Forum Council

An update from the Forums Council for May of 2013

  • Overdrank has been put on emeritus status per request. He has served as both a moderator and administrator during his time, he will be missed.
  • A new subforum for Forum approved Ubuntu Members has been created. We hope this will lead to greater transparency and involvement in issues aas they arise.
  • The Ubuntuforum Code of Conduct is being looked at - to make the CoC more specific in some cases, the Posting tips will be removed and posted elsewhere on the forum. The registration code will be a simplified version of the full CoC.
  • We had a visit from pleia2 asking if we wanted to look at getting forum information into the newsletter, we have asked the userbase for ideas.
  • We approved one new Ubuntu Member this month, Irihapeti -

Membership Boards

Technical Board

Meeting 2013-05-13

  • Chair: Martin Pitt
  • Other members in attendance: Stéphane Graber, Soren Hansen
  • Apologies: Matt Zimmerman, Colin Watson
  • Full log:

  • SRU request for custom unity-greeter indicators (Mike Terry):
    • One positive answer on the ML, no objection from other members. Granted.
  • openssl as a system library (Dave Walker):
    • Carried over to next meeting as Colin has a strong and well-founded position but could not make it to today's meeting.
  • SRU approved without waiting in unapproved (Jonathan Riddell):
    • Unanimous agreement that this is not a flaw in the defined SRU process, but a flaw in its execution. We do not want to give up peer review for what goes into stable releases, and rather want to address the workflow problem in the SRU team.
    • action: Martin to mail SRU team members about this

  • Brain storm review:
    • Due to radically decreasing interest from both Ubuntu developers (judging by the decrease of answers) as well as users (judging by the decreasing number of voters) the TB feels that it is time to end and its regular review.
    • The sole remaining maintainer (Stephane Graber) as well as the Ubuntu community QA team (who founded this service initially), represented by Jorge Castro and Nicholas Skaggs, all agree.
    • action:: Jorge to check whether could be kept as a read-only archive, and otherwise shut it down.

  • Chair for next meeting: Kees Cook
