Is experimental up-to-date?

Not in my case, mostly because as a DM I cannot upload to experimental without prior DD upload. At least I think so. ;)

I believe you can, by same rules as to unstable (e.g. no change in names of binary packages).

But if need be, I could prepare updated packages for experimental.

That you can for sure :-D

I could also imagine to keep testing the way it is now and directly upload to unstable, especially wrt your idea:

As I mentioned earlier today in another thread, unstable should be kept available as a "take-off ramp" for bugfixes targeted testing and thus Squeeze.

Yes, the freeze period is a frustrating time for us all, but if ignoring it passively (e.g. not participating in bug squashing parties) or actively (e.g. not respecting the unstable→testing→stable pipeline) the freeze will be *longer*.

Ongoing maintainance of the packaging in Git does not disturb the release process, and uploads to experimental does not either, so both are great ways to make the frustrating freeze period bearable.
