Must haves for 18.10 release
Open, Unbreak Now!Public

Description

I'm setting up a one-stop shopping place for those things we have to fix for 18.10. Even if we're too lazy/busy to file bugs, we can put something here. Feel free to put up whatever, brainstorm style, and we can kill it if we determine it isn't so urgent after all.

Beta must-haves (DO THESE FIRST):

Release must-haves:

  • Click to Install Lubuntu (no extra dialog)
    • Nasty cludge is setting QuickExec in pcmanfm-qt and then turning it off after installation. Supposedly upstream is working on metadata that would allow more granular settings, but I'm not sure this will come in time, so if we must, nasty cludge it is.
  • T59: Investigate Bluetooth Fun
  • Redo the slideshow

I created a wiki page we can move things to in order to punt them.

@agaida says that sddm-config-editor is unlikely. I'll punt it if we don't get a response from the maintainer within a week or two.

Removing "GRUB menu option on ISO to 'Boot to first disk fails because it includes no directives." A chat on #ubuntu-release reveals that this is actually not a GRUB menu but an ISOLINUX menu and also that this has been a failure since at least Xenial on all flavors. cyphermox will work on trying to figure it out, but probably not until after release.

Removed password requirements. Going to get rid of those as the community was overwhelmingly against it.

This list is getting a bit long and the Beta date is getting much too close for comfort.

@wxl we really need to focus on knocking out the rest of this list. I'm going to go through right now and move things off to next cycle that I'd argue aren't "must have" for a non-LTS but really need to be solved for next cycle.

So, that part is done. Now, I'm updating the list for "beta must-haves" and "release must-haves."

Beta must-haves MUST be done in the next seven days, or things are going to get really hard for us, adding about three levels of bureaucracy. The other stuff we can manage to get done.

High gear, folks!

There, I also removed the items we've crossed off for cleanliness.

Please note that prototypes are all we need done for the Beta must-haves. We can bugfix and polish before the release if needed (but ideally revision one should be pristine).
