*__Tracks__*

* Started taking over maintenance of [rootfs][stacks]
* Working on building CF-specific binaries.
* Moved to Concourse. Will be made public shortly.
* [upcoming] Will soon be removing support for lucid64 rootfs.

Some discussion with Michael Fraenkel about the timing of removal of
lucid64 from `cf-release`, and whether this impacts the buildpacks
work. We'll loop up with Dieu in the Runtime PMC tomorrow.

linking of libpcre3 in the expectation of an upstream patch for
CVE-2015-3210 to rootfs.
* Released [python-buildpack][python] which updates to [python
2.7.10][pyrelease]
* Released [php-buildpack][php] which includes some security improvements
and updates to PHP interpreters.
