Communication tip for the future : when such a policy change happens (this is
a policy change, there were more exceptions in the past before package freeze,
for leaf packages without weird deps and post/pre scripts and little impact),
let's try to highlight it *before*.
There was a communication effort to announce the freeze: I read freeze
announce, was present at the last packager meeting. However it didn't struck
me, it all looked like the usual end of release cycle, with their common-sense
A message such as "contrarily as what happened in the past" (this is the
important part, highlight a *change*), "there will be no exception even for
leaf non-critical packages, so that you all focus on bugfixes, as we know that
otherwise you will not fix bugs and continue updating your packages".
