Not talking with the large packaging and infrastructure teams before making such
a decision and just deciding a fixed date is a complete failure of the release
team. Its the minimum we should be able to expect from them. Fixed and regular
freeze dates are nice to have, but not without finding a proper way and date to
begin. And making Ubuntu happy is *not* more important than the wishes of our
infrastructure teams or the KDE and Gnome teams.

If you really want to force a freeze in December, don't expect any help from me.
Probably a good time to find a new distribution then... or to start a GR. Not
sure what is better for my nerves.
