Here are the minutes of the meeting. They can also be found online with        
the irc logs here:        

==== KVM ====

kirkland reported he had been chasing down the virtio disk bug. It seems to be
related to grub: grub-install writes a broken bootloader to the disk. He is
looking into the bug and may ask for help.

mathiaz reported that the virtio network bug had been fixed. The installer
correctly detects network interfaces attached to a virtio device.

==== JeOS ====

mathiaz reported that a new option had been added to the installer: Install a
minimal virtual machine. The -virtual flavour has also been promoted to main
and is seeded in the -server isos.

mathiaz asked which host environments were supported. ESX and kvm are fully
supported. After some discussion it turned out that Xen was also supported and
should work. He also wondered if someone had access to  ESX and Xen to test
the new installer option and the -virtual kernel. nijaba said that the QA team
may have access to an ESX environment.

==== python-vm-builder ====

nijaba asked for sponsoring of the trunk branch[1] as it contains several bug
fixes. He implemented some missing functions to support xen and is looking for
testers. Both ESX and xen environments require some testing.

ACTION: mathiaz to look at sponsoring python-vm-builder.


==== ebox ====

mathiaz reported that an FFexception request still had to be filed for ebox.
The packages can be found in the ebox PPA[2]. ivoks volunteered to take a look
at the packages.


==== Agree on next meeting date and time ====

Next meeting will be on Tuesday, October 21st at 15:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
