     - Debian builds
         - Intermittent failures seen this week; mostly related to packaging issues

Open Requests for Help

     - Action: Greg to reply.
- StarlingX on AWS Bare Metal Servers: http://lists.starlingx.io/pipermail/starlingx-discuss/2022-June/013087.html
     - Greg provided a response. 
     - Conclusion is that AWS Bare metal servers doesn't support setting up L2 networks, so it can't run StarlingX.
