Here are the minutes of the meeting. They can also be found online with
the irc logs here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MeetingLogs/Server/20091209.
==== Scribe assignment ====
In an effort to share the burden, the responsibility and the community
visibility, the meeting minutes scribe role will rotate alphabetically
every week between the server team engineers. ttx will write up the
current minutes, and zul will write the ones for next week. The process
to follow is detailed in the Server team knowledge base. mathiaz can
give access to the ubuntuserver blog to those missing it.
Nothing assigned to team needing re-assignment. Some team members are
still assigned to more bugs than they should be actively working on, so
this might need more review. No red flag raised.
==== Weekly Updates & Questions for the Kernel Team ====
KSM has been turned on and should land in post-Alpha1 kernels. It
requires user space to use the madise system call to mark pages for
sharing. That's expected to be part of soon-released qemu-kvm 0.12.
jjohansen still has to go through and update the EC2 configs to be more
like virtual. On the table is also ramdisk-less images, -virtual kernels
with all reasonable disk drivers for root devices as built-in, and Hz.
This will be tracked in a bug that smoser will open.
ACTION: smoser to open bug for kernel team follow-up
==== Development sponsorship ====
Every server engineer with sponsorship capabilities is expected to spend
one hour a week sponsoring stuff. The easiest way to track that is to do
it every week at a fixed time, and combine it with Code reviews.
ACTION: zul, kirkland, mathiaz to sign up for sponsoring time on
Until Alpha-2, soren will be in the QA team, rather than the server
team, working on automating a lot of the testing we are doing for
servers. So far he has enabled a few test suites in package builds and
set up kvm-autotest to do scripted, interactive testing.
==== Open Discussion ====
Instead of rewriting all Ubuntu Server python code in Perl, we plan to
rewrite Jos in Python. Daviey encourages everyone to submit their Ubuntu
Server tips to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/server-tips.
==== Agree on next meeting date and time ====
Next meeting will be on Wednesday, December 16th at 14:00 UTC in
Ubuntu server team
