This was the first meeting of the new board following the recent

= Action review =

 * [ACTION] persia to ask CC to make DMB an admin of
   ~universe-contributors, as part of the DMB/MC merge (carried over;
   but in the meantime TB members can act on changes)

= motu-release team =

Scott Kitterman noted that the motu-release team currently has no
administrators.  This was dealt with by setting ubuntu-release as
administrator, pending a full team merge.

= MOTU direction (ScottK, cjwatson) =

 * initial drafting complete, subject to approval by DMB and TB
 * [ACTION] ScottK to start discussion on future of MOTU Council among
   its constituency (MOTU)
 * DMB is presently hearing MOTU applications, although there seems to
   be some confusion about this
  * [ACTION] cjwatson to confirm MOTU process with TB
 * current draft approved unanimously, aside from pending motu-council
 * will continue with TB

 * Dmitrijs has been working on xiphos and sword, and was approved

 * See previous thread on motu-council:
 * We separated Elliot's application into a few parts:
  * MOTU
   * Of five members present, two voted in favour, with three
     abstentions (citing a desire for more sponsored uploads)
   * [ACTION] cjwatson to gather votes from absent members by e-mail
  * ubuntuone-client, ubuntuone-storage-protocol, erlang, couchdb,
    desktopcouch, python-configglue, rabbitmq-server: approved
  * evolution-couchdb, couchdb-glib: denied on the basis that the person

    do packaging work on these and will reapply
  * libubuntuone: not yet in the archive; deferred
