Review Previous Action Items

  • Nothing to review. We've had some NOOP meetings recently.

Aron Xu core-dev application

  • Application:

  • Vote: Grant Aron Xu core-dev rights? (not carried)

  • Motion not carried (For/Against/Abstained: 0/3/2)
  • Vote: Grant Aron Xu membership of ubuntukylin-dev (carried)

  • Motion carried (For/Against/Abstained: 5/0/0)

We welcome Aron as the first member of ubuntukylin-dev, and hope to see him reapply for core-dev in the future.

Forum Council

IRC Council

LoCo Council

Membership Boards

Technical Board

Meeting 2013-09-02:

  • Chair: Colin Watson
  • Attendees: Martin Pitt, Soren Hansen, Stéphane Graber
  • Apologies (US holiday): Kees Cook, Matt Zimmerman
  • Review our current "provisional" Micro Release Exceptions
    • We agreed to continue this by e-mail rather than reviewing them on
      • IRC.
  • Technical board restaffing (current memberships expire on 2013-10-06)
    • Colin Watson and Matt Zimmerman are retiring from the TB at the end of their terms.
    • [ACTION] Martin Pitt will contact Mark Shuttleworth to organise nominations and elections.
  • Review people in the ~uds-organizers team (Chris Johnston)

    • A set of people have been identified as clearly having stale memberships of ~uds-organizers (i.e. they are known to have previously been responsible for UDS tracks, but to now be inactive in Ubuntu or no longer involved in UDS); we will deactivate them straight away. If a mistake has been made then their memberships can of course be restored with apologies if they contact us.
    • There is another set we aren't sure about, and we will set a one-month expiry for them to give them a chance to respond.
    • For the rest of the team, we will set a regular one-year expiry to try to keep the team's membership fresh in future.

Meeting 2013-09-30:

  • Chair: Martin Pitt
  • Attendees: Colin Watson, Matt Zimmerman, Kees Cook, Soren Hansen, Stéphane Graber
  • Guest: Micah Gersten
  • Technical Board elections
    • Nominations/elections are running late, we asked SABDFL for extending the current board by a month
    • No public call for nominations so far, just some potential candidate recommendations by private mail to SABDFL
  • Requiring Core dev membership for TB members (Micah)
    • The board strongly recommends that TB members should be Ubuntu Core developers in order to qualify, and will send that recommendation to SABDFL
    • However, the board rejects making this a strict requirement, for both practical and formal reasons: the electorate's vote should have the final word on this, an existing TB member (Matt Zimmerman) has voluntarily given up core-dev membership in the interest of privilege minimization, and there are doubts that the TB would even have the power to restrict its own membership rules.
  • Provisional MRE Request For KDE Telepathy (Scott Kitterman)

    • Straightforward extension of the existing KDE MRE, unanimously approved.
  • Chair for next meeting: Kees Cook
