# Devuan meet 2021-08-05 @20:30 UTC

Present: golinux, Xenguy, plasma41, rrq, Hendrik, LeePen, mason,

## Old Business

## Old Actions

## New Business

### LeePen
* Installed ntpd on jenkins native arm64 builder. Fixes a recent build
* Updated packages in ceres/chimaera:
* debian-installer (mini.iso)
* NMU 389-ds-base (remove cockpit-389-ds)
* util-linux (fix CVE-2021-37600)
* distro-info-data
* debian-config-override (fix [#597](https://bugs.devuan.org/597))
* Greg Nowak confirmed fix for [#496](https://bugs.devuan.org/496) works
well: > I just finished testing multiple desktop installs with the
netinst iso from 20210726. As far as I can tell, the installer works
as expected in every case I tried, and the installed system is as it
should be. Things work so well in fact that even inaccessible desktops
have accessible logins because of lightdm and orca being installed! He
will also contribute some comments on accessibility for inclusion in
the Release Notes.

### Xenguy
* More active at [chess](https://lichess.org/) than Devuan this week.
* Will finish QA'ing files recently added to the `installer-iso
wip/docs` branch, in the coming week.
* I assume that there is nothing Devuan can do about this oft mentioned
issue, since it is a Debian bug IIUC: [\[DNG\] grub-efi-amd64-signed
bug: hardcoded link -> unbootable
* I noted that Hendrik was wondering about [\[DNG\] chimaera draft
* **Question:** Did Hendrik receive any response about this yet?

### Hendrik
* No, I have received no responses about this. I'm looking for draft
instructions for upgrading beowulf to chimaera and a draft of the
release notes for chimaera, in whatever state of incompleteness they
are now. I'd like to proofread, critique, and debug them.

### plasma41
* Writing a bug report for eudev. (After the meeting: Finished it

### mason
* Q: SQLite came up in IRC. Would we prefer that for a tentative
MediaWiki install? I'm fine with PostgreSQL but I'd be fine either

## New Actions

### Xenguy
* Locate/create the new subdirectory parallel to dev1fanboy's
documentation subdirectory in the `www` repo.
* Email Hendrik to clarify collaboration on Chimaera documentation.
* 'Upgrading to Chimaera' instructions are needed.
