Open Issues from last meetings

OS updates

  • [INFO] Steffen mentions that he installed OS updates on all servers. It seems this wasn't done for a while.
  • [INFO] Steffen reports that fixing the Zabbix warning for Debian 8 would be nice
  • [TODO] Fix Zabbix notification for pending OS updates for Debian 8:
  • [TODO] We need to define responsibility for doing OS updates:

Piwik outage

  • [INFO] The Piwik server had an outage which was caused by OOM.
  • [INFO] Steffen investigated, but couldn't fix anything due to insufficient memory on the host.
  • [TODO] Ask Thomas Janke to see if there's anything to improve in the configuration:

Discourse proposal

Next sprint

  • [INFO] We didn't find a date for a next sprint where more than 2 people could attend.
  • [INFO] Therefore, we decided to join the upcoming team sprint which is taking place on June 8-10 at in Karlsruhe.
  • [TODO] Provide more infos (Michael)

Next steps

  • Steffen
    • (Document upgrade of chef-client)
    • migration of the voting site and get.t3o (Steffen needs to trigger Thomas / Xavier to do that...)
    • Create a decisions proposal for (I'm 50:50 on that). Actually, I'd like to make statistics of a few more sites public so that others can compare (and well, we're an open source community, so no secrets..).
  • Michael
    • Finish open issues regarding server hosting offer
    • Buy a new server (we can't wait for the above offer to proceed here)
    • Prepare next sprint


  • Steffen asks if it's ok to publish statistics for docs, wiki, forge, forum, gerrit (or a subset of those)? We think that's ok.
  • Forger: It's time to clean up the board, i.e., remove all assigned persons, move things into the right state, e.g. everything(?) out of review and Accepted, then select the next important tasks for the accepted column. Who likes to help here?
  • Redmine plugin has still two open PRs: Should I create a forge ticket for that? (answer Michael: no thanks, have an open tab for it ;-))
  • We should definitely get a new server. ms08 is damn slow and RAM is occupied.
  • Developer days: Andri will be there - who else is going? Michael is still undecided...

Next meeting

  • The next meeting will take place on Thursday, June 8, 2017 07:00 CEST

End of the meeting: 08:00 CEST.
