* UDS Update (Bjoern)
- three LibreOffice sessions, some highlights:
- we will do three daily LibreOffice builds in Canonical QA Labs:
- master without system libs
- can we tinbuild that for integration in upstream infra ?
- release with system libs
- best without tinbuild integration: breakages are more likely
- possibly: QEMU ARM build in QA mode.
- greenlighted investigating cleaning up scp2, my goals would be:
- make it driven by deps only, so that you can do "make
/usr/lib/ure/lib/lib_unosal.so.3" without doing a full re-build.
+ v. useful for quick hackery
- kill solver -- copy directly from $WORKDIR
- various packaging titbits
- http://errors.ubuntu.com/ is truely awesome
+ enter libreoffice-core and 'last month'
+ for Fedora (Caolan)
- Ubuntu will introduce staged updates, maybe an idea for the
Windows updater discussion?
+ staged -> goes to a few people first, then a wider group.
- quickly showed off bibisect, might be an idea for upstream GNOME too.
