Re: Xenial (16.04) Status on Touch
As mentioned by YC already, the most effort right now was to get
xenial arm64 working on frieza (M10). There was basically no work done
on the mako or any other platforms so far so it's rather 'expected'
that staging doesn't work on this platform. Devel-proposed was
yakkety/zesty based and got developer attention. Devel is very old -
it was a manual promotion channel from devel-proposed.
Anyway, the consensus: we have no idea of the mako state with xenial,
I wouldn't really count on it being usable anytime soon (it's a really
really old device). I did try krillin a few weeks before and it was
booting, at least, but best bet is to just use frieza.
