The Sulphur is getting cold.... The Beta freeze is one week away (March 4th)! What does this mean for you? Beta freeze is a blocking freeze, that is when we freeze, rawhide will compose from the freeze set, not from any future builds done in the devel/ cvs branch. If you need a build tagged for the beta, you'll need to mail rel-eng fedoraproject org with your build and reasoning for including it in the beta. See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ReleaseEngineering/Overview#head-7dfffd8d508d35c931d4b7cc519fce1b00019e4c for details. Once the Beta has been composed, rawhide will open up again and pick up the builds that have been done since the freeze, and we'll march our way toward the final freeze. It is worth noting that the Beta freeze is also the Feature and String freezes for Fedora 9. After Beta release we'll start allowing pre-branching of packages for Fedora 9. This will allow maintainers to stabilize software in the F-9/ branch while continuing on future development in the devel/ branch. More on that later! -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- All my bits are free, are yours?
