Ubuntu SRUs: autopkgtest regression handling, MRE distro changes warning

Hello everyone,

Sending out this e-mail on behalf of the Ubuntu SRU team to give some
information regarding two SRU policies: clearing out some confusion
regarding autopkgtest regressions and a heads up about
distro-affecting changes in MRE-covered uploads.

It's mostly relevant only to those of you that have upload rights and
prepare SRUs on daily basis.

1. Autopkgtest Regression Handling

As most of you know (at least those that uploaded SRUs to stable
series), most SRU uploads trigger autopkgtests the same way as it
happens for uploads to the devel series.

Bionic Beaver (18.04) Final Beta Freeze

In some short while bionic will enter the final beta freeze, with a
goal of releasing the Final Beta images hopefully sometime late
Thursday. The link to the milestone can be found here:
<a href="" title=""></a>

The queue freeze will last from now until final release this month,
which means that all seeded packages will now need a spot-check and
review in the queue from a release team member before they are let
into the archive.

As with the previous releases, we have a bot in place that will accept
uploads that are unseeded and don't affect images.

Bionic Beaver User Interface Freeze and nearing Final Beta reminder

This is a gentle reminder that Bionic Beaver (18.04) is in User
Interface Freeze since last week (March 22th). Remember about that
when uploading packages into the archive as any freeze-breaking
changes per <a href="" title=""></a> need to have
an ubuntu-release approved exception [1].

Also, since Final Beta is planned for next week already, remember
about the nearing Beta Freeze on Monday. If you still have any high
impact changes pending for 18.04, now is the time to upload.

Announce: Stable Release Update verification policy change

Hello everyone,

As part of our continuing improvements to the SRU process, we have
decided to require verification-done-RELEASE and
verification-failed-RELEASE tags for bug validation instead of their
broad versions (i.e. verification-done, verification-failed). This
means that for a bug to be considered validated, testers need to tag
the bug with a verification-done-RELEASE tag where RELEASE is the
stable release name of the upload you have been testing.

ATTENTION! CI Train spreadsheet broken, workaround migration to a new one!

Attention CI Train landers!

Even though Robert is actively working on the spreadsheet replacement to
(hopefully) get us rid of all the various Google Spreadsheet incidents
in the CI Train, currently this is still something that requires time to
finalize. As you all know the spreadsheet once again went into a broken
state yesterday which caused a lot of grief for all its users and

After wasting some time trying to get it back into a working state, I
have decided that it makes no sense to continue trying to revive it or
waiting for Google problems resolving itself.

Ubuntu Touch Vivid stabilization period - kind request/proposition to developers

Hello Ubuntu Developers!

Those of you that follow the developments of Ubuntu Touch probably
already know, but all development teams are working hard on bringing
vivid up to the quality we have in ubuntu-rtm derived-distribution. To
achieve this we have introduced the same QA sign-off rules for vivid CI
Train silos as we had for ubuntu-rtm.

The QA sign-off [1] rules mean that every landing typical for touch
needs to be additionally signed off by the QA team for potential
