=== What was done engineering wise? ===
We uploaded the 3.5.0-14.16 Quantal kernel.  This upload contained
updates for the mei driver, resolves misc touchpad regressions, and
included misc bug fixes for the apple-gmux driver.  As usual, we
uploaded this kernel to 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? ===
Nothing at this time.
