One up for the danish world domination team! Please welcome Søren Straarup to the ranks of the ports committers. tmclaugh and garga thought it was time to punish him for his activity in irc and plenty of patches to python and windowmaker related ports. Wish him luck!

Ports freeze for 6.2 starts October 10

September 17, 2006 by · Leave a Comment 

In preparation for the 6.2 release, the ports tree will be frozen from October 10. No commits will be allowed without explicit portmgr approval. We hope we can keep the freeze short and go into slush after one week. The tree will be completely unfrozen after the release is announced. For the full schedule, see the release schedule.

As always, only commit that fix existing breakage will be allowed during the freeze and we encourage everyone will help fix as many ports as possible for this release. For more information about what kinds of commits are allowed during which period, please see the portmgr policies webpage.

Just in time for the ports freeze, sem proposed to punish Stanislav Sedov for his many PRs, especially about ruby, ocaml and, if that isn’t enough, e17. Please welcome Stanislav to the ranks of the ports committers, and let’s hope he has enough patience during the freeze :)
