    14:12:15 <balloons> who all is about?

    14:12:27 <phillw> o/

    14:12:50 <balloons> phillw, I think this will be short and sweet

    14:12:56 <phillw> yup Smile :)

    14:12:59 <balloons> [TOPIC] Ubuntu Updates

    14:13:50 <balloons> Next week we'll have the alpha 3 milestone testing. Should be a good week, and the images are in a good state going in to the week. I, knock on wood, don't see us needing a ton of respins

    14:14:57 <balloons> Because we've reached the point in the cycle where features are landing (yay!), you can expect more testing of applications coming soon. Unity testing will be happening again this cycle among other things

    14:17:13 <balloons> I also was talking with the u+1 team and the folks running the dev version of ubuntu as there daily machine about expanding the package tracker to help their workflow with triaging problems, bug reports, and watching critical packages

    14:18:26 <balloons> The basic idea was to hand select some packages, and add some basic smoke testing for them. We'd monitor the versions as they update in the archive and we can keep a status on when things break and what bugs where found, etc

    14:18:38 <balloons> I hope to show an example and get more feedback soon

    14:18:41 <balloons> that's it from me

    14:18:44 <balloons> questions?

    14:18:53 <phillw> nope

    14:18:58 <balloons> alright

    14:19:04 <balloons> [TOPIC] Ubuntu Flavors

    14:19:22 <balloons> so phillw, updates from lubuntu?

    14:19:36 <phillw> bug 1007394 is still an issue

    14:19:38 <ubottu> Launchpad bug 1007394 in mdadm (Ubuntu) "Quantal daily fails to complete installation" [Undecided,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/1007394

    14:19:58 <phillw> currently awaiting one of the ppc testers to try something for the devs.

    14:20:17 <phillw> lack of firefox in ppc has been fixed.

    14:20:49 <phillw> nothing else to report, testing is going well on the whole.

    14:24:01 <balloons> yay!

    14:24:13 <balloons> browsing on ff is restorede

    14:24:20 <balloons> did you see the plant article phillw on ppc?

    14:24:35 <phillw> no, do you have a link?

    14:25:17 <balloons> http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/benmcollins13/ubuntu/~3/-IS64CHats0/community-conundrum-powerpc.html

    14:25:28 <phillw> thanks

    14:26:01 <balloons> np.. not sure if you know who Ben is or not

    14:26:08 <balloons> regardless, his lament is on target

    14:27:38 <phillw> well, provided their remains a kernel available, lubuntu are pretty committed to have a ppc release.

    14:27:44 <phillw> *there*

    14:28:06 <balloons> yep, it's a good thing

    14:28:24 <balloons> ok, any other flavors about willing to share an update?

    14:28:35 <phillw> seems like we're the last hope for them.

    14:29:06 <astraljava> balloons: Not really, I've been really badly out of the loop recently... Sorry.

    14:30:18 <balloons> astraljava, that's ok -- how's alpha 3 looking for you?

    14:30:24 <balloons> I know it's hard to believe it's coming already

    14:36:29 <balloons> alright, so let's finish up

    14:36:34 <balloons> [TOPIC] Other topics

    14:36:40 <balloons> anything else to discuss anyone?

    14:39:35 <astraljava> We're supposedly having that discussion today, but I really don't know how Xubuntu is at the moment. 14:39:43 * astraljava frowns

    14:39:58 <phillw> balloons: I replied to the plant article with a request for testers Smile :)

    14:40:49 <balloons> phillw, hopefully it helps ppc users, and lubunutu

    14:41:03 <balloons> astraljava, Sad :-( sorry to hear. I'm sure it will get sorted out

    14:41:18 <balloons> Well, I think that wraps everything up

    14:41:25 <balloons> thanks for attending!
