As Grizzly is about to release its first milestone, the Ubuntu Server Team thought it was a good opportunity to give an update on Ubuntu Server activities around Openstack.

Folsom Cloud Archive

Aside from a few SRU’s which are working through the system, the Folsom Cloud Archive for Ubuntu 12.04 is available and ready for use.

Please report any bugs that you find in packages from the Cloud Archive here.

In terms of communication around the Cloud Archive, general announcements about milestone and release availability will be made on ubuntu-cloud-anounce@lists.ubuntu.com.

We have also setup a new ML, cloud-archive-changes@lists.ubuntu.com,  which will be higher volume, per upload notifications as new and updated packages land in the Cloud Archive:

For details on how to enable and use the Cloud Archive on Ubuntu 12.04 look here.

During the Ubuntu precise development cycle the Canonical Platform Server Team have been working on automating testing of Openstack on Ubuntu.

The scope of this work was:

  1. Per-commit testing of Openstack trunk to evaluate the current state of the upstream codebase in-conjunction with the current packaging in Ubuntu precise and the current Juju charms to deploy Openstack.
  2. SRU testing for Openstack Diablo on Ubuntu 11.10.

Openstack do a lot of pre-commit testing through the use of gerrit with Jenkins; we wanted to supplement this with Ubuntu focused testing to provide another dimension to the testing already completed upstream.

So grab a coffee and make yourself comfortable; this is not a short read….

Lab Setup

The Ubuntu Openstack QA lab consists of 12 servers; the primary server in the solution is an Ubuntu 11.10 install providing the following functions:

  1. Juju – used to deploy Openstack charms in the Lab
  2. Cobbler…

    • No action items

  • Weekly Updates & Questions for the Kernel Team (smb)

Minutes

Meeting Actions

  • rbasak to try precise on pandaboard
  • hallyn to swap rbasak for NCommander in arm agenda section

Review Actions from previous meeting

There were no action items from the previous meeting.

Precise Development

Daviey pointed to http://status.qa.ubuntu.com/reports/ubuntu-server/release-bugs.html and http://status.qa.ubuntu.com/reports/ubuntu-server/triage-report.html need some love. rbasak agreed to take bug 906735 (“package installation should create /var/log/puppet”), and SpamapS thought bug 898340 (“mysql clients statically link libmysqlclient in”) should be on the release radar.

adam_g completed charms for openstack, and SpamapS will review.

jamespage is off the stable rotation now, and will have time to work on the CI lab.

Daviey asked that everyone look for good bug targets for next week.

Ubuntu Server Team Events

Next week, some of the server team will be sprinting in Budapest, and Fosdem

Weekly Updates & Questions for the QA Team (hggdh)

jamespage put a few new iso install tests live, so we now have daily testing. patrickmw has put up a new precise dashboard reporting daily testing results at https://jenkins.qa.ubuntu.com. Precise ec2 images are broken due to a kernel oops (bug 911204). smb believes xen guests were broken by some upstream rtc changes. Openstack automated testing should be picking up in the next few days.

Weekly Updates & Questions for the Kernel Team (smb)

Bug 902951 (“CONFIG_VIRTIO_BLK shouldnt be a module”) was brought up, but appears to be stalled.

Weekly Updates & Questions regarding Ubuntu ARM Server (NCommander)

Daviey is concerned that ARM kernel bugs will be found late in the cycle. rbasak therefore agreed to try precise on a pandaboard.

Open Discussion

rbasak asked about bug 858878 (“lack of csrf protection in cobbler-web”). RoAkSoAx says it’s a security issue and therefore goes through a different process than SRUs, so he can’t do any more to kick it. adam_g asked zul to bake the next openstack snapshot in a ppa for a few days before the friday release.

Agree on next meeting date and time

Next meeting will be on Tuesday, Jan 17 at 16:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
