Server Team 20100331 meeting minutes

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

Beta2 status

ttx reminded everyone that Beta2 Freeze was around the corner.

There are a few beta2-targeted bugs:

Most of the Work Items targeted for beta2 are not impacted by the BetaFreeze, except for:

  • puppet/uec-ec2: integrate upstream patches for testsuite (mathiaz). Patches are available from upstream. However mathiaz may not have time to integrate them in time for BetaFreeze.

  • id-mgt-ref-env: package latest sssd (mathiaz): He may not have the time to package this bug-fix-only update before BetaFreeze.

ttx mentioned the addition of a work item covering libvirt compatibility testing. kirkland said he planned to work on libvirt with jdstrand a full day.

ScottK added that clamav reached RC2 for version 0.96. Testing is welcome and packages are available from the ubuntu-clamav PPA.

Weekly Updates & Questions for the QA Team

hggdh reported he had run the stress and scalability testing on the UEC testing network for Beta1. There are 2 topologies left for testing. Multi-network testing still requires a lot of manual steps. kirkland mentioned that he had the hardware to test multi-network but testing that topology was time consuming.

ttx asked about adding UEC topologies test cases to the QA tracker. hggdh replied he would add them today.

hggdh wondered whether the daily -server isos should be tested on a regular basis. ttx replied that pre/post milestones were the most important images to test. If the tests are fully automated and don’t require a lot of hand-holding running them on the dailies could be useful.

Weekly Updates & Questions for the Kernel Team (jjohansen)

jjohansen reported that two bugs related to EC2 had been fixed in the latest kernel upload. Soft lockups are caused by a variety of things but they shouldn’t happen near as often.

Server Papercuts status for beta2

ttx reported that 8 bugs were fixed while 2 were left open. ttx would like to discuss how successful the project was and if it should be done again, even on non-LTS cycles. He also confirmed that the project was now closed for this cycle and new nominations wouldn’t be accepted anymore.

Bug zapping status (kirkland)

kirkland reported a successful UEC bug zap from last week. mathiaz mentioned he was running a MysQL Bug zap this week.

Community participation has been rather low for both the bug zapping and server paper cut projects. A session at the next UDS should be dedicated to improve Community participation.

Information about server survey (nijaba)

nijaba reported that the result of the Server survey were available to anyone in the community that might need it.

UDS-M topics

ScottK brought up the idea of having a session at UDS on what we wanted the next LTS to look like to have an idea of longer term stuff.

Agree on next meeting date and time

Next meeting will be on Wednesday, April 7th at 14:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
