(I'll be attending tomorrow's meeting for both the Edubuntu team and
the Foundations team)


== What was done engineering wise? ==

 * Crash database
  - Quite a lot of work happening on whoopsie currently.
  - Now promoted to main and installed by default
  - Work continues on getting the backend ready

 * Installer
  - Uploaded a new ubiquity fixing quite a few bugs.
  - New ubiquity slideshow uploaded.
  - Some more ubiquity fixes currently in trunk and that will be
uploaded for beta-1.

 * Networking
  - ISC DHCP 4.1-ESV-R4 has been uploaded, containing a lot of fixes
and bringing us on the latest upstream Extended Supported Version.
  - netcfg and resolvconf has been updated fixing most of the current
DNS related installation and upgrade bugs.

 * Toolchain
  - New openjdk-7 build in Precise
  - Updated openjdk-6
  - Some eglibc fixes (gdm restart, ARM dbg package, reboot required)
  - Looking into some gcc-4.6 issues
  - python2.7 and python3.2 merges for FF
  - Fixed gcc-4.7 bootstrap failures on ARM

 * Upstart
  - It nows builds fine on armel, armhf and powerpc!
  - Working on a fix for bug 935585
  - Some more work on cleaning up upstart for 12.04

 * Other
  - New upstream release of qemu-linaro uploaded; now usable as a
buildd on a hardy kernel.
  - Uploaded cmake to let more packages in precise/main be
  - Work continues on the TPM front, with a few fixes coming up.
  - friendly-recovery now has a new 'system summary' option the should
be useful to get an overview of the system when something goes wrong.
  - udev has been updated to better work in containers (avoiding a
flood of event when a container boots)

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

=== Release Notes ===

 * The recovery menu in 12.04 now features a "system summary" option
that should make it easier for a user to debug what went wrong on
their system. (This entry should be merged with the previous one)

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

 * Most friendly-recovery bugs have now been fixed
 * Installer bugs are now the biggest focus

== Dependencies on other teams, blocking items ==

None that I'm aware of, besides the issue listed below.

== Issues? ==
 * https://bugs.launchpad.net/+bug/926859
   Compiz 3D using llvmpipe is using a lot of CPU for rendering, not
to mention glitches.
   The test should really be updated to not use the 3D version of
Unity on llvmpipe. Even if llvmpipe was working for Unity 3D, it'd
still be using much more CPU not to mention wasting a lot of bandwidth
when used with thin clients.
