Yes.  That's what we had the freeze period for.  But we're going to release
only the sources today (which still lasts 18h in Alaska) and call for packages
after that.

The release manager is blocking people from continuing their bug fixing work
after having blocked them to doing their feature work already.

Releasing just the sources on the release date will probably just put pressure
on the packagers to get packages out asap.  But there's no set date when that
needs to happen.  But Monday is hopefully not far off.
