Update on OS updates ... and next steps

Registered by Loïc Minier on 2013-08-19

Discuss status and WIP for OS updates, transition of existing Touch users to new OS updates, upcoming changes and longer term improvements (e.g. switching channels, progress updates, improved deltas w/ Android bits etc.)

(Other channels and number of channels partly discussed in support for saucy session)

Need to discuss version numbers as well (possible overflow with 3 images per day)
