== What was done engineering wise? ==

  * Good progresses on the test automation front, with both taskforces close to delivering reference end-to-end test examples
   * Taskforce #1 is focused on the automation of a user-acceptance test, ie interactive and graphical test cases. This team reached the state where the whole branch submission, code landing, and test automation process is running in production; projects have been migrated to split UI and non-UI related test suites; work is still ongoing on the enhancement of autopilot, bamf and the launcher to be able to automate the test scenario
   * The Testing Taskforce #2 is focused on window manager and X server tests automation, more particularly system integration testing. This team reached the stage where the compiz-core can run on top of a test X server (xig) and work is close to completion to be able to run the window stacking module (ie a sub-set of the core) independently. That will allow compiz internals and algorithms to be more rigorously tested.
   * Thus, 1 blocker from last week is removed: tarmac setup
   * 1 blocker remains: formal acceptance of the test level policy

  * Some more bug fixes have been reviewed and accumulate in the landing queue, awaiting the results of the Testing Taskforces above.

  * A few bug fixes were released though, with tests that follow our test plan requirements (ie unit tests for libs, and manual test cases for hard to reproduce crashers. See [Bug:764044]&  [Bug:819721]

  * Overall, there are 6 SRU-1 fixes released, 19 blocked in the release queue, 14 in progress. See https://launchpad.net/unity/+milestone/4.26.0

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

  * The test automation infrastructure and PPA builds will stress the capacity of the jenkins and ppa builders.

== Dependencies on other teams, blocking items ==

  * 1 blocker remains: formal acceptance of the test level policy

== Blueprints ==
