Hello Ubuntu developers,

We are now one week from the first beta release of 10.04, scheduled for
March 18 (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LucidReleaseSchedule), and have just
entered beta freeze.

During the freeze, all uploads to main must be approved by a member of the
release team [1], so if you have fixes which are important to get in, please
do get in touch as soon as possible.  Uploads to universe require a manual
push through the queue, but are not subject to release management approval.

Issues which are important for the beta release will be tracked by the
release team here:


If you have bugs on this list, please fix them at the earliest possible
opportunity, or (in consultation with other developers and the Ubuntu QA
team) un-milestone them if they are not required for beta. If you have
bugs you think should be on this list, talk with the Ubuntu QA team or the
Ubuntu release team about having them milestoned.

Please also do not lose sight of the list of bugs affecting the release as a


Over the next few days, please pay attention to eliminating
inconsistencies in the archive, including:

    uninstallable packages in main and restricted

    obsolete packages which still have reverse-dependencies

Archive administrators should spend time ensuring that any pending
main<->universe component changes have been processed
Developers, if you are waiting for something on this list, please help out
by filing good main inclusion reports.
