Status: Trusty Development Kernel

The master branch for Trusty remains rebased on the v3.12.4 upstream
stable kernel. Our unstable branch has most recently rebased to
v3.13-rc4. Again, we don’t anticipate a v3.13 based upload for Trusty
until after the new year.
I would also like to point out that the 12.04.4 point release was pushed
out by 2 weeks from Jan 23 to Feb 6. This will not have any impact on
the kernel, we will still plan on shipping with the kernel we currently
have going through -proposed.

Milestone Targeted Work Items

First, a big thank you to apw for wrestling our kernel related
blueprints and work items into place to make the above links useful
again. Our work items and owners are as follows:

   apw    core-1311-kernel    5 work items   
      core-1311-cross-compilation    3 work items   
      core-1311-hwe-plans    1 work item   
      core-1311-secure-boot    1 work item   
   bjf    core-1311-dmraid2mdadm    1 work item   
   cking    core-1311-kernel    2 work items   
   ogasawara    core-1311-kernel    4 work items   
      client-1311-xorg-general    1 work item

   rtg    core-1311-hwe-plans    1 work item   
      core-1311-kernel    1 work item   


Status: Trusty Development Kernel

The master branch for trusty has been rebased to the latest v3.12.2
upstream stable kernel. We also continue to track the latest v3.13
kernel on our unstable branch and most recently rebased to v3.13-rc2.
Again, we shall switch our master branch from tracking v3.12 to v3.13
once we cycle through the initial -rc’s and feel it is stable enough for
wider consumtion, ie uploaded to the archive.

    patches needed to have landed in the SRU cadence starting
    this week to make the 12.04.4 point release. Contact us
    *immediately* if there are patches which need to land.
