General server team work we'd like to track for the post Yakkety release.

Needs approval
Series goal:
Milestone target:


- add at least one more dep8 test to each of the server seed packages: RFC
 (jgrimm) nice idea, maybe first do an audit of where we are at today.
- fixing, fixing, fixing to get number of triaged and considered valid open bugs to stabilize as we track them: RFC
 (jgrimm) implicitly part of our job to drive this down. I'm open to a specific goal, or better tracking, or. again maybe we start with analysis of where we are at today, and set some goals..
 (paelzer) I think the bug triage duty tracking we currently have is good, for this cycle we have to clear all old missing triage times and then the first target IMHO would be to achieve to stabilize the number of open-agreed-to-be-a-real-issue (read =server subscribed). It is rising ever since we track it that way, the velocity of new issues and velocity of fixing them has to become even or Quality and Quality perception will get worse.
- (smoser) no more systemctl status == 'degraded'
Orphans in Debian status (e.g. quagga atm): TODO
Investigate heimdal - Debian to move away from: TODO
Investigate seed of sysstat: TODO
Investigate NTPSEC, Kea, other next gen services (maybe 18.04 plans): TODO
Investigate apache2 http2 readiness/stability (LP: #1658469)
 (teward) I think you need to coord. with mdeslaur and sarnold on this one - if I remember right, NGINX has HTTP/2 but only because nginx rolls its own implementation, while Apache2 uses another package/library for HTTP/2 that the Security Team NACK'd.
 (nacc) ACK, I wonder if we can ship mod-http2 in universe (will need build delta).
[powersj] Server ISO seed/tasksel evaluation:
[nacc] PHP7.1 transition (LP: #1667834)
dlm -> dlm-controld transition (will need to be kept through 18.04 for LTS upgraders) (LP: #1669133)
  - Add transitional dummy binary package to rename back
  - Drop delta in lvm2 and ocfs2-tools
