Main frozen for Alpha 6

Dear developers,

Jaunty Alpha 6 is scheduled for this Thursday, Mar 12, so the milestone
freeze is now in effect.  Please take care that any packages 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:

The number of bugs targeted to this milestone as blockers is 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-6 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.

Steve Langasek
On behalf of the Ubuntu release team
