== Apologies ==
* LukeYelavich - on vacation
* JamesWestby - at November Nexus
== Activity reports ==
=== Colin Watson ===
* Merged: clock-setup, kbd, console-setup, lilo-installer,
busybox(including fix for #293586, though that will need to be
backported to intrepid), anna, finish-install, netcfg, silo-installer,
yaboot-installer, grub-installer, palo-installer, parted, base-files,
partman-newworld, partman-crypto, partman-ext3, partman-jfs,
partman-xfs, partman-reiserfs, iso-scan (phew)
* Some debian-installer bug review, including cleaning up very old
daily-installer-* directories from the archive (#40186).
* Followed up to upstart/util-linux #273189 with a more detailed
description of work to be done (noticed during finish-install merge).
* Investigated casper #70566 at some length by way of sponsorship
processing; I have a cleaned-up version of the proposed patch in my
casper working tree now, but this is likely to need more complex fixes
in usplash in order to display non-ASCII characters properly,including
perhaps switching to unifont.
=== Evan Dandrea ===
* Prepared for and presented a usb-creator UbuntuOpenWeek talk
* Added a warning about what operating systems will be removed when
selecting the "use entire disk" option in ubiquity. Still needs to be
added to the advanced page.
* Wrote up instructions on using the Ubuntu USB disks. Still in
progress as I need to verify that they do not work on Intel Macs
(firmware issue) other than my aging 2006 iMac. If anyone has an Intel
Mac, I would greatly appreciate your assistance in this.
* Modified ubiquity to notify the user of what operating systems will
be deleted if they choose to use the entire disk. I still need to
provide proper i18n support for this.
* Dropped the timezone setting code from casper as it's unnecessary and
resets the time on every reboot in persistent mode. Looking into why
update-initramfs is disabled on the Live CD, especially in persistent
mode, with the hope of fixing LP: #292159.
* Made numerous fixes to usb-creator in preparation for an SRU for
Intrepid and a backport for Hardy. Merged with Mario's branch and added
=== Lars Wirzenius ===
