Update 2017week10: kernel maintenance / kernel testing

Agustin Benito Bethencourt <agustin.benito@...>

Dear CIP friends,

as you know we released the beta version of Board at desk - Single dev on Feb 22nd a little before the CIP at ELC. It was announced through this mailing list.

That day we also communicated the first draft of the kernel maintenance policies Ben H. published on our wiki[1]. The policies are an extension from the current Linux kernel ones, having our use case in mind.

Check Yoshi's slides[2] from ELC

Christos Karamitsos has been of a great help in order to solve some technical issues during the past few weeks, working full time to help Don Brown to solve them. Thanks Christos. Robert Marshall is back in the team to focus the coming weeks in preparing the 1.0 release, substituting Christos. Welcome back again Robert.

Ben H. will be helping us in shaping the VM for his needs as kernel maintainer the coming days. He is coming to our HQ in Manchester, UK for this purpose.

Based on the feedback received after the beta release, we have added some features requests in our ticket system[3]. I will be processing them this week.

After FOSDEM, OS Leadership Summit and ELC, including the beta release, we will go back this Friday to our bi-weekly report about the technical activities related with kernel maintenance and testing.
