I'm happy to see things are moving forward on the technical issues now
(and I'm always way more happy to grant a freeze exceptions than to deny it).
I however also need to admit that I'm unhappy by the way Raphael tried
to get the exceptions. Receiving mails like "we know better than the
release team how the freeze rules should be" etc doesn't help in
discussing the technical side of things, and I would rather wish that
this doesn't happen again in future.
