#1 Who can write the summary?

h01ger will, but we should invistigate to get rid of the time waste to find a summary writer and save the writer a lot of time and dull work

=== #2.1 Status of the release: remaining p1+p2 bugs

only one p2 bug left, and its believed to be fixed (#1223)

klausade just filed #1229 but pere believes this was due to broken builds during the day. we'll need to investigate this..

someone should go through all the p3 bugs and see if there is any bug which should be p2

=== #2.2 Status of the release: RC5?

we plan to release rc5 tomorrow

h01ger will push "everything" (except gnash+multiseat) from etch-test to etch after the meeting except d-e-c and d-e-i - ping h01ger if you successfully installed from etch-test, then he will move that too

=== #2.3 Status of the release: release notes and press release still has some fixmes and is still empty (and has too much information...)

=== #2.4 Status of the release: final testing

please use/read and update when doing test installs now

=== #2.5 Status of the release: upgrade from sarge testing

upgrade issues/paths should be documented in - currently there is nothing documented, but we dont believe this is right

winnie will try to test the upgrade path - more testers welcome :)

=== #2.6 Status of the release: announcing

akai is working on announcing the release, see

=== #2.7 Status of the release: anything else?

h01ger will replace the debian-edu version number from 3.0 to 4.0

#3 release documentation

the documentation for the etch based release is available at

we will release with FIXMEs in the documentation we will mention this in the release notes, though..

remove kursdok and driftbook from debian-edu-doc and give links/information about those old documents in README.debian and in the localized dirs

Currently we only have (incomplete) spanish and norwegian bokmal translations.

#4 Next meeting
