Subject: Main frozen for Alpha 2

Dear developers,

Two days out from the expected release of Maverick Alpha 2, the milestone
freeze is now in effect.  Please take care that any packages that you
upload to main between now and the Alpha 2 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.


Colin Watson, for the Ubuntu release team          [cjwatson at]
