KVM backport in hardy

kirkland asked for some assistance testing a kvm-84 package that he prepared for hardy. It’s available in ubuntu-virt PPA. The goal is to prepare an SRU for hardy. There was some discussions about the best way to conduct testing as the new version contains security fixes. It was suggested to go through the following workflow: ~ubuntu-virt PPA -> hardy-backports -> hardy-{proposed|security} -> hardy-updates.

ACTION: kirkland to write a blog post asking for testing of kvm 84 backport to hardy with specific instructions on how-to setup kvm 84 from the ubuntu-virt PPA

likewise-open 5 in jaunty

ttx reported that a FF Exception had been granted to likewise-open-5 and he had uploaded the package. He added that this was a new separate package from the likewise-open 4.1 packages as the upgrade from 4.1 to 5.0 required to leave the domain and rejoin it. So Likewise Open 5 will coexist with Likewise Open 4.1 in Jaunty. For the Karmic cycle we’ll work with upstream to propose a seamless upgrade for all users to the latest version and phase out 4.1. There was some discussion about the best way to document that behavior: the Ubuntu Server Guide and the Debian.News file seemed to be the most appropriate locations.

screen-profiles by default

kirkland brought up the question of installing screen-profiles by default on EC2 instances and thus running screen by default when logging into an EC2 system. zul, soren and ehammond1 already discussed it and were against. There were some concerns about overlapping key bindings. The discussion was deferred to the next release cycle.

Agree on next meeting date and time

Next meeting will be on Tuesday, March 24th at 15:00 UTC in #ubuntu-server.
