== What was done engineering wise? ==

 * Finished the new extensive pre-release testing for Unity, packages landing today. This showed that the manual testing is useful and comprehensive (we found some minor regressions) and rises our confidence in the new version.
 * dnsmasq server fixes landed (part of the IPv6 robustification).
 * Power usage improvements: Integrated Colin King's pm-utils script changes, fixed unnecessary wakeups in network-manager, debugged unnecessary wakeups in notify-osd, triaged/debugged some other power issues.
 * Libreoffice 3.5 beta 2 landed in precise, but currently causes archive uninstallability due to missing -l10n packages. Sorting this out ASAP.
 * Went through our work items, adjusted some priorities, and deferred/dropped a few. Closer to the trend line now, and enough fodder for dropping if necessary.

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

 * Nothing planned right now.

== Dependencies on other teams, blocking items ==

 * Help from Kubuntu team to move soprano-daemon to unixodbc would be greatly appreciated. (Bug:901638)

== Desktop Release Notes ==

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopTeam/ReleaseStatus#relnotes has the
complete cumulative release notes for precise. Changes since last week:

 * LibreOffice has been updated to 3.5 beta 2. Please report any regressions that you notice.

== Alpha-2 targetted bugs ==
 * Bug:790240 ''[at-spi needs demotion for precise]'': We need to flip openjdk-6/7 to the new at-spi2 adapter, blocker here is just to test whether this actually works. Once that's done, we can move the dependency and demote the rest.
 * Bug:850264 ''[given a foreign architecture of i386 on amd64 machine, and an outdated libc, apt tries to remove libc-bin]'': Fixed in bzr, Michael Vogt wants to address some more issues before uploading.
