Hardy Heron open for uploads

The doors are now open for uploads to Hardy Heron, the next in the Ubuntu line of releases, due for release in the first half of 2008. The LINUX COMMUNITY is ready and waiting for your contributions to what is certain to be our best release yet!

In particular, help is needed to merge the many new versions of Debian packages waiting at . As the graph at [1] shows,the number of packages in need of a merge has been climbing steadily over the past couple of months while Gutsy was frozen, so it's time to work on bringing this number back down again for Hardy.

Naturally this means that Hardy will be a bit bumpy for a while as the many new changes take time to settle. In the event of a cabin depressurization, please remember to secure your own mask first before assisting other passengers. Otherwise, enjoy the ride towards Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, and thanks for flying with the Hardy Heron!
