Milestone Targeted Work Items

I’ll begin posting my nag table once the following url is generated and available – http://people.canonical.com/~platform/workitems/precise/canonical-kernel-team-oneiric-alpha-1.html is not yet available.


Status: Precise Development Kernel

We have uploaded the 3.1.0-2.3 Ubuntu kernel which was based on the upstream v3.1 kernel. Upstream is in the early -rc releases of the v3.2 kernel, ie currently v3.2-rc1. Given a higher likelihood for instability with an early -rc, we will hold off doing the first 3.2.0-1.1 upload until we rebase onto upstream v3.2-rc2. I would anticipate this prior to Alpha 1 (Thurs Dec 1). If there are any patches which need to land in
the 12.04 kernel, submit them now so that they receive adequate testing and feedback.


Status: CVE’s

Currently open CVEs for each supported branch:

We have had a fairly large number of new CVEs added since the last report.
Progress continues well with the overall backlog remaining pretty much
constant. We retain a couple of stubourn CVEs which still have no fix
upstream. Some process fixes in the security team have brought down
the number of pending fixes and produced USNs.
