 * Approvals for new MOTUs
  * There was a very long discussion about whether the DMB or the MC should handle applications for new MOTUs
  * There is a certain tension between MOTU self-governance, and having done the DMB elections under the announcement of unifying the approval process of core-devs, MOTUs and per-package uploaders
  * The MC is currently in the process of redefining its goals and reconstituting
  * The TB unanimously took the following decision:

    Hearing and approvals for MOTU will now be exclusively done by the DMB,
    with the option of delegating it to the MC upon request by MC or DMB, and
    approval by TB in the future.

 * Prior actions: deferred until next meeting, due to timeout
