Whiteboard

[rsalveti, Sep 12, 2011] Ubuntu release team already knows about this FFe, so it should be fine if the package is done properly in time.
[rsalveti, Sep 12, 2011] Would be good to get this done during this week, as next week we have oneiric beta-2.
[rsalveti, Sep 26, 2011] Ubuntu already knows and expect the changes, but still blocked until another dev reviews and sponsor the upload.
[asac, Sep 27, 2011] please post more background when setting blueprints to blocked; post bug id of review bug for oneiric for instance. please try to find a reviewer.
[fboudra, Sep 27, 2011] discussed at Ubuntu release meeting. ogra should review ljt: http://revu.ubuntuwire.com/p/libjpeg-turbo

Headline: Ubuntu Oneiric now also provides the libjpeg-turbo package, based on the Linaro 11.08/11.09 release.
Acceptance: libjpeg-turbo available at the Ubuntu Oneiric repositories, even if it's just available at universe. Due current Oneiric release schedule, not being able to push to the archive is also expected.
