Debian 11.0 "Bullseye" Is Very Close To Release - Now Under A Full Freeze

Following the soft freeze and hard freeze, Debian 11 "Bullseye" is now under a full freeze ahead of its official Debian 11 stable release.

The full freeze marks the period shortly before the actual release. Packages wanting to get into Bullseye now need a manual review by the release team to proceed.

Debian 10's full freeze began in March 2019 while they released in July. Or with Debian 9 the full freeze was in February 2017 with then releasing that June. So we'll see how long it takes before Debian 11 gets a formal release date but more than likely will be in the next three months or so.

More details on the full freeze for Debian 11 via the mailing list.
