Achievements of the Infrastructure team during Connect Q1 2012.

  • Offspring LAVA integration (will happen on Friday)
  • We have added a lot of cool features to the backlog for
  • We have decided on improvements for pre-download EULA handling to make it more robust so that we are able to display the EULA when and only when it is required to do so when images are downloaded.

  • Decided on the workflow and interface to Android build configuration version tracking.
