Hi everyone, below you will find the updates from the Desktop team from the last week. If you’re interested in discussing a topic please start a thread in the Desktop area of Discourse.
We also have our weekly meeting on IRC. We meet on Tuesday at 13:30 UTC in #ubuntu-desktop on Freenode. There will be an “Any Other Business” section at the end where you are welcome to raise topics. These topics might be discussed during the meeting, or afterwards depending on the time, depth of conversation, topic and so on.
Last week’s notes are here: Desktop Team Updates - Monday 10th August 2020
1 day work (back from holidays)
- Mostly catchup and sync back on what happened in between.
- dove into armhf autopkgtest failures. discovered it’s two tests that keep failing but need system logs when crash occurs. so setup old rpi 3B+ with groovy to run the failing armhf autopkgtests. But then lxd keeps running out of space (and i spent a while messing around with volumes and pools as a result). Tried the same on the new rpi 4 too with no change. so i disabled the tests and launched a build but dropped 6.4.5 in favor of focusing on 7.0.
- Thanks @laney for pushing the focal libreoffice 6.4.5 SRU through
Patching patches and peeling the onion of hunks that are no longer applying between 6.4 and 7.0
