R14 hard freeze for RC1

As you can probably see from the activity on the trinity-commits list
there have been multiple updates to both the common cmake/admin modules
and the icons across the entire tree over the past week or so.

This ongoing activity has forced essentially a full archive rebuild for
Debian/Ubuntu, our primary supported distributions.

I am announcing a ***hard freeze*** for R14 to allow the Debian/Ubuntu
rebuild to start generating our RC1 package sets.  There are currently
three open bug reports blocking Bug 2014; patches that do not relate to
those three reports must be discussed on this list and approved by me
before being committed to GIT.  Additionally, only patches that do not
affect the common cmake/admin modules will even be considered at this

After the RC1 rebuilds are complete this soft freeze will thaw to accept
patches for bugs discovered before and during RC1 testing.  This thaw will
be short lived to allow time for RC2 rebuilds, so all patches should be
ready within a week after RC1 release.

Each rebuild cycle takes around 2-3 weeks due to the multitude of
distributions supported.  If no common cmake/admin modules are updated for
RC2 the resultant rebuild will take less time.

Onwards to the much-fabled R14 release! :-)
