Subject: Bits from the Release Team: Freeze approaching!
Date: Sunday 13th May 2012 20:45:36 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Freeze planning =============== As you might remember, we are aiming at a freeze in June. The exact date has not been determined yet. However, given the large amount of work remaining, we are now targeting a freeze in the *second half of June*. If there is something you really believe should be in Wheezy and you expect that it will not be ready before we freeze, please contact us *now*. RC Bugs ======= There are now over 1000 release-critical bugs and we really need your help to fix them. The RC bug list is at [RCBUGS]. Note that in previous releases the RC bug count has been below 500 before a freeze occurs, so freezing with a higher number will simply make the release process longer. Transitions =========== We have many planned transitions already. However, in case you would like to do a transition in Wheezy please file a bug against release.debian.org now (i.e. not tomorrow)[TRANS]. Please note that this does *not* guarantee they will be processed in time for the freeze. After Sunday the 20th of May, any new transitions are likely not to be processed until after the release. [TRANS] When filing a transition bug, please follow the guidelines in https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/ReleaseTeam/Transitions [RCBUGS] http://bugs.debian.org/release-critical/other/testing.html Thanks for your attention, -- Cyril Brulebois on behalf of the Release Team
