kirkland triaged a lot of kvm and libvirt bugs and stated that kvm seemed to be working better than it ever had in intrepid. mathiaz asked about support for virtio block devices. kirkland hasn’t tested that use case yet.

Ubuntu Server Survey

nijaba reported that the ubuntu server survey had reached 3000 responses. The launch plan has also been completed.


ivoks nailed down the issue with DRBD in intrepid. The userspace tools have to be upgraded to 8.2.6 to match the kernel module version. A FFexception request has been prepared.

mathiaz asked if the collaboration with the Kernel Team on DRBD could be improved. Whenever the kernel module is updated in the Ubuntu kernels the user space tools also need to be updated. ivoks mentioned that the packaging of the userspace tools should be improved during the next release cycle. mathiaz suggested to discuss this issue during the next UDS.
