Note: Dependency tree for LSB 5.0 release:

New business:

Meeting opens at 11:00 with:

Beta 2 .. other arch build slaves being dialed up in support 
of this here, so we cover all arches.  The power damaged x86_64 build 
slave at Jeff L's residence has been replaced after a unit was 
killed off due to power infirmities

VCS forks done for 5.0 content which were forked off the 4.1 
updates.  The latest binaries hot off the builders end up at 
either: /pub/lsb/snapshot/ or /pub/lsb/staging

Understand that this is traditionally S/390 centric, but 

FOSDEM 2014 presentation -- Russ will not be able to attend, 
but Jeff J is (hopefully) able to cover

Feature based release of 5 has not worked as well as hoped -- 
we have cut back a lot since the 'road-mapping' two years ago 
for what 5 will look like.  We are so resource constrained 
that that the vision there was not attainable

Release cadence: Jeff L raises time based again; Russ asks 
that be taken to the mailing list.  ARM lsb also had some 
action this week -- Debian in arm-32, RHT in the arm-64 camp.  
The 'omit all the desktop stuff' modularization has not 
progressed as far as we had hoped for LSB 5

31 bit, 32 but, and 64 bit is a discussion that needs to be 
carried forward to the mailing list, it seems.  Real 
performance numbers are always welcomed, as are non-encumbered 
[FOSS license wise] test harnesses

Call ends at 11:50
