Beta Freeze is now in effect (Thursday, September 20).
All uploads to the archive will now have to be approved manually
by the release team, prior to inclusion.
Please use the rls-q-incoming tag on any bugs found if
its urgent to get fixed, so it comes to the attention of
the appropriate development team as soon as possible.
Also, this is now the time to review your blueprints,
and for those blueprints with features ready, please mark them
"beta available" or "complete" as appropriate. This will
aid in generation of better release notes.
If you have information that should be added to the
techical overview for beta 2, the draft document is now
available for input. 
Thank you for your cooperation,
on behalf of the Ubuntu Release Team.
