Upcomming Deadline / Complete Freeze2009-01-20

There will be a complete freeze for final preparations before release, beginning Jan 25. This means that everything should be complete before this time. This only applies directly to the "Trunk".

All tickets should be closed, or migrated to the next milestone by Jan 24. No changes will be allowed to the "Trunk" from Jan 25 - Feb 1. Any modifications made that would not be classified as 'security related', 'critical-stoppers', or 'major fixes'(fixes would be defined as something that is broken), will be reverted. Any changes that can not be classified as above, should be saved to be Commited starting back again on Feb 2.

This Freeze period will be used to update to the same revision that is to be used for release, as well as allowing for a testing period, that does not involve any changes. In the case any major problems are found they will be fixed, and updated to be included with the release.

Please note this only applies to the "Trunk" /trunk/, anything in /branches/ may continue to be changed in a normal fashion during this time.

Please be aware and notice that the freeze is in effect now.
