Subject: [Tails-dev] Debian derivatives census: Debian 11 (bullseye) freeze dates announced
Hi all,

I note that some Debian derivatives are based on Debian stable. The
Debian release team have recently announced that the staged freezes of
testing will be start on 2021-01-12 in preparation for the upcoming
release of Debian 11 (bullseye).


This means that if you have not already started, you will need to
prepare the schedule for the migration of your stable release to be
based on Debian 11 (bullseye) instead the current base of Debian buster
or earlier. Once you have switched to bullseye, please update your
census page to reflect that if needed. Please also check that your
census page reflects what your distro is currently based on.

Those of you who are willing to help finalise the release of bullseye
are encouraged to commit developer time to fixing the release critical
bugs, organise bug squashing parties and to test upgrades from Debian
stable in order to find more issues that might need to be fixed.


Please direct any questions you have to the derivatives list or IRC
channel. We strongly encourage you to join both of these.
