Sometime in the last 24 hours, our internal alarms should have all gone off and told us that Eoan final freeze is upon us, and we're headed into the final stretch toward the Ubuntu 19.10 release next week.
The current uploads in the queue will be reviewed and either accepted or rejected as appropriate by pre-freeze standards, but anything from here on should fit two broad categories: 1) Release critical bugs that affect ISOs, installers, or otherwise can't be fixed easily post-release. 2) Bug fixes that would be suitable for post-release SRUs, which we may choose to accept, reject, or shunt to -updates for 0-day SRUs on a case-by-case basis. This second case should have SRU-style bugs filed with the appropriate template, referenced in changelog. For unseeded packages that aren't on any media or in any supported sets, it's still more or less a free-for-all, but do take care not to upload changes that you can't readily validate before release. That is, ask yourself if the current state is "good enough", compared to the burden of trying to fix all the bugs you might accidentally be introducing with your shiny new upload. We will shut down cronjobs and spin some RC images late Friday or early Saturday once the archive and proposed-migration have settled a bit, and we expect everyone with a vested interest in a flavour (or two) and a few spare hours here and there to get to testing to make sure we have another uneventful release next week. Last minute panic is never fun. On behalf of the Ubuntu Release Team, ... Adam Conrad  What? No alarm for you? Yeah, me neither. I suggest we complain. -- ubuntu-devel-announce mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-devel-announce
