This is a very important testing period, in deed, so we should all make
use of this time to find problems. As Ross already has pointed out,
after Debian Import Freeze, we stop getting new packages from Debian.
And, after Feature Freeze, changes to Ubuntu are generally only bug
fixes, so for those reasons, now is a perfect time to do quality
assurance testing.

Also, we are still lacking a few things. We should get wallpaper
packages ready for upload. Tomorrow I'll be uploading whatever is still
missing, such as a new version of ubuntustudio-controls, which I'm
working on. Those are not critical for our tests, but would be nice to
have there for all to try out.
