I'd note that this section of the meeting is becoming less and less
useful to me in its current form. I'd like to take a vote to skip this
section until I/we can find a better solution. All in favor (ie +1)?
I'll take silence as agreement as well :)
ogasawara: ok, motion passed.
(actually the same could be said for the ARM status part since support
it's part of generic now FWIW)
Dropping ARM Status from this meeting as well.
=== Status: Utopic Development Kernel ===
We have rebased our Utopic kernel to v3.15 final and uploaded
(3.15.0-6.11). As noted in previous meetings, we are planning on
converging on the v3.16 kernel for Utopic. We have started tracking
v3.16-rc1 in our "unstable" ubuntu-utopic branch. We'll let this
marinate and bake for a bit before we do an official v3.16 based upload
to the archive.
Important upcoming dates:
