NEW: Sander to remind people of string freeze date
NEW: All release team members to mail their thoughts on release
process. What worked, what didn't, what needs fixing.
NEW: In that email, include what range of hours forward or back
you can comfortably move for conference calls.
Decisions and discussions:
* Fifth Toe
This should definitely contain GNOME 2.0 applications only.
* Bug and bug triage status
"Things are good" -- Luis. We have avoided any blatent brown-paper-bag
horrors. The worst has been crash-on-start to do with the font capplet
(and other places where the same code has been cut and pasted). Many
of the crashes are from developers porting things, which is a good
sign for the future. Lots of triage still to do, with some co-ordination
with Bill Haneman.
Luis also mentioned a neat perl script he hopes will substantially cut
the time spent by the bug squaddies in hunting and marking duplicates
as duplicates. It's still in creation but looks at the top five useful
frames of a stack trace. Some discussion on false positives and useful
other things to include (eg version number of the app or package, which
can be very very helpful indeed).
Neat perl script at:
Comments on neat perl script at:
* UI review status
All proposed UI fixes are definitely in bugzilla and we're fully
expecting to make all hoped-for changes in time. Six are still open.
Querying bugzilla, 13 show up as having no patches attached, but
several of those are almost certainly fixed in CVS anyway. Docs
people need to be informed of them to update docs.
* String freeze announcements
It's the 19th July 2002 for 2.0.1 and 2.0.2. This was in Jeff's
"You are here" email, but Sander to remind people.
Jeff's "You are here" email:
* Release team future composition
* Release process thoughts
We weren't all on the line, and this one probably needs everyone
involved. Discuss via email and get a summary following this.
Need also to ask desktop-devel-list what it felt like from their
perspective, and the Foundation board for their thoughts.
* Future meetings
Next week the summit is on in Boston, with several release team
people there. Skip call next Friday, therefore.
As the team changes composition slightly, it's worth re-checking
what times we can all make it and whether we can make it more
comfortable for those on the far ends of the geographical/time zone
