Today, the Developer Membership Board voted [1] to approve two "new"

- Daniel Watkins (Odd_Bloke)

Daniel has been working for a while on the set of cloud images; and his
request for upload rights to the ubuntu-cloud packageset (packages used
to generate/build/configure cloud images) has been approved.

Furthermore, the DMB has agreed to add zerofree and libdumbnet to the
packages in the ubuntu-cloud packageset, as also requested by Daniel.

- Nish Aravamudan (nacc)

Nish has done a tremendous amount of work on the transition from PHP 5
to PHP 7, as well as on improving the merge workflow for the Ubuntu
Server team. His application to join the Ubuntu Core Developers team was
unanimously approved.

I would like to congratulate both our applicants as well as thank them
for their contributions to Ubuntu!


On behalf of the DMB;
