13 The basis that it has once been accepted as well as another time invited
14 more discussion, clearly indicates that it needs further bikeshedding:
18 * GLEP 48 (QA)
19 After a long discussion and a review of the final proposal text, the
20 result is the following:
21 - vote:
22 in favor: scarabeus, ferringb, wired, jmbsvicetto
23 didn't state (abstain): betelgeuse, patrick, a3li
24 -> Given the result, the GLEP update is accepted and can proceed,
25 albeit Peteri raised a question how Devrel is going to work out the
26 resolution after the process is handled over from QA. It was agreed
27 that the part of the text (last sentence of the diff) will be
28 updated with string based on what those two teams agree with
29 without more council involvment (unless required otherwise)..
33 * GLEP48 review
35 Jorge submitted a proposal to the ml to update GLEP48[4].
36 After some initial debate over the power granted to the QA team,
37 the timeline in case of an escalation to DevRel, the relation with
38 DevRel and whether QA should only enforce policies or also take
39 part in creating policies, after the request by Patrick, Jorge
40 -> suggested pushing this back to the mls. Petteri then asked the
41 council to at least vote to commit the non suspension related parts
42 of the proposal. The diff[5] was approved with 6 yes votes. Alec
43 during this discussion presented some thoughts about the QA team[6].
45 [4] -
47 [5] -
49 [6] -

54 This assumes that the decisions have voted against the matter; however,
55 they voted for this matter on the basis of a small change to be made to
56 it (20110308-summary.txt) but that never happened and seems forgotten.
58 Some developers even refer to Diego having used this power in the past.

64 This assumes the topic to be useless or boring; however, that's personal
65 opinion and there is an useful need for this from the QA, Council and
66 ComRel perspective. Sometimes we need to deal with a more serious topic.
68 This is one of those days.
