UDS Lucid preparation

ttx created a wiki page for 10.04 input from server team. mathiaz reminded that there will two tracks dedicated to the Server team like the last UDS.

Assigned and to-be-assigned bugs


A discussion about adding python-software-properties to ubuntu-standard took place. soren noted that if the request was to add the package to the default server install adding it to ubuntu-standard may not be the best place. zul will look into that with the Fondation team.

ScottK mentioned that it looked like courier was pretty badly broken at the moment and in need of at least a serious triage effort.

Eucalyptus Karmic SRU


mathiaz announced that a first round of bug fixes for UEC in Karmic had been prepared. Packages are being uploaded to -proposed. Help in testing them will be welcome once they’re accepted by the SRU team.

Daily EC2 images


smoser reminded that ‘daily’ images of karmic for EC2 are now automatically published twice weekly. Image removal is now covered by the new policy In short, 5 builds of each release/arch are kept in ‘testing’ (daily builds). When a build ‘falls off’, it is made private for 30 days before deletion. This policy covers kernels and ramdisks in ‘-testing’ also. The code is available in LP – feedback is welcome!

spamassassin review


ScottK pointed to the state of spamassassin in Lucid: the upstream project hasn’t done a new release in over a year. Questions about its fate (leave it stale, switch to svn snapshot, other solution) should be discussed during UDS.

ACTION: Daviey to investigate spamassassin status in lucid
