Unified SRU policy and team for main/universe

Hello Ubuntu developers,

during the course of general archive reorganization, and a recent
(short) discussion on ubuntu-devel@ [1] and on IRC, the SRU teams for
main (ubuntu-sru) and universe (motu-sru) have now joined together in


This now means that any member can review/approve/reject any SRU
request. (However, only the archive administrators amongst the team
members can actually press the buttons to accept uploads, but that's
the smallest part of SRU review really).

The policy was already updated a while ago to uniquely apply to the
entire archive:


In particular, you now should just subscribe "ubuntu-sru" to all SRU
requests. "motu-sru" will still work, since ubuntu-sru is now the sole
member of motu-sru, but its usage should be phased out.

Thank you for your attention,
