## Old Business
- Adoption of point release iso builds. Only fsr and rrq have responded:

- (fsr) point-release docs - look at installer guide to see if openrc is
mentioned. I think it's in the list of additional installer components
that comes up early in the install.

## Old Actions

- (Evilham) Amprolla patch: yes, no, policy requires test coverage for
every change from anyone? Review is sufficient? yes? no? nobody
cares? :-)

## New Business

- root DNS migration
Ahoy mateys! DNS is changing so fasten your seatbelts and make sure we
can hold the load, the primary DNS servers for devuan are becoming
  - (Evilham) ATM this would break deb.devuan.org. Make sure things are
    checked thoroughly. Also, access should be ensured for those who
    keep an eye on the bits of the zone that are dynamic. Ideally it'd
    even be possible to automate that.

- (Evilham) Amprolla(?):
  - Sources.gz lies and can't be trusted with correct information.
    It has been raised before. Flagrant offenders: openssh and linux
  - Sources.gz in Debian contains a package multiple times sometimes.
    Amprolla(? or something else) gets confused. See e.g. sphinx, linux
