LSB 3.2 release candidate. Big issue is the xts5 issues; seems to be
building with an extra symbol. Stew: working on a fix to the build issues.
Other issues: printing is failing on testfoomaticrip 13 on occasion.
Jeff will look at. Perl and Python seems to be doing OK; the issue
seems to be to make sure the right modules are installed. Mats: failing
three things that no one else is; probably related to network setup.
Schedule? Does the xts5 fix deserve another RC? Mats: xts5 works OK on
some systems, so fixing xts5 may not need a second RC. Since the
failures seem to be on more bleeding-edge systems, may not even need to
fix xts5 for the release; fix it later as an update. Jeff: build on
newer system and see if it regresses on older? Mats: depending on
non-LSB stuff, so non-trivial. Jeff: let's work on it until the Friday
bug call, then decide what to do. That will put the final release early
next week unless it's decided to do a second RC, in which case that
would be done next week.
Jeff: cert, pr system released, in use.
Dan: are hiring for LSB people, would like recommendations. Please send
to Ted and Dan.
Robert: LF collaboration summit; F2F? Ted: half-day meeting overlapping
with the collaboration summit, more focused on new people at the summit,
11th have a full day F2F, 12th can be an overflow. Sufficient? Robert:
maybe not, might want two days. Ted: did we need to do everything we
did at Novell F2F? Mats: the advantage is that we can force people to
focus on things, which doesn't always happen on the lists. Ted: have
some ideas, may bring up later, start a thread on the list. Robert: all
week, start Monday, break for the summit, finish on Friday? Dan: may be
a scheduling conflict for some due to board meeting on Monday. Ted:
hackfest on Monday? Jeff: less time needed? Robert: may need more time
to evaluate where we're at. Hackfest popular with several people.
Mats: blowing two weekends? Robert: late Friday flyouts? Ted: may
start earlier in the weekend, do something social. Will start a thread
on this in the mailing list.
George: can DTK Manager do multiple LSB versions? Jeff: yes. Dan: is
there a demand for 3.0 certification? Jeff: the cert in progress is
3.0. George: service packs. Mats: also, people sometimes don't want
desktop. Dan: does it make sense to do a "non-desktop" LSB cert
program? There seems to be interest. Dan: lot of work? Mats:
shouldn't be; pick the right subset of tests. Ted: do LSB 3.2 first,
talk about a subset later. Probably want it for 4.0 profile also.
Jeff: confusion. Ted: don't want an excuse, either. Alexey: DTK
Manager does support two profiles for 3.1 and 3.2 already: with and
