My view is that this is much too late. Part of the rationale for moving the
release date is to improve the localisation, and the sheer quantity of new
documentation to translate in this release cycle is massive. On the other hand,
the bulk of the documentation is ready.

I'd be in favour of either (a) not moving the documentation freeze at all (March
23rd) or (b) delaying a maximum of 2 weeks (April 6th).

Delaying a full 6 weeks is certainly not necessary.
