This section should include a paragraph describing the end-user impact of this change. It is meant to be included in the release notes of the first release in which it is implemented. (Not all of these will actually be included in the release notes, at the release manager's discretion; but writing them is a useful exercise.)

It is mandatory.
Review of the current Ubuntu Kernel patch delta from upstream. This session will look at the current delta comprised of both patches to the core and the ubuntu specific drivers. The aim is to record what we are carrying, review the reasons for that component(s) to be carried, and recommend replacements, updates, cleanups, upstreaming etc of those components.

== User stories ==

== Assumptions ==

== Design ==

You can have subsections that better describe specific parts of the issue.

== Implementation ==

This section should describe a plan of action (the "how") to implement the changes discussed. Could include subsections like:

=== UI Changes ===

Should cover changes required to the UI, or specific UI that is required to implement this

=== Code Changes ===

Code changes should include an overview of what needs to change, and in some cases even the specific details.

=== Migration ===

Include:
 * data migration, if any
 * redirects from old URLs to new ones, if any
 * how users will be pointed to the new way of doing things, if necessary.

== Test/Demo Plan ==

It's important that we are able to test new features, and demonstrate them to users. Use this section to describe a short plan that anybody can follow that demonstrates the feature is working. This can then be used during testing, and to show off after release. Please add an entry to http://testcases.qa.ubuntu.com/Coverage/NewFeatures for tracking test coverage.

This need not be added or completed until the specification is nearing beta.

== Unresolved issues ==

This should highlight any issues that should be addressed in further specifications, and not problems with the specification itself; since any specification with problems cannot be approved.
All patches and drivers carried in the Ubuntu delta are not automatically sync'd with the upstream kernel for various reasons. This places a maintenance burden on the Ubuntu kernel team. These patches and drivers must be regularly reviewed to determine if they are still needed, if they need updating to a later version, or if they are now ready for upstream acceptance. The purpose of this blueprint is to facilitate and record this review for the P cycle.

Summary

Release Note

Review of the current Ubuntu Kernel patch delta from upstream. This session will look at the current delta comprised of both patches to the core and the ubuntu specific drivers. The aim is to record what we are carrying, review the reasons for that component(s) to be carried, and recommend replacements, updates, cleanups, upstreaming etc of those components.

Rationale

All patches and drivers carried in the Ubuntu delta are not automatically sync'd with the upstream kernel for various reasons. This places a maintenance burden on the Ubuntu kernel team. These patches and drivers must be regularly reviewed to determine if they are still needed, if they need updating to a later version, or if they are now ready for upstream acceptance. The purpose of this blueprint is to facilitate and record this review for the P cycle.

BoF agenda and discussion

Use this section to take notes during the BoF; if you keep it in the approved spec, use it for summarising what was discussed and note any options that were rejected.
