Soft freeze in effect for Oneiric Alpha 2

Hello Ubuntu developers,

Two days out from the expected release of Maverick 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:

As always, there's also 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-2 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 net.

Packages that are not seeded on the CDs (i.e., most packages in
universe, with the exception of Ubuntu Studio, Xubuntu, and Mythbuntu
packages) may be uploaded as usual.

Thank you,

Martin Pitt
