Hard Feature Freeze starts now for edk2-stable202205


Hi, all

  Today, we enter into Hard Feature Freeze phase until edk2-stable202205 tag is created at 2022-05-27. Tag edk2-stable202205-rc1 (708620d29db89d03e822b8d17dc75fbac865c6dc) has been created for evaluation. In this phase, there is no feature to be pushed. The critical bug fix is still allowed.


  If the patch is sent after Hard Feature Freeze, and plans to catch this stable tag, please add edk2-stable202205 key words in the patch title and BZ, and also cc to Tianocore Stewards, then Stewards can give the comments.


Below is edk2-stable202205 tag planning (https://github.com/tianocore/tianocore.github.io/wiki/EDK-II-Release-Planning)
