we've just started the Alpha3 cycle for Maverick. In broad

* Several of the Java projects we are adopting are quite fast
moving. We are looking into a solution that favours ease of
discovery of new releases. If you have any thoughts on the

us know your thoughts.
* A few blueprints could really use your help! To get the best
possible bug reports, apport hooks are tremendously helpful.
If you have a few spare cycles, consider writing one or two!
Everybody loves trying new versions of software, especially

blueprint is doing exactly that and there's plenty on the

As a reminder, for those doing feature work in Ubuntu, Alpha 3 is
the last milestone before Feature Freeze, so make sure you get
your changes in before then.
If you'd like to contribute to the Maverick release, please join
us at our weekly IRC meetings on Tuesdays between 1800 and 1900
UTC on #ubuntu-meeting on irc.freenode.net.
