ubuntu-phone: Landing team 11.06.15

Filed under
Ubuntu

Hello everyone,

Busy day today. The final OTA-4 candidate is almost ready. We built 2
snapshot-images today - first one didn't include one fix due to a
missing package copy, second one with everything ready is now being
tested by QA. All in all, once OTA tests are finished, we'll hand it
over to BQ and release. Hopefully the final OTA-4 release should happen
on Monday. But thanks to all of that we included another MMS related fix
to the whole batch.

Cheers!

This low-end hardware ensured one thing--the major markets would completely ignore the platforms.
