== What was done engineering wise? ==

This past week we uploaded the 3.2.0-18.28 kernel.  This included a
rebase to upstream stable v3.2.9, re-enablement of AUFS, updated
AppArmor patches, support for Intel Lynx Point devices, support for
clickpad detection, and some misc config updates.  We also uploaded the
first linux-backports-modules-3.2.0 package which contained an updated
compat-wireless stack from v3.3-rc1.

We have a few remaining Beta-2 work items.  None are release critical.

== What's about to land that might impact the other teams? ==

We intend to upload the 3.2.0-18.29 kernel by end of day Friday March
09.  This will include security fixes for CVE-2012-1097, some additional
Hyper-V updates, and misc bug fixes.
