conference kit

Hello,

one of the projects that's been around for a while is the production of 
a marketing/conference kit.

For the US, Robinson has collected that (thanks so much for that!), see 
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Marketing/US/Box

For Europe, Sophie is looking into getting such a box produced. However, 
the feedback so far is that there is no real need for a box to ship 
around. Rather, people have their hardware locally and we can produce 
swag/collaterals when required, which is considered easier than sending 
around a box in Europe.

I understand that, as I also have a box from the German community here, 
and shipping around never worked out so well for me either. :-)

Before we close this ticket, I wanted to reach out to the community 
again to hear if there is any need and what your thoughts are. The basic 
idea behind this budget item is to make organization of local events 
easier, but I appreciate the shipping and transportation problem.

Let me know what you think - thanks!

Florian

German community meeting in Essen

Hello,

I'd like to inform you that the German community has planned their 
annual meeting at Linuxhotel in Essen, from

	Friday, June 19 to Sunday, June 21

As the last years, we will meet and gather with the community, discuss 
about projects carried out in the past, and plan for the future. An 
agenda is yet to be written.

Everyone is invited to join, of course, to get in touch with community 
members, and contribute to the success of LibreOffice. ;-)

There's also a limited number of rooms available, but we have to book 
right now. So if you're sure you want to join already now, please let us 
know in time. Otherwise, there's a couple of other hotels available in 
Essen, and you can still join during the day.

Note that most of the slots will be in German language, but of course 
English speakers are welcome as well - exchanging thoughts and ideas 
across countries is usually quite constructive!

Looking forward to meeting you!
Florian

infra analysis and status quo

Hello,

the infra team has met to review the past issues, and would like to make 
its analysis public to the community:

I. introduction

We have three big servers running, called dauntless, excelsior and 
falco. The first two were put online in October, the last one in 
December. The planned platform was oVirt with Gluster, with CentOS as 
the base system. All servers are comparable in their hardware setup, 
with 256 GB of RAM, one internal and one external Gbit networking card, 
server-grade mainboard with IPMI, several HDDs, and 64 core CPU. All 
three hosts were connected internally via a Gbit link, with oVirt 
managing all of them, and Gluster being the underlying network file system.

II. before going productive

Extensive tests were carried out before going live with the platform. 
The concrete CentOS, oVirt and Gluster version used for production was 
tested twice, on separate and on the actual hardware, with the IPMI and 
BIOS versions used later; that included two desaster simulations, where 
one host was disconnected unannounced and oVirt behaved exactly as 
expected - running the VMs on the other host without interruption.

When the platform was ready, to not endanger anything, first all 
non-critical VMs were migrated, i.e. mainly testing VMs where a downtime 
is not critical, but that still produce quite some load. Working 
exclusively with these was done over several weeks, with no problems 
detected.
