LDS Session Notes

Ubuntu LEB Process:
- Kernel, see if we need to add sauce on it
- Apparmor should stay
- But we should be able to turn most of the things off

Out of the cycle hwpack update:
Board rating:
- Once we have build releases
- Weekly should be enough (for weekly builds)
- Using with montly releases

Kernel update:
- Agree with working groups
- Should have one week for testing
- Report back to the landing team to get the bugs fixes
- Check if the validation tree is actually planning to test kernel daily

WG:
- see when they are planning to release stuff
- to check with our images

Agile:
Communication:
Testing, Validation:
- Going with daily images or weekly releases
