Hey folks.
I've finished the merge of the packaging, which didn't turn out to be
as bad as I had thought. Test packages for amd64 and i386 as well as
the source can be found in ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/pulse-testing for
vivid. The PPA is enabled for armhf, however due to Launchpad's PPA
armhf setup, the armhf debs FTBFS at the moment.

For now, I have built them by hand and uploaded them to
http://people.canonical.com/~themuso/pulse-5.0-armhf-vivid should you
be interested in testing them. Pulse 5 has bluez support, however I
have no idea how well that works with the touch bluetooth stuff,
although I did manage to port our bluetooth patches to pulse 5 during
the package merge.

Since Debian has enabled the test suite, I have ntoiced on a couple
of occasions that the test suite randomly fails on armhf in the
htread test. It worked for the occasion when I uploaded the above
linked debs, so not sure what is going on.

I am going to work on having Pulse 6 RC debs available shortly for
testing as well.

Thanks for working on this!

The desktop team has requested that we upload Pulse 6 RC ASAP to
...in order to test the Bluez 5 transition.

Is this something you can do? Given that you have already started
working on the Pulse 6 packages and that I believe you have access to
the ppa (which I probably don't).

Just for the record, as discussed in the session, all core devs have
access to the ppa.

Yes, that's why I assumed I can't upload anything there, because I'm not a core dev, and not a member of ubuntu-desktop.

Oh really? I was assuming you were!

If Luke is going to do it, can we have it quickly? The whole bluetooth
work for this cycle is blocking on this.

Well, there's certainly work that can be done in parallel, e g, figuring out why the bluez5 package hangs in the postinst script (at least it does so here). And there are other packages that should be uploaded to the ppa as well, e g, the bluez 5 version of the bluetooth indicator?

Did you ping Mathieu about it?

On working on other part: Mathieu wanted to ensure first that the bluez5 package is working correctly thanks to the pulseaudio implementation before tackling other WI (there is no bluez5 version of the bluetooth indicator for instance, but developing on something you are not 100% sure that it's working).

I agree with Mathieu's approach as it seems that using pulseaudio as a test was the lowest hanging fruit.
