Dear Developers, As per the release schedule, Bionic is now in Feature Freeze.
Ideally you will all now be focusing on bug fixing and not on getting new features into the release. As is the custom, packages that have been uploaded to bionic-proposed prior to the feature freeze deadline, but have gotten stuck there, remain candidates for fixing between now and release. It's been a busy cycle, and there are quite a lot of transitions still in progress; the 822 packages waiting in bionic-proposed today is a far cry from the 110 package minimum at the end of the artful cycle. Please help wherever possible by resolving broken tests, uninstallable packages, and build failures; and please pay attention to existing versions of packages currently in bionic-proposed before uploading unrelated changes. http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-archive/proposed-migration/update_excuses.html And if you do want to seek an exception to land your cool new feature, then please follow the process: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FreezeExceptionProcess Remember that version strings don't matter for Feature Freeze. If you upload a new upstream release and it has no new features than you don't need an exception. If you add a debian/patch that adds a new feature, or enable one via build flags then you do. We care about the content of the archive, not about precisely how things got there. Happy bugfixing, -- Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
