Ok, after a few rounds of testing, issues with ci.linaro.org and
Launchpad, I'm finally able to publish the current status of the RC
images, and the respin requests for tomorrow.

RC Images that worked as expected, without needing extra fixes:
- Ubuntu Desktop:
- Nano: http://snapshots.linaro.org/oneiric/linaro-o-nano/20120327/1/images/tar/
(1 as 0 didn't build due archive instabilities)
- Alip: http://snapshots.linaro.org/oneiric/linaro-o-alip/20120327/0/images/tar/
- Developer: http://snapshots.linaro.org/oneiric/linaro-o-developer/20120327/1/images/tar/
(1 as 0 didn't build due archive instabilities)

RC Hwpacks that also worked as expected, without needing extra fixes:
- 3.3 LT Snowball:
- 3.3 LT Vexpress A9:
- 3.3 Linux Linaro Pandaboard:
- 3.3 Linux Linaro Pandaboard X11 Base:

RC Hwpacks that weren't tested yet:
- 3.1 Linux Linaro EfikaMX:
- 3.1 Linux Linaro iMX51:
- 3.1 LT MX5: http://snapshots.linaro.org/oneiric/lt-mx5-oneiric/20120327/1/images/hwpack/
- 3.3 Linux Linaro Igep:
- 3.3 Linux Linaro Overo:

RC Hwpacks currently broken without a solution yet:
- 3.3 Linux Linaro Vexpress A9:
- 3.3 Linux Linaro Beagleboard (John Rigby is still debugging):

Respin request for images:
- LinaroTV-XBMC:
  - Reason: Fixes at the XBMC package, update to the final 11 Eden release.

Respin requests for hwpacks:
- 3.2 LT MX6: http://snapshots.linaro.org/oneiric/lt-mx6-oneiric/20120329/1/images/hwpack/
  - Reason: Fixes to improve the booting experience, but still not yet
fixing it completely :-(
- 3.1 LT Pandaboard:
  - http://snapshots.linaro.org/oneiric/lt-panda-oneiric/20120329/0/images/hwpack/
  - http://snapshots.linaro.org/oneiric/lt-panda-x11-base-oneiric/20120329/0/images/hwpack/
  - Reason: Kernel updates, config updates and working hw video decoding again.
