==== SRU tracking on server-related packages ====

ttx brought up the problem of making sure that 'fix released' bugs were
properly reviewed for SRU worthiness. The missing part today is someone making
sure everything relevant is nominated. The proposal is to get a list of fixed
bugs in the past week, review it in the server meeting and nominate relevant

ACTION: mathiaz to come up with a  way to generate a list of fixed bugs in the
last week for packages relevant to the ubuntu server team.

==== Preparing a 2009 edition of the Server Survey ====

nijaba announced it had almost been a year since the first survey had been
launched. He started to update the question set for this September. Anyone
interested in helping should have a look at the wiki page [1] and file bugs
against the project [2] with suggestions.

ACTION: nijaba to write a blog post asking for review of the ubuntu-server
survey questions.


==== Ubuntu HA team: Cluster stack update ====

RoAkSoAx worked on updating ipvsadm to 1.25 which includes support for ipv6.
ivoks is still working on the pacemaker update.

ACTION: RoAkSoAx to update the Roadmap section of the Ubuntu HA team with a
short description of how the cluster stack would look like in karmic

==== Cloud power management ====

kirkland released powernap and powerwake as two opensource pieces of the
puzzle. Hooks have been added to eucalyptus to use powernap to
suspend/hibernate/poweroff cloud nodes when unused and powerwake to resume
them when demand requires. UEC is now a "breathable" cloud.

kirkland added that powernap was actually generally useful for servers: sort
of like a screensaver, but instead of saving your screen, you're saving your
powerbill (and the planet). He is interested in other ideas, use cases,
servers where powernap can be used.

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

Next meeting will be on Tuesday, July 28th at 15:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
