GNOME had a micro release exception granted by the Technical Board in June 2012. Since the granting of micro release exceptions was made more generic and then decisions delegated to the SRU team directly, the documentation of this exception was removed.
However, GNOME does not meet the new generic terms on the QA requirement. The policy requires a TB exception. Since this was granted previously, including the consideration of QA, we can treat this as "grandfathered".
Therefore, GNOME has a microrelease exception as follows, which applies regardless of the additional QA requirements in the current general MRE policy:
- "GNOME (only the core modules and apps, not the entirety of what is hosted on gnome.org) (approved on 2012-06-22)"
