Recap and full IRC transcript found here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ReleaseEngineering/Meetings/2007-may-14

Please make corrections and clarifications to the wiki page.

== Rawhide ==
* Notting put a lot of work into getting rawhide to build again--see IRC log for how it works
* Discussion of mash and future rawhide building plans

== Current Issues and Freeze Status ==
* we agreed last week to revisit this week.
* are we ready to freeze on Thursday?
* discussion of packages causing problems
  1. beagle
    * re-evaluate beagle and tracker for F8
    * bug #217031
    * maintainer made changes to comps
    * DECISION (UNANIMOUS): Accept maintainer's comps change, making beagle optional.  Include it in manifest so that it is on media for upgrades.
  1. wireless-tools
    * newest wireless-tools has a patch that's supposed to fix 64-bit that actually breaks all wireless scanning on 64-bit systems.
    * https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-extras-commits/2007-May/msg02800.html
    * warren will drive issue to conclusion
    * we not only need x86_64 testers, but also ppc and i386 to be sure the 64bit fix didn't break 32bit.
    * DECISION (UNANIMOUS): If that -3 build turns out to be No Good then we just revert the 64-bit patches entirely and call that -3 (or -4 or whatever)
  1. hal
    * wwoods--hal-0.5.9-6.fc7 fixed the suspend/resume quirks for some stuff (T60 maybe?), but broke it for others (my pitiable t43)
    * without passing the quirks there's no way suspend to work on large classes of laptops
    * ACTION: jeremy will try to get hughsie to take a look--davidz won't be back until the 20th.
  1. mdraid
    * wwoods--the old raidautorun stuff + IDE = doooom
    * wwoods will enage Peter Jones
    * realy need IDE drives to do good testing
    * lots of bugs; BZ: 151653, 231426, 238353, 221696, 213586, 238926
    * wwoods--never tested dmraid because no hardware; f13 is going to test now
    * DECISION: None reached

* we should direct new packages to updates, not the final tree.
* f13 will announce and update the freeze/release dates
* everything must be done and ready for GA on 29-MAY-07

== Outstanding GA Blocker Bugs ==
* 81 bugs still on the fc7blocker
* http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/ReleaseCriteria provides guidance on release blockers
* DECISION (UNANIMOUS): * Blocker only fixes starting Thursday (branch CVS same day) * Broken EVR paths and broken deps (including from the Merge) in the entire distro must be fixed before GA * wwoods to add this to release criteria

== EULA ==
* EULA only available online; not in the distro
* http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Legal/Licenses/EULA
