Chair: Martin Pitt
Present: Mark Shuttleworth, Colin Watson, Kees Cook
 * Setting the Ubuntu series release manager in Launchpad to ubuntu-release 
  * No further problems with this expected, Colin agreed to doing the switch
  * Things to check:
   * non-release-team core-devs can target tasks to oneiric; already
     tested in https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad/+bug/451390/comments/10
   * non-core-dev release team members can modify oneiric milestones

 * Measuring installation success/failure, updated proposal from Evan
   Dandrea: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/technical-board/2011-June/000935.html
  * the purpose of collecting the data is to make Ubuntu better
  * while we won't make the data entirely public (avoiding unexpected
    privacy concerns, and competitive questions), people with
    technical/research projects who have a need for it can ask the TB
    for data (this includes Canonical employees)
  * for opt-out we need to write a privacy policy
  * people who are concerned about what data we're collecting can of
    course examine the client source code; we won't correlate IP
    addresses with this
  * we need to discuss data security (against theft) with IS
  * This proposal, under above conditions, got 4 out of 4 votes from
    the present TB members; for the record, Scott James Remnant
    mentioned that he'd prefer having all the data being public

 * SRU microrelease exception for Banshee
  * Upstream clarified and documented patch backporting and QA policy:
  * Got 4 out of 4 votes from the present TB members, accepted; wiki
    page updated accordingly

 * DMB voting procedure was discussed quickly, but we ran out of time.
   Will be discussed via email or carried to next meeting.

 * Policy proposal for partner repository: Ran out of time, carried to
   next meeting.
