with the Maverick cycle kicking off and UDS-M just behind
us, it's time to take a look at what's in store for the next
release of Ubuntu Server. In broad strokes, these will be
the likely topics:

  * Better integration with Upstart
  * Further improvements to Mail & Cluster stack
  * Adopt Ceph & GlusterFS, MongoDB, Drizzle & Cassandra
  * Ease deployments & loadbalancing in the cloud
  * For UEC: enabling kernel upgrades, virtio support,
    new admin UI, easier developer deployment, cloud on
    a stick and lots more testing
  * Adopt & improve the following Java stacks: Tomcat,
    Ehcache, Hibernate, Hadoop and Pig

Like last iteration, we'll be reviewing and accepting blueprints
proposed for Maverick[1] on a per milestone basis[2]. This week,
we'll review the work for Alpha2 and you'll be able to track the
progress on the work item tracker[3].

If you'd like to contribute to the Maverick release, please join
us at our weekly IRC meetings[4] on Tuesdays between 1800 and 1900
UTC on #ubuntu-meeting on irc.freenode.net. We could especially use
your help in the papercuts project[5] and bug triaging[6]!
