"Two weeks before the release a hard freeze is initiated, after which only 
fixes to severe problems and regressions introduced after the feature freeze 
are allowed in." - I found it accidentally in [1] this weekend and postponed 
my PR for 3.10.1, apparently opening a Pandora's box...

Now after Régis' email I see there is a number of much more important fixes 
waiting for a merge. That rule also stated "The release manager announces this 
on feature freeze", what wasn't fulfilled. I'm not sure if all those PRs can 
be merged into 3.10.1, or should be rather considered new features? In the 
former case I wouldn't postpone all the release schedule, but if the latter, 
that unexpected freeze should be IMHO thoroughly reconsidered.
