Yes, there were unstable uploads allowed during the last few releases.
Their might be a few days where unstable uploads are not allowed, but
it is a very short amount of time.  Sometimes it was problematic when
a new library was uploaded which prevented one of my packages from
being compiled.  Personally, I prefer to stay with frozen for as long
as possible.
