    17:01:40 <balloons> who's all here? and secondly does anyone have any topics not on the agenda they wish to add?

    17:02:07 <shrish> am here

    17:02:21 <albrigha> o/

    17:04:16 <balloons> alright, some folks might trickle in late, we'll continue

    17:04:17 <balloons> [TOPIC] Previous Actions 17:05:06 * gema is here too

    17:05:07 <balloons> so, "alourie to feature AutomatedTesting wiki page prominently in wiki"

    17:05:20 <phillw> here

    17:05:38 <balloons> I don't believe he is here.. I'll go check the wiki and see if any changes were made. If not, we'll push to next week for his update

    17:06:38 <balloons> ok, not seeing anything Smile :-) next up is gema's action

    17:06:50 <balloons> gema discuss case conductor with mozilla folks and provide update

    17:07:10 <gema> balloons: you ended up doing it too x)

    17:07:20 <gema> we are going to have a chat with the Mozilla folks on Friday

    17:07:35 <gema> see how much of our original reqs they've been able to implement

    17:08:17 <gema> so I guess the update will come next week

    17:08:35 <balloons> thank you gema, I will roll that action now

    17:09:14 <balloons> [action] gema and balloons to provide feedback from mozilla caseconductor meeting 17:09:14 * meetingology gema and balloons to provide feedback from mozilla caseconductor meeting

    17:09:49 <balloons> [action] alourie to feature AutomatedTesting wiki page prominently in wiki, based upon list discussion

    17:09:49 * meetingology alourie to feature AutomatedTesting wiki page prominently in wiki, based upon list discussion

    17:09:56 <balloons> ok, finally the last one was for me

    17:10:04 <balloons> balloons to review test cases for i386,x64 and coordinate updates

    17:11:02 <balloons> I began looking into the manual test cases and sent out some mails to the list. In addition, I started going thru the tests on the iso tracker, but have not finished getting thru and speaking with others about the tests I found

    17:12:28 <balloons> Did anyone else take a look at manual test cases or the iso tests, or have any plans to do so? Smile :-) 17:12:55 * gema looks to the floor...

    17:12:57 <balloons> I *believe* alpha 2 drops next week correct?

    17:13:06 <gema> yes

    17:13:33 <gema> by drops you mean fails or you mean happens ? Smile :)

    17:13:38 <balloons> gema would you mind discussing that a bit after our scheduled agenda?

    17:13:46 <balloons> I mean happens Smile :-)

    17:13:49 <gema> I hope jibel is around

    17:13:58 <gema> he is the one coordinating alpha 2 from our side

    17:14:07 <gema> he'll surely send an email later this week asking for collaboration

    17:14:16 <balloons> ok, on my action I will roll it over again to next week and try and get some more work done on that front

    17:14:24 <gema> ok

    17:14:41 <gema> it'd be good for you to run some tests for alpha 2 as well, balloons, to get the feel for it Big Grin :)

    17:15:02 <gema> and feel the pressure of the milestone .. the adrenaline rush, it's quite good

    17:15:06 <balloons> [action] balloons to continue test case review and provide updates on progress 17:15:06 * meetingology balloons to continue test case review and provide updates on progress

    17:15:16 <balloons> gema, yes I will definitely plan on it

    17:15:23 <balloons> ok, let's move on 17:16:38 * txomon|home arrive

    17:16:42 <balloons> [TOPIC] Ubuntu Flavor Updates

    17:17:00 <balloons> thanks to ScottK I got the terminology right this week (i hope)

    17:17:12 <balloons> let's start with kubuntu -- anyone about?

    17:17:26 <ScottK> Sure.

    17:17:40 <balloons> anything to share ScottK?

    17:17:50 <ScottK> The KDE SC 4.7.4 update I mentioned last week transitioned to oneiric-updates on Monday.

    17:18:10 <ScottK> Riddell is working landing KDE SC 4.8.0 for precise as we speak.

    17:18:27 <ScottK> So for KDE stuff we should be ~ready for Alpha 2.

    17:18:29 <balloons> awesome -- and it releases next week also correct?

    17:18:34 <balloons> I mean KDE

    17:18:39 <ScottK> 4.8.0 is released today.

    17:18:51 <balloons> ohh.. feels early Smile :-)

    17:19:16 <balloons> awesome, so alpha 2 will ship with 4.8, great news

    17:19:28 <ScottK> The biggest concern for Alpha 2 is we had to skip Alpha 1, so the installer hasn't had a big workout

    17:19:40 <ScottK> We have some success reports, so hopefully it's all good.

    17:19:44 <ScottK> Tha'ts it.

    17:19:48 <balloons> thank you

    17:20:00 <balloons> how about xubuntu?

    17:20:24 <balloons> I don't see anyone here..

    17:20:46 <balloons> let's move on. I know phillw is here -- anything to report from lubuntu?

    17:20:50 <phillw> our main issue is bug 918401 which is proving problematical for our Head of Dev to sort out as the proposed fix works on his system but for none of us testers :/

    17:20:52 <ubottu> Launchpad bug 918401 in lubuntu-meta (Ubuntu) "Unity-greeter installed by default on Lubuntu, crashing on start" [Undecided,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/918401

    17:21:23 <balloons> ohh really?

    17:21:28 <phillw> you CAN login, but blindly. Other new bits for precise seem to be behaving.

    17:22:30 <phillw> it may be causing a problem with Wubi, but we're not sure. That's all from lubuntu.

    17:22:42 <balloons> thank you phillw

    17:23:02 <balloons> how about ubuntu studio? astraljava?

    17:24:02 <balloons> :-), we'll move on again.. Finally, edubuntu. anyone around?

    17:24:53 <balloons> ok, let's change topics then

    17:25:11 <balloons> [TOPIC] Blueprint updates / discussion

    17:25:40 <balloons> I know I skipped blueprints last week, but I thought I would provide a place if anyone wanted to mention anything specific regarding status or help for a blueprint

    17:27:19 <balloons> ok, sounds fine. That ends our scheduled topics.

    17:27:25 <balloons> [TOPIC] Other topics

    17:27:27 <balloons> We have two additional items to discuss. An update from me, and an update from jibel and gema on alpha 2. does anyone else have any other topics to discuss?

    17:27:49 <balloons> if not, we'll begin with my item

    17:28:05 <txomon|home> mine is just to mention I contacted cobbler guys

    17:28:34 <balloons> ok txomon|home we can discuss it first -- what did you find out

    17:28:35 <balloons> ?

    17:29:24 <txomon|home> Well, I contacted cobbler guys in their list, and they mentioned that the docs where prepared for the original cobbler project

    17:30:12 <txomon|home> And that they spected Orchestra guys could make a doc for the ubuntu version

    17:31:09 <balloons> txomon|home, did you speak to Roakasoax?

    17:31:12 <txomon|home> He said it was just a cascade style sheet and some kickstart addons, the documentation they had could be more use full

    17:31:38 <txomon|home> balloons, don't know that name...

    17:32:12 <balloons> whoops, have an extra a in there

    17:32:30 <txomon|home> I expressed badly, I meant that the more changes Orchestra did, the less reliable would be the docs

    17:32:34 <balloons> Roaksoax.. regardless, he would be a good person to contact on cobbler, specific to ubuntu

    17:32:42 <txomon|home> I can pass you the mail btw

    17:32:46 <txomon|home> (to the list)

    17:33:02 <txomon|home> oki

    17:33:23 <balloons> ok, sounds good

    17:33:59 <txomon|home> I will try once more with cobbler

    17:34:27 <txomon|home> I did some tests, and If you are using VMs to test, netboot is not necessary

    17:35:02 <txomon|home> the most... Useful item is the proxy cach�

    17:35:30 <txomon|home> that's everything

    17:36:28 <balloons> thank you.. I'm as curious as ever to see what you end up putting together for this..

    17:36:31 <balloons> I'll go ahead bext. I am undertaking a point to highlight everyone in ubuntu community who is working on quality, and I wanted to make sure I included some good info and contact info on the different flavor qa teams in addition to ubuntu

    17:38:01 <balloons> I will send a message to the list as well, but if someone from each flavor's QA team wished to send along (or better yet, point me to a web page) a couple sentence description of the work and a way of contacting that would be wonderful

    17:38:55 <balloons> I trust that makes sense to everyone.. if no one has any questions, we'll get to our last item

    17:39:52 <balloons> ok, gema and jibel your up. can you talk a little about alpha 2 and what the qa team has planned?

    17:40:04 <gema> balloons: jibel is not around, I think

    17:40:20 <gema> next week is alpha2 week and we welcome all the testing everyone can do to help

    17:40:25 <gema> watch out for jibel's email

    17:40:31 <gema> regarding how to proceed

    17:41:07 <gema> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/ISO/Procedures

    17:41:13 <gema> here is the explanation on how to help

    17:42:11 <gema> that's all from me

    17:42:53 <balloons> thank you gema. Ok, that concludes this week's meeting then. thanks for coming everyone!

    17:43:02 <balloons> #end meeting

    17:43:11 <gema> thank you for chairing, balloons !
