Posted Agenda:
 - Stable update progress; need for SDK update?

New business:

Meeting opens at 11:00 with:

Jeff: Stable updates: froze on the 16th, building now.  4.0 builds
mostly done.  Still working on appbat; took care of buildbot issues,
now running into an issue with apache pulling in sqlite from the
system.  Need to tell the apache build to tell apr-util not to pull in

4.1 builds are iffy.  Most build issues are my mistake; didn't fork
4.1 branches yet for some things.  Going to branch those.  Stew: are
we done with 4.0 updates after this run?  Jeff: most likely, though
it's hard to predict.  Working with someone doing a LSB 3.0
certification and having test issues.  Might be nice to have a
stripped-down cert when modularization happens in LSB 5.0.  Robert:
didn't we want to avoid that?  Jeff: yes, but if this is still an
issue, might want to play with some options.

Other 4.1 build issue: libchk wants to link with SANE.  Mats: most
likely packaging is pulling in devel misc-test.  Jeff: we can build
misc-test w/o packaging; seems like switching to that might be the
best way forward.  Only issue: source package layout might change.
Problem?  (No objections.)

SDK update.  4.1.4 got released later than anticipated, and a number
of bug fixes intended for 4.1.5 got done and moved into 4.1.4.  Only
one 4.1.5 bug fix in right now.  Skip?  (No objections.)  So, August
update will be 4.0, 4.1, VIP; November update will be 4.1, VIP, and

Beta repos.  Hard to do a single repo with both 4.0 and 4.1 tests.
Maybe do 4.1 only (and VIP), and make 4.0 a tarball with instructions
on telling Dist Checker how to use them?  (No objections.)

Carlos: status of glibc testing document?  Jeff: not done yet, still
in progress.

Call ends at 11:43.
