• Alastair
    • systemd project
      • Consider how components will work with systemd
      • Continue work on documentation - guidance for other COs on how to use
      • Look at getting Stop method to rebuild /etc/systemd regardless of whether there have been resource changes (remember Stop doesn't call Configure)
      • convert to module
    • EL7 project
      • what sort of level of space is required by systemd journald logging (for desktop /var sizing)
        • (By default journald logs to /run/log. Have to mkdir /var/log/journal to keep data). Have enabled on one machine
        • identify default retention policyDefault retention is to use up to 10% of partition. Can use either space or time as a constraint on space. Logs are per user + system, so users can read their own data. Each log file starts at 8MB, so a popular machine will have lots of log data.
        • Blog about journald retention policy - and document how to set...
        • Blog about decision to keep journald and /var/lcfg/log/syslog duplication - and resulting configuration change.
      • check installroot stuff same version across SL6 and EL7
        • and pull out old SL5 stuff
      • Look at whether we need anything better than existing network component for desktops
      • Look at lightdm issues
        • locking (dm-lock doesn't actually lock, just respawns greeter on different VT - can still switch back to original VT
        • power management
      • Blog about dconf and lightdm components
      • Look at LCFG bug #799 (systemd buffered output)
      • convert lcfg-dconf and lcfg-lightdm to module
      • Fix systemd, dconf, and lightdm components so appropriate default values are in the defaults file, not just in the schema file
      • Check dconf and lightdm schemas at LCFG level - should be same as live/defaults.h. Check dconf in LCFG default desktop
      • Take to CEG - DICE EL7 by 1st Feb, COs desktops in February, guinea pigs by 1st March.
    • RT 65774 - try two identical monitors on my machine
    • Need to remove default bridge from kvmtool create
    • Think about disk partition policy
    • Review last reviewed date for documentation
    • Consider more cores as default for KVM guests
    • Is there a way of disabling debugging information being displayed by drupal when there are problems?Can't see how to do safely (needs disable backtrace in /etc/php.ini?)- Ask David Marsh in Physics?
    • Read LISA notes
    • Look at KVM server loading
    • At some point - look at installroot kdcregister solution
    • Look at lcfg-lvm component BUG #807)
    • Look at jubilee lvm config Design flaw in lvm component - requires scsi /dev names to be static, which on a SAN attached machine isn't the case. Surprised haven't tripped up already on this
    • RT 65774

  • Chris
    • EL7
      • continue with Sleep component
      • investigate Gnome power-management and document
    • url shortener (once gdm solved)
    • Create Project entries - for KVM refinement project
    • Experiment rename br0 as br33 on metropolitan
    • Think about disk partition policy
    • Review last reviewed date for documentation
    • Commission jubilee's extra disks as an extra pool
    • Identify VMs to move to waterloo and move to balance load
    • Quick look at rootmail
    • RT 69276, 61762

  • Stephen
    • LCFG client refactor stage 1
      • schedule debrief meeting
    • EL7
      • Continue thinking about boot.run functionality
      • Complete porting MPU managed resources to the DICE level
        • Coordinate a meeting of COs - for first week of January
      • Finish working towards a stable EL7 release
    • Think about PD - Interested in ZeroMQ
    • Deploy northern as staff.nx (first open up holes and test from home) - awaiting disks
    • Think about disk partition policy
    • Review last reviewed date for documentation
    • Add extra memory to waterloo (and if those work, order up more memory for hammersmith)
    • Incorporate comments into pandemic security doc
    • Blog/announce cronie patch to users
    • RT 68529, 68269
