== What was done engineering wise? ==

 * Landed LibreOffice 3.5beta2 for good; caused some more CD growth due to extra dependencies, will be fixed when Bjoern gets back from vacation.
 * Landed major changes to DNS resolution for the desktop; DNS resolution will now be done through dnsmasq, which should help split-DNS VPNs and faster DNS resolution.
 * Add Nautilus quicklist support in the Unity launcher.
 * New X.org 1.11 stack prepared and being smoketested, planned to land soon now.
 * Continued work on fixing processes with too many wakeups (power consumption).
 * Wrote scripts to test popular user configuration settings migration in a Lucid → Precise upgrade. Being integrated into Jenkins now.

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

 * X.org server 1.11, with the input stack from 1.12

== Dependencies on other teams, blocking items ==

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

== RC bugs ==

The alpha-2 relevant are:

 * Bug:790240 ''[at-spi needs demotion for precise]'': We need to flip openjdk-6/7 to the new at-spi2 adapter; Luke is building and testing packages now, ETA next week.
 * Bug:916726 ''[Drop extra Java dependencies from 3.5.0~beta2-2ubuntu3]'': Patch identified (was accidentally dropped); not a release blocker, but causes an extra 7 MB of CD oversizedness
