Hi, all

We will enter into Soft Feature Freeze phase on 2021-11-08. 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-stable202111 key words in the patch title and BZ, so the community know this patch target and give the feedback.

Hi Liming,

The "Add SSDT PCI generator in DynamicTablesPkg" feature at
https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3682 won't be merged
before hard feature freeze, so I think it should be removed from the
list of proposed features,

Regards,

Pierre

Do we have a task or reminder to generate the UEFI Shell binaries for this release, and to upload ShellBinPkg.zip to Github?

https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3178 was opened but apparently never resolved, and the latest ShellBinPkg.zip is still from the edk2-stable202002 release.
