HEADS UP: Ports freeze for 5.3-RELEASE on September 3

This is just an early warning to let you know the ports tree will be
frozen _for two weeks_ starting on September 3, 2004 2300 UTC.  This
will be done in preparation for 5.3-RELEASE.  The release schedule has
been updated to reflect the various ports-related dates.

The reason for the extra week of frost is to weed out as many GCC 3.4.2
problems and other architecture build failures as possible.  We will
also be using the new approver CVS code to enforce the "no unauthorized
commits" policy.  Therefore, committers don't have to worry about
getting fed to Beastie or sacrificed to "*BSD is dying" trolls on
Slashdot...this time.
