== What was done engineering wise? ==

We've rebased to the latest v3.2.2 upstream stable kernel and intend to
upload by EOD Friday to make the Alpha-2 milestone freeze deadline.
This upload will also include a fix for the armel omap boot failure
regression which was recently reported (LP:921934).  Additionally, we've
also backported and applied and an updated upstream jack detection patch
set which is landing in v3.3.

We have a large number of work items targeted for the Alpha2 release, of
which 92% (152/165) are completed.  The remaining items are not release
critical and will likely be moved out to Beta-1.

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

As noted above, we've rebased to upstream v3.2.2 and would appreciate
any testing once it lands in the archive.  We'd also appreciate testing
of the new jack detection patches.  Please refer to the following wiki
for more information.
