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


mathiaz reminded that there was a list of merges that look easy on the Ubuntu Server team Roadmap. dholbach mentioned the sponsoring list which has a couple of packages that may be interesting to Ubuntu Server team members.

Heartbeat in Karmic

ivoks gave a brief overview of the state of the Cluster Stack in Ubuntu Karmic. The heartbeat package will be demoted to universe once pacemaker gets compiled with corosync and openais 1.0. Version 1.0 of corosync and openais should be released in the next two weeks by upstream. He also mentioned that rhcs would also be demoted to universe once pacemaker has been promoted to main. Most of the packages are available for testing from the ubuntu-ha PPA.


ivoks proposed the idea of using DKMS to handle DRBD. This would help in backporting new versions of DRBD to stable releases (in a similar way that kirkland is using DKMS to provide a kvm backport to hardy).

ACTION: ivoks to send an email to -server and -kernel about turning drbd into a dkms based module

Hadoop packaging

ivoks reported that he received emails showing interest in having hadoop available in Ubuntu. mathiaz asked whether there were some debian packages already available somewhere – ivoks pointed to the Cloudera repository. More investigation is required.

ACTION: ttx to look at Cloudera hadoop debian packages

Agree on next meeting date and time

Next meeting will be on Tuesday, June 23rd at 15:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
