=== Blueprint: hardware-p-kernel-power-management  ===
  No update this week.

=== Status: Precise Development Kernel  ===
  We've recently rebased to upstream stable v3.2.6 and uploaded.  Please
  note that Beta Freeze is next week, Thurs Feb 23.  I ideally want to
  upload our final Beta-1 kernel by the end of the week, but no later than
  Monday.  If there are any patches which need to land, submit them now.
  Important upcoming dates:
   * Thurs Feb 23 - Beta Freeze (~1 week)
   * Thurs Mar 01 - Beta 1 (~2 weeks)

=== Status: CVE's  ===
  Currently we have 73 CVEs on our radar, one new CVEs were added this week.
  See the CVE matrix for the current list:

  Overall the backlog is unchanged this week, though we have closed a couple
  of hardy CVEs and one CVE across the board:

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

  Here is the status for the main kernels, until today (Jan. 24):

   * Hardy - 2.6.24-31.99
    * Several CVE commits. There was also a significant change 
implemented by Tim and Andy for xen and openvz to make
      them easier to maintain.

   * Lucid - 2.6.32-39.86
    * Probably close to 100 upstream stable commits in this upload. We 
were in a holding pattern on lucid last cycle
      as work was done on the 10.04.04 point release. This will get us 
caught up again.

   * Maverick - 2.6.35-32.66
    * Just a couple CVEs.

   * Natty - 2.6.38-13.56
    * Just a couple CVEs.

   * Oneiric - 3.0.0-16.29
    * In addition to some CVEs, there are a bunch of stable upstream
