Xen tree is going to branch at RC7. I don't want to branch when
master != staging, so please avoid committing new patches to staging now
to let master catch up with staging. Another announcement will be made
when the moratorium is lifted.

4.10 is now branched off from unstable.

I have set a baseline osstest run off (116747) by hand.  (osstest will
only start regularly testing the 4.10 branches when the osstest commit
that adds the 4.10 branch makes it through the push gate, so there
will be a delay unless I force push it.)

I have pushed to staging-4.10 the commit to disable debug.  (As
discussed above, this will not receive a test run immediately.)

Both branches can now be committed to without interfering with the
branching process.  However, both branches are currently still owned
by Julien as Release Manager.

Julien, please advise committers what kinds of commits each branch is
open for, if any.

All patches for 4.10 will still require a release-acked. Those patches should be first merged in staging, then backport to staging-4.10. We are planning to release in about a week.

Regarding staging, it is now re-opened. Although please be mindful when committing in staging to avoid diverging to much and making difficult backport.
