I think part of the problem is exactly that the freeze period has
stretched into summer, and so people aren't around for one reason or
another, and so it's going slower than one could wish.

As already noted, when we set the schedule we were not expecting to have
so many large patches dropped on us at the very end of the devel cycle.
What I'd like to think about is how can we avoid *that* happening again?
Maybe there's no way, because human nature is to not finish stuff much
before the deadline :-(.  But dealing with a big patch logjam is
obviously overwhelming the community's resources.
