Discussed developer priorities

- drupal tweaks to install profile - helped move bugzilla bugs along for bz 3 upgrade - updated front page to pull news from our blogs - cleaned up mime type detection to fix some bugs I encountered - worked on per-product perms for bugzilla - we can start offering per-product perms to users and I can handle setting them up - I can talk to bz devs to see what problems we might encounter in the future w/ lots of groups

Server load discussion

- David mentioned he's noticed the server getting slower recently - server started swapping in October and hasn't stopped - gjm/tanker will start looking into ways this can be improved (additional server, apache cleanup work, etc)

Discussed sysadmin priorities

- mailing list delays have been eliminated - spam/viris filtering was scanning mailing list data twice - held message time was changed to 30 days; dropped queue from 120+k messages to 66k messages - bz upgrade to 3.0 went smoothly - bugzilla database is split from the tigris db now - apache rewriting improvements continue - will be looking into PHP5 upgrade on vebzom soon - discovered a problem with the web stats - countries is showing the virtual domain's contries, not the visitor's country; work is pending - fixed bugzilla cookies working outside /bugs/ - potential security leak
