Follow up (as requested my Miles):
* General documentation for people getting started in Ubuntu
* Graham finished the SRU  uploads for the CUDA stack in quantal [1, 2].
These were prepared beforehand, but I hadn't got around to reviewing
them before the jam.
* Raoul, Grant, and I had a look through the packages that are failing
to build in raring, but didn't see any obviously easy ones to fix.
The list from the most recent archive rebuild  is littered with
multi-arch python fallout, which has been fixed 
* We then reviewed the RC bug fixes from Debian .
I cleaned up a bunch of spam on that page
We reviewed the bugs for accessodf, elilo, hamster-applet, imswitch,
rawstudio and found that they didn't affect Ubuntu.
The clang bug seems to affect Ubuntu but was far too complex for our
The ncpfs bug affects Ubuntu. It's already been synced  but isn't
installable in Ubuntu  because it depends on a newer initscripts
The libticonv bug affects Ubuntu, but the libticonv package in Ubuntu
has a totally different ancestry to the Debian package. It should
probably be merged but that'd be a non-trivial job.
* Reviewing Debian RC bug #700315  for rawstudio pointed us to
flickcurl 1.23-1 which we synced  from Debian experimental, to fix
Debian bug #700050 .
* I updated my build failure report for precise , for Graham, to see what
other CUDA related things hadn't built yet.
* Julian Taylor (a MOTU who happened to be around on IRC, during our
jam) suggested that Graham look at SRUing bug 1113356 . Graham
prepared a patch, which Julian sponsored for him.
* We were about to start writing some autopkgtests  for some of my
packages in Debian, but decided we were hungry, and went to Hudsons
for beer, burgers, and coffee.
Thanks, Graham, Grant, Raoul, and Maia!
