=== Status: Stable, Security, and Bugfix Kernel Updates -
Oneiric/Natty/Maverick/Lucid/Hardy  ===
 Here is the status for the main kernels, until today (Apr. 10):

 Oneiric has been somewhat problematic. We ran into a couple of very bad
 that were pretty quickly identified. Our policy is to "revert
aggressively" however
 our number one rule is to "Use our best judgement and do the right
thing". In this
 case we are also running into the end of the Precise development cycle
when testing
 resources (human) are scarce. After discussing this with a number of
people we have
 decided to fix these known regressions and also pull in the stable
release that was
 sitting on master-next and crank that out. The cycle will be extended
with regression
 testing happening the week of May 1st.

  * Hardy    - 2.6.24-31.101 - Nothing this cycle
  * Lucid    - 2.6.32-41.88  - Verification; 52 commits in total.
  * Maverick - 2.6.35-32.68  - Ready for -updates; NOTE: THIS IS THE
  * Natty    - 2.6.38-14.58  - Ready for -updates; 12 commits in total.
Mostly eCryptfs and KVM.
  * Oneiric  - 3.0.0-19.32   - Verification;
