OK, I think we can finish tagging without you doing it.  It's better to 
have a 2nd set of eyes on the packages anyway.  As of this message, 
there are 60 packages left to tag: 28 gnome, 22 lxqt, 3 networking, 6 
server, and lxdm.

The only thing I need from you is ticket #6972 (Fix starting X).

The only other tickets are Plasma5 which I will be working on tonight 
and the bind security update.

Agree.  Lets keep the freeze for gnome and lxqt.
