== What was done engineering wise? ==

This past week the Ubuntu kernel team uploaded the 3.2.0-8.15 kernel.
This primarily consists of multiple config changes.

The Canonical kernel team has been sprinting in Budapest this week.  The
primary focus has been work item completion which has included an
extensive config review, future kernel maintenance and development
discussions, and cross team pollination amongst the other distro teams.

We have a large number of work items targeted for the Alpha2 release, of
which 91% (150/165) are completed.  Many of these were closed this week.

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

As noted above, we uploaded the 3.2.0-8.15 kernel containing multiple
config changes.  Please let us know of any issues which you encounter.

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