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

==== ubuntu-tips ====

nijaba added more rules to the server tips [1] wiki page. The main rules are
that tips should not be any longer than 2 lines of 80 characters and they
should be relevant to packages in main.


==== Merges ====

kirkland reminded that Debian Import Freeze [2] was in effect and that the
goal was to get all of the outstanding merges done by Feature Freeze [3] on
August 27. Working on merges is one great way to gain experience in order to
become a MOTU.


==== Drbd ====

ivoks reported that he had been working on a new package for Ubuntu that used
dkms. The package is currently available from the Ubuntu HA PPA [4] and is
waiting to be pushed in Karmic. The Debian maintainers have also shown
interest [5] in using a DKMS-enabled package.


==== Cluster stack ====

RoAkSoAx and ivoks worked on updating the cluster stack in the ubuntu-ha team.
pacemaker, openais and corosync have been fixed and some of them are available
from the Ubuntu HA PPA [6].


==== Php 5.3 ====

zul and ajmitch have been looking at getting php 5.3 in karmic. 5.3 has been
uploaded to experimental to get more testing there. The big difference with
the current version in karmic (5.2) is that the suhosin patch has not been
ported to 5.3 yet. The security team doesn't feel comfortable  with shipping
php without the suhosin patch enabled.

It was decided to push 5.3 into a PPA to get wider testing from the Ubuntu
community. Once the suhosin patch is ported to 5.3 and enabled in the build
5.3 can be uploaded to karmic.

An ubuntu-php-team should also be created to handle the maintenance of the php
PPA. There have also been some requests for backported versions of php. A PPA
and -backports are options to handle this use case.

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

Next meeting will be on Tuesday, July 14th at 15:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
