IF you had a set of MATE packages all ready to go and you were asking
for a freeze exception for them, then the release team would be in a
position to consider an exception. But there are no such packages.
We're arguing hypotheticals (as we often do on -devel, to my eternal
dismay). There's still a lot of work to do in order to get MATE ready
I'm sorry, it's simply too late for wheezy. The last thing we want to
do is delay the release at this point. Long drawn out freezes are
horrendously demoralising for everyone. It's important we get wheezy
out in a timely fashion.
