To: ubuntu-devel-announce at lists.ubuntu.com

Dear Ubuntu developers,

The expected release date of Intrepid Alpha 3 is next Thursday, July 24.

Intrepid Alpha 3 will again use a "soft freeze" for main[1].  This means
that developers are asked to refrain from uploading packages between Tuesday
and Thursday which don't bring us closer to releasing the alpha, so that
these days can be used for settling the archive and fixing any remaining

The (quite short) list of bugs targeted for alpha-3 can be found at:


Per a previous announcement on this list[2] and the policy at
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RCBugTargetting>, this list is used for tracking
bugs that are blockers for the alpha 3 milestone.  If you know of other bugs
that should be considered blockers, please nominate them for release and set
the milestone target for those bugs.  If you have questions about whether a
bug should be considered a blocker, please contact a member of the release

And of course, please also consider helping with the bugs already listed
there if you have the time.

Beyond that short list of bugs that are blockers for Alpha 3, we have those
bugs that are listed as release-critical for intrepid as a whole:


If you aren't among the small group of people who have milestoned bugs
assigned to you, please consider helping with those bugs, using your best
judgement with regard to the alpha freeze when uploading fixes.

Please also help us to get the archive in a consistent state again for the
alpha, as described on

Finally, if you know of new features in Intrepid that you think should be
highlighted for Alpha 3, let me or another member of the release team know
so that they can be added to the technical overview at
