Essential We currently test Ubuntu Server ec2 AMI's at key milestones during the current development cycle; we should expand this todo daily testing of both the current development release and existing supported releases as well to provide assurance that Ubuntu Server cloud images are validated on ec2 and OpenStack.

Low The System Security Services Daemon (SSSD) is a service which provides access to different identity and authentication providers. You can configure SSSD to use a native LDAP domain (that is, an LDAP identity provider with LDAP authentication), or an LDAP identity provider with Kerberos authentication. It provides an NSS and PAM interface to the system, and a pluggable back-end system to connect to multiple different account sources. SSSD is also extensible; you can configure it to use new identity sources and authentication mechanisms should they arise. In addition, SSSD is fully IPv6-compatible. Canonical's support services would like this package moved from Universe to Main in response to needs expressed by Ubuntu Server users.

Medium With the proliferation of new clouds vendors, there is substantial risk of inconsistent user experience on different clouds. Trusting vendors to pull images may not be a reliable assumption. For example, vendors may not see the value in publishing a new release day, refreshed cloud images, and/or a standard user experience assumes that cloud vendors will pull the images. I propose that owing and controlling the publishing of the cloud images provides substantial value to both customers and partners. Leaving vendors or the community to handle populating images on the "greater Cloud" could result in Amazon being the gold standard for the customer experience, with lesser, incomplete or missing experiences on other cloud vendors. If we choose to maintain official ownership over our images on major vendors, we either need to build a publishing systems, provide pull scripts that our partners will run, provide a public glance server or some combination. This meeting it to discuss the strategy and come up with a basic plan of action.

Medium Apache Hadoop has gained widespread adoption; the various flavours of Hadoop appear to be consolidating and Cloudera have transferred a number of their Hadoop related projects to Apache including Bigtop (the Cloudera packaging for Redhat, Debian and SuSE). Packaging Hadoop for Ubuntu would help support developing a set of rock solid Juju charms for Hadoop by providing a well integrated version of the packaging for Ubuntu. Collaboration with Apache Bigtop would also potentially help support packaging the wider family of Hadoop related projects.

Low Postfix is the standard MTA for Ubuntu. The current packaging doesn't fully support all the upstream capabilities in the current release. We should add multi-instance support and sqlite support and review recent enhancements to postfix to see if we've missed anything else.

Low From some angles it appears MySQL as a project may have fractured. From another angle, it has diversified and gotten really strong in many aspects. We want to make sure users have access to the best of breed for the LAMP stack, which is still a powerful force in the server market and the cloud world, as well as for non-web workloads that demand the speed and flexibility that MySQL and its variants provide.

Low The FreeIPA team ( has been working with the goal to get the packages included in Debian and Ubuntu. Running an instance of FreeIPA provides an easy to maintain kerberos realm for users and machines, 'AD for Linux'. This is something that has been requested by administrators for years, so it's about time to provide it in Ubuntu as well, even if just as a technology preview and not something fully supported (=in universe). an earlier report on getting the IPA client work on oneiric:

High Discuss the current HA cluster stack and its usage in OpenStack and finish with the merges of newest upstream changes. Additionally, discuss the adoption of Pacemaker Cloud [1]. "The Pacemaker Cloud project provides high levels of service availability for high scale cloud deployments. Our approach to high availability is to detect failures, isolate failures, followed by restart of the failed components. When repeated component failures occur the software escalates those failures into failures of higher level components." "" [1]:
