As other people have already pointed out, the freeze itself won't start
until Monday although we'd still prefer not to do such major changes so
close to the start of the freeze.  However, as my announcement also
indicates, we allow such commits after prior agreement with portmgr and
proper testing, which in the jpeg case was a full build on the cluster.

Hope this clears thing up a bit.
