Sep 07 - Sep 11 Wrap-up


Upload new sssd package to fix lintian errors and pull two fixes from upstream. Brainstorm with upstream about testing the package.

Prepare and upload openldap 2.4.18 to Karmic once the FFe was granted. That should complete the last part of the specification and brings disconnected mode support on the client via the cache overlay.

Looked into using puppet to build an openldap/krb infrastructure to test all the directory related components on the client side (sssd, openldap pcache overlay). The idea is to be able to pull up and down complete environments within minutes using a combination of EC2/UEC and puppet.

Follow up on puppet promotion into main for karmic.

Ended up writing a custom puppet type to handle slapd modules using the default karmic configuration. This gave me a good overview of how puppet is working.

Imate-store packaging

Looked at packaging. Follow-up call with Gustavo. Should have a package ready on Monday in time for alpha6. More polishing will be done for beta.

Apport in the default server install

Add apport to the default server install as requested by steve beattie for the karmic-qa-apport-in-ubuntu-server specification.

Linux-virtual missing virtio modules

Chase down and confirmed that linux-virtual kernel doesn't have any of the virtio modules. Bug 423426 is milestoned and should be on the release team radar. This has a high importance as virtio vms cannot boot in karmic. Tim is working on it.

Mysql maintenance

Caught up on (lots of) mysql 5.0 and 5.1 bugs. Updated DebuggingMysql page in the process of triaging bugs.

Upload mysql 5.0 and 5.1 to fix a couple of bugs. Both mysql-server-core-5.{0,1} packages provide mysql-server-core which should be used by packages requiring the mysqld binary (such as akonadi).


Write up a script to get a list of ubuntu-server SRU bugs assigned to people. This produces the remaining list to be reviewed during the team meeting with the updated SRU workflow in the ubuntu-server team.


Reviewed checkbox merge proposal from Marc. Asked for a FFe as there is one new feature.


Arrange travel for LDAPcon/linuxcon in Portland, OR next week.
