Soft Feature Freeze will start on 2022-02-07 for edk2-stable202202
We will enter into Soft Feature Freeze phase on 2022-02-07. In this phase, the feature under review will not be allowed to be pushed. The feature passed review can still be merged.
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-stable202202 key words in the patch title and BZ, so the community know this patch target and give the feedback.
