Meeting Agenda]]


=== ARM Status  ===
  Q/omap4: a new Q/omap4 3.5 kernel is out (3.5.0-211.18) and it contains:
  * fixes for /dev/rtc
  * an updated kernel rebased on Ubuntu-3.5.0-15.22
  /dev/rtc was the last item on my todo list: we are feature complete and
  work is concentrating on squashing bugs and closing tickets from now on.

  kernel which we intend to ship with Beta-2.  This has also been uploaded
  to the q-lts-backport [1] PPA to help facilitate testing of the 12.10
  kernel in 12.04.  We welcome anyone to please install, test, and let us
