the irc logs here:        

==== Openldap 2.4 SRU ====

mathiaz announced that openldap 2.4.9 had been uploaded to hardy-proposed.
Testing and reporting on the results is more then welcomed. He added that he'd
like to get 2.4.10 in hardy as well, but that would have to wait for 2.4.10 to
hit intrepid. zul also mentioned that three bug fixes from 2.4.10 are already
included in the 2.4.9 sru uploaded to hardy.

mathiaz mentioned that the nss_ldapd feature discussed at UDS had been
committed to upstream cvs. It should be available in 2.4.11. nijaba suggested
that we should target 2.4.11 for inclusion in intrepid.

==== Ebox and Ubuntu centralize server administrator spec ====

nxvl wasn't able to make it to the meeting. There was some discussion about
using  Augeas[1] as a backend for ebox.

ACTION: mathiaz to send send an email to the ebox devs about augeas


==== Spec status/review ====

ScottK asked what was the status of specification approval for intrepid.
dendrabates said he was still working on finalizing the list. ScottK
listed some of the specs he wrote  server-flavors[2],
clamav-spamassassin-in-main[3], amavisd-dkim[4] and waits for their
approval to start implementing them.


==== Proposed ubuntu server team PPA ====

zul brought up the idea of having a PPA for the ubuntu-server team. mathiaz
asked what it would be used for. zul said he'd see it used as a staging area
for -proposed. mathiaz asked zul to ping him if he came across a package that
would fit in an ubuntu-server ppa and not in a personal ppa.

==== text browser on the server cd ====

mathiaz highlighted the  recent thread on -devel[5] and -server about moving
w3m out of the standard seed. After some discussion it became clear that the
Server team would like to keep w3m installed by default on Ubuntu Server.

The discussion drifted to the topic on seed review. Once the -server seeds are
created, -standard and -minimal should be reviewed to make sure that server
related packages are not installed on desktop and vice-versa.

ACTION: mathiaz to send a reply to the thread with the position of the server

ACTION: dendrobates to review seeds wrt to the creation of the server seeds.


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

Next meeting will be on Tuesday, June 24th at 15:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
