Weekly status #70

Weekly status for the week of the 15th to the 21st of October.


Following the release of LXD 3.6 last week, this week was focused on rolling it out to our users, fixing a number of issue along the way, mostly around the newly introduced project feature.

Work has also continued towards getting incremental container copies with a pull request now being open for review.

On the LXC side, more hardening was added to the codebase and a number of bugfixes landed.
