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).
See the CVE matrix for the current list:
