+      <p>The &os; Core Team constitutes the project's <q>Board of
+	Directors</q>, responsible for deciding the project's overall
+	goals and direction as well as managing specific areas of the
+	&os; project landscape.</p>
+      <p>The first quarter of 2014 was very active for the Core Team.
+	&a.jhb; and &a.theraven; kept coordinating the work required for
+	providing a newer version of X.Org for 9.x and 10.x systems.
+	Now, after that <tt>vt(4)</tt>, a successor to
+	<tt>syscons(4)</tt> that offers a KMS-enabled console, has been
+	merged to both <tt>stable/9</tt> and <tt>stable/10</tt>, an
+	alternative <tt>pkg(8)</tt> repository is in preparation for
+	wider testing.  In addition to that, &a.jhb; published the
+	policy on licenses for new files and files with non-standard
+	licenses.  Thanks to the efforts of &a.gavin;, &os; has again
+	made it into the Google Summer of Code program, for the tenth
+	time now.  &a.theraven; reported that both <tt>libc++</tt> and
+	<tt>libstdc++</tt> can be now built as all the
+	standards-compliant implementations of the required numerical
+	functions have been added.</p>
+      <p>The Core Team has conducted an annual review among the Project
+	teams and hats, where they had to declare if they are wishing to
+	continue their service.  As a result, &a.flo; replaced &a.dhw;
+	in the lead role of the Postmaster Team, and &a.gjb; assumed the
+	head Release Engineer position from &a.kensmith;.  The Core Team
+	congratulates to Florian and Glen, and thanks David and Ken for
+	their long-standing work.</p>
+      <p>The Core Team approved chartering the Ports Security Team,
+	which is established to maintain security updates for the ported
+	applications.  In coordination with the Port Management Team,
+	<tt>pkg_tools</tt> was eventually deprecated and tagged with an
+	End-of-Life date, in order to clear the way for <tt>pkg(8)</tt>.
+	The Port Management Team also requested a way to make it
+	possible to track userland ABI and KBI changes reliably for the
+	Ports Collection.  Ideally this can be achieved by increasing
+	the value of <tt>__FreeBSD_version</tt> on each fix, therefore
+	the corresponding discussion concluded in freezing the ABI note
+	tag for releases in order to keep the size of the binary patches
+	for <tt>freebsd-update(8)</tt> low.  A related Errata Notice is
+	about to be published soon.</p>
+      <p>There was only a single commit bit was taken for safekeeping,
+	we did not have new committers to the <tt>src/</tt> repository in
+	this quarter.</p>
