I've been informed that the archive will freeze on Monday April 11 at
0900 UTC.  Since the installer images need to be refreshed with our
final kernel, I now plan to upload our final kernel prior to Monday.
I've been told gcc-4.5 will undergo an upload today or tomorrow.  I'll
upload the kernel shortly after gcc-4.5 finishes building.  So expect
our final kernel upload to take place on Saturday or Sunday now.
