Community team weeks 43+44 update


Hi all,

Here are some highlights of what the Ubuntu Community Team at Canonical
together with some other community members have been working on this week:

## General community
- UOS organisation and schedule announcement [1] - get your sessions in if
you haven’t! [2]
- Daniel and David represented the team at Ubucon DE. dpm gave a talk about
convergence and the phone, dholbach gave a talk with svij and ogra about
snappy and snapcraft. Both talks were popular and well received. Some
pictures [3] [4]
- UbuCon Summit organization continues. The Summit got announced [5]

## Quality
- Prep work for next version of Ubuntu font testing
- Image [6] and package [7] trackers setup with xenial milestones and
testsuites. Xenial Desktop images can now be tested.
- Core apps automated testing: new core apps Jenkins soft launched. Old
Jenkins will continue to run in parallel next week, and will be sunset
after. New Jenkins allows for test runs to occur on a real device!
- New testsuite for Pilot [8] application pushed to store. Update and
submit the new results. This testsuite tests general phone usability,
rather than specific applications.

## Core Apps

preliminary support for connecting to SAMBA servers

lots of constructive developer feedback
