Past Meetings

  • Tuesday 19th March 2013
    • Progress building XAPI:
      • permissions issues solved: issue with libvhd linking
      • xenstore issues hit with latest ocaml bindings to xenstore
      • possibly issues with VIF plug scripts
      • johnthetubaguy: to email list about move to ocamlxenstore
    • Packaging
      • no progress on libvirt
      • OCAML current 3.12.1 rpm is missing deps to build OPAM (compiler-libs)
      • z00dax trying fedora-19 OCAML build
      • will need to update other ocaml-* packages too
    • Informal meet up in Cambridge, Friday 22nd, contact mcclurmc for details
  • Tuesday 12th March 2013
    • Progress:
      • permissions issues, possible fix, storage not quite working, OVS not quite working, VM not quite starting
      • agreed success criteria: VM working, with OVS vif, VHD disk (+ maybe raw iSCSI disk)
    • Packaging:
      • work on OCAML 4.00.1 (or 3.12.1)
      • OPAM is probably not needed for the rpm packaging, but may need omake, ocamlfind and others
      • try to avoid automake etc. upgrade, only needed for OPAM
      • Others: wait till we have a working prototype
    • Next meeting:
