Re: Defining GNOME software (finally)

Hi everyone,

 - Committees page -
 - Release Team page -

release team would need to get authorisation from a staff member
whenever they want to add or remove a module from the official
modulesets (core-developer-tools, core-os-services, core-shell,

We could have Emmanuele or another Foundation staff member approve such
changes. I don't think that would be a problem.
