The end of December is probably fine as well. Try not to aim for
January. The variable factor is how long it takes to package and upload
it. In theory, you could get away with releasing mid-January but that
would be cutting it very fine and requires the packaging to be done very

The hard freeze is on the 5th February. You need 10 days for the package
to migrate to testing and I would say at least 10 days to handle any
unforeseen RC bugs in the new version. This gives the 15th January as
the last day you can upload something and be "comfortable" it will get
into the next release.
