the irc logs here:        

==== Merges ====

mathiaz reminded that there was a list of merges that look easy on the Ubuntu
Server team Roadmap [1]. dholbach mentioned the sponsoring list [2] which has
a couple of packages that may be interesting to Ubuntu Server team members.


==== Heartbeat in Karmic ====

ivoks gave a brief overview of the state of the Cluster Stack [3] in Ubuntu
Karmic. The heartbeat package will be demoted to universe once pacemaker gets
compiled with corosync and openais 1.0. Version 1.0 of corosync and openais
should be released in the next two weeks by upstream. He also mentioned that
rhcs would also be demoted to universe once pacemaker has been promoted to
main. Most of the packages are available for testing from the ubuntu-ha PPA


==== DRBD ====

ivoks proposed the idea of using DKMS to handle DRBD. This would help in
backporting new versions of DRBD to stable releases (in a similar way that
kirkland is using DKMS to provide a kvm backport to hardy).

ACTION: ivoks to send an email to -server and -kernel about turning drbd into
a dkms based module

==== Hadoop packaging ====

ivoks reported that he received emails showing interest in having hadoop
available in Ubuntu. mathiaz asked whether there were some debian packages
already available somewhere - ivoks pointed to the Cloudera repository [5].
More investigation is required.

ACTION: ttx to look at Cloudera hadoop debian packages


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

Next meeting will be on Tuesday, June 23rd at 15:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
