* Oxf13 15:02
* wwoods 15:02
jlaska Oxf13: welcome from CEST 15:03
jlaska wwoods arrived in a shoe? 15:04
jlaska do we have adamw lurking in the shadows? 15:04
jlaska if not, we'll save the F-14-Beta update until the end 15:04
* dgilmore is around 15:05
jlaska dgilmore: hi 15:05
jlaska okay, let's get started ... 15:05
saccia morning people :-) 15:05
jlaska saccia: howdy 15:05
jlaska #topic Previous Meeting follow-up 15:05
jlaska This will be quick ... since I see no action items from last weeks meetbot minutes 15:06
jlaska shout if I missed something, otherwise I'll move on 15:06
jlaska alright ... skipping F-14-Beta status for now ... we'll come back to that when adamw has arrived 15:07
jlaska #topic Fedora 14 Test Days 15:07
jlaska The installer keymap/lang event last week seems to have been quite successful in terms of bugs 15:07
jlaska looks like good participation on the wiki, that's always positive 15:08
jlaska #info installer keymap/lang test day recap - 15:08
jlaska in case you aren't subscribed to test@ or test-announce@ see the link above for the recap from Igor 15:08
jlaska next up ... Virtualization this Thursday 15:09
jlaska #info Sep 23 - Virtualization Test Day - 15:09
jlaska jforbes: nice, the wiki is coming along 15:09
jlaska jforbes: anything we can do to help keep this event focused? 15:10
jforbes jlaska: nope, getting the last of it up today, and going to send out an email to fedora-vert 15:10
jforbes err virt even :) 15:10
jlaska heh ... okay, adamw or I (anyone else encouraged) can hit up Fedora planet with a post about the event as well 15:11
jforbes Yeah, I will do that too 15:11
jlaska jforbes: were there specific features you wanted covered for this event, or is this more of a general virt testing theme? 15:11
jforbes more general, but spice will be covered 15:12
* jlaska always worried that we try to fit too much into a single virt test day 15:12
jlaska hmm, wonder if it would make sense to theme it around spice? 15:12
hircus some of the packages listed in "Update your machine" are not the latest as of today. Perhaps the page can be updated? esp. for the kernel version 15:12
jforbes Not sure how much of an audience spice will have 15:12
jforbes hircus: The page will be updated on wednesday, as there will be updates between now and then 15:13
jlaska jforbes: is that hardware specific, or just new enough that we wouldn't have a lot of participation 15:13
jforbes jlaska: both limited audience due to desktop nature, and lack of libvirt/virt-manager integration will make it less user/tester friendly 15:14
jlaska jforbes: aah, I see (re: the integration portion) 15:14
jforbes But we also have people who will come to test that who would not otherwise participate, it does have a lot of interest 15:14
jlaska nice! 15:15
jlaska jforbes: well, shout if you need help/guidance on the wiki setup (shouting in #fedora-qa helps) 15:16
jforbes jlaska: will do, thanks 15:16
jlaska following virtualization, we have the always well attended ... <drumroll> 15:16
jlaska #info Sept 28-30 - Graphics test week 15:16
jlaska Adam has wiki pages in place already, so it looks like things are in good shape 15:16
jlaska I'm sure we'll know more later in the week 15:17
jlaska that's all I had on test days 15:17
jlaska next up ... autoqa 15:17
jlaska #topic AutoQA Package Update Acceptance 15:17
jlaska wwoods: do you want to kick things off? 15:18
* kparal noticed a flood of new patches lately 15:18
jlaska kparal: you can blame me for some of those 15:19
kparal how much can happen in just a few days 15:19
kparal until wwoods wake up, I'll just note that I presented AutoQA in FUDCon this weekend 15:20
kparal you can see the slides here: 15:20
kparal unfortunately there are no recordings of the talk 15:20
jlaska well, I pushed out autoqa-0.4.1-1, and then tried to fix several quick bugs I found so you had a mostly functional autoqa for your talk (autoqa-0.4.2-1) 15:20
* wwoods appears 15:20
jlaska kparal: nice blog posts on the subject as well 15:20
Oxf13 it was a nice talk 15:21
Oxf13 there was some genuine interest in the audience, and I apologize for hijacking the talk by answering some of the questions :) 15:21
kparal Oxf13: thank you for that 15:21
* kparal leaves mic to wwoods 15:22
wwoods so, work on depcheck continues, albeit slowly 15:22
jlaska #info kparal gave AutoQA presentation at FUDCon Zurich - 15:22
wwoods more interesting, we merged the 'multitests' branch into master, so now we should have proper support for multihook tests and things 15:23
wwoods but that's all kparal and jskladan's work, so hooray for them 15:23
jlaska which makes me wonder whether the test result mails should prefix the subject with the hookname? But that's a detail for autoqa-devel@ 15:23
wwoods jlaska: is that stuff in 0.4.2 or are we still shooting for an 0.4.5 (or similar) release for that? 15:24
wwoods jlaska: good point - and yes, let's discuss that on the list 15:24
lmacken wwoods: bodhi should start utilizing the new pending tags today... rolling the code out as we speak. 15:24
jlaska wwoods: 0.4.2 is the current release ... mainly due to my failure to read the list before tagging 0.4.1 15:24
wwoods lmacken: excellent! jskladan gave me some code demonstrating how we can use mash with or without a tag 15:25
wwoods so I'll be writing some unittests to prove the mashing / multilib stuff works as expected in depcheck 15:25
lmacken wwoods: oh, interesting. 15:25
wwoods and then soon we'll actually wire it up 15:25
lmacken sounds good 15:25
jlaska #info lmacken noted that bodhi should start utilizing new 'pending' tags today 15:26
jlaska wwoods: anything other updates? 15:28
wwoods oh - I updated the Updates Lessons page 15:28
wwoods with information about the nss-softokn problem 15:28
wwoods 15:28
jlaska wwoods: oh right, thank you ... that one was a bit complex 15:28
jlaska wwoods: what's the next milestone for the depcheck test? 15:29
jlaska I saw a ticket update from jskladan last week that he got something working with mash 15:29
jlaska kparal: anything we need to get on the radar based on the feedback from your talk? 15:30
wwoods jlaska: right - next milestones are getting depcheck using mash - to make sure its input matches what bodhi would push 15:31
wwoods and making depcheck do an RPM test transaction - like yum does - to make sure its test matches what yum would do on people's systems 15:31
jlaska this is for capturing file conflicts? 15:31
kparal jlaska: I received comments mainly on whitelisting rpmlint output and using beaker. the first thing is being solved on our ML, but I had still no time to read through it. the second thing can be discussed later, I think it's still not fully opensource yet 15:32
hircus jlaska: one suggestion I recall from the talk is having Koji integration for AutoQA 15:32
jlaska hircus: "integration"? 15:32
wwoods jlaska: yes 15:33
kparal I think hircus means what I had in my slides. showing autoqa results right next to the newly built packages in Koji page 15:33
wwoods ah, integration in the web frontend. yes, that would be cool 15:33
kparal hircus: yes, we have it in our plans :) 15:33
jlaska which we are hand-waving and referring to as "resultsdb" for now 15:33
hircus another aspect that some people were asking is to do the local builds inside mock / koji 15:34
jlaska resultsdb - the magic test results web service 15:34
kparal ah, yes. I wasn't able to answer those mock questions 15:34
wwoods that's... not really a QA problem 15:34
jlaska #info wwoods and jskladan continue to work on depcheck and integration with mash 15:34
jlaska hircus: yeah, what wwoods said. Was this specific to something about QA, or just general mock/koji? 15:35
jlaska alright ... anything else on the autoqa front? 15:36
jlaska if not ... we'll dive into F-14-Beta 15:36
jlaska (head first) 15:36
hircus it's QA related, in a way -- I could imagine autoqa tests would be more reproducible if you can control the local environment 15:36
jlaska hircus: autoqa tests are designed to be easy to run and not require a lot of setup/prep 15:37
hircus fair enough 15:37
jlaska if there are some specifics that are painful to work with ... do speak up though 15:38
jlaska but for now, let's take that to autoqa-devel@ for further discussion 15:38
jlaska #topic F-14 Beta Testing 15:38
jlaska adamw isn't around, so I'll go off of current status based on F14Beta and several email threads 15:38
jlaska RC#2 contains the following open F14Beta blocker bugs .. 15:39
jlaska 635396 - ConsoleKit session not properly opened (xfce) 15:39
jlaska 635395 - ConsoleKit session not properly opened (lxde) 15:39
jlaska 635332 - FC14 Beta RC2 i386 netinstall fails to boot 15:39
jlaska 635330 - Boot menu is missing in F14 Beta RC2 install discs 15:39
jlaska the last is clearly a blocker, given the recently added criteria around artwork 15:39
jlaska I'm still trying to gather more information around the RC2 netinstall failure, I've not had any problems with netinstalls so far 15:40
Oxf13 I'm really interested in a retrospective as to why 396 and 395 were found so late 15:40
jlaska And the first 2 issues (ConsoleKit) are fairly major for both spins 15:40
saccia jlaska: I experience this with more than netinstall.... I've updated the bug with what happened 15:40
jlaska Oxf13: likewise, /me adds 15:40
saccia the "Where to install bootloader" screen doesn't appear even though I have two drives 15:41
* nirik is having trouble duplicating 635396 15:41
saccia I also might consider adding as a beta blocker too if it seems fair 15:41
jlaska saccia: do you get the screen where you get to pick the 2 drives 15:42
jlaska for install/boot devices? 15:42
jlaska and it has the radio button to choose which drive to install the bootloader 15:42
saccia jlaska: no... I took "screen shots" that show it appears in alpha but not in RC1/RC2 15:42
jlaska saccia: I believe that screen depends on your drive and partition selections, but let's continue to diagnose that after the meeting in #fedora-qa 15:43
jlaska with regards to the mouse click, I'm still not able to reproduce 15:44
jlaska but it seems that two of you are seeing this problem on test@ 15:44
dgilmore jlaska: do we have all the info on the setups? video cards, type of mouse and how its connected? 15:44
jlaska dgilmore: not in the bug mentioned above 15:45
dgilmore jlaska: seems like we need to know more about the hardware people are having issues on 15:45
jlaska the bug mentions another issue, 632431, which I'd consider a feature request 15:45
jlaska dgilmore: of course, agreed 15:45
jlaska so, summary ... F14Beta is accurate for what we know right now 15:46
jlaska and there are 2 issues under discussion (those noted by saccia) to determine their impact to users 15:46
saccia dgilmore: if you can add something in the bug detailing how to get whatever logs/info you need I'll be happy to get that info 15:46
dgilmore jlaska: at the leastw e are going to need anaconda and likely a ConsoleKit update 15:46
jlaska dgilmore: yeah 15:46
jlaska on top of this ... we need to complete the planned testing 15:46
jlaska #link 15:46
jlaska #link 15:47
jlaska with the late start and respins ... we're obviously short on test time 15:47
dgilmore jlaska: go/nogo is wednesday? 15:48
jlaska I think sticking with the phrase 'at risk' also accurately describes QA testing for F-14-Beta 15:48
jlaska dgilmore: you got it ... Wed 2010-09-22 15:48
jlaska #info 2010-09-22 - Fedora 14 Beta Go/No-Go Meeting (17:00 EST) 15:48
dgilmore jlaska: ok so we really need to get rc3 done today 15:48
Oxf13 time == crunch 15:48
jlaska dgilmore: yeah, by end of day today at least 15:49
dgilmore jlaska: do you feell that testing rc2 livecds for desktop is ok? 15:49
jlaska dgilmore: sorry, can you rephrase? 15:49
dgilmore jlaska: should i try do some testing with the livecds today while waiting for fixes? or best to wait for rc3 15:50
jlaska dgilmore: oh I see ... I'd go ahead and test anyway 15:50
jlaska I'm doing my best to fill out results in the install matrix using RC2 15:50
jlaska any other questions/concerns around F-14-Beta? 15:51
robatino some tests can be marked as fail just because of the missing boot menu 15:51
robatino memtest for example 15:51
jlaska robatino: good point, I haven't marked those as fail yet 15:51
Oxf13 I wonder if we need a new indicator 15:51
* jlaska trying to knock out the hardware, partitioning, updates and traceback cases 15:51
Oxf13 blocked vs pass/fail 15:51
jlaska Oxf13: meh ... no real opinion there ... I'm happy to update if there is overwhelming desire for blocked 15:52
Oxf13 not sure if it's overwhelming, just wondering if a blocked test means anything different to us than a failed test 15:53
jlaska right now, I haven't found a big need to distinguish between the two 15:53
Oxf13 some sort of relational test matrix would help 15:53
jlaska you're right, it certainly has different meaning 15:53
jlaska The <ref name="..."> has helped for re-using existing bugs/failures for test results 15:54
jlaska so at least we have a mostly unique list of bugs in the References section 15:54
jlaska alright ... any other F-14-Beta thoughts? 15:54
Oxf13 k 15:55
jlaska if not ... 15:55
jlaska #topic Open Discussion - <your topic here> 15:55
jlaska thoughts/comments/concerns/hicu 15:55
jlaska if not ... let's close this out in 2 minutes and get back to F-14-Beta 15:56
Oxf13 haikus are easy; But sometimes they don't make sense; Refrigerator 15:56
bcl bz#627789 15:56
jlaska Oxf13: thank you for proper spelling! :) 15:57
Oxf13 Southern_Gentlem: care to join #fedora-devel and talk about your respin issue? 15:57
bcl It didn't make it into f14-beta-branch, and I'm hitting it when I use livecd tools to make a usb stick with the DVD iso. 15:57
bcl I probably shouldn't have closed it as fixed in rawhide. But I also don't see a large number of other reports on it. 15:58
jlaska bcl: only 1 dup so far 15:58
jlaska " 15:58
jlaska "Problem was a race between unmounting the iso and deactivating the loopback. 15:58
jlaska mount can now handle mounting iso's with loop without needing losetup." 15:58
jlaska bcl: is this a fix we need to consider for F14Beta? 15:59
bcl I think so, but that's because I keep hitting it with my usage :) 15:59
saccia haiku Fedora 14 / Is still very green and new / More tests must we do 15:59
jlaska #info 627789 - Error setting up repository - 16, Device busy 15:59
jlaska saccia: kudos :) 16:00
jlaska bcl: I'll ping you in #anaconda afterwards to understand more about this 16:00
bcl ok 16:00
jlaska alright gang ... thanks for your time. I'm calling end of meeting 16:01
jlaska happy testing :) 16:01
wwoods thanks jlaska! 16:01
jlaska #endmeeting 16:01
