Desktop Team Updates - Monday 20th January 2020

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:

  • Set up a Debian Unstable VM to test missing icons in gnome-software there.
  • Update GNOME Control Center dock patch to fix memory leaks, remove warnings, simplify and match existing panel code quality.
  • Implemented new theme selector in GNOME Control Center as designed at Yaru sprint.
  • Proposed MR to re-enable local backend in polkit, this will allow Debian/Ubuntu to update to the latest version if accepted.
  • Continued with IO tests on ZFS with fio.
  • Ported zsys machine tests to new API.
