Hard Feature Freeze starts now for edk2-stable202011


Hi, all

  Today, we enter into Hard Feature Freeze phase until edk2-stable202011 tag is created at 2020-11-27. In this phase, there is no feature to be pushed. The critical bug fix is still allowed. So far, I know two security patches need to catch this stable tag. They both passed code review before HFF. If no objection, Laszlo will merge them for this stable tag.


 https://edk2.groups.io/g/devel/message/67708 Security fix: possible heap corruption with LzmaUefiDecompressGetInfo

 https://edk2.groups.io/g/devel/message/67706 MdeModulePkg/Core/Dxe: limit FwVol encapsulation section recursion


  If the patch is sent after Hard Feature Freeze, and plans to catch this stable tag, please add edk2-stable202011 key words in the patch title and BZ, and also cc to Tianocore Stewards, then Stewards can give the comments.


Below is edk2-stable202011 tag planning.
