Attendees: Sam, Jeff, Mats, Stew, Darren, George Kraft, Vladimir, Alexey
F2F. Firming up the schedule, and getting the talk assignments worked
out. We're willing to adjust the schedule for last minute ideas. (Not
discussed, but also an option: day 3 is not scheduled; will schedule at
the end of day 2 as an overflow day, so this may be an option.)
Qt 4 status. Jeff has the proposed appbat app, plus a FVT, seems to
work. At the end, the FVT calls for building the app designed with Qt
Designer; do we want to strip those or mark them optional? Stew: Perl
test needs a build environment, too; lots of testing requires stuff not
in the LSB. No opinions on optional; will go ahead and mark them that
way for now. Vladimir: started analysis on the database work, on
schedule to have the estimate at the F2F. Qt 4 tests: still stuck
behind the infrastructure issue. Infrastructure: Markus busy, hasn't
provided new Qt RPMs yet. Darren: can look into it, perhaps Thorsten
Kukuk. Will check on that with him. On SDK (header refresh), simple
thing, possibly should wait until the rest is done. Mats: switch will
fail, because of stub libs. Stew: has looked at it, played with
Makefile. Mats: change the version number for what tarball to pull.
Database. Mats: new data uncovered a bug in Navigator, since fixed.
Dependencies now shown. Used libXt as a test case; it certainly seems
that usage of Xt is greater than has been thought. At any rate, the
database can now highlight those interfaces used directly, as opposed to
the ones pulled in indirectly.
ALSA information now in database. Vlasimir: All symbols included, no
symbols added to standard. Looking for advice. Jeff: fallback strategy
is to use the Navigator to determine what interfaces are used by apps.
Will pursue on lists. Alexey: links to docs is in mailing list post,
should not be a problem. No good tests for ALSA known yet. Jeff:
discuss at F2F, need time on day 1 to discuss it for 3.2.
Printing: where does it live? Vladimir: should be separate. Jeff: how
to do it? Mats: add a database entry and spec tree directory, make it
build in the spec, sort out what modules go where, add info to the
checkers. Jeff: will do it. Mats: printing module already exists in
database, nothing else has been done. Modules really haven't been in
debate; module sets are the issue. Sets aren't really in the database,
but in the directory tree (booksets). Jeff: take Stew's spec and put it
in the right place, or work on it separately for a while? Mats:
seperately, make a proper book or books, then get it fitted into the
Next week's call. Should we do it? Darren: have a conf call. Jeff:
call time is currently scheduled for Xrender/Xft/Freetype. Darren:
probably redundant. Jeff: interest in keeping a conference line open
during the conference? Will ask on the list.
