List A is the 'unreviewed patches list', which, on Feature Freeze, would be 
'closed' ...

Feature Freeze would last until all Patches in List A are processed, whether 
that means going back to the Author for fixes/work, or gets committed to the 
source tree ...

Once List A is cleared off, then we dive into Beta, at which point in time only 
bug fixes would be applied ...
