Mar 04 19:07:54 <Ackdar> ok then
Mar 04 19:08:27 <daMaestro> It would be good if the testing code gave me a python API that I could do a simple test against, such as have it return True or False after testing. EOF

Mar 04 19:20:52 <Corwyn> Notice from the Chair:
Mar 04 19:21:19 <Corwyn> I've moved the Document server configs to Pri 2, but we still need to get that done at some point
Mar 04 19:21:28 * Corwyn opens the floor to open discussion
Mar 04 19:22:34 <daMaestro> Well.. i think something we should look at doing rather then taring up the vmware drive:
Mar 04 19:22:34 <Bob-Laptop> Sorry little guy put his teeth through his lip
Mar 04 19:22:49 <Corwyn> we were wondering
Mar 04 19:22:53 <daMaestro> Do LVM snapshots.
Mar 04 19:23:19 <daMaestro> I'm not sure what bob has at this time (per LVM configuration,) but we can do online LVM snapshots
Mar 04 19:23:34 <daMaestro> this might be better then taking the VM down and doing a tar.
Mar 04 19:23:56 <Bob-Laptop> daMaestro: either way I think I need to rebuild server3
Mar 04 19:24:18 <Corwyn> if it's something that will do the job, I don't see why we can't, do we have the ability to do it?
Mar 04 19:24:31 <daMaestro> Yes, we can do LVM snapshotting
Mar 04 19:24:40 <Corwyn> how long does it take?
Mar 04 19:25:00 <daMaestro> Not sure, but we can do it online.
Mar 04 19:25:10 <Corwyn> +1
Mar 04 19:25:50 <daMaestro> Also, my recent pungi builds have been failing.
Mar 04 19:26:09 <daMaestro> Jesse has said it might be the kernel has gone too far for the stock anaconda.
Mar 04 19:26:32 <Corwyn> is he looking into it?
Mar 04 19:26:47 <daMaestro> No, FC6 pungi does not get updates.
Mar 04 19:27:03 <Corwyn> any options?
Mar 04 19:27:09 <daMaestro> This would also be an issue with anaconda, assuming this is really the issue.
Mar 04 19:27:34 <daMaestro> Well, find out if this is the issue (too new of a kernel) and do a Spin of the latest kernel that will work.
Mar 04 19:28:06 <Corwyn> Is there any further business tonight?
Mar 04 19:28:14 <daMaestro> Blogs.
Mar 04 19:28:25 <Corwyn> go on
Mar 04 19:28:34 <daMaestro> We have blogging setup. It is syndicated to http://planet.fedoraproject.org/
Mar 04 19:29:04 <daMaestro> You need special access to be able to publish blogs. So, either ask for a blog to be published, or ask for "Blogger" access.
Mar 04 19:29:10 <daMaestro> http://fedoraunity.org/blogs
Mar 04 19:29:26 <Corwyn> Are we going to make this public?
Mar 04 19:29:36 <daMaestro> Even 'Managers' need 'Blogger' access.
Mar 04 19:29:47 <daMaestro> Well.. public as in if you have an account you can write a blog.
Mar 04 19:29:58 <daMaestro> But it would need to be published before it is "Public"
Mar 04 19:30:03 <VileGent> so how do get blogger access
Mar 04 19:30:09 * fedorared (n=john@fedora/fedorared) has joined #fedora-unity

Mar 04 19:30:11 <daMaestro> which requires 'Blogger' access.
