25 Minute Talk Ubuntu Desktop


Sébastien Bacher


We have a collection of tools and reports we are using to help us with our desktop packaging.

The purpose to of the talk is to present some of our existing reports and automations

  • report of the deb packages in the desktop set and their status (current versions, proposed migrations status, sponsoring requests, SRU needing verification, daily ISO status, ...)

  • a similar report for our snaps, including rebuilds needed for CVE in staged packages

  • ubuntu metrics

and also to discuss some prototypes and ideas like tracking candidate snaps validation through automated github reports

Session author bios

I've been working on Ubuntu Desktop since the start of the project. While my focus has been on GNOME I'm also trying to help where it is needed. I'm also part of the Ubuntu Archive team and recent DMB member.
