttx> to see what can be included in the lucid roadmap, and get community comments o nthem
[14:20]  * Daviey is happy with that :)
[14:21] <ttx> please be there !
[14:21] <nealmcb> thanks :)
[14:21] <mathiaz> ttx: ^^ this is a list of blueprint that still need to be discussed?
[14:21] <mathiaz> ttx: some other blueprints (like server-lucid-idmgmt-*) haven't been targeted for alpha-2
[14:22] <mathiaz> ttx: and they don't appear on the list above
[14:22] <ttx> mathiaz: this is a list of blueprints for which we need some input from the team to decide/continue
[14:22] <mathiaz> ttx: what's the plan with these?
[14:22] <ttx> mathiaz: it's mostly a resource issue, not a technical/consensus one
[14:22] <ttx> mathiaz: so it depends on what we keep from the global list
[14:23] <ttx> the list is the oens where the community is involved, one way or another
[14:23] <ttx> for example, for server-lucid-papercuts we need to discuss the process
[14:23] <ttx> for server-lucid-aws-client-libraries we need to define the most important targets
[14:24] <ttx> for server-lucid-cluster-stack we need some goals for lucid
[14:24] <ttx> etc.
[14:24] <mathiaz> ttx: does this mean that the server-lucid-idmgmt-* bp don't need any discussion?
[14:24] <ttx> mathiaz: no, it means that the spec is sufficiently defined to reach a decision
[14:24] <mathiaz> ttx: ok
[14:24] <ttx> doesn't prevent to discuss it :)
[14:25] <ttx> the list is the ones where we need community input to make progress
[14:25] <ttx> that should be an interesting meeting, be sure to be there :)
[14:25] <ttx> [TOPIC] Open Discussion
[14:25] <MootBot> New Topic:  Open Discussion
