Meeting summary and log:
http://ubottu.com/meetingology/logs/ubuntu-meeting/2013/ubuntu-meeting.2013-07-08-19.58.html

Members present: Matt Zimmerman (chair), Colin Watson, Kees Cook, Soren
Hansen, Stephane Graber

- The question of the development series alias name was deferred to the next
  meeting (noting that it was not blocking engineering work at the time)

- The board resolved that an explicit linking exception is required in order
  for GPL software (v2 or v3) to dynamically link with OpenSSL in Ubuntu,
  noting that a statement from the copyright holder is sufficient.

- Kees Cook agreed to review the outstanding "provisional" micro-release
  exceptions on
  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates/MicroReleaseExceptions
  incorporating data on known regressions in updates to these packages.
  Using this information, the board will decide whether to make these
  exceptions permanent.
