abiword needs 2 days thanks to urgency abuse; I've set it up to 10 days:
it sounds ludicrous to let a major upstream version with significant
changes to the packaging migrate with urgency=high.

With that, we'll let the current meta-gnome2 + cheese + tasksel migrate,
and after that happens you can upload a new meta-gnome2 adapted to the
new abiword. Come by for a freeze exception once you make that upload.
