I have gotten several (private) follow-ups asking whether 2014 is a typo
or not. Obviously, it did not help that there was a typo in the freeze
policy listing 2013 in some places (they should now all say 2014). So
We will freeze the 5th November 2014, which is about thirteen months
from now (i.e. next year).
