August 19, 2017 UBports Community Update
It's time again! Our next Community Update, an event for the community to hear about UBports news and ask questions, is upon us again! You can check out the Youtube event page (where the stream will be hosted) here.
I'm gathering questions from around the forum. If you have a targeted question that you'd like to have us answer live, throw it in a reply below!

When can we expect 15.04 OTA-2 to be released? On Github milestones it shows 78% comlete but no due date.
Is the development of the Halium rootfs happening in a public repository somewhere? I think it would help device porting efforts that are being worked on in the community if the rootfs were available publicly, even if it is not consumer ready.
Also will there be a Halium 5.1 Ubuntu Touch rootfs?
There is an effort under way to move the ubports documentation from the wiki to readthedocs https://forums.ubports.com/topic/467/i-need-help-reorganizing-the-wiki. Can you explain the motivation for the move and for the choice of technologies? It seems to me that contributing to the documentation will be technically a bit more complicated. Are we not scaring away contributors? Are other technologies still under evaluation?

Will the BQ M10 FHD also receive update to 16.04?
On the UBports devices website
BQ M10 FHD - These devices will soon be rebased on Ubuntu 16.04
Actually I installed 16.04 already on my M10 FHD device, when Canonical was the developer and it was somehow working.
But somewhere I was reading, that UBports will not make 16.04 for that device, because it's not open source hardware.
@speedracer08861 Also if and when the mobile data connectios dropping bug will be sorted dropping for Pro 5? And the glitches with the keyboard?
I've seen a lot of talk about Halium flash by; is there any overview of the Halium ports already available or being worked on?

@rogier.oudshoorn You can look here: https://github.com/Halium/projectmanagement/issues - there are tracking bugs for various ports. IMHO none of these devices is ready so that it can be used on an image though... also @doniks please look at those issuse there, and the repos of the Halium team. You can also ask there or in their Telegram group.
UBports is supporting Halium but "we are not Halium".
I answered your questions this week by asking not to report bugs in the questions. Please see the UBports images bug tracker to report or check on the status of bugs.
@UniSuperBox ok, thanks.
