Milestone freezes
(*) Beta and Final freezes are in effect from 00:00 UTC of the freeze day. The last stable push is conducted at this time for the milestone.

Because we integrate upstream software with phenomenal rate of change every release, Fedora milestones are never certain. We balance getting releases to our users with making those releases reliably high-quality, and so follow a middle path between "release when it's ready" and "release on specific dates". We plan to release on the target dates listed above, or if the Fedora_Program_Management/GoNoGoSOP Go/No-Go meeting decides we're not ready, on the rain dates. If the beta release is not ready even by the rain date, the final schedule will be pushed back correspondingly.
