with 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. Help in reviewing them is welcomed.

NUMA support for 64bit -server kernel

cooloney brought the question 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 list.

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 is a good place to start any triaging effort.

Bacula testing

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

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 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.
