I think the conclusion we can draw from this "incident" (which has been solved thanks to the good will of both parties) is that real life discussions, or at least IRC ones, should better prepare such freeze exception requests, yes. I don't think that Raphaël is arrgoant the way you describe it and the reaction he had was probably more drawn by some kind of frustration after a moment where the dpkg maintenance team had to face serious social issues (the hijack incident) and some stress was involved. I have a deep respect for both Raphaël, Guillem and other dpkg team members as well as Luk, you (aba) and all release team folks and I am very thankful to all of you for solving this issue the best way you could.
