Fwd: Preparing for 14.04.4 release on Feb 18

Just a heads-up. As you can see 14.04.4 has been delayed another week
and hopefully the trusty-proposed repos will be disabled in the iso's by
Saturday. This is important because I'm tracking two bugs that I believe
may be fixed with packages from proposed but still present w/o proposed.
Also, just as Adam says, this is not something we can opt out of! I'll
do my level best to cover things on the testing end but we absolutely
need someone to handle the electronic ink. It would be nice to know
who's going to do this before the last minute.

For starters, people may note that the date in the subject is a week
later than they were expecting. Due to a lack of testing of the HWE
stack, and a few other compounded issues (like my being ill), I'm
delaying the release until the 18th, prefering having it done right,
rather than having it done quickly.
With that said, here's the general plan:
1) If you haven't already smoketested some dailies to make sure your
flavour is working alright with the HWE stack, please do so now.
2) If you have last minute fixes that affect the live session or the
installer, get them in the queue now and bring my attention to
them. Anything that doesn't fit those two categories will likely
not make it into the point release (but will be fine as SRUs as
usual after the release).
3) I will be promoting the HWE stack to -updates and switching the
ISO builds to exclude -proposed by the end of the week, and we
can consider any images produced over the weeked as RCs for the
4) Testing in the first few days of next week should lead us to a
set of images we're confident about releasing on Thursday.
Remember that *all* flavours signed up to be LTS flavours for trusty,
so do find some people to test, and remind your counterparts from
other flavours that they're on the hook for giving us a pass/fail,
and do be good citizens and help out where people are lacking in the
right hardware or manpower to test a specific image.
