[Test-Announce] Fedora Linux 40 Bodhi updates-testing activation & Beta freeze

Hi all,

Today's an important day on the Fedora Linux f40 schedule [1], with
several significant cut-offs. First of all, today is the Bodhi
updates-testing activation point [2]. That means that from now all
Fedora Linux 40 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 Beta 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 Beta composes. Other builds will remain in
updates-testing until the Beta release is approved, at which point the
Beta freeze is lifted and packages can move to 'stable' as usual until
the Final 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 Linux 40.

Finally, today is the 'completion deadline' Change Checkpoint [8],
meaning that Fedora Linux f40 Changes must now be 'feature complete or
close enough to completion that a majority of its functionality can be
tested'. All tracking bugs should be on ON_QA state or later to reflect
