== What was done engineering wise? ==

  * Lot of bugs fixing
  * New lightdm and unity-greeter release fixing quite some milestoned bugs
  * Unity 5.10 is being prepared (to land next week)

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

  * No direct impact on other teams but GNOME 3.4.1 tarballs will be 
rolled out on the 16th and would be good to get in the lts as we can

== Dependencies on other teams, blocking items ==

re: bug 966294 ("Ubiquity loops forever from ubiquity_webcam_play") from 
foundation, desktop doesn't have anyone working on or knowing gstreamer 
and that's not likely going to be looked at before tuesday, we can try 
to help but are probably not better placed that foundation or any other 
team to debug that codebase

== New Desktop Release Notes ==

Nothing new this week.

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

triaged/in progress:

load]'': Fixed mountall to create tmpfs /tmp on full disk, as earlier
