Ah, I see -- well I wasn't really being confused about that, you seem to
be trying to give the impression that nodejs not making into the freeze
is the blocker, whereas buddycloud is currently uninstallable due to the
Breaks: from nodejs, thus requiring a new version of buddycloud-server
to be uploaded ... or were you hoping to sneak in nodejs, then have an
RC bug reported against buddycloud-server to justify it getting in too?

I cannot see that happening, but if you want I'll cheerfully report the
RC bug for you now :-)

Cheers, Phil.
