      1. STATUS: Done, but see below.
  4. New Business
    1. Release Team Members
      1. Targeting bugs to series is currently a power held only by release team members. Should this be expanded to include additional bug wranglers to assist with?
        • Decision was made to add all committers to the release team, and to create an Evergreen Drivers team that has the power to target bugs to series (currently Dyrcona, bshum, moodaepo)
        • dbs went forth and created this team
    2. Community Supported Versions of Evergreen
      1. Need to finish formalizing an EOL policy.
      2. moodaepo had suggested basing something similar to Fedora's on 2011-11-17
        • After much discussion, it was agreed that:
          1. We would support the two most recent minor release series, with one extra month of support for the third minor release series after the GA of the most recent minor release series.
          2. We would try to harmonize our terminology across the downloads, versioning, and support policy pages (with respect to "series" and "major releases", etc)
  5. Announcements
    1. Conifer will be hosting another TPac development day at University of Windsor on December 8th and 9th. Ask dbs for more details.

After the meeting, remove the agenda from the IRC channel topic.
