Probably not.

For clarity, I'm not complaining about anything, I'm just asking.

Yes, I know about the relaxed rules, and no, I'm not saying it's a
surprise to me. However, I do think that having a freeze just _before_ a
time period where many people are expected to have more time for Debian
is not ideal; that's why I'm asking if this was intentional.

If it's not, I'd like to ask that you at least consider not doing things
this way next time around. If it was, in fact, intentional, I'd be
interested in your reasoning.
