+4. Open floor

+Appeals of Moderation Decisions
+The council decided unanimously that:
+"Longer term bans (>1w) and similarly impactful sanctions by moderation teams
+can be appealed to comrel. If the moderation team in question has a formal
+appeal procedure, that path has to be used before an appeal to comrel."
+A second vote was called as an addemdum to vote 2.1, with a motion that
+"For an appeal to be made it is the responsibility of the one appealing to
+provide evidence that the sanction was unjustified". This motion did not carry
+with 2 yes, 4 no and 1 abstaining vote.
+Forums (specifically OTW)
+No decisions were made during this item, but discussion was deferred to
+mailing lists for further discussions and re-opening at next meeting.
+A tracking bug is opened at https://bugs.gentoo.org/677824 to ensure this is
+followed up later.
+The default ACCEPT_LICENSE was discussed and the following two motions were
+"the default ACCEPT_LICENSE should be ACCEPT_LICENSE="@FREE" (subject to
+implementation details in further vote)" with 6 yes and 1 no vote, and;
+"The council affirms that the precise settings for the installation media are
+at the discretion of releng." with 4 yes votes, 2 no votes and 1 abstain.
+The latter motion carried after the motion "Installation medium is permitted
+to accept additional licenses necessary for binary blobs as long as these are
+binary redistributable" did not carry with 3 yes and 4 no votes.
+It was highligted that the implementation for the change needs to be done in a
+way that is not rushed in order to minimize negative user impact.
+Open bugs with council involvement
+- bug #637328: GLEP 14 needs to be updated
+ Nothing new for council at this point.
+No new items were raised during the open floor
