Milestone Targeted Work Items

The links above have 0 content for Utopic. I’ll try to get those fixed
up to better reflect our work moving forward.


Status: Utopic Development Kernel

Our Trusty kernel has been pocket copied to seed Utopic. We have opened
the ubuntu-utopic kernel tree. The master-next branch is currently
tracking the v3.15-rc3 kernel. We likely won’t upload a v3.15 based
kernel until a few more -rc releases come out.

ARM Status

T/master-next: LP1303657 (“Cannot boot trusty kernel on qemu-system-arm”) – we
were missing the correct dtb (wasn’t necessary in S) and qemu was waiting for a
console over jtag (HVC_DCC) that would never show up – waiting for a
confirmation from the reporter before sending the patches.
