UbuntuDistributedDevelopment Call Notes - Jan 20th 2009
Hi Folks,

Some notes from a call I scheduled with Daniel Holbach and James Westby
regarding UbuntuDistributedDevelopment.

== Right now ==

Some of the implementation work complete:

* Branches are available (read-only), but not in Launchpad
* People can generate patches that can be then used with sponsorship
queue in the current manner.
* History can be viewed easily.
* It is easy to find a diff between hardy and intrepid packages
(diffing with Debian is not currently implemented).

== Plan ==

* Merges will be easy.
* Stats will make it easy to see differences between Debian and Ubuntu.
* People wil hack in a change, commit to their branch and propose
* Jono Lang workng on Launchpad changes: Tim Penhey and Kiko leading

== Community Considerations ==

We discussed many of the community-related elements to be considered in
launching this technology:

* Documentation needs
* How sponsoring works
* Educating the community in these new processes

There will be no governance implications for this new process other than
MOTU Council members aknowledging this process as a valid method of

Education Campaign:

* UbuntuDistributedDevelopment Day - IRC tutorials, video tutorials,
* LoCo Involvement for Presentation - factor into release parties?
* Documentation:
o Packaging Guide
o Recipes
o Daniel to identify requirements

== Actions ==

* Daniel to identify documentation requirements for UDD.
* Daniel to identify current users and encourage use.
* James to ask about potential timelines.
