Default Server Team 20080507 meeting minutes


Here are the minutes of the meeting. They can also be found online with
the irc logs here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MeetingLogs/Server/20080507.

==== Ubuntu Virtualization Meta Packages ====

kirkland created a meta-package to depending on all relevant packages to setup
a virtualization environment. He wanted to know how these packages should be
named and which dependencies should be included. The outcome is that there
should be a total of 3 meta packages built from the same source: ubuntu-virt-
server (server-only packages, non-gui, packages for hosting vm's, in main),
ubuntu-virt-mgmt (virt-manager), ubuntu-virt-extras (other relevant packages
from universe).

ACTION: kirkland to upload new meta-package for ubuntu virtualization things
and ask for feedback on ubuntu-server@l.u.c

==== Merges ====

mathiaz reminded that Intrepid is open for business and that Merging is the
activity of the week. soren briefly explained what merges are and pointed to
the main and universe pages [1], [2] on merges.ubuntu.com.
