Open Discussion

The discussion about "Open Discussion" started at 16:21.

jgrimm has been unsubscribing "Ubuntu Server" from Openstack packages (with approval from Openstack team), as that team has been split off for quite a while. Makes various reports much more useful as each team can find their 'work' (bugs, merges, etc). Next will be to audit remaining Ubuntu Server packages for packages that Openstack isn't subscribed to yet, but probably should be.

teward made everyone aware that he'd put out a call for testing in maybe a week - installation, and upgrade-from-current-version - for nginx.

    16:06 <jgrimm> hi folks!! i think there are a few people out this week or busy.

    16:06 <jgrimm> #topic Review ACTION points from previous meeting

    16:07 <jgrimm> No action points listed. cool

    16:07 <jgrimm> #topic Yakkety Development

    16:07 <jgrimm> #link https://wiki.ubuntu.com/YakketyYak/ReleaseSchedule

    16:08 <jgrimm> good time to get some merges in of course..

    16:08 <nacc> to that end, the importer is almost done for v1

    16:08 <jgrimm> #link https://merges.ubuntu.com/main.html

    16:08 <nacc> i'm verifying manually a few example merges

    16:08 <nacc> example imports, rather

    16:09 <nacc> while it might get deleted, you can see one example here: https://git.launchpad.net/~nacc/ubuntu/+source/open-vm-tools/log/?h=ubuntu/devel

    16:09 <jgrimm> nacc, do you plan to send an email out to ml, with instructions/examples/request for help testing?

    16:09 <nacc> smoser: --^ you might esp. be interested as that is a full history, of sorts

    16:09 <nacc> jgrimm: yep, i'll 'announce' when v1 is ready, i'll need to discuss with rbasak too if we're going to setup a staging project before moving to usd officially

    16:10 <nacc> jgrimm: feel free to give me an action for that

    16:10 <smoser> nacc, that is awesome!

    16:10 <jgrimm> #action nacc to announce v1 importer to ubuntu server world 16:10 * meetingology nacc to announce v1 importer to ubuntu server world

    16:10 <jgrimm> when rdy of course. Smile :)

    16:11 <jgrimm> #subtopic Release Bugs

    16:11 <nacc> smoser: i'm still verifying it's correct, which is slow & manual, and i think open-vm-tools in particular had a break in the history (hence there's an orphan'd tag in th emiddle)

    16:11 <smoser> nacc, is '%' a : ?

    16:11 <nacc> smoser: but it handles syncs and merges properly, i think, so that's something Smile :)

    16:11 <smoser> Merge with import/2%10.0.7-3227872-2

    16:11 <nacc> smoser: yes, that's the dep-14 translation

    16:11 <smoser> ok.

    16:11 <jgrimm> #link http://reqorts.qa.ubuntu.com/reports/rls-mgr/rls-y-tracking-bug-tasks.html#ubuntu-server

    16:12 <nacc> ~ -> _ and % -> :

    16:12 <nacc> smoser: --^ (from http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep14/)

    16:12 <nacc> smoser: we're going to update git-dsc-commit accordingly too

    16:13 <jgrimm> moving on..

    16:13 <nacc> ack

    16:13 <jgrimm> #topic Server & Cloud Bugs (caribou)

    16:13 <caribou> nothing to report this week

    16:13 <jgrimm> thanks caribou

    16:13 <nacc> so i have one server bug for xenial -- related to samba

    16:13 <nacc> LP: #997172

    16:13 <ubottu> Launchpad bug 997172 in smbldap-tools (Ubuntu) "smbldap-config.pl not installed" [Undecided,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/997172

    16:13 <teward> o/ (late)

    16:14 <nacc> it's fixed upstream by http://svn.gna.org/viewcvs/smbldap-tools/trunk/Makefile.in?r1=155&r2=156&

    16:14 <nacc> but i'm not sure that's an acceptable thing to SRU? it shouldn't lead to any regression, as the perl script simply isn't present right now...

    16:14 <jgrimm> nacc, cool. 2012 filed bug.

    16:15 <nacc> but serverguide is broken/not possible to fix without that bug being resolved (and in fact mentions that bug explicitly as the reason it's wrong Smile :)

    16:16 <jgrimm> nacc, i haven't read full bug.. what would be reason for not SRUing it?

    16:16 <nacc> jgrimm: i wasn't sure if there were rules about adding a new executable to the contents of a package already published

    16:17 <nacc> jgrimm: i guess it's going somewhere into /usr/share/doc, so maybe it shouldn't be too big of a deal

    16:17 <nacc> jgrimm: just wanted to double-check and then i'll fix the bug and serverguide

    16:17 <jgrimm> nacc, sounds good

    16:17 <jgrimm> anyone else?

    16:18 <cpaelzer> IMHO - regression potential is the main question, and that seems low to none

    16:18 <jgrimm> #topic Weekly Updates & Questions for the Kernel Team (smb, sforshee, arges)

    16:18 <smb> Nothing new this week. So far the Yakkety kernel still is a rolled forward Xenial one.

    16:18 <jgrimm> thanks smb

    16:18 <jgrimm> any questions for kernel team?

    16:18 <nacc> cpaelzer: ack, thanks

    16:19 <jgrimm> moving on

    16:19 <jgrimm> #topic Upcoming Call For Papers

    16:20 <jgrimm> not seeing anything interesting on lwn CFP calendar

    16:20 <jgrimm> pycon is coming up at end of month

    16:21 <jgrimm> #topic Ubuntu Server Team Events

    16:21 <jgrimm> #topic Open Discussion

    16:21 <teward> just to put this out there, i'll be putting out a call for testing in maybe a week - installation, and upgrade-from-current-version - for nginx.

    16:22 <jgrimm> thanks teward

    16:22 <jgrimm> so one thing i've meant to mention is that I've started unsubscribing 'Ubuntu Server Team" from openstack packages.

    16:22 <teward> i'm almost finished getting a merge prepped, but before I push it in, I need more than my own basic tests - i'll send to ubuntu-server ML when that's ready

    16:22 <jgrimm> thanks

    16:22 <teward> yep Smile :)

    16:23 <cpaelzer> jgrimm: I also saw you went into discussion with the openstack Team for cases where it is not 100% clear if it is server or openstack

    16:23 <cpaelzer> jgrimm: will you do that for all packages that you consider "openstack"?

    16:24 <cpaelzer> like rabbitmq this week IIRC

    16:24 <cpaelzer> last week

    16:24 <jgrimm> cpaelzer, there will be some packages that we jointly support

    16:24 <jgrimm> rabbitmq is probably all ours tho as independently useful

    16:24 <cpaelzer> jgrimm: nice, this will help the bug overview - Thank!

    16:25 <jgrimm> cpaelzer, yes.. it cleans up a bunch of reports to make them actually useful for both of our teams

    16:25 <cpaelzer> the general clarification - not that "we" got rabbitmq Smile :-)

    16:26 <jgrimm> Smile :)

    16:26 <jgrimm> anyone else?

    16:26 <jgrimm> #topic Announce next meeting date, time and chair

    16:27 <jgrimm> Tuesday 2016-05-24 at 1600 UTC .. jamespage to chair

    16:27 <jgrimm> and that's a wrap. Thanks folks!

    16:27 <cpaelzer> thanks jgrimm, o/ everybody
