Accepting, but please test against all supported kernel versions during SRU verification, not just the new HWE one.

Actually it looks like the previous SRU for the same type of DKMS vs. HWE failure never got SRU verified. Please first resolve that, or commit to verifying this SRU if it is squashed in, etc.

Hello Seth, or anyone else affected,

Accepted rtl8812au into bionic-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rtl8812au/ in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-bionic to verification-done-bionic. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-bionic. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

I have tested this version and the DKMS package successfully builds and loads. I also have run the ADT tests for the following kernels to ensure there's no regressions:

- linux-generic 4.15.0-66.75
- linux-azure 5.0.0-1023.24~18.04.1
- linux-hwe-edge 5.3.0-19.20~18.04.2
