Hi All,

Now that we are past the Ubuntu Saucy Salamander 13.10 Kernel Freeze, the
Ubuntu Kernel Team felt this would be an appropriate time to officially
confirm the Ubuntu 13.10 kernel will be based on the upstream v3.11 Linux
kernel [1].  For those seeking the specific details of all the changes
provided in the Ubuntu 13.10 kernel, please refer to the ubuntu-saucy git
repository [2].  We have also categorized the Ubuntu specific changes in
our SaucyKernelDeltaReview wiki for anyone interested [3].

We also want to take this time to advertise what we intend to be the final
kernel configurations for the main distro kernel flavors as well.  The
purpose is to expose the main configuration changes and provide pointers to
the full configurations for those who are interested.  To aid in the
comparison of kernel config changes from Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring) to Ubuntu
13.10 (Saucy), we have generated a kernel configuration comparison report
[4].  We have also posted the full Ubuntu 13.10 configurations for each
arch and flavor [5].
