== Activity reports ==

=== Alexander Sack (asac) ===

 * ubufox SRU
 * network-manager SRU
 * knetworkmanager SRU

 * not included in uploaded SRU -> next round:
  * 303165: IPv4Settings not merged for ppp connections (NEW)
  * 258743: NM 0.7 Fails To Set Custom MTU
 * not milestoned, but targetted - SRU opportunities:
  * 291062: enable networking" unchecked/disabled when resuming from suspend
  * 272185: WPA Enterprise (disassociating by local choice (reason=3))

outstanding: network-manager-vpnc:
 * 283635: pkcs support missing (huge patch; hard to backport)
 * 262191: only save group password is not possible (should go in with pkcs backport - if at all).

network-manager-applet, -pptp, ubufox:
 * all milestoned done

 * tradmark review: first patches upstreamed; a bunch more to follow in the next week(s)
 * screening next security round bug list
 * final review and archive admin prodding for xulrunner 1.9.1 and firefox 3.1: now in universe; next: getting fennec into universe
 * drafting/sending out mozillateam meeting minutes.
 * finalizing nss/nspr SONAME change -> we want to use upstream SONAME and not debian one anymore. Goal is that ubuntu mozilla binaries can be used in non-ubuntu distros (fedora, suse).

network-manager / modemmanager:
 * merging NM 0.7 final to development packaging branch
  * ABI/API breakage will prevent a SRU -> painful backports
 * untangling and getting initial review on modemmanger patches for mbm modems; splitting up in clean hunks.
 * creating gitorious account to better share modemmanger code.
 * modemmanager PPA: modemmanager and mbm enabled kernel package

 * still in overload mode: next week i can start do sponsoring again.
