My understanding is that the hard freeze is basically a "hands off"
for 3.10.0. We could consider 3.10.0 as being tagged for release as of
the freeze, and it's now just in a pending state while we put out
calls for testing.

I haven't seen any fixed guidelines on what we'd allow in during this
time, but my 2c is that we should only let in absolutely mission
critical, life-threatening stuff. Everything else needs to wait till

On this note, for the hard freeze period I've set the github master
branch to use the same branch restrictions as we apply to our LTR
branch (no direct pushes, PRs require all passing tests + 1
non-submitter review).*



* I'm quite tempted to "forget" to set this back after hard freeze ends ;)
