Given that the security infrastructure has now been implemented, I fail
to see the comparison here.  It is always possible that unforeseen
problems will delay the release -- but unforeseen problems from one
release are by no means a predictor for future releases.

I wonder if you haven't misread the email.  The time between the base
freeze and the freeze of the rest of the archive is 22 days.  What's
freezing on August 2 is base; this part of the freeze has been pushed
back to allow further pending RC bugfixes in.
