ARM Status

R/master: first batch of arm multiplatfom patches with support for omap3/4 and
imx6 was sent to the ml, awaiting comments.
In the mean time, i’m tracking down the SATA imx6 regression in 3.8.

Milestone Targeted Work Items

I’ve been trying to clean house with our work items and drop us blow the
trend line. If anyone has items which they can close or postpone,
please do so. Thanks.

      hardware-r-delta-review    3 work items   
   ppisati    hardware-r-kernel-config-review    1 work item

Status: Raring Development Kernel

We have rebased the Raring kernel to the latest v3.8-rc5 upstream
kernel. I’ll plan to upload before EOD tomorrow.
Important upcoming dates:

  • Raring:

    • Mon Feb 18 – 13.04 Month 4 Milestone (~3 weeks)
  • Precise:

    • Thu Feb 14 – 12.04.2 Release (~2 weeks)


Status: CVE’s

Currently we have 34 CVEs on our radar, with 0 CVEs added and 2 CVE retired this week.
See the CVE matrix for the current list:

  • http://people.canonical.com/~kernel/cve/pkg/ALL-linux.html

    Overall the backlog has decreased slightly this week:

  • http://people.canonical.com/~kernel/status/cve-metrics.txt

  • http://people.canonical.com/~kernel/cve/pkg/CVE-linux.txt


Status: Stable, Security, and Bugfix Kernel Updates – Quantal/Precise/Oneiric/Lucid/Hardy

We’re skipping a kernel SRU cadence to allow for an additional 3 weeks of testing for the kernel that will ship with the 12.04.2 point release.
However, due to regressions, we currently have new Precise, Quantal and lts-Quantal kernels in Testing.
Next week the regular SRU cycles will restart.
Future stable cadence cycles:

Status: Raring Development Kernel

We have rebased the Raring kernel to the latest v3.8-rc2 upstream
kernel. We have held off on uploading until we have resolved some DKMS
package build failures. Everyone should also review the
ubuntu-raring/dropped.txt file to review anything that may have
inadvertantly gone missing after the rebase.
Important upcoming dates:

  • Raring:

    • Fri Jan 18 – 13.04 Month 3 Milestone (1 week)
    • Mon Feb 18 – 13.04 Month 4 Milestone (~6 weeks)
  • Precise:

    • Thu Jan 10 – 12.04.2 Kernel Freeze (~2 days)
    • Thu Feb 14 – 12.04.2 Release (~5 weeks)
      We should have the last DKMS issues fixed tomorrow.
      We may have -rc3 by then as well.


Status: CVE’s

Currently we have 33 CVEs on our radar, with 4 CVE added and 2 CVEs retired since last meeting (11th Dec).
