LU-6260 - Newer Ubuntu support. Oleg unsure if he should land after Feature Freeze. Generally we do allow new kernel support until the Code Freeze.
LU-6490 - doesn't work on RHEL7 without this fix, so seems like legitimate bug fix for 2.8.0.
LU-3031 - solve three or four problems in one patch. Currently at patch 28, under way for two years. Probably best to break it up into multiple patches if too hard to review in current form.
DNE testing discussion - Peter finding and fixing bugs on the OpenSFS test cluster James - 1 million files and above with DNE used to be a problem. Needs to retest. James carrying 15 patches against master that address DNE2 issues.
2.8.0 release development status - Code Freeze 1 month away, release 2 months away.
ORNL going to test 2.8, first test 2.8 clients with 2.5, 2.5 client with 2.8
