Status: Trusty Development Kernel

We’ve finished cleaning up some DKMS packages for Trusty and are
preparing for our first v3.13 based kernel upload to the archive.
This is specifically based on the latest v3.13-rc7 upstream kernel.
I would also like to remind everyone that the 12.04.4 point release is
now taking place on Thurs Feb 6. The kernel is currently frozen for
12.04.4 and we do not anticipate any respins at this time.

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.

again. Our work items and owners are as follows:

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.

Milestone Targeted Work Items

While marginally useful for tracking work items in the past, the above
links are completely useless at the moment. I have manually reviewed
work items from the core-1311-kernel and core-1311-hwe-plans blueprints.
However, beyond those two, I’m oblivious to what other work our team or
individuals were signed up for.

Status: Trusty Development Kernel

For those unaware, the ubuntu-trusty git repo is open and available at:
git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-trusty.git . The master branch is
currently tracking the latest 3.12.1 upstream stable kernel while the
unstable branch has most recently been rebased to v3.13-rc1. We shall
move our master branch to track v3.13 after some baking. We will also
upload to the archive when it’s ready.

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.
