     30== Description of work performed during last quarter ==
     31
     32We continued integration of TUF with distutils.   We have integrated
     33with Seattle's updater and PrimoGENI.   We have a proof-of-concept
     34integration with PlanetLab's boot CD.   We have uncovered and begun
     35addressing usability problems.   We also have insight into the issue
     36of disclosing a security vulnerability when retrieving an update.

     57
     58
     59We integrated with distutils.   We have integrated into the Seattle
     60software updater and will be added in the next production release.
     61
     62We have integrated with PlanetLab's boot CD update mechanism and
     63PrimoGENI.   We have more work to do to get PlanetLab's integration
     64into production.   Our understanding is that TUF is used in production on
     65PrimoGENI.
