Status of last weeks goals:

Last call for edits and final sign off needed from management and
3 - Finalize blurb used to promote the release and start sending it out
to internal lists. Write more generally usable Release message.
GS - Not done. Last weeks blurb is the current best version.
4 - Update deployments page and releases page.
GS - Partially done. Deployments page
(http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Deployments) updated with the XOs
"delivered, shipped, and ordered". Status section needs more updating
and timeline needs editing/bug fixing. No changes to Releases page
(http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Releases) this week.
5 - Post more detailed 8.2.1 page and restructure 9.1 page.
GS - Partially done. Some minor edits to 9.1 page. 8.2.1 page removed
and link to unscheduled release process page left. If/when we hear a
specific blocking issue for a deployment we will start filling it out again.
Goals for next week:
1 - Get sign off and incorporate final edits on 8.2 release notes.
2 - Write 8.2 availability announcement e-mail. Update wiki home page to
link to 8.2. Should be in place for posting on or before Monday 10/13.

planning in person 9.1 conference.
