Hi all,

This is a quick note to let everyone know the timeline for the gutsy freeze. 
To ensure a successful build of all release images in time for Thursday's
scheduled release, the CD building process will begin on Monday after 18:00
UTC.  Since main must be frozen at that time, we will be freezing universe
as well so that the gutsy-updates queue can be set up in parallel to the CD

This means that any fixes that you are targetting for gutsy need to be
uploaded with enough lead time to be reviewed by the release team, accepted,
and built by the buildds prior to 18:00 UTC on Monday.  As a fuzzy deadline,
I would suggest aiming to have packages uploaded to gutsy by 10:00 UTC, and
preferably well before that.
