Status: Quantal Development Kernel

Last week we uploaded the 3.5.0-16.[24,25] kernels. With Quantal kernel
freeze approaching in 2 days, we will upload one final kernel before
freeze by EOD tomorrow, Wed Oct 3. Following kernel freeze all patches
are subject to the SRU policy and only critical bug fixes will warrent
an upload. Non critical bug fixes and changes will be targetted to the
first Quantal SRU kernel.
As usual, all kernels will also get uploaded to the q-lts-backport [1]
PPA to help facilitate testing of the 12.10 kernel in 12.04. We welcome
anyone to please install, test, and let us know your feedback.

Open Discussion or Questions? Raise your hand to be recognized

dhillon-v10 would like to discuss his approach to module signing. dhillon-v10 was asked how his approach is different from david howell’s. The approach from dhillon-v10 is a hybrid between what chrome os does and what David Howell posted.

It was suggested that dhillon-v10 post his approach to the kernel team mailing list. That way it preserves the discussion and gives people in different time zones an ability to review it.
