=== Milestone Targeted Work Items  ===
I'll begin posting my nag table once the following url is generated and
available -

=== Status: Precise Development Kernel  ===
We have uploaded the 3.1.0-2.3 Ubuntu kernel which was based on the
upstream v3.1 kernel. Upstream is in the early -rc releases of the v3.2
kernel, ie currently v3.2-rc1.  Given a higher likelihood for
instability with an early -rc, we will hold off doing the first
3.2.0-1.1 upload until we rebase onto upstream v3.2-rc2. I would
anticipate this prior to Alpha 1 (Thurs Dec 1). If there are any patches
which need to land in the 12.04 kernel, submit them now so that they
receive adequate testing and feedback.

=== Status: CVE's  ===
Currently open CVEs for each supported branch:

We have had a fairly large number of new CVEs added since the last
report. Progress continues well with the overall backlog remaining
pretty much constant.  We retain a couple of stubourn CVEs which still
have no fix upstream.  Some process fixes in the security team have
brought down the number of pending fixes and produced USNs.

=== Status: Stable, Security, and Bugfix Kernel Updates -
Oneiric/Natty/Maverick/Lucid/Hardy  ===
bjf is sprinting and herton is on holiday.  We'll get updates next week.

=== Open Discussion or Questions? Raise your hand to be recognized  ===
Meeting chair...I'll chair the next few meetings and then jsalisbury has
graciously offered to chair indefinitely going forward.
