Whiteboard

The Maverick UDS session log is at: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DesktopExperienceTeam/MaverickUDSLog#dx-m-multi-touch-and-kernel

The general goal for this release is, at the kernel level, is to maintain and extend the HW enablement that was already provided for Lucid.
 * maintain the APIs (evdev mostly) and drivers
 * add drivers for more devices (considered: stantum, new n-trig drivers, synaptic)

Reminder: will need help (Q/A support, some calls) to explore and design APIs for dev. mgt during this cycle
