== What was done engineering wise? ==

  * Few bug fixes, quickly stopped because of the absence of test 
framework and diverging expectations between Unity upstream and 
Platforms new requirements
  * Worked on clarifying the level of tests and defining which types of 
tests (user-acceptance, system integration, unit test) are required for 
different types of tasks (bug fixes, feature development)
  * Defined 2 tasks forces to unblock the situation and create 2 
end-to-end test cases, to serve as as reference for future development 
work; ETA: next week; this is our ONLY PRIORITY, since the embargo has 
stalled ALL of the development workflow
  * Instantiated Kanban workflow connected with Design and Platform bug 
backlog at http://people.canonical.com/~platform/design/upstream.html

== What's about to land that might impact the other teams? ==

  * Nothing.

== Dependencies on other teams, blocking items ==

  * Waiting for IS to put Unity tarmac setup into production.
  * Blocked on diverging definitions of tests and quality assurance 

== Blueprints ==


Burndown and spec completion levels:

  * For alpha-1: TBD
  * Entire cycle: TBD

== Release targetted bugs being worked on/monitored ==
