Freeze is a trying time for lots of bits of Debian and definitely for
the ftp masters. The problem is your question about when they can look
at your package revolves around when with the next version of Debian be
released, and we all know the answer to that is "when it's ready".
If there is no real changes between the versions, I'd wait until the
one sitting in the queue has made it through. If it is something
important I'd update the pending package.
It can be frustrating because you've done all this work and then..
nothing, but look on the bright side; you're not one of those poor ftp
