[OK, so winter doesn't quite mean freeze here in Pune but hey, y'all 
know what Im talking about right?!]


I am a day late in announcing this but 2.29 code freeze is now in 
effect.  Only patches allowed during this window until release 
(scheduled on 1 Feb 2019) are bug fixes or regressions.  Patches that 
have been approved till now need to get in asap as well, lets target end 
of this week for this.

Status of Release blockers:

I have reviewed all original release blockers, including a couple of 
additional ones that got added later but I couldn't get to all of them. 
As of now, the pending blockers do not look suitable for inclusion at 
this stage and so will be deferred to 2.30 development.

A couple of patch series in the release blockers need some minor rework; 
those also need to close asap, preferably within this week so as to not 
impact testing.

I will send out pot files for translations later this week as well.
