[17:00:10] <akseli> jaheikki3: pong
[17:00:51] <thiago> jaheikki3: pong
[17:01:37] <jaheikki3> Time to start qt release team meeting
[17:01:43] <jaheikki3> On agenda today:
[17:01:57] <jaheikki3> Qt 5.8.0 Beta status
[17:02:04] <jaheikki3> Qt 5.7.1 status
[17:02:13] <fkleint_> jaheikki3:pong
[17:02:17] <jaheikki3> Any additional item to the agenda?
[17:03:53] <jaheikki3> Lets start from Qt 5.8.0 beta status
[17:04:34] <jaheikki3> Almost full set of installers under testing, only LGLP iOS package still missing
[17:05:11] <jaheikki3> Quite few test results available so far and unfortunately couple of new blockers reported :(
[17:05:30] <jaheikki3> See all open blockers from https://bugreports.qt.io/issues/?filter=17924
[17:06:31] <jaheikki3> We need to get fixes in & new packaging and testing round done before beta release
[17:06:53] <jaheikki3> & of course more testing results from existing packages
[17:07:09] <jaheikki3> And that means no beta release during this week
[17:07:39] <jaheikki3> Let's target to get remaining blockers fixed during this week & try to get beta out during next week
[17:07:41] <fkleint_> with the slight complication that Simon is OOO for the coming weeks, and we are thus unable to fix the quick compiler...
[17:08:37] <jaheikki3> fkleint_: That's true. IU notice lars might have some idea of remaining issus and another one has a fix available
[17:09:00] <jaheikki3> So let's hope he can find a fix...
[17:09:22] <fkleint_> hopefully
[17:09:39] <jaheikki3> Any other comments/questions?
[17:10:48] <jaheikki3> Ok, then Qt 5.7.1 status:
[17:11:11] <jaheikki3> Actually the status is pretty similar than with Qt 5.8.0 :(
[17:11:22] <lars> jaheikki3: I'm waiting for comments from kiollila regarding the QNX segfault
[17:11:54] <lars> jaheikki3: regarding the quick compiler, I would suggest to test again with https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/174630/
[17:12:09] <lars> jaheikki3: it's most likely that one
[17:12:40] <jaheikki3> lars: Ok, we need to get new packages with that fix in
[17:12:40] <fkleint_> yup, hopefully it gets integrated, then we cherry-pick to 5.7.1 and merge to 5.8...
[17:12:53] <fkleint_> once COIN is back up..
[17:12:55] <jaheikki3> yeah
[17:13:37] <lars> jaheikki3: yes, but until then this can be verified locally I would guess
[17:14:01] <jaheikki3> lars: That's true
[17:14:54] <jaheikki3> back to 5.7.1 status :)
[17:15:14] <jaheikki3> Testing ongoing. Some reports already got, more needed
[17:15:51] <jaheikki3> Unfortunately some new blockers reported, full blocker list here: https://bugreports.qt.io/issues/?filter=17833
[17:16:15] <thiago> same compiler issues?
[17:16:28] <jaheikki3> thiago: Yes
[17:16:47] <fkleint_> we are not really sure whether WInRT/Crash are the same issue,. Oli was not quite sure
[17:16:55] <thiago> oh, right, the "affects" says so
[17:16:56] <fkleint_> was not quite deterministic
[17:18:23] <jaheikki3> yeah, let's see. Hoping https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/174630/ fixes both
[17:18:37] <lars> well, the change that causes the qqcompiler crashes went into 5.6, so it should affect all branches until the fix is merged
[17:18:41] <thiago> which one are we planning to release first, 5.7.1 or 5.8.0 beta?
[17:18:52] <lars> jaheikki3: 99% certain it will
[17:18:55] <jaheikki3> But there is other blockers in 5.7.1 as wekk
[17:19:00] <jaheikki3> well
[17:19:32] <jaheikki3> thiago: 5.8.0 beta is more important but let's see which one is ready first
[17:19:53] <thiago> ok
[17:20:40] <jaheikki3> Any other comments / questions ?
[17:21:32] <jaheikki3> Ahh, almost forgot those 5.7.1 change files: Initial drafts are in gerrit. All maintainers: Please take those over and finalize those as soon as possible
[17:21:47] <jaheikki3> thiago: could you take a look qtbase one?
[17:22:21] <thiago> I might have some time this week
[17:22:25] <thiago> ok
[17:22:52] <jaheikki3> Thanks
[17:23:11] <jaheikki3> I think it was all at this time
[17:23:49] <jaheikki3> Let's end meeting now. Thanks for your participation
[17:23:52] <jaheikki3> Bye!
[17:25:46] <fkleint_> bye
