Posted Agenda:
=================
  - Stable update status.
  - Next steps after GTK+ 3.0 for LSB 5.0 database work.

New business:
=============

Meeting opens at 11:00 with:

Administrivia: the bug triage logs are in process being 
migrated from Stew's hosting to formal integration in LF 
webspace

IRC logging mentioned in the call; Russ notes that 
CentOS points out at its IRC documentation at:
   http://wiki.centos.org/irc

| The channel is logged by the channel owners
| (and one assumes others, so what you say is not
| private nor confidential), and the logs regularly
| reviewed.

Appchecker testing is useful and encouraged as there has been 
some churn

Mats reports drilling updates between two new libraries to 
pull in needed prototypes (ncursesw related, as I recall) and 
the additional database tweaking.  A laborious process as it 
requires lots of manual work.  A good test candidate 
application to build is needed, but not yet found, to exercise 
ncursesw

   http://invisible-island.net/ncurses/ncurses.html
notes that there is a lot of history here

Jeff and Mats have been 'preening' the database to some degree 
and this is non-visible progress; gtk 3 seems largely 
complete; dbus looks like 'next up' for Jeff

discusses gtk-3

Back to housekeeping -- a new Buildbot web interface is up at, 
and a new all dancing, all singing, Javascript Web 2.0 front 
end is up:
