=== What was done engineering wise? ===
We've rebased the Quantal kernel to upstream v3.4 final and uploaded. 
This upload also collapses the -virtual flavor, reinstates the i386 
generic flavor, and transitions the i386 generic-pae flavor to the 
generic flavor. We've also homogenized the entire linux-meta package and 
removed the non-smp powerpc meta package as it was made obsolete in 
Precise.  We are above the trend line for our Alpha-1 burn down chart 
and I suspect a few items will be deferred to the Alpha-2 milestone.

We've also got the 12.10 kernel for 12.04 available for testing.  It can 
be installed from the following PPA:


We welcome any early adopters to please install, test, and let us know 
your feedback.

=== What's about to land that might impact the other teams and release 
as a whole? ===
We anticipate the upstream v3.5-rc1 kernel to release relatively soon.  
Being the first rc for the 3.5 series, I'd expect it to be less stable.  
We would of course appreciate any testing and feedback once it is 
uploaded and available.

=== Summary of bugs working on by team (reasonably reliable) ===
  * Bug:1003793 - broadcom wireless does not work with 
  * Bug:997774 - 12.10: Wifi is unstable, disconnect once a minute
  * Bug:1004101 - [RFE] Allow Bug Reporting When Running Backport Kernel

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