available in Precise:
  -Feedback, bug reports, testing, and comment appreciated.

* MAAS[1] (Metal as a service) announced, and effort continues to
improve the service.

* Juju Charm Store landing.

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

* Amazon AWS Ubuntu Images: Officially replacing the existing EC2
archive mirrors with mirrors backed by Amazon S3 on April 18th. The
delay in switching has been due to an HTTP pipelining bug 948461[2].
HTTP pipelining has been disabled in the latest AMIs, however users will
need to update to the latest AMI, upgrade cloud-init, or manually
disable http piplining[3].
