Czech Packagers Team meeting minutes

Present: anicka, mseben, mvyskocil, sbrabec
Absent: jmatejek
Vacation: pgajdos

Minutes: mvyskocil

(1) Different default MIME type association for every DE
sbrabec works on Default MIME type association (bnc#456026) - he proposed to
have a different set of default mime type handlers on every desktop. For
instance application/zip -> Ark in KDE, FileRoller in GNOME.

(2) Gdb's issue with gtk apps
sbrabec pointed us to problem with debugging of non-threading Gtk apps using
gdb. Due indirect pthread dependency from gtk-canberra plugin and ELF
interposting used by glibc the resolved glibc symbols are non-thread, even if
they'd be thread-safe. So gdb fails in this case.

A workaround for running processes is deattach and reattach gdb. The one for
core files is currently not known.

(3) High number of bugs
Some team members has a big number of opened bugs. So other team members will
take a care about some of those to decrease a number of unresolved bugs.

(4) Internal scripts
Every team member use the own set of homebrewed scripts to increase his
productivity. We discussed about possible merging and we started to collect a
list of them.
