Main frozen for Alpha 6

Hi everyone,

We're two days before the scheduled release of Hardy Alpha 6, so the
milestone freeze is in effect.  Please take care that any packages that you
upload to main between now and the Alpha 6 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.

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 - bearing in mind that the Feature Freeze is also now in

Steve Langasek
On behalf of the Ubuntu release team
