17 actually this is came up in the meeting as something we would like to see
18 spelled out explicitly ... either as a GLEP itself or as a policy update to
19 current stabilization practices
21 the GLEP was approved on the grounds that we need an x86 team and that it
22 needs to be treated as any other arch ... arch team interaction with
23 maintainers should be spelled out clearly rather than part of a single
24 sentence '... or make individual arrangements with the x86 arch team.'
