Following decisions in the 2018-11-05 AC meeting, I have set the
current AC members listed at
as owners of the embargo-notice list until such time as they are
able to delegate the related duties. I have also added myself and
kept Thierry as backup list owners in case our assistance with list
configuration is required. I removed the other OSF staff from the
owner and moderator fields.

After gaining administrator rights from Anne (thanks!) to the
https://launchpad.net/~kata-containers/+members team which maintains
that project, I deactivated her account and elevated all the current
AC members to administrators as well so they can maintain it going
forward. I left myself and an administrator for now but will happily
demote or even deactivate my account if desired. I also left
Thierry's account active in case you want two OSF staff as backup
administrators to help with LP project configuration. I further left
Julio Montes's administrator account there for now until I can get
confirmation as to how the AC wishes to proceed in that regard
(i.e., whether he will be a seed member of the VMT). I also removed
the explicit "all" grant to Anne's account under
https://launchpad.net/katacontainers.io/+sharing so that only the
kata-containers (AC) team mentioned above has access to all private
and private security bug reports from this point on.

I'll follow up with details on any more actions after the 2018-11-28
conference call Claire has arranged with the AC.
