Hi all,

I'm just hoping for a little clarification from the release team on
Universe/un-seeded packages. The cited e-mail refers to approval from
motu-release through out, i.e.:

  "During FinalFreeze, every upload to universe/multiverse will need to be
  approved by motu-release. To enforce this, no uploads will pass the queue
  of the archive admins, unless a proper granted exception is present."

Of course, motu-release no longer exists. Are exception expected to
now be granted by ubuntu-release? If so, this is a change from the
Lucid cycle AFAICT, and should be explicitly stated not left for us to
infer. In Lucid, Steve Langasek, on behalf of the release team, wrote:

  "For packages in universe that aren't seeded in any of the Ubuntu flavors,
   this final freeze is nominal; packages must be manually accepted by the
   archive admins, but no additional approval is required."
