==== Screen Profiles ====

kirland announced that he uploaded a new version of the screen-profiles
package to jaunty. Versions for hardy and intrepid are also available
from his PPA[1]. He stated that it was totally awesome now and posted a
screenshot [2]. He is looking for more testers.

ACTION: kirkland to write a blog post about screen-profile


==== SRU for ebox ====

sommer reported that all the bugs had been updated and submitted to the motu-
sru team. zul uploaded relevant packages to intrepid-proposed which are
waiting for the ACK from the motu-sru team.

==== libmysqlclient-dev package (MySQL 5.1) in jaunty ====

mathiaz reported that libmysqlclient15-dev is currently a transitional package
depending on libmysqlclient-dev. Both packages are provided by mysql-dsfg-5.1.
Unfortunately that breaks builds in main that depends on libmysqlclient15-dev
since mysql-dfsg-5.1 is in universe. For now MySQL 5.0 is still the preferred
package and should stay in main while MySQL 5.1 is part of universe.

After some discussion it was decided to upload a new version of mysql-dfsg-5.1
that would provide libmysqlclient16-dev instead of libmysqlclient{,15-dev}.
libmysqlclient16-dev won't provide libmysqlclient-dev.

A new version of mysql-dfsg-5.0 will also be uploaded with the version
5.1.30really5.0.75-0ubuntu1 in order to restore a working libmysqlclient15-dev
package. libmysqlclient15-dev will provide libmysqlclient-dev.

ACTION: mathiaz to upload mysql packages to fix libmysqlclient{15,16,}-dev
packages in jaunty

==== Ubuntu Server on NAS devices ====

persia asked what would be required to turn one of his little ARM servers into
a complete NAS device. There was some discussion about which services would be
provided (NFS, CIFS, SFTP) and the need for a management interface. ebox may
provide the latter.

The first step however is to test whether cifs (via samba) and may be nfs are
working correctly on ARM. zul mentioned that access to ARM devices was a
blocker. persia volunteered to run an ARM install of Server through the test
cases to check the current status and what needs to be done. He is also
looking for help chasing down some of the bugs he might uncover during the

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