My assumption is if authors don't finish them in the next few days, they
are unlikely to finish them during some grace period during feature
freeze.  And the extra time is usually allowed for changes requested by
committers, while at this point the authors aren't done and haven't even
gotten to committer review.

Fine, if they need help, let them ask, but many authors are not asking
for help --- they are just not completing the patches.

Or they are going to surprise us by completing them on March 31.
