Server Team 20080423 meeting minutes

Here are the minutes of the meeting. They can also be found online with
the irc logs here:

==== Review release-blocker/critical bugs related to the Server Team ====

mathiaz asked if someone ran into a bug that should be considered as a release

There was some discussion about the different kvm/libvirt/virt-manager bugs but
the most critical ones have been fixed.

kirkland and jdstrand uploaded a fix for the ldap hang at boot bug.

nealmcb reported a failed install of postgresql - mathiaz suggested it was
related to ubuntu-vm-builder instead of postgresql.

==== ServerTeam report and the monthly report ====

sommer heard complains that the Server team section in the monthly report was
too big. mathiaz said he would further edit the section to make it less
verbose. He also asked if the format of the weekly minutes were good: everybody
agreed that the minutes were useful.

There was some discussion about the content of the monthly report, whether it
should list ideas and projects that are worked on by the server team. mathiaz
said that the monthly report is about things that have been completed. It may
not be the best place to talk about ongoing activities. He added that there
should be a session about this topic at UDS and he would seek the input of the
Community team.

ACTION: mathiaz to make the server section of the monthly report less verbose.

==== VMware release times in the partner repository ====

owh raised the issue of having vmware-server available from the partner
repository the day hardy is released. It took some weeks when gutsy was
released. nijaba said he hoped that vmware-server would be available
faster this time. However this matter is in the hands of VMWare and the
partner repository team of Canonical. There isn't much we can do about

==== Ubuntu OpenWeek ====

mathiaz reminded that the Ubuntu Open Week [1] will be held next
week. There will be a session about the Server Team (given by mathiaz)
and another one about virtualization (lead by soren). There are lots of
other topics covered and the schedule is posted on the wiki page [1].


==== Other Business ====

nxvl wondered if it's a good idea to start merging now. mathiaz said to wait
until the intrepid repositories are opened, which should happen sometime next
week. We'll go into Merging mode then.

He also reminded that UDS is comming up and people should start to think
about the topics they plan to discuss.

==== Agree on next meeting date and time ====

Next meeting will be on Wednesday, April 30th at 21:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
