1. Kernel Testing Project

Email update from Greg: I've rejected a patch to add some kernel-api checks to the scripts directory :) I'm working with someone who I hope can take the maintainership of “testing” on, still trying to work out the details with their employer at the moment.

2. Plumbers Update

Have 3 accepted MCs plus another 7 under consideration. RT workshop wants to co-locate plus have over $100k in sponsorship, so event is well on track. Ric doesn't like the process for submitting Microconferences (too much pre-population of the event). There was discussion of how onerous this is and James undertook to pass the views on to the Plumbers Committee.

3. UEFI Secure boot

4. Other UEFI Updates
