Status: Maverick

As mentioned last week, we've been queuing patches for Maverick SRU which includes the latest,, and stable updates.

We are also planning a 0-day kernel upload which has been documented at bug 647071 . I'm not aware of any kitten killer bugs for Maverick which would cause a last minute upload. Obviously let us know if we've overlooked/missed anything.

Incoming Bugs: Bug day report

The Bug Day is today, so I don't have much information other than that. The next Bug Day will be Tuesday 19 October. The focus will be on bugs with patches. We will be working to identify those bugs that have actual, relevant patches.

More details to follow on the wiki.

We will continue to have the Team Bug Day to address the Top 50 list as half days on Friday and Monday. Reviewers, please take a look at your needs-review lists and help us keep the process moving. There are several lists that are not getting a look. Please also take ownership of your bugs as you work them so we can get them fixed or otherwise off the list. There are a number in need of love. There are several subsystems owned by all that need to be reviewed for inclusion in our top 50 list.

Triage Status

There has been an increase in people interested in working on triaging bugs. There are a number of folks working today on the Bug Day that have helped us triage bugs in the past, but have not been active on BugDays. Marjo blogged my Bug Day e-mail and I blogged about it on the qa.ubuntu.com blog. I'll do that for each bug day we have going forward and will keep track of the growth in interest as a result.

Open Discussion or Questions: Raise your hand to be recognized

This will be the last meeting of the Maverick development cycle. The next meeting will be November 9th.
