That would be an ack from a MOTU (an ack as in a "looks ok, let's upload"), and
not from motu-release as you said initially. But of course non-MOTUs need ACKs
from MOTUs, but that's to do everything, as they can't do anything by themselves :)

Anyway I don't think non-MOTUs *need* (as in enforced by policy) to do
paperwork. Of course if they want to go through the SponsorsQueue they will do
it, but that's a different thing than Feature Freeze.

What I wanted to say is that we shouldn't require paperwork for something which
was changed to avoid it (UVF -> FF) in case of bug-fixes-only releases.
