I'm not going to manage to get uploads done to Debian in the next
couple of days and anyway, as I've said, they'll be held in the
incoming queue until libsword7 is approved so won't be any help for

So have you guys made sure that packages will get picked up from the ppa ok?

otoh if the packages are appropriate for Edubuntu we might be able to
get them in a wee bit later despite the freeze ;) Saying that, I don't
want to use Jordans time if we can help it as Edubuntu is important

All the best,

Dear Developers,

A gentle reminder to all that Feature Freeze is scheduled for this Thursday,
February 19.

This means that all of your Jaunty-targeted specs should be either at Beta
Available or Postponed by the end of day on Wednesday.  Please make sure to
update the status of your specs.  You should check that packages you care
about are at a version suitable for release.

Requests for freeze exceptions for main should be filed as bugs in
Launchpad against the relevant package (or just "Ubuntu" if the
package is not available yet). Once the bug is filed and the necessary
information is available, please subscribe the ubuntu-release team.

For universe, the motu-release team will approve new packages and upstream
version freeze exceptions between now and the Beta.

The MOTU release team have also delegated responsibility for a number of
package areas to their domain experts:

 - Kubuntu: Jonathan Riddell (Riddell)
 - Mythbuntu: Mario Limonciello (superm1)
 - Xubuntu: Cody Sommerville (cody-sommerville)
 - Mozilla Team: Alexander Sack (asac)
 - Ubuntu Studio:
  Luis de Bethencourt GuimerĂ¡ (luisbg)
  Cory Kontros (_MMA_)
 - Ubuntu Destkop: Sebastien Bacher (seb128)
 - Ubuntu Netbook, Ubuntu MID: Steve Kowalik (StevenK)
 - Ubuntu Server: Scott Kitterman (ScottK)
 - Edubuntu: Jordan Mantha (LaserJock)

If you need a freeze exception for a universe package that falls into one of
these categories, you can coordinate directly with the respective delegates,
there is no need to subscribe motu-release.

Please see this wiki page for full details on freeze exception requests:
