Bits from the Release Team

Julien Cristau sent an update on Release Team activities, announcing the start of the final stage of the freeze. This basically means that from now on, there will be an even stricter policy on the changes that can be uploaded (only fixes for release critical bugs will be accepted) and that the Release Team will start to apply a specific usertag (wheezy-will-remove) to mark packages that will be removed from the upcoming stable release if their RC bugs aren't fixed.
