Main frozen for Alpha 3

Hi everyone,

We're two days before the scheduled release of Hardy Alpha 3, so the
milestone "freeze" is now in effect.  Please take care that any packages
that you upload to main between now and the Alpha 3 release will help us in
the goal of a high quality and timely alpha, and hold any disruptive or
unnecessary uploads until after the alpha is out.  Again, this means the
primary focus should be on resolving these bugs:
Remember that this is a
"soft" freeze, so you are each responsible for making sure your uploads fit
this description - Launchpad will not be your safety net in this case.

Uploads to universe may be done as usual since they do not affect builds of
the CDs.  The one exception to this is UbuntuStudio; if your universe
package is seeded on the UbuntuStudio CDs[1], I'm sure the UbuntuStudio
developers will thank you for your help in letting them also partake of the
Hardy Alpha.
