=== Call for testing of DRBD: Server Team ===

DRBD has been updated to the latest version in Jaunty. 8.3 brings in 
some interesting new features:

  * support for devices bigger than 4 TBytes
  * checksum based resynchronization to speed up resync processes over 
slow networks
  * support for stacked resource
  * RedHat cluster suite (rgmanager) integration scripts

Now that both the kernel module and the userspace tools have been 
updated DRBD is ready to be tested in Jaunty. Ante wrote up test 
instructions in a wiki page. Following his instructions and reporting 
the results is a great way to contribute to the Ubuntu Server team and 
help the shaping of the next release. If you’re already using DRBD in a 
specific environment and have access to a test setup, the Server Team 
would love to hear if this new version works well in your 
infrastructure. Let the team know of your findings at the next Ubuntu 
Server Team meeting or on our mailing list: ubuntu-server at lists.ubuntu.com.

== LoCo News ==

=== Arizona LoCo Installfest ===

Arizona LoCo, in conjunction with the Phoenix Linux Users Group (PLUG), 
held an installfest on Saturday, January 31st at the University of 
Advancing Technology in Tempe. Wireless internet was no problem, plus 
the team had routers available to patch CAT5 cables into for those that 
didn't have wireless capability. The installfest took place in an 
upstairs room, so the team was able to hang their team banner off the 
guardrail with Velcro strips where it was highly visible to everyone 
entering the building. The team reported a fair turn out for installs, 
and lots of LUG folks attending to help if needed. Included by the team 
was a demonstration of Platinum Arts Sandbox on a Dell Mini 9. The event 
was a successful collaboration between the LoCo and PLUG, and everyone 
had a great time with lots of great inter-state cooperation between the 
team and the LUG's.


== Launchpad News ==

=== Launchpad 2.2.1 released ===

The Launchpad team are proud to announce Launchpad 2.2.1, our first 
release of 2009!

In 2.2.1 Launchpad has introduced:

  * a unique signature for each Personal Package Archive
  * a way to introduce new translators to your team’s way of working
  * an easier way for projects to export translations made in Launchpad.

Included at the link are details about:

  * Signed PPA's (screencast: 
  * Help new translators find their way (Blog post: 
  * Upstream projects: (Help page: 
  * Full details of 2.2.1 (Milestone page: 


=== Exporting translations upstream ===

Providing translation work back upstream is now greatly simplified!

There is a lot of translation work going on in Launchpad, for Ubuntu as 
well as for other projects. There is also a lot of translation work 
going on for the projects, that is not done in Launchpad. This is 
especially true for many of the Ubuntu packages that have their own 
translation effort “upstream”.

For various reasons, translations imported from upstream projects may be 
altered in Launchpad. One possible scenario is that an error is detected 
in the upstream translation with no time to fix that upstream and import 
again, because the next Ubuntu release is imminent. The Ubuntu 
translator will then fix it in Launchpad and Ubuntu will have the 
corrected version. But now it is a matter of good community citizenship 
to provide that change back upstream.

So far, the only option here was to either communicate the changes 
manually or to download the whole translation file and provide that to 
the upstream project. Unfortunately this may not be easy to merge into 
the upstream translations which may have progressed in the meantime. 
This step is now simplified by a new feature that only exports those 
translation strings from Launchpad that were changed from what was 
originally imported from upstream. This export also includes 
translations of strings that were not translated at all before.

You can find information about the feature on the help page: 

It is hoped that this feature will find good use and that the upstream 
translations can profit much more from the translation work done in 
Launchpad. It is as easy as clicking on “export” and then forwarding the 
exported file to upstream.

Watch for more enhancements on the import/export front in the next releases.


== Ubuntu Forums News ==

=== PartyBoi2 interview ===

Matthew informs us that it has been a little while since he last had an 
installment of the interview series. With the new year fully begun and 
things moving back into a regular schedule, he thinks it is time to 
continue the introductions. Today we get to hear from Karl, known in the 
forums as PartyBoi2. In the last two years, he has racked up over 3000 
posts and helped tons of new users, he tries to focus on posts that have 
gone entirely unanswered as well as helping beginners with their 
adaptation issues. To read the full interview, please visit the link below.

=== 5 Things Mark Shuttleworth Has Learned about Organizational Change ===

Esther Schindler of CIO talked to Mark Shuttleworth, and he demonstrated 
how open source collaboration can improve the ability to innovate.
  * The wisdom of the crowd - If everyone is going in the same 
direction, then no one stands out, and new ideas and optimization of 
ideas may fall by the wayside.
  * It is necessary to harness both individualism and teams - Once one 
has the inspiration, it takes a team to be able to develop it.
  * Tough times are good - With hard times, people look for more 
innovative ways of accomplishing things with less.
  * Large changes are only possible when they have the potential to 
deliver radical improvements - Small changes won't cause people to want 
to change.  It takes large changes, radical improvements, to interest 
people in moving in a new direction.
  * The earth from space is the most beautiful thing most people never 
get to see - Seeing the earth from space gives a new perspective on the 
need to cooperate with each other peacefully.

=== Sibyl Systems Selected as Solutions Partner for Ubuntu Linux ===

Sibyl Systems has discovered the stability offered by Ubuntu, and is 
happy to be selected as an Ubuntu Linux Solutions Partner to Canonical. 
"In the past we have been hard pressed in our ability to offer a stable 
and easy to use alternative to MS based software. The linux platform was 
not ready for prime time as they say, but with Ubuntu that has changed. 
Not only do you get a stable operating system, but you also get world 
class software comparable with anything MS has to offer." said John J 
Rice, president and lead engineer for Sibyl Systems. 

=== Canonical Joins ARM Community ===

IQ Online reports that Canonical Ltd has joined the ARM Connected 
Community, the industry’s largest ecosystem for ARM technology-based 
products and services. Last autumn ARM and and Canonical Ltd confirmed 
that they are planning to bring the full Ubuntu Desktop operating system 
to the ARMv7 processor architecture, enabling new netbooks and hybrid 
computers. It will target energy-efficient ARM technology-based SoCs, to 
deliver an always-connected, power efficient, mobile computing 
experience. This version of the Ubuntu Desktop operating system will 
target the ARMv7 architecture including ARM Cortex-A8 and ARM Cortex-A9 
processor-based systems. 

== In The Blogosphere ==

=== 36% of Ubuntu Users Seeking Mobile Internet Devices ===

Blogger Joe Panettieri of works with u give the results of their weekly 
pole about Ubuntu powered mobile internet devices (MIDs). According to 
the pole 36% of participants absolutely intend to buy Ubuntu MIDs. 45% 
might be interested in a MID purchase depending on features, functions 
and price. 19% of participants expect to purchase a smart phone or a 
netbook rather than an Ubuntu MID device. 106 works with u readers 
participated in the weekly poll. He then details what he believes are 
some of the challenges that Ubuntu powered MIDs are facing. He blames 
netbooks as a major contributer to the delay of an Ubuntu MID device. Mr 
Panettieri thinks the netbook craze, coupled with emerging platforms 
like Google Android, have limited Canonical's ability to drive interest 
in the MID concept. 

=== Keith Tokash and Ubuntu ===

Blogger Keith Tokash describes his experience with switching from 
Windows XP on his work laptop to Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron. He covers 
programs and functionality that he needs and wants to have on his 
computer. One thing that he really liked is that almost all of this 
software was installed by default. His experience in switching from 
Windows XP to Ubuntu 8.04 has not been all positive, but overall he's 
incredibly glad he did it. He used to hate his entire computing 
experience, now he just hates his email client. What he really wanted to 
express in writing this article is that while you may have a mixed 
experience making this switch, it's entirely possible to do so. You 
don't have to be a Linux expert, or even a Linux power user, to jump 
ship anymore, so go for it. 

=== [Detux] 2 Years of Ubuntu ===

It’s almost 2 years since this blogger freed himself of Microsoft’s 
propriety, OS and he's even converted his wife (though she occasionally 
falls back onto MS Office when OpenOffice just doesn’t quite do it the 
way she wants). He's still using Ubuntu, despite playing around with 
other distros. He's found himself coming back just because of the great 
support forums and hardware support. With the added ability of being 
able to create a USB Live Disc, he was able to convert several machines 
including a Samsung NC10. 

== In Other News ==

=== Ubuntu pocket guide and reference book ===

Keir Thomas is pleased to announce that his new book, Ubuntu Pocket 
Guide and Reference, is now available. It's a compact yet comprehensive 
guide to all aspects of day-to-day Ubuntu use.

Keir's book make be purchased online from Amazon.com for a 
recession-busting $9.94. It's approximately 5x8 inches and 166 pages 
(ISBN 978-1440478291).

Uniquely, the PDF Edition of the book is available entirely free of 
charge from http://www.ubuntupocketguide.com. What's more, people are 
encouraged to share the PDF Edition file with friends, and even upload 
it to file-sharing networks. The PDF Edition is exactly the same as the 
Print Edition.

Since the website went live about 48 hours ago, the PDF Edition has been 
downloaded over 100,000 times. This makes it the world's most 
widely-read Ubuntu book (at least according to Nielsen book-sale 
figures), and possibly the most widely read Linux book of all time.


=== Ubuntu Nokia Experiment(a community project) ===

Joey Stanford tells us that despite the insurgence of Android phones, he 
still sees a large amount of Nokia phones (and Nokia employees) at 
developer summits and conferences. He has created the grass roots Ubuntu 
Nokia Users team in Launchpad complete with a recommended set of 
software for Nokia devices. This is an open group, anyone may join, and 
is not an Canonical project. This experiment (and team) has two aims:

  * Self-Help: Helping users connect to their Nokia devices (phones and 
tablets) in Ubuntu and getting the most out of their experience as well 
as discussions about how to get Ubuntu onto Nokia devices.
  * Comradeship: A social experiment to connect Ubuntu users with Nokia 
devices together.

Stanford also hopes that this experiment will draw in some developers to 
improve the experience of using Nokia devices in, and using, Ubuntu. 
There is already an existing community-led  Ubuntu Nokia Development 
group if you are interested.


== Meeting Summaries ==

=== Technical Board Meeting ===

  * Welcome Colin Watson - Colin Watson joined as the newest member of 
the Ubuntu Technical Board, his membership in the Launchpad group and to 
the Mailing List have been confirmed.
  * Verify outstanding ubuntu-core-dev applications - Daniel Holbach 
confirmed that there were no outstanding ubuntu-core-dev applications 
for the TB to consider, and that there was one pending in the MOTU 
Council queue awaiting further information according to their new process.
  * Calendar follow-up - The Ubuntu News Team have, as requested, 
switched to Google Calendar for the fridge and documented the procedure 
for adding meetings to it. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Fridge/Calendar.  The 
TB meeting has been added to this calendar.
  * Per-package uploader proposal - Emmet Hikory proposed a set of 
criteria for reviewing per-package uploaders.  The proposal is quoted 
verbatim here, however please note that this was not approved in the 
meeting.  The discussion was fairly long and quite constructive; the 
general consensus was that per-package upload rights do not waive the 
requirements of Ubuntu Membership. It was felt that a prospective 
candidate must still have shown a significant and sustained contribution 
to Ubuntu (albeit for a single package), and that the candidate must 
still be socially integrated with the larger development team.  Emmet 
Hikory will review the meeting log and redraft the proposal according to 
the discussion. The current candidates will remain on hold until the 
criteria have been approved.
  * Archive reorg update -
   * The notion of restricted layers has been added to the spec
   * Sections on how the ogre model will work and on some anticipated 
community factors have been added
   * The proposed ability to give permissions has been changed around to 
match current consensus

  The permissions has one rather curious feature it has a "core" layer, 
which remains necessary for the ogre model and for partial mirrors but 
the permissions on the "core" layer are simply "Ubuntu [generalist] 
developers", the same as for all packages in no layers.

  Next steps:
   * prepare rough set of requirements for the Soyuz Team, including 
transition plan
   * work on an example layer archive to be published on 
people.ubuntu.com for development of APT, etc.


=== Server Team: January 2009 ===

Mail services:

  * dkim was added during the Intrepid release cycle. Work keeps being 
done by Scott Kitterman to keep the milter support up-to-date: 
dkim-milter, pymilter, pymilter-milters have been updated to the latest 
upstream version in Jaunty.


  * Soren Hansen has uploaded a new version of the libvirt package. 
Amongst bug fixes the version available in Jaunty brings support for 
openvz. A patch to support opennebula has also been added but is not 
enabled yet. The related tool virt-viewer has also been updated and 
provides a Mozilla plugin package. The tools used to interact with EC2 
have been updated to the latest version released by Amazon while the 
latest version of virtualbox-ose made its way to the Jaunty archive. The 
2.1 version brings better support for 64 bit systems as well as full 
VMDK/VHD support including snapshots.

Collaboration tools:

  * moinmoin has been updated to a new major version. The 1.8 version 
brings in a major GUI editor upgrade, a new theme in addition to the 
usual round of bug fixes.


  * MySQL 5.0.75 is available in main while MySQL 5.1.30 is in universe. 
Some more work is still needed to make the latter fully working. One of 
the new feature provided by MySQL 5.1 is the embedded server library. 
libmysqld is already used by the new version of the Amarok music player 
shipped by the Kubuntu team in Jaunty.

Clustering support:

redhat-cluster has been updated to the latest alpha2 release of the 3.0 
branch. This soon-to-be-stable third generation of the code includes a 
new conga interface - the graphical tool to manage clusters. Related 
dependencies such as openais and corosync have also been updated.


  * Multiple uploads include the work done by Dustin Kirkland and 
Nicolas Barcet. After some discussions on the ubuntu-server mailing the 
default escape sequence has been changed back to ctrl-a. A few scripts 
have also been added to provide more information: a memory count script 
and a load average script. The common key bindings are using the F-keys 
to ensure that they work in both gnome-terminal and the tty console. A 
screen-profile-helper has been added to allow the selection of profiles 
as well as to install screen by default.

Squid proxy:

  * The default configuration has been updated to better support apt 
repository caching: the cached object size has been increased so that 
big packages are properly cached. The Release and the Package file are 
also kept for a longer period of time.


  * The tomcat6 package has seen the addition of a webapp 
auto-deployment feature to handle application load and unloads. One of 
the consequence is that installing webapp packages doesn’t stop tomcat6 
processes anymore.

Uncomplicated Firewall:

  * The 0.26 version has seen the addition of a new REJECT 
functionality. debconf questions have also been added to enable the 
firewall and set some basic rules. This is the first step towards 
integration of ufw in the installer.
