Posted Agenda:

 - LSB 5.0 beta status.

 - Post-beta work.  GTK3 seems to be the big issue; what kinds 
of things will we need to do?

New business:

Meeting opens at 11:00 with:

Snow in NM, MN and IN and more ... a groundhog hunt is 

As to the 5 release, a small build artifact in headers, 
removal of an unwarranted assumption, and a rebuild of headers 
seem to have un-blocked the build processes.  As such files 
are being shuttled around, preparatory to issuing the updated 
beta 2.

As to uplift in the 4 series, SDK fixes are in that is about 
it for the next round of updates

Buildbot seems to be sensitive to LOCALE, systemd also has 
some infirmities reported and fixed upstream, which cascade 
also into puppet issues

The GTK3 dial in is coming along slowly.  Testing building 
apps under it with the test candidate, and reports are most 
useful and needed

Collab Summit is March 26-28 --- a wiki page:
   - time based release?                     
   - goals for LSB                           
   - 31 / 32 bit arches and how do we address, going forward; 
IBM, old PPC, and new ARM; also, how are distribution tests 
impacted when we are in a 64 bit kernel
   - dropping IA64, but: IBM has decided that Power 8 will be 
Little-endian.  How do we address?

There are some interesting sessions in parallel to your all 
day block, so adjourning and re-convening are probable

Call ends at local 11:55
