Meeting Agenda]]


=== ARM Status ===
Q/master: lp1176977 ("XFS instability on armhf under load") - turned
out some
xfs tests failure that i was experiencing were already present in 3.5.y
vanilla for arm, so none of the backported patches were responsible for it.
On the other hand, there's a new 100% reproducible hang while running
tests/generic/0368. Still working on it, collecting patches, pinging
upstream,
etcetc.
*/highbank: lp1182637("cpu_offlining fails to run on ARM") - according to
robherr this is due to a different u-boot that we are using, waiting for an
update.
S/master: did some testing of 3.10-rcX for omap[34], imx6 and vexpress, so
far so good.

=== Status: Saucy Development Kernel ===
Our Saucy unstable branch has been rebased to the latest v3.10-rc5
upstream kernel. We are still holding off on a v3.10 based upload due
to missing AUFS support as well as some DKMS package failures we would
like to resolve. We have however gone ahead and rebased our Saucy master
branch to the recent v3.9.5 upstream stable and plan to upload that
today.
On the mobile front I'm hearing news that the container flip should
hopefully be happening this week.
Important upcoming dates:
Thurs June 20 - Alpha 1 (opt in)
