As of now, mantic 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 the final release next month, 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 the 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 in the next 12 hours or so.  We
then encourage people to start testing 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 images, etc, where you can and let us know what's broken in your

As a reminder, the Beta images will appear on the ISO Tracker here:
