Here are the minutes of the meeting. They can also be found online
with the irc logs here.


mathiaz reminded that karmic had opened and merging was one of the favorite activities of the Ubuntu developers these days. He also mentioned the list of easy merges published in the Roadmap. These packages should not be too difficult and thus are perfect to get used to the whole merge process.

MIT krb5 1.7

coffedude asked about the state of krb5 in Karmic. mathiaz explained that krb5 1.7 had been synced from Debian. libkrb53 will be removed from Karmic once the transition to libkrb5-3 has been completed.

Karmic Alpha1

mathiaz reminded that Karmic Alpha1 is scheduled for Thursday. Help in iso testing is welcome once the iso candidates are available.


dendrobates announced that the Server team will have 2 session rooms and a break out room for UDS. The sessions will also be randomized amongst the physical rooms so that we will not just get to sit in the same room. However it may be a little complicated figuring out where to go. ttx said that a riddle would have to be solved to get to the right room while kirkland hoped for a broken RNG.

More important though was dendrobates announcement that he would buy a beer for any server team community team members that shows up. dendrobates looks like this and becoming a member of the server team is a simple two steps process.

Web Mirror Manager

gourgi asked whether the web mirror manager blueprint would be discussed. nijaba pointed to the relevant blueprint in Launchpad which will be discussed in the Fondations track.

screen-profiles renamed to byobu

kirkland announced that the screen-profiles project had been renamed to byobu, a japanese term for elegant folding room dividers, aka folding screens.

Agree on next meeting date and time

Due to travels and UDS it was decided to cancel the meeting for the next two weeks.

Next meeting will be on Tuesday, June 2nd at 15:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
