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 the Community Hub (this site).
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: https://community.ubuntu.com/t/monday-19th-november-2018/8701
Next week’s notes are here: Monday 3rd December 2018
No change on release bugs from last week.
Installer work with Jean-Baptiste:
- A lot of testing of various local build of rootfs and ISOs : ubuntu-desktop layered, ubuntu-desktop classic, ubuntu-desktop ubiquity-ng, ubuntu mate, lubuntu, ubuntu-server live to ensure we don’t regress other projects.
Nothing pending on me rls-bug-wide side.
Installer work with @didrocks . Cf this report
snapd/ gnome-shell search providers
- Continued working on implementing D-Bus service activation for snap services.
PR #5822 (systemd user unit support) is passing with against head. I ended up needing to disable the new spread tests on CentOS 7, since the method I was using to start the user systemd doesn’t work with the old version shipped with that release.
