=== Blueprint: hardware-p-kernel-power-management  ===
  nothing to report this week

=== Status: Precise Development Kernel  ===
  We uploaded the 3.2.0-18.29 kernel last Friday and we have just
  rebased master-next to upstream stable v3.2.10 (minus 1 patch which
  introduces a build failure).  Beta-2 Freeze is next Thurs, March 22.  I
  plan to upload this Friday and hope that this will be the kernel we use
  for Beta-2.  Should any additional patches land which are deemed
  necessary for Beta-2 we would have enough time to upload again no later
  than Tues, March 20.  Any uploads after that are subject to approval by
  the release team.
  Important upcoming dates:
   * Thurs Mar 22 - Beta-2 Freeze (~1 week)
   * Thurs Mar 29 - Beta-2 (~2 weeks)

=== Status: CVE's  ===
  Currently we have 71 CVEs on our radar, two new CVEs were added this week.
  See the CVE matrix for the current list:

  In addition to the two new CVEs one gained an additional fix which has
  also been applied.  Overall the backlog is unchanged this week:
