Progress on the openSuSE build service? Russ: has used it, not for LSB
Best-effort. Jeff: issues remain; the new /proc spec, bug fixes, a
method for testing whether best-effort is being used. Should
best-effort be the default build state? Robert: best-effort should be
the default, I think.
Database reimports. Jeff: what needs to be done? Mats: no change since
last week, not much more to report.
Glibc uplift. Mats: no change, had some issues with build tools.
makelsbpkg. Jeff: anything else to do to make it official? Stew: Still
unofficial branch. Jeff: I can move that.
ALSA. Jeff: No tests; decide on trial use late in process.
libGLU, Jeff: tests? Mats: OpenGL tests in development; not sure if
that will include GLU,
Cairo. Stew: tests integrated into desktop-tests, still some high
failure counts. Jeff: doc link should point at gnome.org? Stew:
haven't looked at that.
libXext. Stew: import was done, not sure of the status on docs. Only
testing it indirectly (via the xts5 test suite). Jeff: plan? Mats:
nothing specific, will tackle the docs through a bug.
NSS. Jeff: issue with dependency on NSPR. Is it resolved to everyone's
satisfaction? Mats: we may not be sure. Jeff: Ron still working on it?
Ron: ISPRAS has been doing a lot of that work. Stew: working with the
tests, it does seem to need NSPR. Jeff: if we still need to do a
library import, better to do that sooner rather than later. Maybe can
discuss on the list, and talk about next week if needed.
Stew: filling in comment fields on the ProjectPlan40 page as the call
Jeff: SI. Antonio has been working on; chroots are available for
everything except ia64. Will be working on getting ia64 working ASAP.
Mats: did some testing of some really minimal chroots.
ISPRAS test improvement. Alexey: in progress, will deliver new tests
for libstdc++, LSB Graphics libs, GTK+, PNG, jade, Qt, LSB Core.
Jesper: will those appear in bzr? Alexey: yes.
App checker. Jeff: very good. Out of beta? Alexey: next week.
Multi-version tools. Mats: will probably need a review before we
declare it done. May be details missed; pkgchk and versioned dependency
issue, for example. The cmdchk utility may not be multi-version yet.
Java. Ron: very minor stuff, some things have crept in. Will need to
make database changes to include it. Mats: as in the bug? Ron: new
version of SQL will be coming. Jeff: trial-use decision in DB? Ron:
current SQL does not mark it as trial-use. Can we change it later?
Autotesting. Jeff: Virtualization has been troublesome. Will probably
need to assume QEMU as a baseline, move to KVM as the hardware adds
support for it. Has played with VM management, nothing specific to
Stew: what part of NSS is ISPRAS working on? Alexey: db work, will
check on that. Stew: want to make sure we know what we're working on,
so nothing gets dropped.
