MOTU Meeting, 2005/09/22
ajmitch, sistpoty, slomo, siretart, Yagisan, ogra, Nafallo, dholbach, sivang,
\sh, dcraven, Mithrandir, shaga
Agenda (taken from the wiki-page):
1) tiber.tauware.de (Revu-Server): accounts for MOTU's, sudo-accounts etc.
2) UVF for universe and multiverse (ReinhardTartler, ajmitch)
3) Transitions, Testbuilds etc. Last workload to fix (StephanHermann)
a) CXX Transition is done. Bddebian could fill the morgue
candidates list with all apps/libs etc. which have to be removed from the
archives (for me that is yehia and gql)
b) Unmet Deps..most of it it's done..only some parts are left.
Haskell specialists welcome ..hmake ftbfs.
c) GL/GLU Transition - Can anyone give a short update on this? I'm
honest, I don't know the status of this transition.
d) Please check the test build logs and lists on Lamonts
Testbuild Logfiles. If something is not understandable of the output please
ping and ask infinity or lamont to clarify your problems. The testbuilds
itself are snapshots of a certain date, so they're not in sync with the
latest buildd logs/uploads on Lamonts Buildd Logfiles. If something
has to be fixed, please fix asap if you can and upload, but check beforehand
with the latest uploads in our archives. The more we can bugfix, the better
for the Ubuntu User.
e) .desktop files - If we can update/create/add .desktop files to
packages without .desktop files, please fix/add/create them. Actually please
check new upstreams from debian or source upstream repository/packages, if
they are not added in new versions. Universe Packages without Desktop
4) date and time of next meeting
Since Canonical sponsored a server for revu (tiber.tauware.de), the idea came
up to use this very machine for general MOTU business as well. dholbach
suggested to collect ideas for any web-frontends or other tools, that could
make MOTU work easier on the wiki-page MOTUWebTools.
There was some discussion on how to handle administration of tiber, and it was
agreed to have an admin-team, probably consisting of a few MOTU's from
different timezones, which can be reached by admin at tiber.tauware.de. User
accounts shall be given on request.
ajmitch pointed out, that - although there was UVF for universe - some MOTU's
didn't stick to it properly. A brief discussion followed, how UVF should be
handled for dapper. The conclusion was that this topic is deferred and will
be discussed on UBZ.
a) CXX transition is done
b) slomo stated that there are currently 88 source packages with unmet
dependencies, including main packages. Especially haskell-packages are
currently trouble-makers, so slomo stated that he could need some help
there. ogra and \sh discussed, that everything which is unfixable, with no
new upstream and users won't demand should be listed as morgue candidates.
c) unfortunately nobody knew the exact status of GL/GLU-transition
d) \sh encouraged us to check the test build logs on
e) \sh invited us to fix packages with missing .desktop files, when we have
4) The next meeting will be at 2005-10-19 20:00 UTC.
