Milestone Targeted Work Items

That link acutally displays no work items as the new tracking checkpoints have just been created. I’ll get our blueprints updated. Expect an itemized list in next week’s meeting. For now, I’d suggest looking at:

  • http://status.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-raring/canonical-kernel-distro-team.html


Status: Raring Development Kernel

Last week we uploaded the first v3.7-rc4 based Raring kernel to the archive. It is currently sitting in raring-proposed. We have also just rebased our raring tree to upstream v3.7-rc5.
Important upcoming dates:

  • 13.04 Month 1 Checkpoint – ??? (release schedule has not been updated)


Status: CVE’s

Currently we have 26 CVEs on our radar, with 3 CVE added and 1 CVE retired since last meeting.

Open Discussion or Questions? Raise your hand to be recognized

dhillon-v10 would like to discuss his approach to module signing. dhillon-v10 was asked how his approach is different from david howell’s. The approach from dhillon-v10 is a hybrid between what chrome os does and what David Howell posted.

It was suggested that dhillon-v10 post his approach to the kernel team mailing list. That way it preserves the discussion and gives people in different time zones an ability to review it.

ARM Status

Q/omap4: a new Q/omap4 3.5 kernel was uploaded yesterday (3.5.0-208.14) and a new one that includes all the patches that went into tilt-3.4[1] after i
started my porting is being worked on.
Hopefully this new one (3.5.0-209.15 [2]) will be the last one before beta1,
and it should fix the hangs rsalveti experiences with pvr-omap4.
Source code is available here:
