This doesn't match the DevelFreezePolicy page.

    Note that ignoring the freeze process can lead to your package not
    getting tagged for the freeze tag, and thus not pushed to rawhide and
    the final release.

What is the "final release" here? F8 Test1 final? Or F8 final?

Packagers must mail rel-eng and ask for a package to be tagged "f8-test1"
if they want the package to be included in F8 Test 1. But if they don't,
the package would appear in Rawhide after the freeze and hence would
enter f8-test2, and so on, and F8 final *automatically*.
