3.2. Issues should be fixed. Qt 4 issues on ppc64, and app checkers.
Carlos: what was the problem? Stew: known issue in Qt 4.2, fixed in Qt
4.3. Will email Carlos the details.
SI should be OK, too, with the Qt fix. Stew: built, signed, in beta
dir. Waiting on new tests. Jeff will check.
Alexey: merge new ATK Manager into 3.2 bzr? Jeff: let's hold off.
Carlos: won't be doing a refresh of Qt 4.2, but can host the patch so
it's prominently available. Jeff: can figure out later today.
Repositories. Jeff is reworking those to make it easier to decouple
some things from the LSB version cycle. Have two repositories: one for
version-specific stuff and a "common" one. OK? Darren: doesn't matter.
Kay: how hard to get started? Mats: should just do one. Robert: more
than one repo is a waste of space? Jeff: user issue, will be separate
from the back end point of view.
New repositories won't be ready for 3.2 refresh; will do that the old
way and pull in the pieces.
Java. Joe sent a message summarizing the current status. Went through;
any issues? Robert: looks good. Jeff: point 5. Darren: distros do
need to ship multiple JVMs. Kay: 32/64 bit issue. Robert: should allow
distros to ship more than one version of Java. Darren: handle via
Robert: Java appchk? Jeff: does the JCK have a app side as well as a VM
side? Something to research. If the JCK doesn't have an application
checker, we'll need to do something; perhaps a bytecode verifier and
