> Hi there,

> that we can roll out Beta 70 to a wider audience with confidence, we'd

> Some reminders for the soft code freeze period:
> Do:
> - Be ready to back out patches that cause crash spikes, new crashes,
> severe regressions
> - Monitor new regressions and escalate merge blockers
> - Support release management by prioritizing fixing of merge blockers
> Do Not:
> - Land a risky patch or a large patch
> - Land new features (that affects the current Nightly version) — be
> mindful that code behind NIGHTLY_BUILD or RELEASE_OR_BETA ifdefs can
> lead to unexpected CI results
> - Flip prefs that enable new Features that were untested in Nightly cycle
> - Plan to kick off new experiments that might impact a feature's merge
> readiness
> Please let us know if you have any questions/concerns.
