Fedora Linux 40 Final Freeze

Hi all,

Today, 2024-04-02, is an important day on the Fedora Linux 40 schedule
[1], with significant cut-offs.

Today we have the Final Freeze [2] which starts at 14:00 UTC. This means
that only packages that fix accepted blocker or freeze exception bugs
[3][4][5] will be marked as 'stable' and included in the Final composes.
Other builds will remain in updates-testing until the Final release is
approved, at which point the Final freeze is lifted and packages can
move to the 'updates' repository. Pending updates will be pushed before
the final release as zero-day updates.

Regards,
Samyak Jain
