Default Desktop team meeting notes 2008-11-04

This is also available at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopTeam/Meeting/2008-11-04

== Present ==

* Martin Pitt (pitti) -- chair
* Alexander Sack (asac)
* Arne Goetje (ArneGoetje)
* Bryce Harrington (bryce)
* Jonathan Riddell (Riddell)
* Kenneth Wimer (kwwii)
* Matthew Paul Thomas (mpt)
* Sebastien Bacher (seb128)

== Apologies ==

* Scott James Remnant (Keybuk) - sick
* Chris Cheney (calc) - conference

== Agenda ==

* Outstanding actions from last meeting
* Jaunty status
* intrepid-updates bugs
* [[http://people.ubuntu.com/~dholbach/sponsoring/|Sponsoring Overview update]]
* Review intrepid milestoned bug reports
* Language pack status
* Review activity reports
* Any other business

== Outstanding actions from last meeting ==

* asac to help ArneGoetje perform a manual upload -- 'done'
* asac to talk to infinity to find out why Launchpad is breaking firefox langpacks -- 'done', should be fixed now

== Actions from this meeting ==

* Martin to upload current PPA langpacks to hardy/intrepid-proposed
* Jonathan to track down who is working on bug #290695, set assignee, and clarify status

== Jaunty status ==

Sebastien asked about the status of Jaunty. It is still frozen since the toolchain isn't completely bootstrapped yet. However, uploading to Jaunty already works, they will be held in UNAPPROVED until bootstrapping is complete. Thus merges can already be started.

== intrepid-updates bug status ==

Martin went through the [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+milestone/intrepid-updates|intrepid-update milestoned bugs]] which affect the desktop team, and assigned the ones with clear progress and no blockers to team members. The unclear ones were quickly discussed in the meeting and got assigned as well.

Notable problems:
* #271138 "mouse and keyboard unresponsive when gdm first runs" -- unreproducible; possibly related to #264256 (wrong gdm startup priority on upgrade), but that was ruled out already by at least some reporters
* #290695 "Adept allows editing filenames in Details view" -- Jonathan says that there is someone working on this; he will set him as assignee
* #292054 "Some wifi drivers take too long to associate" -- Alex cannot reproduce, he needs developers who can reproduce and help him track it down

== Language packs status ==

Arne reported that he built new hardy and intrepid langpacks ready for SRU. He tested that Firefox works again with the hardy ones, and still works fine with the Intrepid ones. Martin will upload them to -proposed.

Jonathan reported that Rosetta does not preserve context strings in .po files, which leads to incomplete/broken KDE translations. He discussed that with the Rosetta team. We will provide updated packages once this is fixed in Rosetta.
