FreeBSD 9.1 ports feature freeze

July 25, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

The FreeBSD 9.1 schedule has been published, http://www.freebsd.org/releases/9.1R/schedule.html. Historically we have done a Feature Freeze at RC1, we are going to try do it with RC2 this time, tentatively scheduled for August 3, subject to schedule slippage.

At the time the the Release Engineering team announces RC2 is ready, we will then enforce “Feature Safe” commits only. This means no sweeping changes will be allowed, see http://www.freebsd.org/portmgr/implementation.html#sweeping_changes

Once portmgr@ is satisfied that the requisite packages are built to ship with FreeBSD 9.1, the ports tree will be re-opened for business.
