Vladimir, Alexey, George Kraft

LSB 3.2 beta 2 released.  xts5 tests seem to be the biggest issue. 
Stew: not much of a change.  Build fix is in, could test that.  SIGPIPE 
is the biggest issue; disabling BIG_REQUESTS fixes it.  Jeff: does that 
drop tests we had in vsw4?  Stew: if we tested this, we did it 
differently.  Jeff votes for dropping.  Mats is nervous; sweeping a 
problem under the rug?  If it's a server problem, that would be good 
reason for the quick fix.  Stew: problem seen with non-xvfb X servers, 
and also upstream.  Jeff: can't release with this, what plan do we have 
for finding the issue before 3.2 releases?  No ideas.  Jeff: debate on 
IRC, figure out by Friday or do the quick fix if no new ideas.  Stew: 
will look at vsw4 to see what we'd lose by turning that off.

Other 3.2 issues.  Mats: need to make sure everything's in sync and 
expected in the DTK/ATK Managers (groupings of core, C++, desktop). 
Stew: bug in DTK Manager regarding caching, also bugs in the new core 
tests from IBM, other new tests.

Release schedule: beta the rest of the week, start on RC work Monday. 
Anything out there that could delay us further?  Mats: new core tests 
might need more attention.  Perl and Python might also need some more 
love.  Depends on how things go the next few days.

PQM is dragging Mats down.  Server issues due to the Torvalds podcast; 
Jeff is attempting to keep things as smooth as possible.

Jeff: 4.0 is coming.  Now would be a good time to look over the 
high-priority task list for 4.0 on the project plan, and send me email 
about what tasks you'd like to do.  We want progress on all 
high-priority tasks by the next F2F, so some may have to be parceled 
out, but would like to make sure people get tasks they like where possible.
