Infra call agenda in Etherpad

Hello,

based on what we have in the Redmine ticket, I quickly hacked together 
an infra call agenda in Etherpad. Everyone joining the call is invited 
to in parallel open

in their browsers. :-)

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.

infra status update

Hello,

I'd like to send a brief infra status update.

The good news is, all productive VMs are back to normal

We have moved, at least for the moment, to a stock Linux system with 
plain KVM virtualization, without any network file system or complex 
layer in between.

Non-production and test-VMs will be migrated over the next days, some of 
them are already online again. The crashtest machine will be back in 
service soon as well, getting a dedicated machine.

We will have two meetings with the infra team tomorrow and on Monday to 
further analyze the situation.

Shortly after that, we will host an infra call, where everyone is 
invited, to recap the situation and talk about the further plans.

Thanks a lot,
Florian

NLPs/ L10n meeting during LibOCon

Hi all,

You know that the next LibreOffice conference will be in Aarhus in
Denmark from 23rd to 25th September. For first information see here
http://conference.libreoffice.org/

There is also what we call an 'internal day' on the 22nd dedicated to
team meetings.
I would very much like that we have a meeting between NLP teams this
year. I already sent this call to the l10n teams too. There is no better
way to solve and push things than gathering together. So please book the
date in your agenda!
TDF can help your for travel/accommodation refunds.

What I'm thinking about is:
- various l10n topics like the new Pootle version, KeyID installation,
strings search, help files,etc.
- guide translation via OmegaT/GitHub
- QA with MozTrap (hopefully localized)
- Handling PR translation together with Italo,
- Conference cases
- Marketing and conferences around the world
- your topic :)

Let me know if you are willing to come at the conference, then we will
be able to organize our time together at best.
Cheers
Sophie
