I kept waiting to see if it got mentioned on Planet Debian, but no. 

Transition block Jan 12 ish.  Soft freeze later.

Ferdinand Thomas is very helpful, balanced and Debian savvy. 

There is always google translate to convert from Deutsch - German to your language of choice. 

To see what will be  stranded for transitions, as always

This only affects Sparky5     Sparky 4 users are not affected.

If any  using Sparky5 are wondering why the upates have slowed, - we entered the "soft freeze" for Buster.  It went from the standard 5 day wait to transition from sid to testing  (Sparky5) for Debian upgrades to 10 days which started on Feb 12.  No more NST (new shiny toys)  for awhile now. 

It was nice to see the LXQT 0.14 slide in under the wire and also the changes in pcmanfm-qt. Peace out.
