We are one week out from the 10.04 LTS release candidate and two weeks from
the final release, so as many of you have probably already noticed, the
archive is now frozen and will not thaw again before release.

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.

See the previous message for more information about this process:

The list of release-critical bugs that we want to still try to resolve
before the release candidate on April 22 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.

In addition, Lucas Nussbaum has helpfully been providing a list of packages
that fail to build in Lucid.  Please help us to make 10.04 LTS the best
release possible by pitching in to resolve these build failures:
