       *Summary of the meeting

  1.

     Ronny Aasen Volentered as summary writer.

  2.

     There are very few users of ppc in debian, if there are users that
     would like to run debian-edu they should make their presence know.
     The conclusion is that ppc and amd64 needs more testing to
     determine if it can be released or not. And that the presense of
     such machines at the gathering in trondheim might help on that
     decition making. Hopefully akai (hint) Might be ablet to fix
     something ?

  3.

     The dvd is getting better each day. Holgers work on the bugzilla
     have also helps making it more obvious where the problems are. If
     you want a package included on the DVD, or you want some bug
     fixed, you only have few days to get it included or to rally
     support for your issues. It's also important that you test the
     installations and give reports on bugzilla or on the mailinglist.
     successfull tests are also wanted.

        1.

           lwat will be the default installed user admin tool in terra.
           It's there, it's working. Cipux may be on the cd if the
           packags are ready for the release date.

  4.

     i386 is different from the other cd's becouse Ronny is trying to
     make a netinstall out of it. It was decided to enable network for
     all images, but hide it on the DVD. And revert the i386 to have
     identical images to work on. Work will continue on netinstallation.

  5.

     holder have updated svn/src/debian-edu-doc/todo with notes about
     whats needed to make the doc package. He states that the main
     problem/issue, is that most of the docs is in a different svn repo
     that the package. This can be solved in several ways. There was
     also discussion about the difficulty to keep wikipages in sync
     regarding translations. But those working on the web should be
     part of the decition process. So a call to all documentation
     writers and web mechanics to join the meetings.

  6.

     The technical requirements for release is at the very minimum is,
     no P1 or P2 bugs. There are also administrative issues like the
     need to prepare the release, have press releases ready, warn the
     person behind [MAILTO] cd@skolelinux.org
     <mailto:cd@skolelinux.org> and in general get everyone to agree
     that now is the time to release. The goal is "We plan to release
     RC1 on May 19th, RC2 on May 26th, RC3 on June 2nd and Debian-Edu
     etch on June 9th." Ronny voiced concerns about lack of testing.
     Especialy the services interaction.

  7.

      From [WWW]
     http://www.friprogramvareiskolen.no/Gathering/2007-06-Trondheim it
     seams only Ronny and Holger will attend the Gathering in
     Trondheim. We hope this is wrong, and that people are just slow to
     edit the wiki. If you dont have rights to the wiki, shout on irc
     or ask on the list.
