== What was done engineering wise? ==

 * Moved the remaining three "talk to"/"test" kind of work items to final milestone.
 * Several ubuntu-defaults-builder fixes, it actually works again for precise images now.
 * Analyze and fix lucid->precise upgrade failures. The remaining big one is Bug:916291, which we try to get built for four days now.
 * Land Unity 5.8 and GNOME 3.4.0 final, through precise-proposed. This staging worked really well, we had zero secons of precise archive breakage this time.
 * Tweak/fix some issues in accessibility profiles; Luke started a discussion on disabling the HUD as it is not accessible yet, but this got discarded.
 * New -fglrx uploaded. Should fix a lot of the bugs we've had reported.

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

Nothing planned.

== Dependencies on other teams, blocking items ==
