Well, it has to be frozen sometime...:-)

At least, I really suggest identifying changes that do *not* affect
translations (such as style changes or spelling errors) and try to
coordinate some unfuzzy actions on translations.

Otherwise, the delay will be *very* short.

Anyway, I thought the deadline was yesterday, which explains why I was
so suprised and angry when I discovered so many changes and additions.
