== Default ntpd configuration (Bug:104525) ==
 * Xavier already asked for `X.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org` to be created, and it is working.
 * Provides round-robin with geolocation, and thus should provide more decentralized service on average
 * The only concern is about their quality assessment, otherwise this was regarded as an improvement
 * Action: Martin to check with James Troup about current quality experience of pool.ntp.org
 * Action: Martin to add TB as vendor contact point for http://groups.google.com/group/ntppool-vendors?pli=1
 * TB will review this topic again in the next meeting once above actions are done.

== Seamonkey microrelease SRU exception ==
 * Martin and Mark already voted +1 by mail; Kees and Colin voted +1 in meeting
 * Approved and added to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates/MicroReleaseExceptions
