=== What was done engineering wise? ===
This week we uploaded the 3.5.0-7.7 Ubuntu kernel to Quantal.  It contained some
misc bug fixes and kernel config changes, but no upstream version changes. We
also uploaded this to the **ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/q-lts-backport PPA to facilitate
testing of the 12.10 kernel in 12.04.  Please test and let us know your results.

We also opened the ubuntu-r kernel git repo to begin tracking what will be the
upstream v3.6 kernel.  We will use this in evaluation of the v3.6 kernel as a
candidate for Quantal.

=== What's about to land that might impact the other teams and release as a whole? ===
Nothing at this time.
