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:

Stable updates candidate discussed; seems to be working on a 
recent Fedora, even with SELinux enabled

5.0 proceeds with Mats hacking through database work and other 
POSIX spawn; re-syncing / uplifting with POSIX after the last 
major sync-up.  The prior was 2003; last major seems to be 
2008, and changes are confined to glibc in a large part


Jeff was looking into memcopy  and there is a later symbol 
version (2.14 as he recalled).  It turns out that some 2.13 
optimizations.  There is a memcopy restriction on not copying 
overlapping regions that formerly worked (memmove is to be 
used in such cases).  The optimization 'broke' the Flash 
plug-in, and Linus sought to have it reverted by the glibc 
without success; a workaround by Torvalds in Linux space was 
written.  Some memcopy / memmove aliasing ws performed at 
2.14, and invisibly 'does the right thing' per the restriction


Workplan goal for the next few days is to get the updates out 
by next week, and return to LSB 5.0 work
