Hi All,

The VTK team has finalized the 4.6 branch date to be next Friday, March
26th, to coincide with the ParaView branch. Please be aware that we are
going to lock CVS HEAD on Tuesday March 23rd for final Dashboard Greening.
If you have any more additions/fixes for 3.8 please get them checked in as
soon as possible. Patches will be accepted for Dashboard fixes while the
lock is in place.

Thank you all for your cooperation.
