the irc logs here:        

==== Ubuntu Server Guide ====

sommer reported that he received some feedback on a few sections from the
Ubuntu Server Guide. However some sections still need to be reviewed: they're
listed in the wiki page[1]. Help in reviewing them is welcomed.


==== NUMA support for 64bit -server kernel ====

cooloney brought the question[2] of whether NUMA should be enabled on 64bit
-server kernel. No objections were raised except that it may be too late for
the Jaunty release cycle. This topic should be discussed for the Karmic cycle
at the next UDS with the Kernel team.


==== Ubuntu on EC2 ====

zul gave a report on the state of Ubuntu on EC2. The next beta image based on
Intrepid is being worked on. Next in the pipeline is an image based on Hardy
and the 2.6.24 kernel. An image based on Jaunty and the 2.6.28 kernel is also
being planned. Each new release will be announced on the ec2-beta mailing


==== Bugs from Jaunty Beta ====

mathiaz reminded that with the release of Jaunty Beta last Thursday the number
of new bugs filed had raised. Any help in triaging them is welcomed. The list
of new bugs related to the Ubuntu Server team[4] is a good place to start any
triaging effort.


==== Bacula testing ====

ivoks asked for more testing and bug triaging on the bacula package[5].


==== RHCS support ====

ivoks raised the question of whether Red Hat Cluster Suite should be kept in
main in Karmic. Fabio M. Di Nitto, the current maintainer, mentioned[6] he had
less and less time to maintain the package and was looking for some help.
mathiaz suggested to discuss this topic at the next UDS. Meanwhile ivoks will
make sure rhcs is in good shape for Jaunty.


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

Next meeting will be on Tuesday, April 7th at 15:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
