We are also starting to work on opening up our first v3.14 rebase which will be available from our ubuntu-trusty unstable branch.
I want to also point out that the proposal for a 12.04.5 point release appears to have widespread support. This 5th point release for Precise will provide the linux-lts-trusty kernel in 12.04.

This will officially introduce the Saucy hardware enablement kernel back
into Precise.

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.

blueprints and work items into place to make the above links useful
again. Our work items and owners are as follows:

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.

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.

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.
