It is probably better, in general, to let the RMs decide on a freeze
date, and make special exceptions for packages that are stuck in NEW, if
they choose, rather than to keep pushing back the freeze.

Of course, depending on when the actual freeze occurs, and how quickly
NEW is processed (which seems to be going more quickly now), this point
may be completely moot anyways.
