These should first be formally approved by voting by the Executive Council. This is planned to happened at the October 22nd EC meeting.

I see 4 members of the EC have approved this PR. Is that enough for this to be merged?

In principle yes. But I have just asked the rest of EC to vote to get as high a count as possible. I'll merge once we are done voting.
