 > awesome! when is schedule to release to prod?

 There's no schedule.  The number of issues found so far is low.  Very low.
 Suspiously low.  I guess not too many people actually tested.

 Your question about where to find the packages suggests that you didn't
 see the [https://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-
 user/2021-February/048137.html posting] on the qgis user mailing list
 (mentioned in the
 [https://twitter.com/JuergenEFischer/status/1364259342137057282 QGIS 3.18
 release tweet]) or noticed the new installers on the
 [https://qgis.org/de/site/forusers/download.html QGIS download page]
 (mentioned in the
 [https://twitter.com/JuergenEFischer/status/1373923127852474369 QGIS
 3.18.1 release tweet]) either.

 AFAICT it's ready to flip the switch - well, there's currently nothing
 that prevents anyone to try and update an existing installation from the
 new repo.  And that will like break or at least leave a lot of cruft.  And
 that would be the default if we actually just move testing to the original

 We should probably just move the old repo to attic or something and rename
 testing to something else (ng? v2? release? production?  your ad here?).
