Policy Changes


With the MOTU Meeting of 2007-03-06, the policy to do StableReleaseUpdates for universe changed. Now, any MOTU can simply upload to (distribution)-proposed, without requiring previous acknowledgements from the motu-sru team. Also the need to get 5 "works for me" comments from testers was reduced to 2. However the minimum aging period in (distribution)-proposed of 7 days still remains. As a result, the team motu-sru won't be needed any longer. Further information: [:MOTU/Meetings/2007-03-06], [:MOTU/SRU].
