Hey guys,

I wanted to share with you the status of daily landing for ubuntu 
upstream code. For those not aware of what this is, our goal set up at 
UDS was to get to daily land the wonderful work that the Product 
Strategy team is doing upstream directly in ubuntu. That way, we'll be 
able to deliver on the platform to our users fresh code, latest bug 
fixes and having a really reactive feedback loop between the users and 

I think most of you are reading planet.ubuntu.com, but in case you 
didn't, I'll point people interested in this serie of 5 blog posts I 
made concerning the daily release process which is now activated across 
the whole unity stack for more than 60 components! (some more projects 
are still not under this process, but this will come with time and 
integration tests coming). The journey is starting with that url: 
Take some coffee and enjoy! :)

Most of what is written there is also now available with a more formal 
tone than blogging on the ubuntu wiki ( 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DailyRelease) to have a complete documentation 
on this process. I would like to especially point to the FAQ ( 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DailyRelease/FAQ) directed to upstream 
developers who are part of this process and ubuntu maintainer when they 
may have questions when changing anything in those packages.

I won't tell it enough, but this was a big time and cross-team effort, 
thanks again to everyone involved who were normally quoted in the 
various blog posts. :)
Let's release everyday and keep both quality and rapid development 
practice being at the center of our focus!
