Weekly status #80

Weekly status for the weeks of the 7th to the 13th of January.


This past week we released LXD 3.9, updated the LXD snap accordingly and been going through bug reports from the holiday period.

Half of the LXD team then headed down to South Africa for a week of planning meetings, making this a pretty quiet week for us as far as upstream work.

We did still manage to finish porting our CentOS images over to distrobuilder. We’ll be looking at ArchLinux and Sabayon for the next round of conversions to distrobuilder.
