=== What was done engineering wise? ===

Some highlights of the progress this week:

- Bootspeed testing is being reworked and the new version of the tests
will be running with UTAH soon (end of next week). The testing will be
more reliable and we will work on better reporting once the data is on a
database next week.
- We've outlined a roadmap for the QA Dashboard and added more details
to the UTAH one.
- We are on track to start substituting existing iso testing jobs (ready
for server, getting ready for desktop) with the equivalent UTAH jobs. We
won't switch probably until UDS but we are making good progress
- We've learnt about Autopilot and will be looking into using it for
some of our own testing next cycle in conjunction with UTAH.
- We have ARM hardware set up in the lab, and we are ready to start
deploying ARM jenkins jobs when we go back.
- Jean-Baptiste has been transferring some of his current workload to
other members of the team, so that he can start working on some upstream
testing. So expect to be redirected to someone else when you ping him on
certain topics. For instance, I will be attending the release meeting
for a while and babyface and psivaa will be communicating Jenkins
failures and following up with the release team on daily basis.
- Added more HW to the lab.

=== What's about to land that might impact the other teams and release
as a whole? ===

Refurbished and new fully functional bootspeed testing jobs about to
land. Existing report for the time being:

=== Summary of bugs working on by team (reasonably reliable) ===


=== Dependencies on other teams to make deliverables, blocking items,
release wide concerns? ===

None apart from the known issue of builds taking too long and making the
testing cycle at milestones slow.

=== Team Status ===
