If I am reading your (big) changelogs correctly, you are (amongst other
things) switching patch-system to quilt, and package new upstream
versions - This is a big no-no for the release team during the freeze
(see [1]) which we have had since June [2]. 

This might lower the chances of getting a DD to sponsor your packages
during the freeze.
