=== What was done engineering wise? ===
We intend to upload the 3.5.0-12.12 Quantal kernel before the end of this week.
The most notable changes in this kernel will be updates to the brcmsmac and 
apple-gmux drivers, a fix for CVE-2012-3412, and misc bug fixes.  As usual, we
will also upload 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.

=== What's about to land that might impact the other teams and release as a whole? ===
As well as the 3.5.0-12.12 upload, we will likely plan a final kernel upload
next Tues in preparation for Quantal Beta-1 freeze.
