> Topic: Management of old patches in patchwork
> * Unanimous agreement that old patches should be rejected in patchwork
>   after a reasonable period, set initially at 3 releases (9 months).
> * After a release, all patches dated older than 3 releases previously,
>   e.g. after 17.11, any patches submitted before the release of 17.02,
>   will be marked as rejected and a mail reply sent to the appropriate

> Topic: Licensing
> * No major updates. Discussion in progress on a number of items that
>   need relicensing or exceptions.
> Topic: Technical Board Voting
> * For charter changes the governing board requires a 2/3 majority. The
>   technical board has no such special case for charter or policy
>   changes.
> * Following brief discussion, most seemed happy with the current
>   situation where a simple majority suffices for such decisions.
> Next Meeting:
> * 2017-12-20 @ 3pm UTC
