a look and make sure there are no anomalies.

very broken

* Cloud images will also be respun.

Remember area of ISO testing, it's marked down on the corresponding work item.

==== Magical powers ====

ttx bragged about the fact that he could take on a triceratops with his bare
hands and the power of his look. jiboumans shattered ttx dreams reminding him
that science had proved triceratops didn't actually exist.

====  Weekly Updates & Questions for the QA Team (hggdh) ====

* Eucalyptus only works in all-in-one

==== Weekly Updates & Questions for the Kernel Team (jjohansen) ====

* switch to a 2.6.35 pv-ops kernel
* started to bisect kernel to chase down high load bug [0] for idle
  instances on ec2.
* Spamaps asked the kernel team to keep on rockin in the free world.

* SRU tracker [2] operational now.


====  Server papercuts (ttx) ====

==== Team member activity and presence: Eurekastreams ====

* mathiaz ran into Eureka streams [4] and wondered if that could be used track
team member activity automatically. jiboumans, ttx and Spamaps looked at it
and found potential.
* ttx has been missing recently is some presence tool. Eureka streams may not
help in that regard. Being able to tell people are "at work". Crosscheking
with calendars doesn't really help.
