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

Review ACTION points from previous meeting

There weren’t any ACTION point from previous meeting except finding dendrobates at UDS and making sure he offers you a beer. Several Server team members reported success on this task.

UDS local/remote participation feedback

RoAkSoAx was able to participate to UDS remotely by listening to the meetings and using the #uds-server channel. Sound quality was very good. Several members reported that Gobby was experiencing such significant downtime that it wasn’t really usable as a collaboration tool, and there was some confusion around which Gobby server to use. Videos from the videotaped sessions should be available in the next weeks.

Review progress made on the Roadmap

Merges are still under way, for example RoAkSoAx has prepared an openvpn merge and is waiting for a main sponsor to doublecheck it. We expect to update the Roadmap for Karmic once we’ll have digested UDS and started writing the specs.

Open Discussion

Several new heads were present at this meeting. alex_muntada is a Barcelona-based sysadmin that participated in UDS last week. He is interested in configuration management and cloud. snth is a software developer interested in config management and server user experience. jbianquetti and asanchez maintain all the servers for schools in Andalusia (Spain), currently running Debian. All expressed the desire to join the Ubuntu Server team: ttx pointed them to the GettingInvolved page, where potential areas of contribution are described, and to the #ubuntu-server channel for any questions. Everyone is invited to participate in the next Server team meeting, where a specific agenda point will be added to discuss new members integration.

Agree on next meeting date and time

Next meeting will be on Tuesday, June 9th at 15:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
