Subject: Bits from the Release Team: Final countdown!

Hi, We know no-one likes reading long mails on d-d-a, so we'll keep this short: we'll be stopping automatic migrations of packages from unstable to testing - aka freezing - on June 30th. Any packages in unstable before the 19:52 dinstall begins on that day will be given automatic freeze exceptions (for the specific version in unstable). As with the Squeeze freeze the process will be gradual, with a more liberal acceptance policy in the earlier stages. Precise details as to what that means will be available soon. Regards, Neil McGovern for the ☃-ing Release Team
