== What was done engineering wise? ==
We are currently frozen for 12.04 and have made no uploads for the main 
distro kernel this week.  We did perform an upload for 
linux-ti-omap4-3.2.0-1412.16 to resolve Bug:984180.  We have pulled in 
the latest upstream stable Linux v3.2.15 patches and are queuing them as 
an SRU for Precise.  We are also queuing some bug fixes which we intend 
to release as a day-0 kernel upload.  Should we need an upload between 
now and final release, we would like to have these pending fixes 
included.  We'll address these specifically with the release team should 
the opportunity present itself.  All of our work items are now closed 
for Precise 12.04.

== What's about to land that might impact the other teams? ==
We have a day-0 kernel upload planned.  We intend to upload this to 
precise-proposed on Tues Apr 24.

== Release Notes ==

== Summary of bugs working on by team (reasonably reliable) ==
We're also keeping an eye on the following bugs.  Some of these should 
be getting resolved via the day-0 kernel or a subsequent kernel SRU.
