In preparation for the 6.2 release, the ports tree will be frozen from
October 10. No commits will be allowed without explicit portmgr
approval. We hope we can keep the freeze short and go into slush after
one week. The tree will be completely unfrozen after the release is
announced. For the full schedule, see the release schedule
http://www.freebsd.org/releases/6.2R/schedule.html (updated after the
next rebuild).

As always, only commit that fix existing breakage will be allowed during
the freeze and we encourage everyone will help fix as many ports as possible
for this release. For more information about what kinds of commits are
allowed during which period, please see the portmgr policies webpage at

On behalf of portmgr,
