  || apw       || hardware-p-kernel-boot                || 3 work items ||
  ||           || hardware-p-kernel-delta-review        || 1 work item  ||
  ||           || foundations-p-ipv6                    || 1 work item  ||
  || cking     || hardware-p-kernel-delta-review        || 1 work item  ||

  || tgardner  || hardware-p-kernel-version-and-flavors || 1 work item  ||
  ||           || hardware-p-kernel-delta-review        || 1 work item  ||
If your name is in the above table, please review your Alpha-1 work 
items and either get them closed or push them out to the next milestone. 
  Remember, Alpha-1 is Thurs Dec 1.

=== Blueprint: hardware-p-kernel-power-management  ===
  Power Management:
  * i386 vs i386-pae vs amd64 power measurements; various user space 
scenarios
  * instrument ACPI battery information against different scenarios
  * use ACPI battery analysis to improve powerstat, push out V0.00.04
  * instrument unity 2D vs 3D in a limited set of tests
  * started instrumenting powertop tunables on sandybridge H/W, compare 
to Win7

=== Status: Precise Development Kernel  ===
We have uploaded the 3.2.0-2.5 Ubuntu kernel which was based on the 
latest upstream v3.2-rc3 kernel.  Please install and test on any kit you 
have.  Feedback is appreciated.  We are in a soft freeze for Alpha-1, we 
do not intend any uploads until after the milestone.

Important Upcoming Dates:
   * Thurs Dec 1 - Alpha 1 (2 days)
   * Thurs Feb 2 - Alpha 2 (~ 9 weeks)

We gained yet another 5 CVEs this week.  We closed out a couple.  Two of 
the new CVEs await upstream fixes.


=== Status: Stable, Security, and Bugfix Kernel Updates - 
Oneiric/Natty/Maverick/Lucid/Hardy  ===

   * Maverick - 2.6.35-31.63
    * prep'd and uploaded
   * Natty - 2.6.38-13.53
    * prep'd and uploaded
   * Oneiric - 3.0.0-14.23
    * In verification phase, 4 bugs needing verification.

  For SRUs, SRU report is a good source of information:

=== Open Discussion or Questions? Raise your hand to be recognized  ===
* Discussion about uploading non-pae kernels and fixing the Apple MAC 
installs as well as the crda stuff.

* Is the installer ready for us to use generic ?

* Hesitation about removing the non-pae kernel so close to the milestone 
without giving more of a heads up.
	* Goal is prior to Alpha 2.

*  A work item will be listed for for the installer work.

* The crda bits are not critical for alpha1? I could see an upload for 
the apple mac installs, or just release noting it for now.
	* Wireless-crda converted to a meta package and uploaded
	* Apple can be release noted.
