Impish Indri (to be 21.10) now in Feature Freeze

Hello Ubuntu developers,

As per the release schedule, Impish Indri is now in Feature Freeze.

Ideally, you will all now be focusing on bug fixing and not on getting
new features into the release. However, if necessary, please follow the
process for freeze exceptions:

As is the custom, packages that have been uploaded to impish-proposed 
prior to the feature freeze deadline, but have gotten stuck there,
remain candidates for fixing between now and release.

Remember that version strings don't matter for Feature Freeze. If you
upload a new upstream release and it has no new features then you don't
need an exception. If you add a debian/patch that adds a new feature, or
enable one via build flags then you do. We care about the content of the
archive, not about precisely how things got there.

On behalf of the Ubuntu Release team,
