Karmic Release Status: Milestoned Features (ogasawara)


Blueprints: kernel-karmic-hwdb-workshop (ogasawara)

Nothing new to add for this

Blueprints: kernel-karmic-new-kernel-on-lts (rtg)

Some more progress since last week. It's been tsted on a number of server boxes but rtg may rework the build before uploading. Its seems as ready as it ever will, though the AppArmor user space application updated. AppArmour has been discussed with kees - such as change is SRU'able. As for 10.04, AppArmour will be updated wholesale, it needs further discussion at the forthcoming Sprint as userspace needs updating. For non-Desktop's it's all fine.

Blueprints: kernel-karmic-review-of-non-upstreamed-code (smb)

Page updated on the sprint but since then no change. But nearly done.

Blueprints: kernel-karmic-android (coolney)

Android is off the table for 9.10, since we have turned on Binder that should work for anyone wanting to try it

Blueprints: kernel-karmic-suspend-resume (manjo)

Manoj travelling today, no report back.

Other Release Tasks: AppArmour (jjohansen)

LP#359338: ecryptfs, is work-in-progress. Part 1 should be done today. Part 2, 3 probably won't make Karmic. This will take the the sting out of the bug for both ecryptfs and aufs usage. Also fixed several other bugs that security team have brought up.

Other Release Tasks: ARM-Freescale (amitk, bjf)

rtg is rebasing fsl-imx51 against 2.6.31-rc6 along with new debian build infrastructure. bjf has reapplied all FSL patches (including the latest ER9-SP) on Jaunty and issued a pull request. Also applied the latest 9 patches from the Marvell tree to the Karmic tree and issued a pull request. Will be reviewing the dove config next. amitk has been testing the initial imx51 builds and fixing the ethernet driver for the babbage board.

Other Release Tasks: Karmic General Status (rtg, apw)

rtg was mainly focused on arm this past week. Most of the development effort is in supporting the new arm branches in the main tree.
