=== ARM Status  ===
 Q/master: lp1176977 ("XFS instability on armhf under load") - turned
out some
 xfs tests failure that i was experiencing were already present in 3.5.y
 vanilla for arm, so none of the backported patches were responsible for it.
 On the other hand, there's a new 100% reproducible hang while running
 tests/generic/0368. Still working on it, collecting patches, pinging
upstream,
 etcetc.
 */highbank: lp1182637("cpu_offlining fails to run on ARM") - according to
 robherr this is due to a different u-boot that we are using, waiting for an
 update.
 S/master: did some testing of 3.10-rcX for omap[34], imx6 and vexpress, so
 far so good.

=== Status: Saucy Development Kernel  ===
 Our Saucy unstable branch has been rebased to the latest v3.10-rc5
 upstream kernel.  We are still holding off on a v3.10 based upload due
 to missing AUFS support as well as some DKMS package failures we would
 like to resolve.  We have however gone ahead and rebased our Saucy master
 branch to the recent v3.9.5 upstream stable and plan to upload that
 today.
 On the mobile front I'm hearing news that the container flip should
 hopefully be happening this week.
 Important upcoming dates:
 Thurs June 20 - Alpha 1 (opt in)
