This past week Debian 11 “Bullseye” embarked on its hard freeze in gearing up for release later this year. One month after beginning the Bullseye soft freeze, Debian 11 is now under a hard freeze. For the hard freeze, key packages and packaging lacking autopkgtest support are treated as if in a full freeze. Non-key packages with Autopkgtest support are treated as if in the soft freeze still. Autopkgtest is the Debian integrated solution for running automatic package acceptance/conformance testing.
