    15:04:47 <cjwatson> #topic lightning round

    15:04:53 <cjwatson> Launchpad and archive admin tools:

    15:04:53 <cjwatson> * API queue client will be feature-complete once the current state of devel is QAed and deployed.

    15:04:56 <cjwatson> * Went through all archive admin tools based on the old queue script and either migrated them to the API (new-binary-debian-universe, kernel-overrides) or dropped them (new-remove-duplicates).

    15:05:00 <cjwatson> * Fixed privacy bug in PackageUpload API.

    15:05:03 <cjwatson> * Tweaked auto-sync to take advantage of new PackageUpload API work.

    15:05:05 <cjwatson> * Landed work to automatically copy package description translations between pockets (awaiting deployment).

    15:05:08 <cjwatson> Installer:

    15:05:11 <cjwatson> * Worked with xnox to track down and fix bug 1020574.

    15:05:12 <ubottu> Launchpad bug 1020574 in ubiquity (Ubuntu) "SystemError: Broken pipe while installing language packs" [Critical,Fix released] https://launchpad.net/bugs/1020574

    15:05:13 <cjwatson> * Removed reliance on an old X server argument for Plymouth transitioning (bug 1019377).

    15:05:14 <ubottu> Launchpad bug 1019377 in ubiquity (Ubuntu) "ubiquity-dm crashed with XStartupError in run(): X server exited with return code 1" [High,Fix released] https://launchpad.net/bugs/1019377

    15:05:16 <cjwatson> * Worked on tracking down bug 1023036. No real luck as yet.

    15:05:17 <ubottu> Launchpad bug 1023036 in ubiquity (Ubuntu Quantal) "Error on /usr/share/ubiquity/plugininstall.py", line 1687, affecting desktop images (preseeded install)" [Critical,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/1023036

    15:05:19 <cjwatson> Other:

    15:05:21 <cjwatson> * Cleaned up various bugs (mostly related to the switch to Python 3 or to recent package splits) in software-properties, update-manager, and ubuntu-release-upgrader.

    15:05:24 <cjwatson> * Some progress on converting the server image to use a squashfs for the base system.

    15:05:27 <cjwatson> * Fixed up compiler warnings in jbigkit, allowing it to be moved to main (bug 993304) and hence allowing syncs of tiff and tiff3.

    15:06:14 <stokachu> - Vacation next week.

    15:06:15 <cjwatson> Anyone want to volunteer to help out stokachu with sponsorships?

    15:06:16 <stokachu> ...

    15:06:28 <ev> - Short week; holiday on Tuesday.

    15:06:28 <ev> - Lots of work on the debconf GTK+ redesign:

    15:06:28 <ev> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ErrorTracker#When_there_is_a_Debconf_prompt

    15:06:28 <ev> - Built a new set of tests around the dialogs. There were a lot of things

    15:06:28 <ev> that were already broken that this caught, like the password dialog not

    15:06:29 <ev> handling a default one.

    15:06:29 <ev> - Implemented all of the dialog types. Just need to handle packing the

    15:06:30 <ev> select and multiselect types into a scrolled window when there's more than

    15:06:30 <ev> 6 items.

    15:06:35 <ev> - Started documenting how people can contribute to errors.ubuntu.com and

    15:06:35 <ev> dumping my personal todo list into bug reports:

    15:06:35 <ev> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ErrorTracker/Contributing

    15:06:35 <ev> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ErrorTracker/Contributing/Debconf

    15:06:35 <ev> - Sat down with Matthew to come up for a better design to the compiz/apport

    15:06:36 <ev> application hang dialog. The implementation is mostly there, but I'll need

    15:06:36 <ev> to spend at least a day on the changes he's going to create as a result of

    15:06:37 <ev> our discussion.

    15:06:39 <ev> - Continued discussion with Martin over my API for applications handling

    15:06:39 <ev> recoverable errors in apport. We have a fairly straightforward plan that

    15:06:40 <ev> involves passing the data over stdout to a special apport binary,

    15:06:40 <ev> nul-separated. This replaces the existing attempt at a solution which used

    15:07:13 <stokachu> i think he flooded himself offline

    15:07:17 <ogra_> haha

    15:07:29 <ev> what, me?

    15:09:21 <barry> status for two weeks since last wed was a usa holiday: rather weird couple of weeks because of weather issues, but anyway. bug 1018579, bug 1016170, bug 1019618, bug 823150, spun python-mode 6.0.10 for debian. worked a bit on dbus merge sid->quantal but it's tricky so stalled. i continue to work on port of xapian to python 3 via cython. mostly going well, but it's make-progress-hit-roadblock-rinse-repeat.

    15:11:22 <stgraber> - bug 1023437

    15:11:24 <ubottu> Launchpad bug 1023437 in ifupdown (Ubuntu) "ifupdown conflicts with netbase both of which own /etc/init.d/networking" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/1023437

    15:11:48 <stgraber> (DONE)

    15:13:37 <stgraber> stokachu: so that's 977947, 977952 and 977940 that are ready for sponsoring?

    15:13:58 <stokachu> stgraber: yea 2 of them are merge proposals i believe

    15:14:04 <stokachu> stgraber: ones got a debdiff attached

    15:14:16 <stgraber> stokachu: ok. I'll add to my todo, hopefully I can get to it this afternoon

    15:14:26 <stokachu> stgraber: cool man

    15:16:21 <cjwatson> #topic bugs

    15:16:47 <bdmurray> bug 1006860 seems to have a patch in it now

    15:16:49 <ubottu> Launchpad bug 1006860 in gdb (Ubuntu) "gdb crashes when loading core files (in is_ctor_or_dtor)" [High,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/1006860

    15:16:51 <cjwatson> anyone have anything we need to be looking at? as mentioned earlier, my attention's mostly on 1023036 once the python3 bit gets fixed

    15:17:17 <stokachu> other than the 2 bugs im in progress on, are there other multiarch that need attention?

    15:18:03 <cjwatson> bdmurray: seb128 and tvoss were discussing that earlier on -devel; seb128 was going to grab doko about it when he's next online

    15:18:43 <bdmurray> cjwatson: got it thanks

    15:19:25 <bdmurray> bug 1022864 just came into the rls-q queue

    15:19:25 <cjwatson> stokachu: there's bug 990761 in partner; infinity was looking at that yesterday, but might not mind having it taken off him. (I think my last comment in that bug may be a bit simplistic, since it's not clear that acroread has been converted to expect multiarch; there's more detail in the duplicate bug 998837.)

    15:19:26 <ubottu> Launchpad bug 1022864 in ubuntu-release-upgrader (Ubuntu Precise) "Oneiric to Precise upgrade test failed: User settings are not preserved on upgrade" [Critical,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/1022864

    15:19:29 <ubottu> Launchpad bug 990761 in acroread (Ubuntu) "duplicate for #998837 acroread 9.5.1 is not installable on Ubuntu Precise amd64 system" [Undecided,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/990761

    15:19:33 <stokachu> these last two finish the requirements needed for lotus notes on amd64

    15:19:42 <cjwatson> 1022864 is such a BS critical Smile :) 15:19:58 * cjwatson drops to high

    15:20:23 <stokachu> cjwatson: want me to put those on my list?

    15:20:48 <cjwatson> stokachu: If you wouldn't mind, I think it'd be helpful

    15:21:03 <stokachu> cjwatson: ok ive got them added to be worked on

    15:21:12 <cjwatson> Does anyone know what deals with gtk-theme migration? it's not ubuntu-release-upgrader, and I suspect it's something in desktop

    15:21:29 <ev> no idea

    15:22:04 <cjwatson> Maybe gsettings-desktop-schemas since that ships that gsettings schema

    15:22:11 <bdmurray> if it is affecting precise is the ubuntu-release-upgrader task really accurate?

    15:22:24 <cjwatson> bdmurray: Probably not, but it's inaccurate anyway

    15:23:09 <cjwatson> Sent over to gsettings-desktop-schema and desktop can worry about it

    15:25:44 <cjwatson> bug 1021293 has also come up for 12.04, and so far I haven't had time to figure it out

    15:25:46 <ubottu> Launchpad bug 1021293 in ubiquity (Ubuntu) "Ubuntu 12.04 install stalls when doing apt-get upgrade" [High,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/1021293

    15:26:23 <stokachu> i'd take it but i think im at my threshold

    15:26:39 <cjwatson> Yeah, I may still get to it after all but wanted to mention it

    15:27:13 <stokachu> ill add it to my list anyway and see if i can contribute

    15:27:37 <cjwatson> OK. Suspect it needs strace -f attached at an appropriate point, since it already has debconf debugging and that isn't being informative enough

    15:28:14 <cjwatson> #topic AOB

    15:28:15 <cjwatson> anything else?

    15:29:15 <stokachu> oh

    15:29:25 <stokachu> +1 is it recommended to use pbuilder or sbuild?

    15:29:41 <stokachu> ive just been using pbuilder but it sounds like sbuild can do some sort of resume building 15:29:43 * barry prefers sbuild

    15:30:05 <ev> stokachu: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FoundationsTeam/PreferredTechnologies#Building

    15:30:07 <stokachu> launchpad uses sbuild for their build service correct?

    15:30:28 <stokachu> ev: awesome! thanks

    15:30:32 <barry> stokachu: sbuild has lots of nice hooks, and when the build goes awry, you can do several things to help with debugging

    15:31:00 <stokachu> awesome thats what i needed

    15:31:03 <barry> stokachu: also: http://www.wefearchange.org/2011/09/sbuild-with-local-newer-dependencies.html

    15:31:23 <stokachu> barry: nice got it bookmarked Big Grin :)

    15:32:26 <cjwatson> stokachu: Launchpad uses an old fork of sbuild

    15:32:45 <cjwatson> One of these days maybe we'll get it current

    15:33:03 <cjwatson> But yeah, that would be my recommendation too

    15:33:12 <stokachu> ok sweet, thanks guys

    15:34:48 <cjwatson> all right
