Default Desktop team weekly report (2008-12-02)

No meeting this week, since lots of people are travelling.

== Activity reports ==

=== Alexander Sack (asac) ===

* ubufox SRU
* network-manager SRU
* knetworkmanager SRU

* not included in uploaded SRU -> next round:
* 303165: IPv4Settings not merged for ppp connections (NEW)
* 258743: NM 0.7 Fails To Set Custom MTU
* not milestoned, but targetted - SRU opportunities:
* 291062: enable networking" unchecked/disabled when resuming from suspend
* 272185: WPA Enterprise (disassociating by local choice (reason=3))

outstanding: network-manager-vpnc:
* 283635: pkcs support missing (huge patch; hard to backport)
* 262191: only save group password is not possible (should go in with pkcs backport - if at all).

network-manager-applet, -pptp, ubufox:
* all milestoned done

* tradmark review: first patches upstreamed; a bunch more to follow in the next week(s)
* screening next security round bug list
* final review and archive admin prodding for xulrunner 1.9.1 and firefox 3.1: now in universe; next: getting fennec into universe
* drafting/sending out mozillateam meeting minutes.
* finalizing nss/nspr SONAME change -> we want to use upstream SONAME and not debian one anymore. Goal is that ubuntu mozilla binaries can be used in non-ubuntu distros (fedora, suse).

network-manager / modemmanager:
* merging NM 0.7 final to development packaging branch
* ABI/API breakage will prevent a SRU -> painful backports
* untangling and getting initial review on modemmanger patches for mbm modems; splitting up in clean hunks.
* creating gitorious account to better share modemmanger code.
* modemmanager PPA: modemmanager and mbm enabled kernel package

* still in overload mode: next week i can start do sponsoring again.
