Review ACTION points from previous meeting
As Somer has sadly announced he does not have sufficient time to continue his excellent work on the docs, kim0 is going to help us by working to create a new community around documentation.
Regarding oneiric images not booting on hvm instances, smb had a test image fixing that problem.
With everyone sprinting the previous week, our bug list had grown again. Both the triage report and server release bug lists needed work. Daviey said that feature freeze exceptions need to be raised for every feature not yet landed.
Ubuntu Server Team Events
lynxman and company are sprinting next week for openstack and orchestra. Linuxcon is this week.
Weekly Updates & Questions for the Kernel Team (smb)
smb was wondering whether the rename of xvd to sd patch should be reverted on maverick as well. smoser was not comfortable with that, they will discuss further.
Weekly Updates & Questions for the QA Team (hggdh)
hggdh asked, (1) "are there any new tests we should run on the ISO tracker?" and (2) "what is the status of openstack & companions?". Daviey said we need more tests, and hopefully Jamespage will be able to help with that soon. Jamespage started a list of openstack testing at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ServerTeam/Oneiric/OpenStackTestPlan.
Updates & Questions from the Ubuntu Community
Daviey asked anyone in the community interested in helping to make Ubuntu server rock even more to ping him.
Agree on next meeting date and time
Next meeting will be on Tuesday, August 23d at 16:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.

16:07:02 <smb> Anything we cannot claim a bug? 16:07:21 <Daviey> smb: couldn't put it better myself! 16:07:42 <utlemming> or anything we can't make sound like a bug? 16:07:43 <Daviey> anything else for development? 16:07:49 <Daviey> utlemming: Shhh (but yes) 16:07:59 <Daviey> But actually, feature bugs are helpful for tracking. 16:08:12 <hallyn> thanks, Daviey. moving on then, 16:08:19 <hallyn> #topic Ubuntu Server Team Events 16:08:19 <meetingology> TOPIC: Ubuntu Server Team Events 16:08:41 <hallyn> i think we're event'ed out, but linuxcon is going on right now and at least plumber's is coming up 16:08:46 <Daviey> Next Week - lynxman and co are sprinting. 16:09:06 <Daviey> doing orchestra and openstack love. 16:09:17 <toddc> + 16:09:20 <zul> linuxcon thisweek 16:09:40 <Daviey> So say hello to zul if you see him in Vancoover. 16:09:50 <hallyn> ok, moving on, 16:09:51 * robbiew leaves today 16:09:54 <robbiew> for linxcon 16:10:00 <zul> yay 16:10:12 <zul> robbiew: bring your tuxedo 16:10:17 <hallyn> and kirkland is there?

On the other hand its only a matter of time till that dies now... 16:12:19 <ubottu> Launchpad bug 821466 in linux (Ubuntu) "Lucid kernel works on Rackspace cloud server, Maverick kernel does not" [Undecided,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/821466 16:12:56 <smb> Its gone in Natty and I would think EC2 can do without... smoser ? 16:13:12 <hggdh> \o (late, I know) 16:13:25 <smoser> wait, what ? smb ? 16:13:30 <hallyn> hggdh: (cool, we'll go back when smb is done) 16:13:52 <smoser> oh, i see. i would not say we should change the device naming in an SRU 16:14:14 <smb> smoser, Would you think too, that maverick EC2 would still work with the devices be xvda... and so on? 16:14:22 <nijaba> o/ (late too) 16:14:26 <smb> Ok, so we just keep it that way 16:14:43 <hallyn> does that mean mav kernel won't work on rackspace? 16:14:51 <smoser> smb, i'm not sure. without thinking more. 16:15:29 <hallyn> do you want to discuss out of band after thinking more? 16:15:34 <smb> Other thing. Currently trying to test latest oneiric dom0. PVM seems ok. HVM... well the loader seems ok after todays update, but something evil is going on with my bonding setup... 16:15:47 <smb> hallyn, Yeah, no hurry there 16:16:02 <hallyn> #action smoser and smb to further discuss xvd renaming (bug 821466) 16:16:02 * meetingology smoser and smb to further discuss xvd renaming (bug 821466) 16:16:03 <ubottu> Launchpad bug 821466 in linux (Ubuntu) "Lucid kernel works on Rackspace cloud server, Maverick kernel does not" [Undecided,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/821466 16:16:11 <smoser> if i understand correctly, smb, you're suggesting that we should make maverick use the /dev/xvda based naming rather than the patch we had there to make the first device as /dev/sda 16:16:14 <smoser> is that correct? 16:16:32 <smb> smoser, correct (revert the patch doing that like in natty) 16:16:50 <smoser> because i'm really pretty sure that we should not make such a change in a stable release, especially one that is just going to go away soon enough 16:17:07 <smoser> lucid, though, is another story 16:17:22 <smoser> we will need that to upgrade smoothly to 12.04, so will have to think about it. 16:17:24 <smb> smoser, Ok, can live with that too. So I would document it in the bug and be done 16:17:28 <utlemming> also, I would be a little concerned about what happens when a user updates 16:18:06 <utlemming> if users aren't mounting via persistent names, than that sort of change could break them. 16:18:15 <hallyn> so is that decided (comment and make no change)? 16:18:26 <smb> smoser, Well we need to look closely which kernel yields what 16:18:57 <smb> ec2 kernels probably use sda while server and generic-pae would have xvd 16:19:20 <hallyn> let's move on guys. smb you suspect your bonding setup is unreliable? 16:19:21 <smb> hallyn, I take that yes for Maverick anyways 16:19:34 <smb> hallyn, Not working at all seems a better word 16:19:42 <hallyn> but it was working with latest try? 16:19:54 <hallyn> oh, i see 16:19:54 <smb> It works under normal boot it seems 16:20:20 <smb> Maybe when xend takes over and creates pbond0... not sure yet 16:20:42 * RoAkSoAx is back 16:20:52 <smb> It was working before I upgraded today, but that was the after-feature freeeze update... 16:20:59 <hallyn> smb: do you want any help from smoser/zul on that, or do you just need to dig in? 16:21:02 <smb> so all odds are open 16:21:12 <smb> I'll get back if I can find nothing 16:21:17 <smb> Just wanted to bring it up 16:21:24 <hallyn> cool, thanks smb 16:21:30 <smb> In case someone else had been experiencing the same 16:21:30 <hallyn> moving back, 16:21:35 <smb> .. 16:21:39 <hallyn> #topic Weekly Updates & Questions for the QA Team (hggdh) 16:21:39 <meetingology> TOPIC: Weekly Updates & Questions for the QA Team (hggdh) 16:22:05 <hggdh> I have a few questions relating to beta 16:22:21 <hggdh> (1) are there any new tests we should run on the ISO tracker? 16:22:41 <hggdh> (2) what is the status of openstack & companions? 16:23:23 <Daviey> hggdh: we need more tests, but as it stands we've had no time to assist with that 16:23:39 <Daviey> I'm hoping jamespage might be able to assist with that soon. 16:23:41 <hallyn> Daviey: is there a list of new tests which need to be written? 16:23:47 <Daviey> hallyn: not as yet. 16:24:19 <Daviey> hggdh: the devtest lab currently has an orchestra provisioning server 16:24:35 <Daviey> Once ensemble lands it's required features, we are hoping to really bang out the test cases. 16:24:40 <jamespage> Daviey, hggdh: I did start a topic for planning openstack testing - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ServerTeam/Oneiric/OpenStackTestPlan 16:24:51 <Daviey> jamespage: splendid! 16:24:55 <hggdh> perfect! 16:24:55 <jamespage> but its lacking detail as yet 16:25:10 <hggdh> what about cobbler? 16:25:32 <jamespage> hggdh: should we drop the current uec tests from the tracker (or did I miss that happening already?)? 16:25:55 <Daviey> jamespage: I believe that has been done 16:25:57 <hggdh> jamespage: as far as I can remember, they should have been dropped already 16:26:03 <jamespage> OK 16:26:05 <hggdh> I will check with jibel, though 16:27:03 <hggdh> and, from me.
