=== ARM Status  ===
For every arm flavour but natty/ti-omap4 an update should be on its way out. Mainly the updated kernels contain CVEs fixes.
Oneiric/ti-omap4: work continues on lp709245, found a patchset that should enable localtimers even in the nosmp case but it doesn't work out of the box, i'm debugging it ATM.

=== Status: General Oneiric  ===
We've been uploading some last minute bug fixes prior to the Beta Freeze on Thurs.  We uploaded the 3.0.0-9.13 Ubuntu kernel yesterday to fix a WARNING due to duplicate backlight registration, see LP 831542.  We've just now uploaded the 3.0.0-9.14 kernel 
to make sure ECRYPT_FS=y, see LP 827197.  We intend for this to be the last upload prior to Beta Freeze and the 3.0.0-9.14 kernel will be the kernel that will ship with the Beta-1 release.
  * [[https://launchpad.net/bugs/831542|Launchpad bug 831542 in linux (Ubuntu) "WARNING: cannot create duplicate filename intel_backlight" [Low,Fix released] ]]
  * [[https://launchpad.net/bugs/827197|Launchpad bug 827197 in linux (Ubuntu Oneiric) "/usr/bin/ecryptfs-setup-private fails with exit status 1 during install - User's home directory not encrypted" [High,Fix released] ]]

Also, some important dates to keep in mind are as follows:
  * Sept 1 - Beta 1 (~1 weeks)
  * Sept 15 - Kernel Freeze (~3 weeks)
  * Sept 22 - Beta 2 (~4 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 the P-series git repo was recently rebased it to v3.1-rc3.  It's available at git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-p.git master-next .

=== Status: CVE's  ===
Currently open CVEs for each supported branch:

With the regressions on the master branches resolving we have now pulled the depenadant branches up to date pulling some 78 CVE fixes into those branches.  We have had a new CVE added since last week.

=== Status: Stable, Security, and Bugfix Kernel Updates - Natty/Maverick/Lucid/Hardy ===
== Status of kernels ==

  This would normally be kernel testing week, but we are still finishing verifications
  for Lucid and Maverick due to extra time required to find and fix regressions in this
  cycle. In addition, another new regression was reported against Lucid.

  * [[http://people.canonical.com/~kernel/reports/sru-report.html|Detailed Information Here]]

  Kernel status for each series is as follows:

=== Hardy ===
  * Released

=== Lucid ===
  * [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/828375|Lucid Tracking Bug]]
  * Awaiting verification
  * A new regression was reported, and a fix has probably be found. It requires
    another respin of the kernel, but verification can continue.
    [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/828550|Latest Lucid Regression]]

=== Maverick ===
  * [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/823306|Maverick Tracking Bug]]
  * Awaiting verification completion

=== Natty ===
  * Released

  Current Kernel versions are available here: http://people.canonical.com/~kernel/reports/versions.html
