I suspect that by the time everything migrates, we're probably going to be
in full RC-bug-only freeze, since that's imminent now.  I don't think any
of those updates are really RC-level, so at the moment at least I don't
think it's warranted.

Yeah, that sounds fine.  We can reconsider if someone files a bug
specifically asking for it.

Thank you for all your work on the packages!  Looks like everything will
be in very good shape for squeeze.
