Status: Saucy Development Kernel

We are ~2 days away from Final Freeze. We do however expect additional
kernel uploads hopefully by EOD today for both phablet and distro
kernels. These uploads will primarily provide some critical bug fixes
for AppArmor. Additionally, for the distro kernel we may take advantage
of this upload opportunity to land some patches we were queuing for SRU.
All the patches in question are documented at each of the following bug
reports: LP:1208988, LP:1218004, LP:1235523, LP:1235973, LP:1235977,
LP:1235161, LP:1235914. Beyond this, we do not anticipate any further
uploads until the first round of kernel SRU’s following 13.10’s release.
Also having passed Kernel Freeze last week, I’ll plan on sending out the
obligatory emails regarding Saucy’s final kernel version and configuration.
Important upcoming dates:
Thurs Oct 10 – Final Freeze (~2 days away)
Thurs Oct 17 – 13.10 Release (~1 week away)
