Release Overview

Actions Pending

  • UDS BOF/Post Mortem
    • [skaet] Rework release process pages to make explicit who/role, where and when; and apply refactoring (merging pages, checklist, etc. to make timeline not require back/forth linking). - TO DO

Highlights

  • overall, reasonable progress on work items for alpha 2, but expecting it to start to slow for holidays soon.
  • python 2.7 transition progressing fairly well. Summary of what's left can be found: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bugs?field.tag=python27

  • new kernel (2.6.37-rc5) will permit re-enabling NX support for modules, and re-enabling a number of drivers that were disabled for the rebase.
  • natty upstart spec finalized, improvements planned are: debug stanza, override files, job visualisation, socket activation, D-Bus activation, chroot support, user sessions and visible job start/stop in plymouth details view.
  • OO.o builds are breaking CD images (due to python 2.7 transition and problems with python-uno) looking at options to work around.
  • desktopcouch 1.0 should release today, initial zeitgeist integration to be released next week
  • gcc/arm issues resolved, builds are progressing again for ARM team and Kubuntu.
  • unity foundations work mostly done, but will hold off on upload until January, to avoid dependency conflicts until python stabilizes.
  • still considerable backlog on the linker side in MOTU, that needs some help

ACTIONS

  • [robbiew] get burndown charts into uniform format
  • [skaet/ScottK] brainstorm with others on ways to help tackling the large number of linking failures backlog
  • [skaet] figure out a way of calling attention to wishlist bugs(per: http://www.uk.debian.org/Bugs/Developer#severities), that are actually feature dependencies between teams (bug:56679, bug: 688142)

  • [dbarth] update on open bugs from agenda
