hi community,

this is the summary of the second MOTU meeting, 
held on march 22 2005 23:30 UTC

------------------------------------------------------------------------
* the first topic * 
was the possibility to keep universe unfrozen a bit after the release
date, to have the possibility to fix more packages.

- since that is not a topic the MOTU can decide for themselves we
invited the main team to the discussion.

- the overall consensus was that universe has to freeze with all the
other archives.

- MOTU will try to set prioritys on the several lists [1] based on the
debian popcon statistics, to make sure at least the most popular
packages get fixed before release.

- during the discussion the point came up that its planned to import
most of the apt-get.org repositorys into universe, which makes the
designed QA process that MOTU worked out during the last weeks kind of
pointless, we will have to rework this one completely.

* second topic * 
was which NEW packages on the list [2] will be focused on before release

- with regard to the broken QA process above, we'll get all these
packages in before release, since their quality will match the
apt-get.org standards already.

* the third topic * 
was the inclusion of Xfce4.2 in universe before release

- the whole MOTU team fully agrees that this is absolutely desirable and
the MOTUDesktop team will care for the inclusion soon.

* fourth topic * 
was the decision for a default icon for menu entrys that dont have a
icon yet

- we couldnt decide for a certain icon and postponed the decision. a
suggested icon can be seen on [3].

* fifth topic * 
was the handling of the morgue candidates list for obsolete packages [4]

- the decision here was to drop all listed packages right away after
checking their reverse dependencys.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
the next MOTU meeting will be scheduled on occasion within he next four
weeks if enough topics are on the agenda [5].
