I find funny, by the way, that my mail (mentioned by Denis) asked for
a string freeze...while I'm just in the process of asking for
templates changes for about all d-i modules which have some.. :-)
The debconf polishing process is, however, a probably important
work....for which I estimate I need a few days still (provided changes
are commited a few hours after they are suggested....it these changes
are accepted of course).
This heavily depends on my free time, however...which may vary quite
