New business:

Meeting opens at 11:00 with:

Conference bridge acting up all finally present at 11:08

SDK build on side arches for the beta were the sticking point, 
and cleaning this up has been the work of the last week for 
Mats and Jeff

SDK 4.1.8 seems to be building on all arches as of today's 
call, and adds the needed 5.0 capabilities

Russ requests that the email describing the release of this 
new milestone include specific examples demonstrating how to 
toggle between the (default) LSB 4 series, and the newly 
supported LSB 5 [beta] series, and Jeff indicates he will do 

Appchk, distchk and misc-test for all arches, and the rest for 
all arches EXCEPT for s390 / s390x.  Those for s390 and s390x 
will appear as the build slaves finish

Build order dependencies key off the SDK, so missing 
dependencies should, in theory not apprar.  Jeff mentions: 
Theory, and Practice, Distinguished

Collab summit -- we have a conference room confirmed.  March 
26-28, 2014 see: 
for details.  In addition to Jeff, Robert and Kay are 
confirmed attendees.  Plan is to also turn up a Google 
Hangouts voice and video bridge

Marist 'real iron' builders are delayed due to problems with 
install of Fedora 19.  Russ recommends that if a Fedora is 
wanted, that a F20 be used, as it is better (and will be 
longer) supported.  Russ has provided to jeff by email cpies 
of the relevant install URLs.   Also grabbing copies of the 
Red Hat 7 s390x beta ISOs at Marist make a lot of sense.  Russ 
has local copies and it the RHEL 7 final drops and the beta 
images disappear from:
can provide them (grab the PPC 64 set as well)  

Russ will attain a ClefOS 7 s390 and s390x instance, and 
requests access to two instances, installed with ClefOS 6, 
each with two 9G minidisks one for OS, and the other at /opt  
in this regard.  Marist (and the general public) may grab the 
latest, existing s390 / s390x ClefOS 6 ISOs at:

As Z hardware changes at a radically different pace than PC / 
'Distributed' respins of ISOs to 6.5 are really just a labor 
of love, and do not produce a different install than doing a 
6.4 and running updates

Back to the Collab summit, Jeff mentiones some additional 
topics for discussion (what to do about 31 and 32 bit arches 
in PPC and S390), among others.  Russ asks that a wiki page 
with 'hour slots' for proposed topics of discussion, and the 
URL mentioned in the mailing list so that remote participants 
can set their schedule as to participation times

Call ends at local 11:50
