Misc Kernel Topics

Registered by Leann Ogasawara on 2013-08-19

This is a general Ubuntu kernel catch all session. Topics include:

 * v3.11 official announcement
 * v3.11 delta review
  * https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam/Specs/SaucyKernelDeltaReview
 * v3.11 config review
  * Any config requests from the audience?
 * Ubuntu touch kernels
  * https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-goldfish
 * 12.04.3 post mortem
  * [ogasawara] while I like the fact that we froze the kernel in time (ie ~4weeks prior to the point release) for a final SRU cadence, I think we need even more time, ie 6 weeks. It's clear we slipped regressions out the door which ultimately landed in the point release. We really only gave ourselves a week of the kernel being out in the wild before releasing the point release. It would be better I think to give ourselves at least 3 weeks in the event we do have regressions we still have time to respin and land fixes.
 * [bjf/infinity] Moving QA/Cert SRU testing to week 2 of the cadence
 * [ogasawara] http://reports.qa.ubuntu.com/sru/ -> seeing some QRT failures for v3.11
