I haven’t written a script either, but rather scanned our QA overview
page manually.  These packages need freeze exceptions to fix RC or
important (*) bugs:

| libcairo-ruby           487204

ruby1.9/hppa again, but we’ll force it in then (see Lucas’ mail).

| libgemplugin-ruby       493227
| libgems-ruby            493309          [new upstream release]
| libxml-ruby             485738*         [new upstream release]

These two won’t get approved by the release team (huge debdiffs).  I
suppose this means backporting changes and uploading to t-p-u, which
should be easy for libgems-ruby, but more complex for libxml-ruby.

| libxtemplate-ruby1.8    472430*
| mongrel                 491807*

If I understand [1] correctly, mongrel, libgems-ruby, libgemplugin-ruby,
and shoes (not maintained by us) need to go in together.  Or are there
better interpretations?
