Meeting opens at 11:00 with:

We welcome Sam Spurlock, who dials in as rpm5 has a new 
release coming out soon.

Mats has been refactoring some networking tests, as there is 
some room for improvement to avoid some dependency 
assumptions.  Something of a variance between the promises of 
a POSIX man page, and the earlier test writer's 
implementation.  Patch, grant waivers, and address in an 
update, seems to be the approach.  see bug: 3524 [1]

Kay asks about adding milestones (not hard deadlines, so much 
as a sequence diagram).  Russ found this the other day, which 
uses custom bugzilla queries to populate a wiki [2]
Jeff knows the yocto admin (Michael Halstead) and will ask 
after borrowing some code.  Robert remarks that LSB.next 
history will probably need to be extracted from github commit 
remarks as well

Jeff mentions he was self-debriefing, along with Kay's notes, 
as to LSB.next [3]
to act as a transition 'Rosetta Stone' into the next phase of 
the LSB.  It is, of course, in a wiki, and one can 'subscribe' 
via a 'watch' (see the bottom of the page when authenticated) 
to see updates as they are committed.  Jeff is planning to 
send a 'broad outline of problems facing the LSB, and present 
solution proposals' This would be sort of a status of 
'LSB.next' current thoughts document update to his employer at 
the LF.  To be sent at the end of this week, so look in 
quickly with suggestions
As to LSB 5 initial release, one can CC into [4] which is the 
release railhead bug, with blockers
the P1 bugs are here [5], and the target in the wiki: [6]
    (long form) 
Native s390 / s390x hardware available -- thanks, Rick.  Jeff 
will transition into them, doing such under 'script' so that 
setup documentation may be be re-worked by Russ.

Power builders are updated to OpenSUSE 12.3 dues to some 
security issues.  There were bootloader problems which 
required 'local hands' from OSUOSL
