Thanks for your concern, but don't worry: Since the rejection of Nodejs 
for Wheezy (in working condition for quite some time but stalled until 
days before freeze by a tech-ctte ruling), my hopes for getting anything 
done during freeze has been low.  But not lower than low.

Freeze != release.  We do not know if too late - it might be that bugfix 
need zero change to the package, and that release team treats that as

That rejection is indeed quite unfortunate.  My appreciation for midori 
is (half of) reason Jessie will not have a Debian Pure Blend for 
Designers: https://packages.qa.debian.org/d/debian-design.html

I do still have (low but existing) hope that that midori rejection is 
not a definitive indication for netatalk.  Release team explanation for 
rejecting Nodejs was lack of time in unstable, which arguably is similar 
for midori bugfix too, but might is not for netatalk bugfix.
