Support freeze/blackout schedules for deployments
With an increased release cadence, it would be nice of Octopus supported the idea of creating freeze/blackout calendars that would either (by setting) outright prevent deployments (possibly allowing with authorization by a particular team) or display a warning that the deployment is taking place during a freeze period.
Ideally we would be able to associate these freeze calendars with projects or project groups, specify whether it is a warning when deploying or prevents deployment, and in the latter case which team or teams would be able to authorize bypassing the freeze.
Agreed. We have regular blackouts oriented around the end/beginning of the company's fiscal quarters. Any feature should be allow a custom recurrence similar to a recurring calendar event/duration.
