Since Universe packages don't go on the CD, we can (for critical things) have
a little more time. This may go into Wednesday, but don't count on it. Plan
to have all your uploads done by the release manager's deadline above.
For Universe/Multiverse uploads after the RM deadline, approval by motu-uvf is
required (this is for all uploads during the hard freeze). If can find out
who we are to hunt us down on IRC here:
Subscribing bugs to motu-uvf is the preferred method of contact, but after the
hard freeze, I'm good with whatever works.
This was discussed on IRC among the available motu-uvf members, so is subject
to change is those not present at the discussion object.
