Of freezes &c



So now we're past Beta, I see this kind of thing popping up again:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=959677#c35

"Nice! If anybody wants a patch for this to be included in the final
release, please propose this as a final blocker."

Please don't abuse the project-wide blocker process in this way. The
blocker process is for tracking bugs that must be fixed before the
release. It is not a todo list or a private freeze exception list.

The official freeze date for F19 Final is 2013-06-18, it is listed as
"Final Change Deadline" at
http://fedorapeople.org/groups/schedule/f-19/f-19-devel-tasks.html . So
far as the Fedora project is concerned, there is no freeze until that
time.

If the anaconda team wants to apply a private freeze to anaconda changes
for the entire post-Beta period it is your right to do so, however, you
should either come up with your own mechanism for tracking exceptions to
your private freeze or at least work with other teams to decide how
existing mechanisms can sensibly be applied to your private freeze, not
simply decide to start using the project-wide release blocker tracking
mechanism as a private freeze break list.
