At Tuesday's meeting of the Ubuntu Technical Board, two technical decisions
were taken with regard to the Ubuntu 8.04 release:

 * Automatic indexing in tracker will be disabled for Ubuntu 8.04.  While we
   value the functionality provided by tracker and intend to continue to
   support its rapid development by including it by default in Ubuntu, the
   side effects of automatic indexing have a significant impact on users
   regardless of whether they make use of tracker's search features.
   Instead, users who desire this functionality can turn on indexing by
   changing their preference settings.

 * The officially released architectures for Ubuntu 8.04 will be i386 and
   amd64.  The SPARC port will continue to be provided with build
   infrastructure, and Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, 7.04 and 7.10 will continue to
   enable SPARC deployments well into the future, but there will not be an
   official Ubuntu 8.04 release for SPARC.
