Dear Paul,

Than you for your patch.

I am not sure what is meant by "overriding the urgency".  The Release team can
directly control the migration time for a package, but this is not exactly done
by replacing the urgency by another value, nor by ignoring it altogether.  See

Perhaps your patch would gain by being a bit more precise.  Also, the urgency might
be used for other purposes than the transitions to Testing (like determining
the priority for autobuilding ?)

By thw way, is the sentence "Those delays may be doubled during a freeze" still
acccurate ?  Otherwise, this bug may be the opportunity to remove it.

Have a nice Sunday,
