The current sup-mail fails to run with 1.9.1.

Probably so. There are many changes and I have transitioned almost
all sup-mail's dependencies to the new ruby policy (so they run under
Ruby 1.9.1). It happens that ruby-rubymail was not uploaded until a few
days ago because of people's lack of time (IANADD).

It might be possible to make it all run under Ruby 1.8, I don't know. But I
would rather not go down that road when I now have gone through all the
trouble (quite much actually) to fix everything so it runs under Ruby 1.9.1.

Refrasing my original (still unanswered) question: Will whatever was
uploaded to NEW before the freeze be processed or was that already
frozen before the freeze?
