[Test-Announce] Fedora 34 bodhi activation point

Hi all,

Today's an important day on the Fedora 34 schedule[1], with several significant cut-offs. First of all today is the Bodhi activation point [2]. That means that from now all Fedora 34 packages must be submitted to updates-testing and pass the relevant requirements[3] before they will be marked as 'stable' and moved to the fedora repository.

Today is also the Alpha freeze[4]. This means that only packages which fix accepted blocker or freeze exception bugs[5][6] will be marked as 'stable' and included in the Alpha composes. Other builds will remain in updates-testing until the Alpha release is approved, at which point the Alpha freeze is lifted and packages can move to 'stable' as usual until the Beta freeze.

Today is also the Software String freeze[7], which means that strings marked for translation in Fedora-translated projects should not now be changed for Fedora 34.

Finally, today is the 'completion deadline' Change Checkpoint[8], meaning that Fedora 34 Changes must now be 'feature complete or close enough to completion that a majority of its functionality can be tested'.
