Oneiric/ti-omap4: a new BSP/kernel update (1202.6) is in the pipe.
Oneiric/tegra: nothing new to report.

=== Status: General Oneiric  ===
TOPIC: Status: General Oneiric (ogasawara)
Some important dates to keep in mind are as follows:
 * Aug 25 - Beta Freeze (~1 week)
 * Sept 1 - Beta 1 (~2 weeks)
 * Sept 15 - Kernel Freeze (~4 weeks)
 * Sept 22 - Beta 2 (~5 weeks)
We'll continue pull in bug fixes and follow upstream stable v3.0.x as we
move towards release.  I'd also like to note that I've opened the
P-series git repo and recently rebased it to v3.1-rc2.  It's available
in my personal repo on zinc -
git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ogasawara/ubuntu-p.git .  I'll make an official
announcement to the mailing list shortly.

CVE-2011-1020.  Investigation ongoing.

=== Status: Stable Kernel Team  ===
TOPIC: Status: Stable Kernel Team (sconklin)
||== Status of kernels ==
||
|| This is kernel verification week. All kernels except Natty were ready for verification this
|| week, but a regression has been discovered in all kernels except Natty due to application of
|| a CVE patch. All kernels will be respun and further status will be announced when we have
|| estimated completion times for kernel prep.
||
|| The CVE tracking bug for the discovered regressionis here:
|| https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/813026/
||
|| Kernel status for each series is as follows:
||
||=== Hardy ===
|| * [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/8239120|Hardy Tracking Bug]]
|| * Is being held for a CVE regression (was ready for copying to -updates)
||
||=== Lucid ===
|| * [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/824148|Lucid Tracking Bug]]
|| * Is being held for a CVE regression (was in verification)
||
||=== Maverick ===
|| * [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/823306|Maverick Tracking Bug]]
|| * Is being held for a CVE regression (was in verification)
||
||=== Natty ===
|| * [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/818175|Natty Tracking Bug]]
|| * Is being held for an [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/814325|Intel graphics regression ]]
||   This regression also exists in upstream kernels, and the hardware enablement team is
||   invesitgating this and working with upstream.
