2.6.35 final was released over the weekend. As a result we did a last minute rebase and upload for Maverick, ie 2.6.35-14.19. This is what will be included in the Alpha3 images. Please test. Alpha 3 is this Thurs Aug 5th. We are still above our Alpha 3 burn down chart's trend line. If you still have open Alpha 3 work items that will not be completed by EOD tomorrow, push the item(s) out to -beta or mark it POSTPONED if it appears it won't be completed this cycle.

Incoming Bugs: Bug day report

The Bug Day for this week was cancelled due to sickness on my part over the last week. It was not announced, so I opted not to have it. I will send out a notice for the Bug Day for next week today. We will be focused on bugs that have been incorrectly set to the New state as well as removing duplicates on those we encounter that are not a complete hardware match. A secondary focus will be on tagging them with the relevant subsystem. We will continue to have the Team Bug Day to address the Top 50 list as half days on Friday and Monday, as these seem to be working out very well. Reviewers, please take a look at your needs-review lists and help us keep the process moving.

Open Discussion or Questions

  • A 'Triage Status' agenda item will be added to the regular meeting agenda. This time will be spent recognizing triagers and discuss triage issues.
