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

mathiaz had a chat with bdmurray about a way to generate a list of bugs that have been fix for a previous week. bdmurray has a script that almost does the job.

ACTION: mathiaz to follow up with bdmurray about the list of fixed released bugs related to the ubuntu-server team.

Ubuntu HA team: Cluster stack update

mathiaz reported that the latest version of drbd had been uploaded to Debian. It was using DKMS as suggested by ivoks. The drbd package has been synced in Ubuntu Karmic.

RoAkSoAx updated the Ubuntu HA roadmap. We are just waiting for the Debian packages of pacemaker and heartbeat, since openais is already in Debian experimental, and corosync is about to reach it.

Mysql 5.1 in karmic main

mathiaz announced that MySQL 5.1 had been uploaded to Debian unstable and outlined a proposal to move 5.1 from universe to main. The two identified blockers have been solved:

  1. The test suite is run during the 5.1 build.
  2. In MySQL 5.1, cluster support is disabled. Upgrades from 5.0 to 5.1 are aborted if the NDB cluster engine is used and a message suggests to remove the mysql-server package.

Uploading 5.1 to main now would mean going through another library transition.

ACTION: mathiaz to send an email to ubuntu-devel@ outlining the proposal to move 5.1 into main.

Cloud power management

kirkland considers that powernap and powerwake are feature-complete. He is in testing mode and is looking for a rackable server that has S3 in /proc/acpi/sleep. Anyone willing to help out should contact him.

Ubuntu Server Guide

sommer has been busy updating the Ubuntu Server Guide according to the plan laid out during UDS.


jmdault resumed his work on getting the Asterisk stack updated in Ubuntu. More work is required and cooperation with the Debian team is going on. mathiaz suggested to write up a basic outline of a plan for Karmic in a wiki page.

ACTION: jmdault to write up a basic plan for Astrisk for Karmic.
