    17:06:17 <gema> good, let's get started then

    17:06:31 <gema> [TOPIC] Previous Actions

    17:06:46 <gema> phillw: do we have any pending action from last week?

    17:06:58 <phillw> gema: just that one carried over action.

    17:07:13 <gema> patrickmw: you created this link, didn't you?

    17:07:31 <patrickmw> yes, let me grab that

    17:08:04 <patrickmw> [LINK] https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/Automation

    17:08:13 <gema> cool, thanks

    17:08:30 <alourie> hi there

    17:08:44 <gema> hi alourie

    17:08:52 <balloons> hello alourie

    17:08:56 <gema> alourie: could you make sure that links makes it to the front of our wiki?

    17:09:05 <gema> patrickmw: thanks a lot

    17:09:06 <alourie> gema: sorry?

    17:09:14 <gema> the link that patrickmw just pasted

    17:09:23 <gema> with links to all the projects and test code

    17:09:29 <patrickmw> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/Automation

    17:09:32 <alourie> ah, sure

    17:09:35 <alourie> it's there

    17:09:39 <gema> thanks

    17:09:41 <patrickmw> Smile :)

    17:09:44 <patrickmw> indeed

    17:09:54 <alourie> I will

    17:09:54 <gema> so that action is dealt with

    17:10:00 <gema> let's move on

    17:10:17 <gema> [TOPIC] Blueprints Updates and Community Tasks

    17:10:27 <gema> we are going to do the update quickly today

    17:10:37 <gema> alourie: do you have any update?

    17:11:06 <alourie> gema: I've been working on wiki update, so I can see you and Nicholas have looked at it

    17:11:16 <alourie> I am now more happy with the structure and the content

    17:11:35 <gema> excellent, we love the changes but are confused by the duality

    17:11:37 <alourie> so I think we're ready for feedback and replacing the main page

    17:11:40 <gema> so merging it would be good

    17:11:47 <alourie> yea

    17:11:49 <balloons> alourie, yep, I think so

    17:12:04 <balloons> much less confusing now

    17:12:07 <alourie> balloons, gema: I just saw the email, will read it later

    17:12:11 <gema> [ACTION] alourie to merge the new version of the wiki with the old one 17:12:11 * meetingology alourie to merge the new version of the wiki with the old one

    17:12:25 <gema> I like actions Big Grin :)

    17:12:25 <alourie> btw, is there a way to move complete trees of wiki?

    17:12:40 <gema> alourie: I don't think so, but not sure

    17:12:43 <alourie> I've been playing with the idea to move some of the Testing/... to QATeam/...

    17:12:49 <balloons> alourie, I can dig around and help you with that

    17:12:50 <balloons> I was looking into it this afternoon mysel

    17:12:52 <balloons> *myself

    17:13:06 <alourie> balloons: well, it's wiki, so it kinda should be possible

    17:13:12 <balloons> no promises there's an easy way Smile :-)

    17:13:22 <balloons> right.. export and import if nothing else

    17:13:28 <gema> in any case, we may want to do a copy&paste, whichever way

    17:13:40 <alourie> gema, balloons: or we can leave it as it is

    17:13:45 <alourie> and just link properly

    17:13:56 <alourie> let me work on it a bit

    17:14:00 <alourie> and finally

    17:14:10 <gema> alourie: you got it, make sure balloons help you with that

    17:14:18 <alourie> there's a lot of obsolete stuff there

    17:14:24 <gema> alourie: remove it

    17:14:26 <alourie> which is no longer relevant

    17:14:29 <gema> it is confusing

    17:14:32 <alourie> gema: yes, that's my point

    17:14:46 <alourie> maybe not remove per se, but "archive" of a sort

    17:14:46 <gema> alourie: if you don't feel comfy with it, I will grab the axe 17:14:50 * txomon|nqas laughs

    17:14:55 <alourie> gema: oh, don't worry

    17:15:04 <gema> alourie: it's a wiki, there's history there

    17:15:04 <alourie> I worry that my axe could be too large Smile :-)

    17:15:07 <gema> don't worry and remove it

    17:15:11 <alourie> gema: sure

    17:15:15 <alourie> I'm done

    17:15:20 <gema> ok

    17:15:21 <alourie> ...

    17:15:26 <gema> txomon|nqas: do you have any update?

    17:15:43 <txomon|nqas> not refering the wiki

    17:15:51 <gema> and referring to anything else?

    17:16:23 <txomon|nqas> well, I would like to discuss what we already started discussing in the mail-list

    17:16:24 <balloons> alourie, yes in general it's best to not have old content.. just confuses everyone Smile :-)

    17:16:41 <alourie> balloons: yea, sure

    17:16:59 <balloons> txomon|nqas, the bug report?

    17:17:01 <gema> txomon|nqas: you mean the bug?

    17:17:12 <txomon|nqas> more meant to be a post, but yes

    17:17:23 <alourie> o oh

    17:17:27 <gema> txomon|nqas: ok, can we discuss this next week?

    17:17:28 <alourie> Smile :-)

    17:17:37 <txomon|nqas> oki

    17:17:38 <gema> place it in the agenda as an item?

    17:17:42 <alourie> gema: please

    17:17:47 <gema> or if you prefer, you could answer to my email

    17:17:56 <txomon|nqas> I prefer

    17:18:08 <alourie> gema: place it to agenda, if we solve it through mail discussion, we'll remove it

    17:18:10 <txomon|nqas> don't know if I will be able to be here

    17:18:16 <alourie> txomon|home:

    17:18:21 <gema> txomon|nqas: ok

    17:18:30 <gema> let's do it by email so that everyone benefits from it

    17:18:34 <balloons> txomon|nqas, did you have any thoughts on possible action items to take that you wanted feedback on?

    17:19:03 <txomon|nqas> I have been testing packages independently

    17:19:06 <balloons> otherwise, email should work nicely

    17:19:19 <txomon|nqas> and that for example is not quite stable

    17:19:31 <txomon|nqas> in gnome packets dependencies missing etc

    17:19:36 <gema> txomon|nqas: is this one of the tasks in our current list of things to do?

    17:19:42 <gema> or something you'd like to add there?

    17:19:48 <txomon|nqas> gema: add

    17:19:56 <gema> txomon|nqas: ok, so make the changes on the wiki

    17:20:04 <txomon|nqas> will

    17:20:20 <alourie> txomon|home: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/TasksPrecise

    17:20:38 <gema> yep

    17:20:39 <balloons> you can find that link on the main page now, if you lose it

    17:20:49 <txomon|nqas> oki ty

    17:21:08 <gema> good, so from next week onwards we'll start working on it

    17:21:31 <gema> I will wait for lubuntu and xubuntu updates for charlie-tca and phillw

    17:21:39 <gema> so, hggdh any update from you? 17:21:47 * phillw is here 17:21:51 * charlie-tca too

    17:32:41 <charlie-tca> Oh, good

    17:33:21 <gema> ok

    17:33:27 <phillw> Just for information https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/ReleaseStatus/Precise is updated weekly by our head of Dev

    17:33:53 <gema> ok, thanks for the info

    17:35:15 <gema> ahhh, ok!

    17:35:38 <phillw> balloons: I'll pass the comment on to 'the boss' Smile :)

    17:36:06 <gema> excellent, so moving on to next topic

    17:36:17 <gema> [TOPIC] Edubuntu, Ubuntu Studio, Mithbuntu

    17:36:34 <gema> anyone from any of these releases that wants to give us an update?

    17:36:36 <micahg> hmm, shouldn't that be Mythbuntu?

    17:36:44 <ScottK> It should.

    17:36:47 <leworks> It should

    17:36:48 <phillw> yup

    17:36:50 <alourie> yea

    17:36:53 <balloons> yes, seems nice concise and too the point.. well done

    17:36:54 <gema> yes, I got your attention!!!

    17:36:56 * hggdh agrees Wink ;-)

    17:37:00 <gema> ScottK: any update?

    17:37:19 <ScottK> Not from me about any of those (not my thing)

    17:37:43 <gema> ScottK: sorry, I forgot Kubuntu

    17:37:44 <gema> Smile :)

    17:38:06 <astraljava> Hmmm... I'm not sure we (Ubuntu Studio) have anyone prepared for this meeting.

    17:38:14 <astraljava> I apologize for that.

    17:38:27 <gema> astraljava: no worries, it is good that we get to talk to you

    17:38:35 <gema> astraljava: and start the collaboration today Smile :)

    17:38:43 <ScottK> Where is the meeting agenda published?

    17:38:43 <astraljava> gema: Yes. I will try to pay more attention from now on.

    17:39:00 <gema> astraljava: excellent, are you guys doing any testing worth mentioning at the moment?

    17:39:15 <astraljava> gema: Not at the moment, there haven't been any big changes.

    17:39:26 <stgraber> I'm also around but I usually post QA relevant stuff for Edubuntu to the release mailing list for our meeting on Friday, don't really have time to attend one more meeting just for QA

    17:39:27 <phillw> ScottK: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/Meetings

    17:39:35 <ScottK> Thanks.

    17:40:38 <gema> astraljava: ok, thanks for the update

    17:40:55 <ScottK> Since Kubuntu isn't on the agenda, I'll just toss in that KDE SC 4.7.4 for oneiric-proposed is uploading out of my laptop right now, so we'll have that on tap for testing once it's built.

    17:41:02 <gema> stgraber: ok, we will try to keep up with your updates there then

    17:41:17 <hggdh> ScottK: perfect. I will be waiting Wink ;-)

    17:41:30 <micahg> o/

    17:41:35 <hggdh> s/will be /am/

    17:41:39 <phillw> ScottK: feel free to add kubuntu Smile :)

    17:41:41 <gema> ScottK: we'll add Kubuntu to the agenda for next week

    17:41:48 <ScottK> OK.

    17:42:15 <stgraber> gema: thanks. If we have anything big that deserves an agenda item for a QA meeting, I'll make sure we do it, for the usual, we closed 2 bugs and everything still installs/upgrades fine, the release mailing-list is fine.

    17:42:17 <gema> [ACTION] balloons to add Kubuntu and Ubuntu Studio to the agenda 17:42:17 * meetingology balloons to add Kubuntu and Ubuntu Studio to the agenda

    17:42:25 <gema> stgraber: cool, thanks

    17:42:40 <gema> stgraber: thanks for the update

    17:42:48 <gema> micahg: go ahead

    17:43:17 <micahg> gema: it's not about this, but about Firefox testing, may I continue?

    17:43:27 <gema> micahg: just a sec

    17:43:33 <gema> we are moving to other topics now

    17:43:50 <gema> [TOPIC] Other topics

    17:43:55 <gema> micahg: you can proceed

    17:44:10 <micahg> some background is here: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-security-announce/2012-January/001544.html

    17:45:01 <gema> micahg: can you brief us on what you need?

    17:45:02 <micahg> I'll be sending a call for testing e-mail later this evening to ubuntu-qa and some other lists, basically we're migration Firefox in Lucid and Maverick from 3.6.x to Rapid Release (9.0.1 ATM) and we need people to test the packages in -proposed

    17:45:33 <gema> ok, that's good, I am sure someone will be able to undertake the testing

    17:45:49 <gema> micahg: can you make sure that you clearly explain what type of test case you need run?

    17:45:56 <balloons> micahg, does that mean all supported releases will be on rapid release for ff?

    17:46:04 <micahg> balloons: yes Smile :)

    17:46:19 <micahg> gema: yes, I had forgotten to do that, will add before I send it out later, thanks

    17:46:27 <micahg> ..

    17:46:29 <gema> micahg: thanks
