Ports tree frozen TBD -- Only approved commits will be permitted to the ports/ tree during the freeze.
doc/ tree slush TBD -- Non-essential commits to the en_US.ISO8859-1/ subtree should be delayed from this point until after the doc/ tree tagging, to give translation teams time to synchronize their work.
