Review of remaining karmic-nominated bugs:
455832: Not a regression and not encountered in normal use: untargeted for release
451881: Only affects UEC, and not EC2, not critical for karmic: untargeted for release
410886: vmbuilder needs to have the patch from trunk merged into it: milestoned and assigned to soren
362511: Low importance, won’t get fixed for karmic: untargeted for release
455411: Harmless to users, too late to fix: untargeted for release
453495: Specific to qemu-only arches, can be dealt with postrelease: untargeted for release
453453: doesn’t seem realistic to do anything about this bug for 9.10: left at kirkland’s discretion
453467: not 9.10-critical, untargeted for release
407949: milestoned to release, assigned to smoser, will trigger a UEC/EC2 image respin
Review of the Ubuntu-Server-relevant tests on the ISO tracker revealed a few test cases that were not covered by any team member:
- netboot: Daviey and kirkland will cover those, as they have a local mirror
- upgrades: zul will cover those cases. This involves defining a test procedure, as the current one is Desktop-oriented.
ACTION: zul to write up server upgrade test case
We fixed ~36 bugs in 9 uploads last week. A few remaining bugs were mentioned during the review:
455816: Given that this is globally harmless and difficult to test between RC and release, it’s unlikely that this will be fixed for release. mathiaz will validate the fix though.
453456: Would be fixed only if log rotation is proved to be non-functional, and can be fixed in a SRU
455293: Fix is committed but is not worth a new upload. Will get in only if something else gets fixed
455625: This bug seems bad, though it still needs to be reproduced. Would get fixed in a Karmic SRU. nurmi is looking into reproducing it.
ACTION: nurmi to investigate bug 455625
This was reviewed separately and found to be in good shape.
Reference UEC appliance
The demo will very closely resemble what soren posted the week before last. The completely unpersistent appliance will be ready by Thursday.
ACTION: soren to complete demo virtual appliance
UEC appliance store
Integration with the “fake” test store was successfully tested. This needs now to be tested ASAP against the production server, if available. It can be tseted against Soren’s demo appliance but also the stock UEC image.
ACTION: mdz to chase down details on production image store
ACTION: mathiaz to test UEC integration with production image store
Current community doc (http://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEC and http://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEC/PackageInstall) needs to be worked on. kirkland, nurmi, mathiaz and ttx stepped up to help in that area. Discussion on splitting the work amongst this team will be held on a mailing-list of kirkland’s choice.
Assigned and to-be-assigned bugs review
455873 was assigned to zul, but since it is for hardy, release-related tasks should take precedence.
ScottK mentioned that clamav 0.95.3 will likely be released on Monday, so it’ll go to -proposed.
Agree on next meeting date and time
Next meeting will be on Tuesday, October 27th at 15:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
