Fedora 24 Alpha Freeze announced

The Fedora project announced freezing of Fedora 24 Alpha. This means no further updates will be added to Fedora 24 Alpha release. All new updates will be added to updates-testing repository and will be added to stable repository after performing necessary testing activities.

Initially Fedora 24 Alpha freeze was planned on 16th of February. It was moved forward to meet basic quality requirements. Fedora 24 Alpha is expected to be available on 22nd of March.

From official announcement regarding Fedora 24 Alpha Freeze:
Today is also the Alpha freeze]. This means that only packages which fix accepted blocker or freeze exception bugs will be marked as 'stable' and included in the Alpha composes. Other builds will remain in updates-testing until the Alpha release is approved, at which point the Alpha freeze is lifted and packages can move to 'stable' as usual until the Beta freeze. Today is also the Software String freeze, which means that strings marked for translation in Fedora-translated projects should not now be changed for Fedora 24.
