Dear Developers,
   There has been some ambiguity around when the unseeded universe will
have its final freeze and expectations around it, so clarifying this has
been the subject of some recent discussion amongst the release team.
For those interested in getting those last important fixes to unseeded
universe packages included in the archive for 11.10,  unseeded universe
final freeze will be on Oct. 11 at 1200 UTC.  Submissions well before
this date are recommended though. 

   Fixes to important unseeded universe packages will be accepted
between now and Oct 11, after review by a release team member [1].  
Some of the release team members have agreed to monitor the channel
#ubuntu-motu for discussion of pending universe package fixes especially
in that last week.   Reviews are on a best effort basis.  Again, earlier
the fix is submitted, more likely someone will be able to review and
accept it.  ;)

   A new wiki page has been created to clarify the Unseeded Universe
Final Freeze [1].   Updates have also been made to the existing
documentation on Final Freeze [2] and Release Process [3] to reflect the
results of the discussion.  Please let me know if you spot any other
pages that need to be updated.

Thanks, Kate
