I just talked to Keybuk. The push has been approved and https:// has the new schedule  
approved by the TB. This means the UI Freeze is now on April 20th and  
the DocStringFreeze is on May 4th.
Are we OK with that? I told Keybuk that we were thinking of a much  
sooner Freeze (to allow more time for translation, etc.) but he  
didn't think it would be necessary. He asked why it would  take  
longer for translation for Dapper than Breezy. Since I wasn't around  
the doc team for Breezy I couldn't give a good answer.
