Assigned and to-be-assigned bugs

Weekly Updates & Questions for the QA Team (soren)

  • We need help to get through the list of ISOs to test
  • [ACTION] mathias to publish request for iso testing in our

    • regular blog/community channels
  • soren pointed out that some of the test cases are slightly outdated
    • or not complete. We should get these updated. Please update as you go through.
  • soren is running automated tests of the default install, the bind9
    • test case, the lamp test caes, and the mail test case on i386 and amd64

Weekly Updates & Questions for the Kernel Team (jjohansen)

  • 494565 is on jjohansen's list for next week.

  • kernel was frozen on friday and most changes were in thursday
  • server-lucid-other-cloud-providers

    • is targetted for alpha3, there could be kernel issues running on rackspace's environment


  • jib added the perl modlues to the wiki, nijaba recomments tarzan for
    • PHP
  • perl/python/php packages will be targeted for alpha3. other
    • languages likely out unless esily packagable or community efforts

Weekly SRU review

Using bzr for package maintenance (zul)

  • DistributedDevelopment/Documentation

  • mathiaz responded to smoser's question, suggesting that after your
    • "done" with a single fix branch you can mark it merged in the launchpad UI. That will then have it not shown on your default list, but is possibly better than deleting it.
  • zul (and others) want to encourage people more to use bzr branches.

Open Discussion

  • mail-stack blueprint was formally re-assigned to ivoks (from ScotK).
    • ivoks suggests that all except debconf integration should be doable for alpha3. If it can't be handled there, it would need a
  • FeatureFreeze Exception.

Agree on next meeting date and time

Next meeting will be on Wednesday, Jan 20 14:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.

01/13/10 09:00:41 <MootBot>     New Topic:  last weeks action points
01/13/10 09:00:51 -->   Italian_Plumber (n=dshere@h128.96.82.166.static.ip.windstream.net) has joined #ubuntu-meeting
01/13/10 09:00:52 <jiboumans>   i'll take the ones that belong to a blueprint when we discuss those
01/13/10 09:01:00 <--   lamont has quit ("Coyote finally caught me")
01/13/10 09:01:14 <jiboumans>   ACTION: SorenHansen to solicit packages that lend them selves well to nightly builds
01/13/10 09:01:17 <jiboumans>   soren: ^
01/13/10 09:01:32 <soren>       jiboumans: Hm... I don't remember /how/ I did it, but I did get some feedback.
01/13/10 09:01:35 <soren>       :)
01/13/10 09:01:42 <jiboumans>   soren++
01/13/10 09:01:45 <jiboumans>   please shae :)
01/13/10 09:01:46 <jiboumans>   *share
01/13/10 09:02:05 <soren>       The only extra ones I got were:
01/13/10 09:02:08 -->   SWAT (n=swat@ubuntu/member/swat) has joined #ubuntu-meeting
01/13/10 09:02:24 -->   lamont (n=lamont@mix.mmjgroup.com) has joined #ubuntu-meeting
01/13/10 09:02:24 <soren>       python2.6 and atlas.
01/13/10 09:02:49 <soren>       I'll get those added to the nighly builds shortly.
01/13/10 09:02:54 <soren>       Like now
01/13/10 09:03:00 <jiboumans>   you agree there's mileage in those?
01/13/10 09:03:41 <soren>       If they run a test suite during build, I don't see any harm in detecting if they start failing.
01/13/10 09:04:02 <jiboumans>   fair enough
01/13/10 09:04:02 <soren>       I still haven't gotten round to the reporting part of things.
01/13/10 09:04:11 <jiboumans>   that's the interesting bit though :)
01/13/10 09:04:11 <soren>       I get an e-mail when stuff fails to build, but that's about as far as it gets.
01/13/10 09:04:17 <soren>       Quite :)
01/13/10 09:04:25 -->   RainCT (n=RainCT@ubuntu/member/pdpc.student.rainct) has joined #ubuntu-meeting
01/13/10 09:04:29 <jiboumans>   you still have a bit of time to wrap that up though
01/13/10 09:04:33 <jiboumans>   please let us know how you progress ;)
01/13/10 09:04:35 <jiboumans>   moving on
01/13/10 09:04:39 <soren>       mathiaz suggested using a team ppa and interested parties can join the team and thus get the build failure e-mails as well.
01/13/10 09:04:47 <soren>       I'll set that up.
01/13/10 09:05:03 <jiboumans>   soren: good step. i'd also love to see an overview/bugs coming out of that (maybe a nice to have though)
01/13/10 09:05:19 <soren>       jiboumans: Noted.
01/13/10 09:05:22 -->   jsalisbury (n=chatzill@ has joined #ubuntu-meeting
01/13/10 09:05:38 <jiboumans>   ACTION: ScottMoser to investigate publishing new AMIs
01/13/10 09:05:40 <jiboumans>   smoser: ^
01/13/10 09:06:10 <smoser>      no movement on that.  eric tested the us-west-1 nightly some and his results were favorable.
01/13/10 09:06:30 <jiboumans>   ok, push that action to next meeting then
01/13/10 09:06:35 <jiboumans>   alpha2's more important at this point
01/13/10 09:06:51 -->   huats (n=chris@ubuntu/member/huats) has joined #ubuntu-meeting
01/13/10 09:06:56 <smoser>      but i've not done anything myself. long term, this falls into RefreshPolicy and QA and such are involved. 
01/13/10 09:07:02 <jiboumans>   agreed
01/13/10 09:07:02 <--   huats has quit (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
01/13/10 09:07:10 <jiboumans>   we'll pick it up after this milestone
01/13/10 09:07:19 <jiboumans>   the remainign action points are related to blueprints
01/13/10 09:07:33 <jiboumans>   we'll get to those in the alpha3 section
01/13/10 09:07:43 <--   Italian_Plumber (n=dshere@h128.96.82.166.static.ip.windstream.net) has left #ubuntu-meeting
01/13/10 09:07:43 <jiboumans>   ttx: your turn for the alpha2 deliverables
01/13/10 09:07:50 <ttx> right

01/13/10 09:08:06 <ttx> So Alpha2 milestone will be released tomorrow
01/13/10 09:08:21 <ttx> There are a few work items still targeted to that milestone
01/13/10 09:08:42 <ttx> I want to make sure they are still on track, or we shoudl defer them
01/13/10 09:09:02 <ttx> mathiaz:

01/13/10 09:11:45 <mathiaz>     ttx: wasn't that supposed to be for alpha3?
01/13/10 09:11:46 <ttx> right, the spec isn't for alpha2 anyway
01/13/10 09:11:56 <smoser>      i moved my "package stuff" to 'DONE' (as its in now).
01/13/10 09:12:06 <jiboumans>   ttx: ACTION Mathiaz to send out AWS Client lib RFC (that's what that relates to)
01/13/10 09:12:09 <ttx> jiboumans: ok for me to move to alpha3, even if we want it very soon ?
01/13/10 09:12:20 <jiboumans>   ttx: move which one?
01/13/10 09:12:28 <mathiaz>     jiboumans: nijaba sent an email about it
01/13/10 09:12:29 <ttx> the aws ones

01/13/10 09:13:35 -->   huats (n=chris@ubuntu/member/huats) has joined #ubuntu-meeting
01/13/10 09:13:53 <ttx> the most important one was in fact already fixed
01/13/10 09:13:59 <ttx> (the ec2-init one)
01/13/10 09:14:06 <ttx> just didn't autoclose on upload
01/13/10 09:14:16 *     jjohansen fades in (sorry I am late)
01/13/10 09:14:19 <ttx> that leaves the MIRs...
01/13/10 09:14:28 -->   Lure (n=quassel@ubuntu/member/lure) has joined #ubuntu-meeting
01/13/10 09:14:31 <ttx> And the samba one (bug 462169)
01/13/10 09:14:34 <ubottu>      Launchpad bug 462169 in samba "nmbd dies on startup when network interfaces are not up yet" [High,In progress] https://launchpad.net/bugs/462169
01/13/10 09:15:18 <ttx> zul: the pastedeploy MIR bug should be targeted for alpha3 now
01/13/10 09:15:18 <zul> i have to update the MIR ones
01/13/10 09:15:26 <zul> ttx: okies
01/13/10 09:15:27 <jiboumans>   ttx: the samba one has added: "This bug was fixed in the package samba - 2:3.4.0-3ubuntu5.3"
01/13/10 09:15:46 <ttx> taht's the karmic SRU, we want it fixed in lucid as well
01/13/10 09:15:56 *     ttx doublechecks
01/13/10 09:16:11 <jiboumans>   ttx: you're correct. lucid is set to 'in progress'
01/13/10 09:16:20 <zul> i can do that as well
01/13/10 09:16:43 <ttx> samba bug -> <slangasek> ttx: oh, I have that listed under foundations ;)  Yes, I'll have that fixed beginning of next week
01/13/10 09:16:51 <ttx> that is.. yesterday
01/13/10 09:16:58 <ttx> slangasek: defer to alpha3 ?
01/13/10 09:17:20 <zul> the proper fix is to have an upstart job imho
01/13/10 09:17:28 <ttx> last topic is ISO testing
01/13/10 09:17:36 <ttx> we ahve candidates in, please test them
01/13/10 09:17:52 *     soren is doing a bunch of that.

01/13/10 09:18:04 <soren>       If anyone tries an LVM install on real hardware, please let me know the results.
01/13/10 09:18:05 <jiboumans>   [NOTE] ISO testing candidates are in. please test them!
01/13/10 09:18:29 <ttx> and I hope to have time to do the UEC cloud images as well
01/13/10 09:18:41 <ttx> make sure the rest is covered
01/13/10 09:18:51 <ttx> afaict no respin is planned now

01/13/10 09:19:30 <ttx> yay
01/13/10 09:19:51 <ttx> jiboumans: alpha2 done, you're on for alpha3
01/13/10 09:19:56 <jiboumans>   [TOPIC] Alpha3 subcycle planning (jib)
01/13/10 09:19:56 <MootBot>     New Topic:  Alpha3 subcycle planning (jib)
01/13/10 09:20:07 <jiboumans>   We're trying to get our alpha3 roadmap in order by the end of the week
01/13/10 09:20:31 <jiboumans>   as you know, we've only planned until alpha2 so far, and we're now filling in the remaining work for alpha3
01/13/10 09:21:06 <jiboumans>   for that we're collecting feedback as we go. We've made a preliminary pass from the server team, which is reflected in launchpad: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/~jib/+specs?role=approver
01/13/10 09:21:22 <jiboumans>   preliminary workitems can be seen here: http://macaroni.ubuntu.com/~pitti/workitems/canonical-server-lucid-alpha-3.html
01/13/10 09:21:56 <jiboumans>   any feedback or opinions you have are welcome on the mailinglist :)
01/13/10 09:22:08 <jiboumans>   i'd like to quickly focus on the community driven blueprints:
01/13/10 09:22:28 <jiboumans>   [TOPIC] server-lucid-cluster-stack
01/13/10 09:22:29 <MootBot>     New Topic:  server-lucid-cluster-stack
01/13/10 09:22:34 <jiboumans>   ivoks: ^
01/13/10 09:22:40 <jiboumans>   ACTION ivoks to update server-lucid-cluster-stack with lucid (and alpha3) goals
01/13/10 09:22:41 <ivoks>       well, we have a good progress there
01/13/10 09:22:46 <ivoks>       beta quality packages are there
01/13/10 09:22:52 <ivoks>       blueprint was updated
01/13/10 09:22:56 <jiboumans>   ivoks++
01/13/10 09:22:58 <ivoks>       and we are in the testhing phase
01/13/10 09:23:01 <ivoks>       testing
01/13/10 09:23:04 <jiboumans>   saw your mails on the list; looks like very good stuff
01/13/10 09:23:08 *     ttx hugs his favorite croatian
01/13/10 09:23:13 <ivoks>       :)
01/13/10 09:23:34 <jiboumans>   ... i read that as crustacean...
01/13/10 09:23:57 <ivoks>       so, this should be ready for alpha3
01/13/10 09:24:05 <nijaba>      \o/
01/13/10 09:24:05 <jiboumans>   ivoks: we're particularly interested in your experience of redhat cluster suite vs pacemaker & co
01/13/10 09:24:19 <jiboumans>   ivoks: when do you think you could tell us a bit more about that?
01/13/10 09:24:22 <ivoks>       jiboumans: atm pacemaker looks very very nice
01/13/10 09:24:36 <ivoks>       well, we had a discussion about it at uds
01/13/10 09:24:52 <ivoks>       pacemaker is only one part of future, yet unnamed, cluster stack
01/13/10 09:25:06 <ivoks>       there's also cluster-glue, cluster-agents, etc...
01/13/10 09:25:25 <ivoks>       basicaly, everybody is working on common cluster stack (all distros and some vendors)
01/13/10 09:25:47 <ivoks>       will that kill rhcs... i doubt it, but it should be better at some point
01/13/10 09:26:08 <ivoks>       problem with rhcs in ubuntu now is that very few people use it nad even less know how it works
01/13/10 09:26:16 <ivoks>       pacemaker is much easier to setup
01/13/10 09:26:38 <jiboumans>   ivoks: i think you're aware of the promotion/demotion discusion around redhat cluster, so I'm sure mathiaz and zul are very interested in the input you can provide there
01/13/10 09:26:44 <ttx> ivoks: could you explain what the different components do ?
01/13/10 09:27:09 <ivoks>       i could copy paste :)
01/13/10 09:27:14 <ivoks>       http://www.linux-ha.org/wiki/Cluster_Glue
01/13/10 09:27:17 <MootBot>     LINK received:  http://www.linux-ha.org/wiki/Cluster_Glue
01/13/10 09:27:35 <ttx> "Glue is everything that is not the cluster messaging layer (Heartbeat), nor the cluster resource manager (Pacemaker), nor a Resource Agent. "
01/13/10 09:27:38 <ttx> makes sense
01/13/10 09:27:41 <ivoks>       Cluster Glue is a set of libraries, tools and utilities suitable for the Heartbeat/Pacemaker cluster stack. In essence, Glue is everything that is not the cluster messaging layer (Heartbeat), nor the cluster resource manager (Pacemaker), nor a Resource Agent.
01/13/10 09:28:04 <ivoks>       so, idea is that future rhcs and future (let's call it) pacemaker cluster
01/13/10 09:28:13 <ivoks>       share common libraries and agents
01/13/10 09:28:38 <ttx> ivoks: that's future development, not part of your current spec iiuc
01/13/10 09:28:53 <ivoks>       our spec is 'follow what's going on'
01/13/10 09:29:03 <ttx> that's not a spec, that's an interest
01/13/10 09:29:07 <ttx> :P

01/13/10 09:29:26 <mathiaz>     ivoks: will the pacemaker-based stack be feature equivalent to rhcs in the lucid timeframe?
01/13/10 09:30:01 <ivoks>       hard to say cause they don't share the same philosophy

01/13/10 09:30:18 <ivoks>       for example, rhcs belives in quorum disks, while pacemaker doesn't

01/13/10 09:30:51 <soren>       ocfs?

01/13/10 09:42:32 <jiboumans>   also: ACTION: ThierryCarrez to send background mail on papercuts project for next weeks discussion
01/13/10 09:42:43 <ttx> "The idea is to spend time during this less-featureful development cycle
01/13/10 09:42:44 <ttx> to fix server usability issues that make Ubuntu Server less
01/13/10 09:42:44 <ttx> sysadmin-friendly."
01/13/10 09:43:13 <ttx> This is a global effort, so I'd like to discuss part of the design during the alpha3 period
01/13/10 09:43:21 <ttx> get community's advice on it
01/13/10 09:43:30 <ttx> Today I want to discuss the nomination mechanism
01/13/10 09:43:41 <ttx> Two options were mentioned in the mail
01/13/10 09:43:47 <ttx> LP project approach:
01/13/10 09:43:47 <ttx> * Nominate by marking Also affects project
01/13/10 09:43:47 <ttx> * Accept by marking bug Confirmed for the project
01/13/10 09:43:47 <ttx> * Reject by marking bug Invalid for the project
01/13/10 09:43:48 <ttx> * Find bugs by looking at project bugs
01/13/10 09:43:50 <ttx> * Fix-release in both Ubuntu and project
01/13/10 09:43:53 <ttx> LP tag approach:
01/13/10 09:43:54 <ttx> * Nominate by tagging server-papercut-proposed
01/13/10 09:43:56 <ttx> * Accept by tagging server-papercut
01/13/10 09:43:58 <ttx> * Reject by marking server-papercut-refused
01/13/10 09:44:00 <ttx> * Find bugs by searching for tags
01/13/10 09:44:02 <ttx> * Fix-release in Ubuntu
01/13/10 09:44:04 <ttx> which one should we pursue ?
01/13/10 09:44:16 <ttx> I tend to prefer the tag approach, but we had someone in the ML preferring the project approach
01/13/10 09:44:31 <ttx> tag is more integrated
01/13/10 09:44:37 <jiboumans>   ttx, do we have an answer to this: "I do not see anywhere (like I said, I may be missing out on a feature) the
01/13/10 09:44:38 <jiboumans>   ability to "subscribe" to tags."
01/13/10 09:44:38 <zul> project aproach
01/13/10 09:45:08 <ttx> jiboumans: nothing already built in LP that I know of
01/13/10 09:45:24 <ttx> i.e. if you don't add some home-made glue
01/13/10 09:45:34 <ttx> I agree that increases the barrier of entry
01/13/10 09:45:38 <--   niko has quit ("Reconnecting")
01/13/10 09:45:45 <ttx> so Lp project, everyone agrees ?
01/13/10 09:45:51 <jiboumans>   ttx: my vote is on transparency. if all things are not equal i vote project
01/13/10 09:45:54 <zul> i think the project aproach increases visibility

01/13/10 10:02:29 <jiboumans>   Bug 494565 is the first on the list :)
01/13/10 10:02:30 <ubottu>      Launchpad bug 494565 in linux "support ramdiskless boot for relavant kvm drive interfaces in -virtual" [High,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/494565

01/13/10 10:03:13 <jiboumans>   jjohansen: great. as you know we have a blueprint depending on it
01/13/10 10:03:24 <jiboumans>   jjohansen: any updates from the kernel team for this week?
01/13/10 10:03:35 <jjohansen>   yeah I would like to get it nailed down next week
01/13/10 10:04:13 <jjohansen>   not that I can think of, we froze the kernel on friday and most changes were in thursday
01/13/10 10:04:35 <jiboumans>   jjohansen: as a heads up, we've targeted this spec for alpha3: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/server-lucid-other-cloud-providers
01/13/10 10:04:46 <mathiaz>     jjohansen: I ran into a pci hotplug error

01/13/10 10:05:03 <jiboumans>   relevant for you are any kernel issues that may be coming up to run on rackspace's environment
01/13/10 10:05:04 <jjohansen>   mathiaz: thanks
01/13/10 10:05:05 <mathiaz>     jjohansen: when doing some ebs testing on UEC
01/13/10 10:05:13 <mathiaz>     jjohansen: have you seen the bug?
01/13/10 10:05:24 <jjohansen>   no
01/13/10 10:05:38 <mathiaz>     jjohansen: bug 506698

01/13/10 10:06:31 <mathiaz>     jjohansen: when libvirt/kvm removes the device, the guest see this warning/error message
01/13/10 10:06:55 <jjohansen>   mathiaz: okay I'll have a look
01/13/10 10:07:00 <mathiaz>     jjohansen: thanks

01/13/10 10:07:40 <jiboumans>   seems i missed a bit of discussion earlier though, my appologies. so:
01/13/10 10:07:45 <jiboumans>   [TOPIC] server-lucid-aws-client-libraries
01/13/10 10:07:46 <MootBot>     New Topic:  server-lucid-aws-client-libraries
01/13/10 10:07:54 <jiboumans>   we had some outstanding action points
01/13/10 10:08:02 <jiboumans>   ACTION jib to complete Perl list for AWS client libs
01/13/10 10:08:12 <jiboumans>   i've added the perl modlues to the wiki
01/13/10 10:08:27 <jiboumans>   in most cases we only have one choice, and at least 2 of them are only provided by amazon, meaning we have to investigate their license
01/13/10 10:08:37 <jiboumans>   mathiaz: let me know if you need more info on this
01/13/10 10:08:48 <jiboumans>   ACTION nijaba to complete PHP list for AWS client libs
01/13/10 10:09:03 <nijaba>      see http://nicolas.barcet.com/drupal/fr/php-ec2-libraries I would recommend packaging tarzan

01/13/10 10:09:59 <mathiaz>     nijaba: could you add it to the wiki page?
01/13/10 10:10:08 <nijaba>      mathiaz: sure

01/13/10 10:10:36 <jiboumans>   nijaba: did you check for libraries for all the services? or is tarzan doing it all?
01/13/10 10:10:57 <nijaba>      jiboumans: there is not that many in total in PHP.
01/13/10 10:11:24 <jiboumans>   nijaba: i saw some by amazon, beyond just ec2 though
01/13/10 10:11:26 <nijaba>      jiboumans: zend and Tarzan cover most services
01/13/10 10:11:29 <erichammond> jiboumans: I'm pretty sure that Amazon released their SimpleDB package under the Apache 2 license.  They seemed somewhat supportive of adding it to CPAN, though it was difficult to find anybody in charge who could answer authoritatively.  It's been about a year since I pursued the issue with them.
01/13/10 10:11:58 <jiboumans>   erichammond: if you have a contact, i can facilitate from the perl side
01/13/10 10:12:05 <zul> nijaba: is it easy to package? ;)
01/13/10 10:12:42 <nijaba>      zul: I have not gone that far
01/13/10 10:13:15 <jiboumans>   ACTION Mathiaz to send out AWS Client lib RFC
01/13/10 10:13:53 <mathiaz>     jiboumans: you've already re-actioned me this one
01/13/10 10:14:12 <jiboumans>   i don't recall, but i'll trust you
01/13/10 10:14:23 <jiboumans>   as it stands, we have input for perl/python/php
01/13/10 10:14:44 <jiboumans>   barring easily packagable or community efforts for the other languages, i suggest we target only those 3 for alpha3
01/13/10 10:14:58 <ttx> jiboumans: ack
01/13/10 10:15:12 <jiboumans>   ok, moving on

01/13/10 10:19:50 <jiboumans>   [TOPIC] Using bzr for package maintenance (zul)
01/13/10 10:19:52 <MootBot>     New Topic:  Using bzr for package maintenance (zul)
01/13/10 10:20:27 <zul> so i just want to get people to use bzr branches for server packages more often and want to know what people think, especially mathiaz
01/13/10 10:20:49 <mathiaz>     zul: it's a good thing!
01/13/10 10:21:07 <ttx> bzr-branches++
01/13/10 10:21:09 <zul> i been using bzr branches more and I think it would be a good idea to get more poeple to use it more, maybe write some documentation on how we should use it
01/13/10 10:21:21 <ivoks>       yes, docs please
01/13/10 10:21:22 <ivoks>       :D
01/13/10 10:21:32 <mathiaz>     https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DistributedDevelopment/Documentation
01/13/10 10:21:42 <mathiaz>     ^^ this is what james_w has been writing up
01/13/10 10:21:53 <ttx> zul: are you missing something in particular ?
01/13/10 10:21:54 <mathiaz>     to cover working with package branches
01/13/10 10:22:05 <ttx> not enough people doing it ?
01/13/10 10:22:21 <zul> ttx: not enough people doing it and we might need some policy
01/13/10 10:22:35 <--   Lure has quit (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
01/13/10 10:22:41 <ttx> policy for waht ? Everything should be submitted in branches ?
01/13/10 10:22:44 <mathiaz>     one proposal was to push for using pkg branches in the SRU process
01/13/10 10:22:54 <mathiaz>     combined with the LP review process
01/13/10 10:23:14 <zul> yeah I been doing that when I have time for SRU
01/13/10 10:23:16 <smoser>      i've a question..
01/13/10 10:23:29 <smoser>      so when i push a branch as a fix for a bug, it gets magically attached.
01/13/10 10:23:39 <smoser>      but then once that bug is fixed, i often want to trash that branch
01/13/10 10:24:02 <smoser>      is there any negative effect of that ? ie, the branch i attach for the fix often includes just the single fix i want, to avoid confusion for anyone.
01/13/10 10:24:10 <--   mr_pouit has quit (Read error: 54 (Connection reset by peer))
01/13/10 10:24:25 <mathiaz>     smoser: you can edit the status of the bzr branch in LP
01/13/10 10:24:29 <mathiaz>     smoser: and mark it merged
01/13/10 10:24:44 <mathiaz>     smoser: that way it won't show up in the default LP listings for branches
01/13/10 10:24:46 <smoser>      then it would cease to show up on my list . 
01/13/10 10:24:48 <ttx> mathiaz: it would still appear on the bug ?
01/13/10 10:24:50 <smoser>      ah. thats reasonable.
01/13/10 10:24:56 <mathiaz>     smoser: but LP still knows about it
01/13/10 10:24:59 <mathiaz>     ttx: I think so
01/13/10 10:25:00 <ttx> ok
01/13/10 10:25:19 <zul> thats it from me
01/13/10 10:25:36 <jiboumans>   any actions coming from this?
01/13/10 10:25:48 <ivoks>       pain
01/13/10 10:25:49 <ttx> zul: ok -- at this point it's difficult to ask patch submitters to replace their debdiff by a branch proposal
01/13/10 10:25:49 <ivoks>       :D
01/13/10 10:25:55 -->   Lure (n=quassel@ubuntu/member/lure) has joined #ubuntu-meeting
01/13/10 10:26:01 <ttx> so I don't think there is much to set in stone in a policy
01/13/10 10:26:07 <jiboumans>   ivoks: the good kind, surely
01/13/10 10:26:20 <--   yofel has quit (Read error: 101 (Network is unreachable))
01/13/10 10:26:20 <zul> ttx: true i just want to encourage people more to use bzr branches

01/13/10 10:27:44 <ivoks>       o/
01/13/10 10:28:01 <ivoks>       we haven't mentioned mail-stack blueprint
01/13/10 10:28:16 <ivoks>       ScottK is assigned, but i'll be working on it
01/13/10 10:28:39 <jiboumans>   ivoks: ok, we cleared the spec a few meetings ago, so we didn't have it on teh agenda
01/13/10 10:28:40 <ivoks>       so if someone has the power of chaning assignee, please do
01/13/10 10:28:46 <jiboumans>   happy to
01/13/10 10:29:00 <ivoks>       thanks
01/13/10 10:29:01 <jiboumans>   ivoks: well volunteered, done
01/13/10 10:29:20 -->   j_ack (n=j_ack@p57A42819.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) has joined #ubuntu-meeting
01/13/10 10:29:26 <jiboumans>   ivoks: anything about the spec itself?
01/13/10 10:29:36 -->   mr_pouit (n=mrpouit@ubuntu/member/mrpouit) has joined #ubuntu-meeting
01/13/10 10:29:52 <ivoks>       all except debconf integration should be doable for alpha3
01/13/10 10:30:18 <jiboumans>   ttx, ivoks: debconf sounds like something that would have to be done for featurefreeze, no?
01/13/10 10:30:54 <mathiaz>     jiboumans: yes - I'd say so
01/13/10 10:31:00 <ttx> jiboumans: yes
01/13/10 10:31:09 <--   starcraft-ntbk has quit (Remote closed the connection)
01/13/10 10:31:14 <jiboumans>   alright, so what do we do with this item?
01/13/10 10:31:39 <ivoks>       we could convert it into: make packages ask questions
01/13/10 10:31:45 <mathiaz>     jiboumans: try to stick it into alpha3
01/13/10 10:31:56 <ttx> ivoks: that would still be a feature
01/13/10 10:31:58 <mathiaz>     jiboumans: if not - plan to ask for a FeatureFreeze Exception if it's important
01/13/10 10:32:13 <ivoks>       ttx: yes, but easily done
01/13/10 10:33:17 <ttx> well, those questions are pretty essential
01/13/10 10:33:36 <ivoks>       i don't think so
01/13/10 10:33:44 <ttx> "Debconf will be used to gather additional information to get to a fully functional system. "
01/13/10 10:33:51 <ivoks>       those are 'what kind of mail server do you want us to set up for you?'
01/13/10 10:34:26 <ivoks>       for example, do you want postgrey, rbl, etc
01/13/10 10:34:51 <ivoks>       we could assume that if someone installs postgrey-postfix that she wants it
01/13/10 10:35:12 <jiboumans>   ivoks, ttx: to summarize, if the debconf questions are essential for setting up the system, they need to be done for alpha3
01/13/10 10:35:19 <jiboumans>   if they're not, let's reflect that in the work items
01/13/10 10:35:20 <ivoks>       ok
01/13/10 10:35:30 <ttx> jiboumans: ack
01/13/10 10:35:43 <jiboumans>   if it's a bit of each, split the items; we can't guarantee an exception and it'd be a shame to miss the window
