The DebianImportFreeze for Intrepid is a week away, on 26 June:

At this point, automatic syncs of packages from Debian will cease,
although it will still be possible to request them without the need for
approval from the release team. Perhaps more significantly, all packages
should have been merged from Debian at least once by this time. After 26
June, merging a package from Debian that hasn't been merged since Hardy
will require a freeze exception, so please try to get all your remaining
merges for Intrepid done by that point so that we have less paperwork to

If you need help getting a merge done in time, feel free to contact the
Ubuntu Release Team on the #ubuntu-release IRC channel on, and we'll do what we can to help distribute this work.
