Status: Saucy Development Kernel

We have recently uploaded a new 3.10.0-5.14 Saucy kernel to the archive.
This includes the v3.10.2 upstream stable patch set, as well as a fix
for a regression which was causing graphics failures on boot. We have
also rebased our unstable branch to begin tracking v3.11-rc2.
I also want to again point out that the 12.04.3 point release is
approaching on Thurs Aug 22. Any kernel patches needing to land in the
12.04.3 point release need to be applied to our Raring kernel tree on
or before Mon July 29 in order to hit the SRU cadence before the point
release. Please get any patches submitted to the mailing list for
proper review as soon as possible.
Important upcoming dates:
Thurs July 25 – Alpha 2 (opt in, 2 days)
Thurs Aug 22 – 12.04.3 (~4 weeks)

Open Discussion or Questions? Raise your hand to be recognized

kamal: Folks playing with 3.11-rc2 should be aware that acpi backlight is borked for many systems. A revert of the offending commits is planned in advance of 3.11-rc3.
The next two meetings will be canceled due to the kernel team sprint. The next meeting will be August 13th, 2013.
