Whiteboard

[jamiebennett 2010-06-01: A single kernel version will be required if we are to have fulfill our goal of having a single kernel source tree to build all our ARM kernels from.
[asac 22 Jun 10]: we are past feature definition freeze and this spec is still in state drafting; however, it seems to have quite an extensive wiki spec and also some work items? Am I right to assume this is ready for review? Also, I retargetted the first few work items for maverick-alpha-3; if that was wrong please fix and check that the overall milestone chosen by me is ok. Thanks!

Status:
Kernel tree stabilized for 10.11. Not merged into main Ubuntu kernel tree but security patches have been cherry-picked.

Work Items (maverick-alpha-3):
identify feature trees that should be targeted for initial inclusion in 10.11: DONE
identify owners for these trees: DONE
[npitre] create initial merge tree: DONE
[jcrigby] create Ubuntu packaging branches for each subarchitecture that will be published as a source package to a daily PPA: DONE
[jcrigby] publish kernel source packages from the merge of the merge tree and the Ubuntu packaging branches: DONE

Work items for ubuntu-10.10-beta:
[npitre] finalize the merge tree, minus the Ubuntu kernel source, for inclusion in the Ubuntu kernel repo: DONE
merge finalized merge tree into the Ubuntu kernel tree: POSTPONED
