Got rid of my Liquorix kernels this morning so I can file legit bug reports without rebooting first :)

Bits from the Release Team: bookworm in hard freeze

https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-a ... 00004.html

Hi all,

According to schedule, we have frozen bookworm a bit more
(2023-03-12). This means that we are one step closer to the release of
bookworm. Like mentioned before we expect everyone to follow the
freeze policy [1]. This means that from now on key packages [2] and
packages without significant autopkgtest coverage need to be unblocked
by the release team to be able to migrate from unstable to testing. If
you need to request an unblock, check that your request is in line
with the freeze policy and use $(reportbug release.debian.org) in
order to get the meta data correct and get the template that helps us
get the right information.

Note that packages that are not on the key-packages list, with
non-superficial autopkgtests that succeed on all architectures and
don't cause regressions will migrate without an unblock after 20
days. If you're unsure about the current migration status of your
package, you can check it at [3].

Now is a good time to help testing installations [4] and upgrades to
find as many issues as possible. There's still a bunch of RC bugs [5],
so fixing those helps a lot too.

Please also remember to file bugs against the release-notes pseudo
package if you know of issues that deserve being mentioned in the
release notes. We welcome reports that include a proposed text or
merge requests on salsa [6], but even if you can only point us at
issues that's already appreciated.

On behalf of the Release Team,

[6] https://salsa.debian.org/ddp-team/release-notes/
Typo perfectionish.

@donald Thanks for the update!

I've been watching and reading daily throughout the Debian site for updates on Bookworm. Of course the first place I see updated information about hard freeze is here :) And I am happy it is going well :)
