In one week, on Tuesday 2016-Aug-09, is an important day on the Fedora
25 schedule , with several significant cut-offs. First of all, it
is the Bodhi activation point . That means that from this day all
Fedora 25 packages must be submitted to updates-testing and pass the
relevant requirements  before they will be marked as 'stable' and
moved to the fedora repository.
At the same time there 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.
Finally, at the same day is also the Software String freeze , which
means that strings marked for translation in Fedora-translated
projects should not be changed for Fedora 25.
