Not an objection as such, just a question if I may.  Is a package freeze
going to be implemented once the branch is cut?  I would think this is a
sensible policy to enforce.  If so, am I alright upgrading packages
tonight?  So far we have the following to do:

dejagnu 1.4.3 - 1.4.4 (untested)
gettext 0.13.1 - 0.14.1 (tested OK recently by Allard Welter)
grub-0.93 - 0.9.4 (untested)
lfs-bootscripts 0.12 - 0.13
lfs-utils 0.4.2 - 0.4.3 (untested, we trust Zack right :) )
libtool 1.5 - 1.5.2
man-pages 1.64 - 1.65 (tested, not that it would ever fail!)

The good thing about these updates is that they're not affected by
any patches so it should be a trivial version number entity update.
