Milestone freezes
(*) Beta and Final freezes are in effect from 00:00 UTC of the freeze day. The last stable push is conducted at this time for the milestone.

Because we integrate upstream software with phenomenal rate of change every release, Fedora milestones are never certain. We balance getting releases to our users with making those releases reliably high-quality, and so follow a middle path between "release when it's ready" and "release on specific dates". We plan to release on the "Preferred target" dates listed above, or if the Go/No-Go meeting decides we're not ready, on the "Target #1" dates. See the Fedora Release Life Cycle for details.

Detailed Schedules

Schedule adjustment
For any requests regarding Fedora schedule, go to Fedora Schedule Pagure Issue Tracker and file an issue or contact the current Schedule Wrangler (Jan Kurik at the moment). Requested changes might need coordination with other Fedora teams.
