Except the parser can handle one Acceptance and One Headline per Whiteboard,
only. So for the bp's that have multiple WI's blocks the Headline and the
Acceptance would change each month. ( I know, the parser should be
This is not an issue going forward, if we have a bp for each monthly
So we have to do the following:
Released updated linaro-android kernel for 11.09 and researched earlysuspend
requirements for omap3
When Linaro-Android 11.09 kernel is available.
Work items for 11.09:

The acceptance criteria is to verify that the deliverable actually made it
into the component released and function correctly. It should be a simple
check/verification, not a major test.
Release Management can use this acceptance criteria to check things out and
verify that the release actually has what is being announced.
