We are one week out from the 8.10 release candidate and two weeks from the
final release, so the archive is now frozen and will not thaw again before

During the freeze, all uploads to main must be approved by a member of the
release team, so if you have fixes that are important to get in and will
need discussion, please do get in touch as soon as possible.  Uploads to
main should at this point focus on release-critical bugs only.

Uploads to universe should follow the guidelines described here:

The list of release-critical bugs that we want to still try to resolve
before the release candidate on October 23 is tracked here:

Additional bugs that are still considered "targets of opportunity" for the
release are found at:

If you have bugs which you believe should be listed there but aren't yet,
please get in touch with me or another member of the release team.
