fragile pre-freeze packages
all major versions are backwards incompatible
new major versions are frequent
we should ideally always version these for zig, rust,
include-what-you-use, etc etc, but, for now,
updates should be held back on prior to a freeze so
we can be sure of no bulk build fallout
firefox (non-esr), rust
can come with surprising new platform requirements, should
be held back on unless you can test that it works properly
and is stable on all platforms where people commonly use
qt5, boost, poppler, rust
often these have small API breakages on minor releases, and
can cause a surprising amount of fallout.
it makes sense to hold back on updates prior to a freeze UNLESS
you can run a full bulk build on your private tree and fix any
fallout before committing.
will require a full bulk build with all problems fixed
regardless of freeze status.
