  * Outstanding

== Scan the mailing list archive for anything we missed ==
 * That was done, added to agenda below

== Request for Kubuntu Unseeded Packages Team ==
 * Would be best to create an explicit list of packages as a seed,
   based on the "reverse dependency" criterion
 * Once this list is done, DMB can implement

== Scope of Canonical's acquired ffmpeg patent licenses for derivatives ==
 * This is believed to be strictly an OEM business, and not apply to
   Ubuntu in general
 * [ACTION] Martin to confirm with Canonical's legal department and follow up

== Default sync source for Maverick ==
 * During lucid we synced from Debian testing by default; recently a
   survey[1] was done (summary at [2])
