    16:45 <yolanda> ok

    16:45 <yolanda> let’s continue

    16:45 <yolanda> #topic Server & Cloud Bugs (caribou)

    16:45 <caribou> Nothing on my radar this week

    16:46 <yolanda> ok

    16:46 <yolanda> #topic Weekly Updates & Questions for the QA Team (psivaa)

    16:46 <psivaa> no updates from us Smile :)

    16:46 <yolanda> #topic Weekly Updates & Questions for the Kernel Team (smb)

    16:46 <smb> Hi, I have not really made much progress on the nested kvm issue. Did a bit of drbd8 investigation (bug 1185756) and looked into merging back xen-4.3 from Debian to reduce our delta. But I am a bit distracted at the moment by me moving next week. Which will also cause me not to be joining next weeks meeting.

    16:46 <ubottu> bug 1185756 in drbd8 (Ubuntu Precise) “drbd8-utils not compatible with linux-lts-raring kernel in 12.04” [High,Confirmed]https://launchpad.net/bugs/1185756

    16:47 <yolanda> #topic Weekly Updates & Questions regarding Ubuntu ARM Server (rbasak)

    16:47 <rbasak> No updates from me. Any questions?

    16:48 <yolanda> #topic Ubuntu Server Team Events

    16:48 <yolanda> anything apart from Cloud Summit and next ODS?

    16:49 <yolanda> #topic Open Discussion

    16:49 <rbasak> o/

    16:49 <rbasak> Need to nominate someone to drive ISO testing for 1) our final Saucy server images 2) subsequent releases. And do we need a process for this? See: http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/2013/09/30/%23ubuntu-release.html “does anyone have an insight on who is doing signoff for the server images?” –rbasak

    16:49 <rbasak> I’d put that in the agenda but I think you missed it.

    16:49 <rbasak> In the past, we end up with a last minute request from the release manager and scramble to find someone to do the ISO testing and put the results in the tracker.

    16:50 <rbasak> It’d be nice to have this planned in advance.

    16:51 <rbasak> jamespage or smoser: any comments?

    16:51 <jamespage> I’ll do it

    16:51 <rbasak> Thanks!

    16:52 <yolanda> ok, any more comments?

    16:52 <yolanda> let’s finish then…

    16:52 <yolanda> #topic Announce next meeting date and time

    16:52 <yolanda> Next meeting will be on Tue 8th of October

    16:52 <yolanda> chair will be adam_g
