Łukasz 'sil2100' Zemczak has announced that Ubuntu Linux 23.10 (Mantic Minotaur) is now in feature freeze.

Mantic Minotaur (to be 23.10) now in Feature Freeze

As per the release schedule, Mantic Minotaur is now in Feature Freeze.
Ideally, you will all now be focusing on bug fixing and not on getting new features into the release. However, if necessary, please follow the process for freeze exceptions:


As is the custom, packages that have been uploaded to mantic-proposed prior to the feature freeze deadline, but have gotten stuck there, remain candidates for fixing between now and release.

Remember that version strings don't matter for Feature Freeze. If you upload a new upstream release and it has no new features then you don't need an exception. If you add a debian/patch that adds a new feature, or enable one via build flags then you do. We care about the content of the archive, not about precisely how things got there.


Happy bug squashing!

On behalf of the release team,
