Default Server Team 20080528 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/20080528.

==== Ubuntu virtualization meta package ====

kirkland uploaded to his PPA [1] a set of packages that help getting started
with kvm virtualization. The next step is to get them into the intrepid
repository. mathiaz pointed kirkland at the NewPackages process [2].

==== Specification writing ====

dendrobates stated that people who chaired a session during UDS have to
write the corresponding spec now. The deadline for spec writing is
Thursday, June the 5th. Specs targeted for Intrepid will be added to the
Server Team Roadmap [3] and reviewed during the Server Team meetings.

dendrobates added to check if there is already an existing blueprint registered
in launchpad that could be re-used before registering a new one. If so he can
update the blueprint information (such as drafter, approver).

==== Discussion on current status of J2EESupport options ====

Koon is working on the J2EESupport spec [4]. He has listed all the available
options and has started to look into Tomcat and Geronimo. These products have a
modular approach where plugins can be installed to add additional components of
the J2EE stack. dendrobates said that modularity in packaging is desirable.

Koon raised the question of maven, as it cannot be used to build a package the
debian way: it downloads at build time all the build deps, dozens of jars from
everywhere. That would require a lot more packaging work than packaging
geronimo itself.

Koon will keep working on the matrix [4] and hope to have it completed by

==== Front end for ubuntu-vm-builder ====

kirkland created a simple frontend for generating the verbose arguments ubuntu-
vm-builder accepts [5]. It's javascript, so it runs in your local browser, no
posting of passwords and machine configurations over the net.

There was some discussion about rewriting the page using ActiveX - it didn't
get far due to a lack of interest in this technology.

==== Status of the Ubuntu Server Survey ====

nijaba reported that upstream fixed security issues raised by kees' audit of
the web application. The next step is a second audit so that limesurvey can be
hosted on the Ubuntu infrastructure. kees said he may be able to audit the new
version by Tuesday.

owh added that he joined the ubuntu-marketing team. He is looking at ways to
collaborate between the two teams. The Ubuntu Server Team survey could be the
first item of cooperation. A potential date for the launch hasn't been agreed

==== 8.04.1 LTS release ====

zul has been tracking bugs [6] and uploading fixes to hardy-proposed. He asked
for more testing.

==== Darwin Calendar Server ====

owh pointed out that Darwin Calendar Server is available in the Intrepid

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

There was some discussion about moving the meeting time. mathiaz will send an
email to the ubuntu-server mailing list with a new proposal.

Next meeting will be on Wednesday, June 4th at 21:00 UTC in #ubuntu-meeting.
