The Kernel Team is completely focused on addressing any Spectre and
Meltdown issues as they arise.  A secure Ubuntu is our top priority. No
new Livepatches are being produced and our regular SRU cycles are
suspended while we address Spectre and Meltdown.

post have been promoted to the updates repository:
