I think a freeze during the transition is of course necessary. But when 
the decision about what and where has not even been taken, does a 
freeze now make any sense? Why  not make sure we know what is going to 
happen first, then make a plan and include the freeze period in that 
migration plan. The way it goes now, we go into an indefinite freeze.

What holds for source.development also holds a bit for texmf-dist. 
After all, texmf-dist is in part also development. I have not seen a 
compelling argument why texmf-dist shoul dbe frozen while 
source.development should not.
