The Ubuntu 7.10 beta release is approaching, scheduled for 27th
September (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/GutsyReleaseSchedule). Please refer
to the milestone overview in Launchpad for a list of remaining items:


This shows fix-released bugs too; I suggest sorting by assignee then
status to produce a more digestible list.

If you have bugs on this list, please fix them at the earliest possible
opportunity, or (in consultation with other developers and the Ubuntu QA
team) un-milestone them if they are not required for beta. If you have
bugs you think should be on this list, talk with the Ubuntu QA team
about having them milestoned.

The beta freeze will begin on 20th September; after that point uploads
will require approval from the release team, which will generally only
be granted if they fix beta-critical bugs. The toolchain freeze begins
now; toolchain changes require approval from the release team.

Over the next few days, please pay attention to eliminating
inconsistencies in the archive, including:

    uninstallable packages in main and restricted

    undeclared Replaces or Conflicts (contact Robert Collins or Michael
    Vogt about false positives or if you need help)

Archive administrators should spend time ensuring that any pending
main<->universe promotions and demotions have been processed
(http://people.ubuntu.com/~ubuntu-archive/component-mismatches.txt). If
you are waiting for something on this list, please help out by filing
good main inclusion reports.

Good luck!

Colin Watson, for the Ubuntu release team          [cjwatson at ubuntu.com]
