Glance Newton rc1 is available, if you did not get a chance . This
also means that all further Newton specific fixes need to first merge in
master and then backported to stable/newton branch (only stable maint
team has core rights on that branch ). The master branch is open for
Ocata development including new features, doc fixes, string fixes, etc.
So, those who haven't already please make it a point to lift up your
(cores') -2s/-Ws  blocks on the reviews you've helped stopped during
the Newton-3, RC1 phase or any Newton phase for that matter. This is the
time we need to start evaluating the potential of those reviews for
Please NOTE: If an important (for those concerned) bug/feature is being
asked to move ahead and if the -2/-W by cores are not lifted up by
*EOD-September-19th*, we may encourage the developers to abandon that
review and propose an alternate one. And for all other reviews with
-2/-W by core(s) & are not abandoned, we will wait until
*EOD-September-30th* after which either they will be either abandoned or
the developer will be asked to propose alternative if -2/-W is not
lifted. So, if you think that your -2/-W still counts (irrespective of
your earlier comment), please comment elaborately *again* on that review
so that everyone can be aware of your stance and help better resolve the
situation for everyone involved.
Thank you for your cooperation.
 In some cases, cores have chosen to -W instead of a -2 to block that
patch until a specific release date. This is to help review the patch
and indicate if it's okay to move forward after the release date i.e. a
core may give a +2 to indicate that the patch is technically okay but -W
it, to wait process wise. The block is interpretation based on cores'
opinions so let's not have more opinions/process on how /you/ think the
block should be.
