=== What was done engineering wise? ===
We uploaded the 3.5.0-17.26 and 3.5.0-18.27 kernels leading up to Kernel
Freeze this week.  These uploads most notably contain a rebase to 
upstream stable v3.5.5, updated Highbank patches, additional Haswell 
graphics support patches, packaging updates for signed kernels, misc bug 
fixes, and minor config updates.  With Kernel Freeze now in effect, only 
patches which adhere to the SRU policy will be applied.  Additionally, 
only critical bug fixes will warrant an upload at this time as we 
approach our final release.

As usual, we intend to land these kernel in the 
ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/q-lts-backport PPA to facilitate testing of the 12.10  
kernel in 12.04.  Please test and let us know your results.

=== What's about to land that might impact the other teams and release as a whole? ===
