I do have the poll mechanism in an usable shape now, I've thus far
just missed the time to make a proper announcement on how to request
me to initiate polls. If people wants to do that I've no problem
setting it up: interested people can just send me a draft ballot.

My *personal* opinion on this specific poll is, however, that the
release team is fully empowered to make the freeze date decision and
that they have also been sensible to complaints about the hurried
freeze. So, right now, I don't see the point of having it before they
actually publish their decision.
