netconf & lenny: possible freeze exception?

Hi release team,

With the planned freeze in July but it looks like I won't be able to
get netconf into testing before August - unless of course a GSoC
student or other people help out. Unfortunately, this means that
netconf could not be made default in Debian before lenny+3. I'd much
rather be able to aim for lenny+2, though.

I would thus like to ask whether it would be possible to get
a tentative freeze exception.

netconf is a new package without reverse dependencies. In as such,
I cannot see any technical reasons against a freeze exception, but
I may of course be wrong.

Having already talked to Andi on IRC, I understand that you have
reservations about making exceptions during the freeze. This is why
I bring up the issue now already, in the hope that it won't need an
"exception" anymore by the time August comes around.
