  • GRUB 2:
    • Merged Debian work from the tail-end of last week, with some additional fixes for bugs reported over the weekend.
    • Fixed regression when installing to a partition.
    • Yet more documentation work.
    • Worked on foundations-m-grub2-boot-framebuffer, fixing an ordering bug that broke GRUB_BACKGROUND handling, working with Andy to figure out how to avoid screen-clears, and spending a lot of time testing. At Matthew Garrett's suggestion, I wrote a simple linearfb kernel module, awaiting his review.
    • Fixed an obscure directory corruption bug when reading from reiserfs.
    • Fix grub-installer to resolve symlinks in default boot device (602758).

  • Support building debian-installer with new apt mirror: method.
  • Some 10.04.1 preparation.
  • Fixed cyrus-sasl2 (600180) and ppp (600947) build failures.

  • Stop sshd on shutdown, since Upstart won't do it for us now that it's a native job (603363).

  • Reviewed gparted patches from Surbhi.
  • Merged: initramfs-tools (twice), busybox, suitesparse (fixing build failure, 601008), manpages-de, loadlin
