Release Note:

Notes from UDS session
Percona alongside MySQL in Ubuntu?
PS > 90% MySQL
PXC is 99% Percona Server + Galera
Flashcache - no widepread use.
May not be supported in Percona Server 5.6
Universe target for these packages....
Security preference is to only have one supported version....
MySQL Challenges
Some test cases are updated; but not all test cases are public.
May be possible to have a backchannel NDA discussion for this.
No policy change on identification of individual commits for security issues.
... anything percona fixes will be made public - but in the same position with regards to mysql security fixes.
No backporting of percona in the same way as mysql due to this constraint - always move forwards in terms of minor versioning.
MySQL Updates
5.6 target for 13.10 intime for 14.04 LTS release...

-- Please can the BlueprintSpec items be filled in prior to acceptance (james-page)
