Weekly status for the week of the 10th to the 16th of December.
We’ve then been busy updating packages and pushing those two releases everywhere as well as handling a few bug reports by early adopters.
Other than keeping up with bug reports, we’re also still busy reworking the internals of LXD storage, getting ready for a 1.0 release of dqlite and actively working on a number of kernel patchsets.
On the conference front, we’ve closed the FOSDEM CFP on Friday and are busy reviewing the very many submissions we’ve received. A full schedule should be published by the end of the week.
