=== Status: Trusty Development Kernel ===
The master branch for trusty has been rebased to the latest v3.12.2
upstream stable kernel. We also continue to track the latest v3.13
kernel on our unstable branch and most recently rebased to v3.13-rc2.
Again, we shall switch our master branch from tracking v3.12 to v3.13
once we cycle through the initial -rc's and feel it is stable enough for
wider consumtion, ie uploaded to the archive.
