As of a short while ago, groovy has entered the beta freeze, with a
goal of releasing Beta images sometime late Thursday. *From now until
the beta is released, please only upload updates for packages on any
release images if you /need/ to get them into the beta itself.* Please
hold off
with everything else until after we release on Thursday.

The queue freeze will last from now until final release in October,
which means that all seeded packages will now need a spot-check and
review in the queue from a release team member before they are let
into the archive.

As with the previous releases, we have a bot in place that will accept
uploads that are unseeded and don't affect images. Don't take this as
an open invitation to break Feature Freeze on those components, this
is just to reduce the burden on the release team, so we only review
uploads that need very serious consideration. If you find the bot is
blocking an upload that you think should have been auto-accepted, let
us know and we'll sort it out.

We will be spinning a set of beta candidates most probably tomorrow
morning EU time, after the last few changes have migrated into groovy
(one of which is the kernel). We then encourage people to do ASAP for
their favourite flavour(s) as they come off the line.

Happy bug-hunting from now until the final release, and please do help
out and test ISOs, netboot, etc, where you can and let us know what's
broken in your environment(s).
