Virtual Ubuntu Developer Summit 13.05

6 May 2013 608 views One Comment

Next Tuesday, May 14 starts the second Virtual Ubuntu Developer Summit. Based on feedback, this vUDS will be three days long. Don’t forget to register for the event. A list of currently approved blueprints is available on Launchpad. If you find that one is missing, you can create your own. Keep an eye out this week for scheduling to start.


  • App Development: Alan Pope, David Planella & Michael Hall
  • Community: Daniel Holbach, Nick Skaggs & Jono Bacon
  • Client: Jason Warner & Sebastien Bacher
  • Server & Cloud: Dave Walker & Antonio Rosales
  • Foundations: Steve Langasek


One of the bugs that has long effected Summit has been that a blueprint had to have a specific status. This will finally no longer effect us! If a blueprint is marked anything other than Obsolete or Superseded it will now show up on the schedule as long as it is approved by a track lead. A huge thanks to Steve Kowalik and William Grant for getting this fixed!

Another issue that seemed to confuse people is having to register attendance in Launchpad in order to be able to use the features of Summit. This is no longer the case! You are now able to register as attending in Summit without any need to visit Launchpad (a Launchpad account is still required).

If you find that you have any issues with Summit or vUDS you can contact the track leads or you can contact me. If you find any bugs in Summit, please tell us about it!

See you next week!

    Basically I’d like to suggest that nouveau/kernel/X11, especially when used with Intel Ivy Bridge, needs some improvement with regards to Ubuntu. I hope this developer summit will also be about such stuff and not only the tracks that were mentioned within this article.

    Further I realized that Lauchpad has approx. 100.000 open bugs associated with Ubuntu for a longer period of time (years). Honestly that worries me quite a bit. I wonder how much of these are outdated, wontfix or simply things that could be fixed easily.

    Please, please, please someone address this since nice and shiny things can always wait. Thank you!
