Weekly status #86

Weekly status for the weeks of the 18th to the 24th of February.


This past week was pretty quiet with us focusing on longer term features and refactoring that didn’t lead to significant changes getting merged.

We did some more work on codebase hardening both in LXC and LXD and fixed a number of smaller bugs here and there. Also prepared a new LXC bugfix release for the 2.0 branch.

On the distrobuilder side, this week we’ve switched Fedora over to it, leaving us with just Oracle Linux, OpenSUSE, Plamo and Ubuntu Core to switch from our legacy template scripts. All of those unfortunately require some amount of work in distrobuilder itself so it will be a few weeks/months before we complete the transition.
