Team Highlights

    • 12.02 : the integration with LAVA was not possible since there are still no LEB images produced - new target is 12.03. There is a risk that this move will affect the completion of benchmarks for ARMHF - pushing it for completion to 12.04
    • Debian archive is now at 92% (dropped slightly over the past weeks due to transitioning of many packages). Details over the progress in the archive armhf porting can be visualised at

      • The biggest issues in Debian archive in the past week have been
        • out of memory errors in the builders for debian (perhaps something wrong with chromium or gcc)
        • haskell is the main component transitioning now (following massive ghc uploads, in early February), lots of dependencies on haskell-devscripts
        • libreoffice
    • Ubuntu: Apart from the dependencies mentioned for Debian, there was also qt-webkit failing lately (also failing on armel builds for Precise)
  • big.LITTLE followup: Loic has been pushing to get all the documents to

  • Friends of OCTO mailing list established (
