I blogged a couple of weeks ago about the addition of the key performance indicators to the Ubuntu QA Dashboard. Since that post the QA team has been hard at work. We have added a bootspeed KPI to the dashboard, giving you a quick look at today vs yesterday. Another cool feature that has been added to the dashboard is the addition of bug information. Previously the dashboard just provided a link to the bug in Launchpad. The dashboard now fetches the bug data from Launchpad and displays it for …

Recently there has been a huge push for quality in Ubuntu. The goal is to have a stable and usable daily image of the development version of Ubuntu.

Last cycle we saw quite a number of changes to the way that planning works for Ubuntu.

I have been a Google Chrome user for a while now, and I have two different ‘Users’ in Chrome. The default user is my personal account, and then I have a work account. For my personal email I use a Google Apps Gmail account and just check my email with Chrome. I use Thunderbird to check my work email.

Friday I decided to create a new OpenPGP key to migrate off of my 1024D keys to something a little more current as far as how secure it is. With this, I created a 8192R key.
