  vuntz will explain why (libegg, libsexy, needs to be in gtk) in announcement

3) Membership

As approved unanimously, a new rule in 2 parts:
  We have an emeritus section of the release-team membership page.
  Past release-team members are welcome to be subscribed to
  release-team and provide helpful advice.  Luis has done this, and
  has been of great help.

  Someone can move from current member of the release team to the
  emeritus list by either of two methods:
    1) self-choice
    2) they don't show up to any meetings for two cycles and the
       remainder of the team agrees at a meeting that the individual
       has moved to emeritus status

Changes in the team:
  New emeritus status
    - We agreed to move Jeff to emeritus status, and hopes he remains
      on the list to provide advice.  He has a lot of useful
    - [Andre was going to ask someone else about their status in the
       team, but they showed up later.]
  Replacement team members
    We have two vacancies.  We agreed on the following queue of people:
      - olav, guenther, halfline, fpeters
    Andre to contact them, in that order, until we find two suckers^Wvolunteers

4) Releases

2.19.90 kmaraas
2.19.91 fcrozat
2.19.92 kmaraas
2.20.0  fcrozat
2.20.1  J5 (tentatively), elijah as backup

Anyone who can possibly serve as a backup for 2.20.0 would be
appreciated.  We had four "I probably can't make it"'s at the meeting.
