We decided that it would be easier for everyone involved (esepcially
the overworked release manager) that it's better to freeze HEAD for
a brief (2-3 days) period of time.

This is, of course, a decision that can be reviewed periodically,
but I haven't seen any significant changes (like, say, switching
to svn) to how we work that would negate previous decisions.
