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

  * Upstart:
   * Busy working on a fix for bug 922754.
   * Merged branch from Serge and Stéphane making our console upstart 
jobs container-aware, also providing a new running-in-container command 
(returns 0 if in a container and prints technology name, otherwise 
returns 1) and two new events "container" and "not-container" for use in 
upstart jobs.

  * Crash database:
   * Uploaded version 0.1.5.
   * Continued work on the preference dialog.
   * Related apport work.

  * Installer
   * New Wubi uploaded for 10.04.4.

  * Networking
   * Daily debian-installer tests of IPv6 are now being run, just need 
to make the results public.
   * Fixed a few bugs in netcfg, related to resolvconf (netinstall 
failing) and IPv6.

  * Containers
   * Thanks to the upstart changes, it's now possible to run a stock 
Ubuntu system in a container, without any change in package or 
configuration. The lxcguest package has now been removed.

  * Toolchain
   * eglibc 2.15 has been uploaded yesterday causing some sound issues 
and upgrade issues for nvidia users. Both of which were fixed today.

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

Nothing that I'm aware of at this point.

=== Release Notes ===

  * Upstart in Ubuntu 12.04 will now detect that it's running in a 
container and will trigger the appropriate consoles based on the 
container technology. LXC is best supported, though OpenVZ and Vserver 
are also detected.

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

Based from our team meeting notes and some grepping of Launchpad:
  - Launchpad bug 922754 in upstart "booting without --no-log causes 
init and plymouth-upstart-bridge to spin at 100%" [High,Fix committed] 
  - Launchpad bug 923685 in resolvconf: "New resolver package overwrites 
manually created resolv.conf on server" [Critical, Triaged] 
  - Launchpad bug 929384 in eglibc: "nvidia drivers broken by the recent 
libc update on i386 arch" [High, Fix released]
  - Launchpad bug 876298 in update-manager: "[MASTER] We need to better 
handle external payloads (Flash, msttcorefonts) not being available." 
[High, Triaged]
  - Launchpad bug 876626 in upstart: "Unlocking the second crypto disk 
(/home) echos password on console" [High, Confirmed]
  - Launchpad bug 926468 in upstart: "Stopping ssh with a logged in user 
causes init to spin at 100%" [High, Triaged]

Probably more, sorry couldn't get a very accurate list.
I expect a more accurate bug list after Feature Freeze.

=== Dependencies on other teams, blocking items? ===

  * The crash database client is blocked on MIR bug 913694.

=== Issues? ===

None for now.
