Actions from this meeting

9.10 Planning Process

FYI on progress for 9.10 planning. We are hosting a series of meetings with other canonical teams, called road map meetings. Some of you may be booked into one or two of them. There are 22 altogether. This will be very good fodder for UDS.

All Hands Update

  • Everyone should have submitted at least one topic. If you haven't, please do so by March 13th (new deadline).
  • The track leads are reviewing and will let us know what topics are accepted.

Release Status

In general, it appears that X is a hot spot for us related to bugs, and that most of the critical feature work is complete.

Bugs
