Blueprints: Natty Bug Handling

  • Andy and I will review the remaining items to see if any will be postponed.

    Additionally, I will be finishing up several that have been put off of completion due to other priorities taking precedence.

Status: General Natty

The natty kernel is now at v2.6.38-6.34 (v2.6.38-rc8 based). We have had some instability due to compiler changes from Linaro, but seem to be coming out the other side. v2.6.38 dropped today and kernels are in test prior to upload. We remain concentrated on bug squashing for Natty. One area of concern is an interaction between vesafb and drmfb during boot, in some cases we are triggering gpu hangs; a prototype startup wherein we load vesafb later
is in test. We are closing in on Beta-1 freeze which is a week on thursday.

Status: Stable Kernel Team (sconklin / bjf)

  • This week is the start of yet another stable kernel release cycle. I’m in the process of getting git repos in shape and packages put together.
  • A request for feedback has gone out regarding the kernel SRU workflow. The proposal can be found at: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/kernel-sru-workflow

Status: HW Cert. Team

This week we finised testing both the Maverick and the Lucid kernel. Results are publicly available:
All the 75 systems passed the SRU tests (the minor errors are problems with the script themselves).
So, from our side, they are good to go.
We updated the tracking bugs with this information as well.

Incoming Bugs: Bug day report

Last week’s bug day was a success. We had several individuals helping to triage new state bugs and we got a number of them triaged and into the proper status. The next bug day will be next Tuesday. The focus will be on bugs in the confirmed state.

Triage Status

There is always tremendous interest in having me look at a particular bug here and there. I am still working to get these interested parties to approach me in the pulblic channel versus currently getting pinged in private windows. We have had some further interest in working bugs from individuals geared toward beginning device driver and module work. As much as it pains me, we had to explain that bugs were likely not the best way to go to get into module development. :-)
