=== What was done engineering wise? ===
This week we uploaded the 3.4.0-5.11 Quantal kernel which was shipped
with the Alpha-1 release.  This upload contained some critical fixes for
the Alpha-1 release.  The upstream v3.5-rc1 Linux kernel was also
released this week and we are currently working on getting the Quantal
kernel rebased.  We have re-targeted any open Alpha-1 work items to Alpha-2.

=== What's about to land that might impact the other teams and release
as a whole? ===
We typically prefer to refrain from uploading an early -rc, eg 3.5-rc1. 
However, depending on initial testing, we may choose to do so.

=== Summary of bugs working on by team (reasonably reliable) ===
 * Bug:1003793 - broadcom wireless does not work with
 * Bug:1004101 - [RFE] Allow Bug Reporting When Running Backport Kernel
 * Bug:988447 - Move linux-headers-generic to section metapackages
 * Bug:1008749 - Missing bnx2-mips-09-6.2.1b.fw causes failed net boot
 * Bug:1009564 - Quantal Ubuntu Wubi failed to install
 * Bug:1007159 - ecryptfs test on btrfs failing on "no space left on device"
 * Bug:1005832 - Intel wifi frequent disconnects

=== Dependencies on other teams to make deliverables, blocking items,
release wide concerns? ===
None at this time.
