Ubuntu Development Team Meeting
At this week's development team meeting, we reviewed the status of the proposed feature specifications for the Edgy release. There are now 90+ official feature goals for Edgy, and this list is nearly final. We also agreed to change the meeting time rotation so that it is more convenient for more developers.
At the Kubuntu Meeting we welcomed Kenny Duffus into membership and discussed several other issues. Thanks to nixternal for doing the minutes.
The next meeting is on Monday July 17th at 13:00UTC on #ubuntu-meeting.
All the KDE packages in main have been merged and updated to their latest versions. Most of the packages in universe have also been merged and updated. Many thanks to the great team of MOTU and soon-to-be-MOTU who have helped with this. We are now in a freeze while we prepare the first testing CD, Knot 1.
New Dapper Packages
KOffice 1.5.2 was released with lots of bugfixes and packages are available for Kubuntu Dapper.
And Amarok 1.4.1 was released with last.fm stream support and a new icon theme.
Rosetta pentru KDE
The KDE translators had an occasionally heated debate about Rosetta and the problems of duplicating work. Most of the issues raised are due to be sorted out by improvements to Rosetta over the next few months but if you are using Rosetta it could be useful to contact your upstream translation teams and see how best to get your work upstream.
Noi membri ai comunităţii Edubuntu
This week we welcome new Edubuntu community members, Lisa Savage (Alias Vegas) and Rodrigo Parra Novo (rodarvus)! Unknown by many, Lisa was responsible for the Edubuntu-Young wallpaper that got shipped in Edubuntu 6.06, while Rodrigo is the Technical Lead for Edubuntu and employed by Canonical Ltd. Rodrigo used to work for Conectiva and Nokia and his past experience will definitely make an impact to the next version of Edubuntu due for release in October 2006!
Edubuntu community members are known for their high impact and sustaining contributions to the Edubuntu project, be it on coding or non-coding work. If you would like to be part of the Edubuntu community, join us and have yourself added for consideration at the next Edubuntu Council at https://launchpad.net/people/edubuntu-members.

In The Press
Newsforge discussed the relationship between the Ubuntu sister distributions and their derivatives.
Feature Of The Week - Baobab
Ever needed to find out how large an entire directory was, including all the files in all the sub-directories off that directory? That's exactly what Baobab is for.
Baobab is in Ubuntu's Universe repository; install it through Synaptic (System->Administration->Synaptic Package Manager).
Use it by selecting a directory in Nautilus (Gnome's file manager, reachable through Places->Home Folder) then right-clicking and selecting Scripts->Open In Baobab or by choosing Applications->Accessories->Baobab.
The image below shows Baobab in action, with Nautilus behind it, both showing the same section of directories & sub-directories.
