Ubuntu Touch Porting Updates


Hello everybody,

here's a quick update on the touch porting front.

The container flip was announced a few days ago [1] and work is under
way to update the porting guide to reflect the new reality.

Apart from that Sergio is working on bug 1201811 which should put us
into a situation to flash other devices than the 4 currently listed.

If you, as a port maintainer, make sure the following two requirements
are met

 - downloadable without user interaction (wget/curl)
 - flashable with recovery without manual interaction

we should be able to make it easier for users of the device to stay up
to date and flash their devices more easily. Please update the wiki page
of your port to reflect any changes you're making

If you have any questions or suggestions, bring them up here.

Have a great day,
