For the record, this was discussed on yesterday's TB meeting. We do
not want to give a blanket exception without at least having seen a
couple of successful Chromium SRUs.

So it was decided that the SRU team should review and process some
Chromium SRUs until they get confidence in the process, and then
report back to TB for a general exception once there's enough routine
in it.

Thank you,
