16:03 <jgrimm> openstack summit this week 16:03 <powersj> ah yes 16:03 <powersj> leave on for one more week? 16:04 <jgrimm> sure. i don't have any context on that item, but we can do over email if needed 16:04 <powersj> (cpaelzer) investigating severity of issues covered by qemu 2.5. stable releases and ask other Teams on 16:05 <cpaelzer> yo 16:05 <cpaelzer> all the Crits in the delta from us to the latest stable were already covered by the security Team 16:05 <cpaelzer> I got some feedback 16:05 <cpaelzer> all that I got referred to cases where doing it pro-actively broke stuff 16:05 <cpaelzer> so I guess the consensus is - unless we have any reason to do so we keep it as is 16:06 <cpaelzer> there are about two in there which could be considered "high" but it depends so much on the particular setup that it is hard to rate "comunity wide" 16:06 <cpaelzer> so TL;DR - not bringing in 126.96.36.199 proactively 16:07 <cpaelzer> powersj: that item done, ready for the next if there are now further questions 16:07 <powersj> #done cpaelzer investigating severity of issues covered by qemu 2.5. stable releases and ask other Teams on their input 16:07 <powersj> cpaelzer will try to ask Stephen Hemminger for more data on the netdev presentation 16:07 <cpaelzer> yeah that is the next one 16:07 <cpaelzer> I met him, and not only asked but discussed in detail 16:08 <cpaelzer> while this was an entertaining discussion there isn't much he could share that would help us to identify new issues or address them 16:08 <cpaelzer> but 16:08 <cpaelzer> I found good contact in Intel for openvswitch dpdk and at least for that will work on analyzing some East/West Traffic issues that our Testing in regard to ovs-DPDK inveiled in the last dev cycle 16:09 <cpaelzer> any questions on that? 16:09 <cpaelzer> powersj: you have the timout duty to call it none, mark it done and go on 16:09 <powersj> #done cpaelzer will try to ask Stephen Hemminger for more data on the netdev presentation 16:09 <powersj> powersj to update agenda to remove yakkety add in zesty 16:09 <powersj> #done powersj to update agenda to remove yakkety add in zesty 16:10 <powersj> that's all the action items, moving on 16:10 <powersj> #topic Zesty Development 16:10 <powersj> #link https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ZestyZapus/ReleaseSchedule 16:10 <cpaelzer> the page doesn't exist yet 16:10 <jgrimm> heh 16:10 <cpaelzer> But I'm sure your link will be correct one day 16:10 <powersj> Yeah I just changed yakkety -> zesty 16:10 <cpaelzer> one thing on zesty dev 16:10 <cpaelzer> I just discussed with rbasak on that earlier today 16:11 <cpaelzer> there is no debootstrap for zesty yet 16:11 <cpaelzer> that means you can hardly (only with workarounds) do sbuild, autopkgtest and such 16:11 <cpaelzer> the TL;DR of our discussion was that zesty atm should be considered only "somewhat open" for development 16:12 <cpaelzer> until that shows up in backports for your release - likely Xenial/Yakkety 16:12 <cpaelzer> rbasak: andyinth to add? 16:12 <cpaelzer> "anything" 16:12 <rbasak> No, that covers it. 16:12 <rbasak> It'll probably be in updates rather than backports. 16:12 <cpaelzer> true 16:12 <cpaelzer> ok, just thought worth to mention it here for all 16:12 <jgrimm> thanks, i hadn't known that. :( 16:13 <cpaelzer> jgrimm: you can just fire and forget upload - but if you like testing before :-) 16:13 <powersj> is it on us or foundations or other to get that updated? 16:13 * rharper joins late 16:13 <cpaelzer> on foundation I think, the question is if we could get a hook somewhere to be notified once it is ready to go - and maybe an ETA 16:14 <rbasak> AFAICT, it usually happens when some developer gets fed up and JFDI 16:14 <rbasak> I don't think anyone would object if one of us did the update. 16:14 <rbasak> (though do coordinate in #ubuntu-devel to avoid duplicate effort, etc) 16:15 <jgrimm> would be good to know if its on someone's plate already/eta 16:16 <cpaelzer> rbasak: you likely have the best connections - would you reach out to them for the question of jgrimm? 16:16 <rbasak> ack 16:17 <rbasak> Is it just debootstrap? 16:17 * powersj wonders how hard a symlink + change log entry could be ;) 16:17 <rbasak> powersj: it's not hard in the slightest - just needs someone to do it :) 16:17 <cpaelzer> powersj: quite often the devil is in the detail 16:17 <powersj> if I hear no movement I may just try 16:18 <cpaelzer> powersj: wait until rbasak pings us after inquiring maybe? 16:18 <powersj> yeah 16:18 <cpaelzer> rbasak: you could drop whatever you find out to server-dev list or such - ok ? 16:18 <rbasak> ack 16:18 <powersj> alright, any other topics for zesty dev? 16:19 <powersj> #subtopic Release Bugs 16:19 <powersj> #link http://reqorts.qa.ubuntu.com/reports/rls-mgr/rls-y-tracking-bug-tasks.html#ubuntu-server 16:19 <jgrimm> nacc has imported a bunch of server packages 16:19 <jgrimm> he's out today 16:19 <powersj> ah yes! 16:19 <powersj> I'll capture in notes 16:20 <jgrimm> basically pre-imported list of server packages that are out of date wrt upstream version 16:20 <cpaelzer> I'm on the dovecot one and about 5 others, but while a lot of work non is like exploding the system for anybody 16:21 <powersj> anything else?
