Soft Feature Freeze starts now for edk2-stable202011
We will enter into Soft Feature Freeze phase. In this phase, the feature
under review will not be allowed to be pushed. The feature passed review can
still be merged. Now, most planning features have been merged. One remaining
feature: Add the VariablePolicy feature
(https://edk2.groups.io/g/devel/message/67146) have been passed code review.
I will merge it on next Monday. Another feature: Disable the deprecated MD5
and SHA1 support (https://edk2.groups.io/g/devel/message/67359 patch V4) has
been sent for the review. The review is expected to be finished soon. So, I
still plan to catch this feature in this table tag.
The patch review can continue without break in edk2 community. If the patch
is sent before Soft Feature Freeze, and plans to catch this stable tag, the
patch contributor need reply to his patch and notify edk2 community. If the
patch is sent after Soft Feature Freeze, and plans to catch this stable tag,
please add edk2-stable202011 key words in the patch title and BZ, so the
community know this patch target and give the feedback.
