Alpha3 subcycle planning
Work Items for Alpha 3
Everything that's marked 'medium' or high is fairly sure to make it into
'alpha3'. 'Low' priority specs are targets of opprotunities and we'll do
our best to get as many of those done as possible. Please note there's
not been much change on this week but we pretty much expect it to be
No questions were raised in the discussion
A general status review was performed for specifications that were
considered to be a "high" priority that are < 30%. The specifciations
that were reviewed were:
jib raised the point that if you have anything you need f2f time with
the team or others on the platform team, make sure your code's in a
shape to get cracking staight away on monday.
Now that project has been announced, we have 4 external papercut
members, and 18 nominations so far. The next step is to discuss
measurable objectives on how we should approach the papercuts. After
much discussion, Thierry proposed that we review the papercuts proposals
in the next meeting. It should be quick +1 round.

zul provided an update on the current status and the next steps. zul
mentioned that the php5 apport hook is complete, and the eucalyptus
apport hook has been updated. However, there has not been any community
ACTION: zul to do another call to action for the apport hooks involvement
PHP 5.3 for Luicd
zul brought up in the meeting that Debian is moving to php version 5.3.1
for Debian Stable. It is currently in experimental and in the process to
moving to Debian Unstable. zul mentioned that his preference is to stay
with 5.2 since PHP applications that we care about (such as media wiki
and drupal 5 still dont support PHP 5.3). Daivey asked if I have thought
about what to with the "short tag" depreciation and mentioned that
upstream is shipping with it by default. After much discussion about
security, what it breaks, and to have it in backports the idea was to
send an email to ubuntu-devel to get a wider variety of opinnons.
ACTION: zul to raise php5.3 update on -server and -devel mailinglist,
outline which apps are currently not working with 5.3
Weekly Updates & Questions for the QA Team
Soren had perfrormed a UDW class on server automation which was great!

so more people are being notified of build failures. He is also working
on getting more of the qa-regression-testing run on a daily basis. As
well as automated ISO testing will be moved to the DC
No other questions were raised for Soren.
Weekly Updates & Questions for the Kernel Team
A summary of launchpad bug 494565 was done by jjohansen. Jjohansen
mentioned that the kernel team has changed the suggest configs to
builtin (virto, virtnet, and 1 scsi). It booted in limited testing. Test
images are available or you could have wait for the next kernel upload,
(which is expected to be on friday). There is some concern that configs
change will change the behavior so we need wider testing. It was noted
that these changes were reasonably risk free but there is still some
Assigned and to-be-assigned bugs
were cleaned up by kirkland and zul.
However there are new bugs there that has to be confirmed and triaged.
