=== Blueprints: Oneiric Delta Review  ===
lag, rsalveti: you have work items to review your set of Ubuntu patches.  See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam/Specs/KernelOneiricUbuntuDeltaReview .  Note, these are the only remaining work items for this blueprint.

=== Status: General Oneiric  ===
Last week we uploaded the 3.0.0-8.10 Ubuntu kernel.  This was rebased onto upstream stable v3.0.1.  We'll continue to follow upstream stable v3.0.x as we move towards release.  I'd also like to note that v3.1-rc1 came out yesterday.  As such, I'm going to 
begin opening the P-series repo.  Lastly, some upcoming dates to keep in mind are:
  * Aug 11 - Feature Freeze (tomorrow)
  * Sept 1 - Beta 1 (~3 weeks)
  * Sept 15 - Kernel Freeze (~5 weeks)

=== Status: CVE's  ===

=== Status: Stable Kernel Team  ===
== Status of kernels ==

  This is kernel prep week. Kernel prep will probably slip for any kernels which
  do not complete testing and make release this week. I have requested estimates for testing
  completion but have not received them, so I can't make any predictions about when
  we will begin verification for most of the kernels for the next cycle.

  We have had problems with innacurate updates to tracking bugs. In one case a comment
  was added stating that certification testing had begun when it had not. It was only
  determined six days later that testing had not begun.

  Kernel status for each series is as follows:

  * Released
    We're working through issues around pre-mature publishing of hardy kernel to -updates

==== Hardy ====
  * [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/812360|Hardy Tracking Bug]]
  * Was released in error after my status mail incorrectly said it was ready for release.

==== Lucid ====
  * [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/818196|Lucid Tracking Bug]]
  * Awaiting regression testing

==== Maverick ====
  * Previous version was published, prep has begun for next cycle

==== Natty ====
  * [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/818175|Natty Tracking Bug]]
  * Awaiting regression and certification testing
