== What was done engineering wise? ==
 * Our efforts with fixing upgrade issues finally came to fruition -- all upgrade tests succeed now, including lucid → precise with thousands of universe packages. (Modulo a few conffile issues and crash reports)
 * Discussed new autopkgtest Jenkins integration with Colin and Jean-Baptiste, and fixed a few tests.
 * Fixed the annoying bugs in OneConf and got it in shape for precise.
 * Lots of bug and crash fixes all over the place. We were watching the retracer logs and made a list with the highest dupes, and working from that.
 * Unity 5.10 is being landed; apparently there is some trouble on ARM due to the recent compiz upload, currently being sorted out.
 * An epic battle in gtk and gnome-control-center for making the alt key configurable is now at the end. The gnome-control-center part will be published as soon as the new unity-2d will enter the archive (to avoid segfault on unavailable gsettings key).
 * Dailies once again got oversized until yesterday. Investigated the causes and trimmed some stuff. Today's images should already be okay, but we have another 600 kB saving committed to LibO.

== 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 into the LTS.

== Dependencies on other teams, blocking items ==


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

under investigation:
 * Bug:870297 ''[lightdm logins not being logged in wtmp]'': Still not reproducible. Dropped ubuntu-12.04 milestone, this is SRUable.

triaged/in progress:
 * Bug:872701 ''[Keyboard layout doesn't change in screensaver lock dialog]'': No progress this week. Fine for an SRU.
 * Bug:932598 ''[Full hard drive causes xorg and lightdm to fail to load]'': Fixed mountall to create tmpfs /tmp on foll disk, as earlier Ubuntu releases used to do. lightdm still needs a fix.

Fixed since last report:
 * Bug:844044 ''[Unity Greeter - Add Network Login option]''

== Release Notes ==

Nothing new.
