Key Status/Updates:

*	2.7.1 rc1 is in QA
*	Emails about the mailing list transition are being prepared and we
now have a plan to move forward. The list addresses will need to change,
archive URLs should remain available.
*	We have a new "newcomer" bug category which are bugs suited to
someone new to the project. These can be seen here:
*	There is a discussion on the mailing list about reproducibility in
the project, please respond there if you have opinions.
*	The autobuilder is continuing to see NFS glitches, we know how to
unblock them but aren't sure of the cause at present.
*	There is a performance issue with the autobuilder UI we've been
debugging where build cancellation in particular locks the controller up for
several minutes. Switching the database backend from sqlite to mysql after
advice from upstream unfortunately didn't help. The switch has helped some
other UI responsiveness though.
*	There is a recurring pigz threads problem occuring in builds. There
is a patch in -next to try and get more debug, the problem has never
occurred with the patch applied. Its unclear if pigz 2.4 has a fix as the
failures only occurred with 2.3.3 (from the host). There are no obvious
differences in the area of the code where the errors occurs between the
*	There has been a significant change in behaviour in do_package and
handling of pkgdata which should result in better deterministic build and
improve build performance. 
*	We have hopefully now tracked down and resolved the various syslog
restart races and automated testing failures
