Oh, yes, sure. But is this point still valid? My perception is that the
current set of amendments is good enough. But if you were planning to
propose one yourself and haven't had time to do it yet, I am of course
fine to postpone reducing the discussion period, or even not reduce it
at all. It's just that I'm not aware of anyone planning to propose
additional amendments, or additional modifications to the current

However, I'd like to point out that there are good reasons to reduce the
discussion period.
There's currently a discussion in the TC about what to do during
upgrades from wheezy to jessie (#765803). It was raised in
<871tq189dh.fsf@rover.gag.com> that it could be better to wait for
the outcome of the present GR to vote on a TC resolution. And that TC
resolution could have an impact on the release.

Also, I think that everybody is quite tired of those discussions, and it
would be better to be able to focus on preparing the release rather
sooner than later.

Finally, given that the voting period won't be reduced, it would still
be possible to discuss the merits of each proposal during the beginning
of the voting period, if needed.
