The Mitaka 3 milestone has passed, and we're on our way to preparing
release candidates. See Thierry's email  for details about the
artifacts produced for the milestone.
Project teams should be concentrating on finishing work for which
a feature freeze exception (FFE) was granted, and fixing release-critical
bugs before preparing the release candidates during week R-3. Any
FFE work not completed this week should be postponed to the next
The global requirements list is frozen. If you need to change a
dependency, for example to include a bug fix in one of our libraries
or an upstream library, please provide enough detail in the change
request to allow the requirements review team to evaluate the change.
User-facing strings are frozen to allow the translation team time
to finish their work.
The stable/mitaka branches for libraries will be created early
during R-4. After the branch is created, a patch will be submitted
to update the .gitreview file. If the project uses reno, another
patch will be submitted on master to add a mitaka-specific page to
the reno build. Please watch for those patches and prioritize
RC Target Week: R-3, Mar 14-18
