Just a quick note that git main is now FROZEN for new features (*).

This is in order to let things settle down and focus our attention on
stabilising, bug-fixing and sorting out blocker bugs for the upcoming
1.22 release.

It will probably still be okay to add a little new property here or a
small piece of library API there, but new plugins, elements, libraries,
or components should really wait for the next cycle once we're feature
frozen. Same for any other intrusive changes or major refactorings.

During the feature freeze any new features should be signed off by your
friendly release managers.

If there's anything you feel should really go into 1.22, please bring
it up on IRC, add a comment in gitlab, or set the ticket milestone to

A first 1.22 release candidate is expected around mid-December,
depending on how we get on with sorting out any remaining blockers.
