ports feature freeze now in effect

February 15, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

In preparation for 7.3-RELEASE, the ports tree is now in feature freeze.

Normal upgrade, new ports, and changes that only affect other branches are allowed without prior approval but with the extra Feature safe: yes tag in the commit message. Any commit that is sweeping, i.e. touches a large number of ports, infrastructural changes, commits to ports with unusually high number of dependent ports, and any other commit that requires the rebuilding of many packages is not allowed without prior explicit approval from portmgr after that date.

When in doubt, please do not hesitate to contact portmgr.
