[pwlars, 2011-10-25] If bugs are found, please file them and link them to the blueprint. We might have to delay adding this to the ci loop if we don't get new boards by then, but at least it will be ready to go when we get there.
[qzhang, 2011-11-15] lava-android-test item is blocked by LP: #837830, can't debug it if system crashes soon.
[qzhang, 2011-12-12] Blocked by lack of i.MX53 Ripley boards. What's more, Android can't work with an available Ethernet on ripley board for no ripley code support in Nov builds.
[qzhang, 2011-12-12] Pushed to 2012.01 seems a reasonable date.
[fboudra, 2011-12-12] Milestone target shouldn't be changed before post mortem and planning for next cycle.
[qzhang, 2011-12-13] Ripley Ethernet is fine now in my tried release today. USB can't work on Ripley but it doesn't block i.MX53 android.
[qzhang, 2011-12-19] In fact, the second WI is not done for it's unable to test for a flash crash after bootup on Android. Anyway, I'll fix the bugs we may meet in the future.
