Lucid Release Status: Bugs with patches attached

In collaboration with the community team, it was thought that bugs with patches attached would be a good target for issues which we could likely fix quickly and therefore close. It was requested we add this info to our weekly meeting. 119 bugs with patches http://qa.ubuntu.com/reports/ogasawara/csv-stats/bugs-with-patches/linux/

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-bug-handling (ogasawara)

Going to work on completing some of ogasawara's work items this week. For ex detect staging drivers. We will also be getting our arsenal scripts into shape and running more regularly.

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-review-of-ubuntu-delta (apw)

Nothing new to report.

Blueprints: kerne-lucid-kernel-config-review (apw)

We are going to review whether we should have all sub-systems builtin rather than as modules now that module probing is faster. As a specific example we have just pulled out bluetooth as it will shortly be included in compat-wireless.

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-kms (sconklin)

Lots of work on i915 leading to us switching i915.powersave=0 by default as we are seeing nasty twitching and blanking issues, as well as some suspend hangs.

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

Nothing new to report there

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-apparmor-development (jjohansen)

Upstream AppArmor update incoming today, just cleaning up some commit messages. The kernel side of policy optimizations is done, should have user side dfa minimization in by the end of the week. If there is time the table packing part of optimization can be done for alpha3. Fixed regression Bug #507069

Debugging dfa optimization. dfa optimization isn't tweeked yet but is giving about 40% size savings and 50% speedup.

Blueprints: kernel-lucid-boot-performance (apw, csurbhi)

We have regressed some since we gained plymouth in the initramfs. Not sure if that is its final resting place yet, need to confirm with keybuk as to plan going forward

Other Release Tasks: Lucid Audio Support (bjf)

Nothing new to report here.

Other Release Tasks: Lucid Better Power Mgt (amitk)

Nothing new to report here.

Other Release Tasks: EC2 Lucid Kernel Status (jjohansen)

jjohansen is finishing an update to EC2 toadya and will include the missing patches directory.

Status: Lucid (apw)

Be aware a bunch of work items have appeared out of the woodwork. It seems that we were losing some foreign items in the burndown charts. I will be reviewing those once the new charts are up and running correctly and will try and summarise those which appear new. We are just uploading a kernel update to which also includes a bunch of patches from the mailing list.
