+A proposal was made to make a few developers who are providing external
+services into official infra team members so the services could possibly be
+officially hosted.
+
+Council response: Developers who are interested in helping or joining the infra
+team should contact them directly and if they have issues should elevate things
+to comrel or the council as necessary.

+Some arches always appear to hold back stabilization and keywording efforts.
+In particular alpha, sparc, ia64, ppc and ppc64 were mentioned.
+
+Council response: Dropping excess packages from minor arches was discussed
+(i.e. focusing more effort on keeping the core system set stable) but the
+majority of discussion was passed back to the lists so arch teams can
+contribute more information and ideas.

+
+Easily allow arch teams to handle and stabilize non-arch packages (icons,
+theming, etc) across all arches.
+Example solutions given include adding a new bugzilla keyword such as
+"STABLEREQALL" or using a key set in a package's metadata.xml.
+
+\vote{The council voted to add the STABLEREQALL keyword to bugzilla which will
+allow the first arch that stabilizes a package to also stabilize the remaining,
+previous stable arches for the package.}{

+
+Implementation specific USE flags (e.g. gnome-keyring, libsecret, wallet, etc)
+force users to know about and enable each one. Perhaps instead use a global
+"keyring" USE flag that controls keyring support.
+
+Council response: Deferred to mailing lists and related projects or teams.
