I’m home from the Ubuntu Developer Summit (Boston 2007) and wanted to get a few of my thoughts out on virtual paper while they are still fresh. We have gone over so much information this week that I feel a bit of information overload, but it has been well worth it and a *lot* has been done. Just a few of the things that I’ve been able to accomplish while I’ve been here:
- the ‘ping’ tool will be added to the base alternate installer busybox shell (bug #159376).
- the ubuntu-hardened list, launchpad page and IRC channel have been resurrected.
- keybinding bugs have been fixed in Kubuntu for the macbook (brightness and eject) – Thanks Riddell
- improved bug working guidelines for the community (to be blogged about)
- improved working relationships with the motu and wiki teams (to be blogged about)
- submitted a sprint for improved automated installation tools and documentation
- discussed default ubuntu firewall options and tools
- discussed SELinux implementation options for pro-active security
- creation of the ubuntu community enterprise spec on launchpad for improved enterprise support
I’m really glad I was able to make the Summit this year and I only hope that I got enough work done that I can be considered for a Summit again in the future. I do have the groundwork of plans for an education-for-implementation schedule within US Teams, but I’ll blog about that later.. Great work everyone. It was great to meet all of you there and I hope to see you again next time!
