Main frozen for Alpha 3

Hi everyone,

We're two days before the scheduled release of Intrepid 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:

The number of bugs targeted to this early milestone is still quite small,
but there's plenty of other work to be done in getting the archive in
a consistent state so that we don't have uninstallable packages for the
alpha-3 milestone:

Remember that this is a "soft" freeze, so you are each responsible for
making sure your uploads are appropriate - Launchpad will not be your safety

Packages that are not seeded on the CDs (i.e., most packages in universe,
with the exception of UbuntuStudio[1] and Xubuntu[2] packages) may be
uploaded as usual.

Steve Langasek
On behalf of the Ubuntu release team
