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.
