Hi Clint,

I think this really needs some further clarification.

I followed this process earlier this year, when performing an SRU for
bind9 which involved a new upstream version.. This was jumping from
upstream versions 9.7.0 -> 9.7.3 in Lucid.

I raised the subject with the TB, and mdz responded that:
"MicroReleaseExceptions is a list of standing exceptions. It's not
necessary to go through the tech board to handle one-off requests like
this one. The SRU team can decide what to do here without TB
involvement." [0]

Is this still the case?
