Sure, asking when unsure is something that makes sense, and that is
appreciated. For next time: whenever the release announce reaches
debian-devel-announce@, it's OK to push anything anywhere (to git
repositories, to the archive, etc.).

In this particular case, if you would have pushed, and if I needed to
re-upload debian-installer without your changes, I could have just
created a temporary stretch branch without it, so it wouldn't have been
the end of the world anyway. It's best to avoid running into this kind
of situations though. ;)

Even if the release announce is not ready yet, the image build has
finished and testing shows no major regressions, so we're going to
publish this set of images as Stretch Alpha 7. I've lifted the udeb
freeze some time ago; and you can feel free to push changes to git
repositories, even if the announce has not been published yet.
