Dear developers,

Thanks to all of you for your help in making this past Thursday's beta

release a great success. *10.04 LTS is shaping up to be a great release!

A brief reminder of the timeline for freezes in these crucial last three


*- The Beta freeze is lifted, but FeatureFreeze[1] is still in effect. *Please

* don't forget to file your freeze exception requests if you're looking to

* have non-bugfix changes go in before the final release!

*- The final freeze goes into effect this Thursday, April 15. *After this

* date, all changes to the archive must be manually approved by a member of

* the release team. *Don't expect feature freeze exceptions to be granted

* after this date! *The focus will instead be on fixing critical bugs so

* that we can have a solid 10.04 LTS release.

*- For packages in universe that aren't seeded in any of the Ubuntu flavors,

* this final freeze is nominal; packages must be manually accepted by the

* archive admins, but no additional approval is required. *This means that

* if you *are* trying to get a package in that needs a FeatureFreeze

* exception, it's important that you get release team approval *first*,

* because the archive admins are not expected to check for an exception

* approval before accepting these packages.

*- We do need to have a cutoff for these packages as well, so that they all

* have a chance to build before the archive is closed for release. *The

* hard cutoff for these universe packages will be April 26; you should plan

* to have your changes uploaded before this date, since any last-minute

* rush on the queue risks us rejecting some packages to avoid overloading

* the builders.

And remember that, since this is a long-term supported (LTS) release, there

are ample opportunities for further bugfixes after the final release by way

of the SRU process[2]. *Point releases for Ubuntu and Kubuntu LTS will be

made at roughly six-month intervals, with the first expected in July 2010 to

address any critical issues not identified or fixed in time for the 10.04

LTS release.
