Main frozen for Alpha-3

Dear developers,

Two days out from the expected release of Karmic Alpha 3, 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 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, Xubuntu, and Mythbuntu packages) may be
uploaded as usual.

Thank you!
