We are trying to track down the duplication and make canonical linkings.

The branch freeze happens at the branch event, which is a week after
Feature freeze.  It's no longer an "Alpha Freeze" per se, because the
tree remains "frozen" even after alpha.

Originally we thought we'd branch at feature freeze, but then that would
mean we froze at feature freeze which was counter productive to moving
feature freeze a week earlier to allow last minute integration work to
happen unhindered.

Unfortunately we're going to have some rough times with documentation as
most of the documentation in the wiki isn't updated for how things work
with no frozen rawhide, but we're working on it.  If you find more
places that need updating, please add them to
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/No_frozen_rawhide_announce_plan  thanks!
