Sorry Philip, I forgot about it after the freeze (and I'm not sure whether he
would have accepted terms like "freeze" and "stable branch" as an excuse,
judging from his e-mail).

Anyway, I think he's being unreasonable.  Even if I had committed this update
"on time", a next one would have been too late.  The guy just seems to have a
problem with packagers in general.  He has even threatened with legal action
against some[*].  That's not someone I want to deal with, and others here have
expressed similar opinions.
