Where would be the right place to suggest that we add to the process a
reminder email about the incoming freeze for LTS point releases?
Something around the line of "if you want are working on some update
that really needs to be in and hasn't landed yet now is time to talk to
us about it/have the SRU going or you are going to miss the target".
I think it's not too much work and would be useful since it seems every
cycle we have some busy people who don't especially keep an eye on the
calendar and end up missing their landing target (do we have an
ics/something better than the wiki?)

Thanks, I should have clicked on that link from the schedule page :)

Btw that page mentions that base-files should have been updated some
weeks ago, seems that didn't happen (for whoever is handling that
milestone, hopefully they read u-d@)

Right, my main interrogation there is on what happens if those listed
bugs are not fixed? Currently 3 of those on the list seem to be in that
The gnome-shell one has been uploaded and is waiting for review in
unapproved (though the update is non trivial and it feels late, maybe
best to release it after the .2 image is built as a 0-day SRU), the
ubiquity ones seem not have a fix in the queue yet?
Do we delay the point release to get those fix in? Is anyone reaching
out to stakeholder to figure out what we do? Or do we just get the point
release out on schedule without those?

Great, thanks!
