Minutes from mozdev sysadmin meeting on Tuesday, June 10, 2008

Participants: davidwboswell (David Boswell), cdn-work (Chris Neale), gjm (Gerry Murphy), silfreed (Doug Warner)

Community participants: ccaygill, JesperHansen

Discussion was held publically in #mozdev

Discussed developer priorities

- added a new mirror for zurich/switzerland - documented some module settings that caused problems for a PO - setup an ad system so we can track stats for sponsor buttons - updated the /source.html vcs log page to support multiple VCSes - also updated the template /source.html to refer to more VCS types (commmented out) - updated hgweb to run from mod_python (3x faster, slightly more memory usage) - created patch for Apache to get hg setup in production - working on a new bugzilla entry format to help making requests to mozdev easier - try to finish up the bugzilla form today and that'll be it before I'm off for vacation this week

Discussed sysadmin priorities

- log rotating is updated, but transfers to stats wasn't working properly so top 50 page is still a little behind - preparing for an OS update to FreeBSD 7; release on the servers is EOL - tested out eaccelerator again to prepare for ff3 release; still doesn't work with Mozdev code - mysql backup was tweaked to keep 3 generations instead of one

Web stats/Top 50 page

- currently a little behind, should be catching up

Staging server migration

- no updates

data retention policy

- privacy policy is fairly clear that voluntarily submitted info (ie, to mailing list or newsgroup) is public - users don't understand/read that and just want their info removed - current situtation revolves around a person who wants their email to a listremoved w/ no personally identifiable information - previous instances where we told a user we would not remove an email resulted in angry responses - in the future we'll try to educate the user about publically posting to lists and move forward if the user is persistent (while trying to avoid censorship by removing the least amount of data possible)

mercurial rollout timeline

- gjm will try to get things setup in production this week - silfreed will look over things and test out next week when he's back

ssl certs

- the list of domains in bug#19110 should be good to start - GoDaddy requires that any changes to the cert be a new certificate - gjm and davidwboswell will work out details for getting a new cert

Next meeting June 17th, 2008 @ 15:00 UTC in #mozdev
