fai is a native package, that is made 'non-native' for ubuntu. That
means that I take every upload to debian as a new .orig.tar.gz, which
means that every merge from debian is technically a new upstream

Yes, fai is quite a special case, that's why I ask for a standing freeze
exception because you cannot really draw a clear line either here.

I don't think so. Thomas focuses on lenny, and only on lenny until
squeeze approaches its own freeze.

If you tell me that a freeze exception is not necessary anyways, that's
fine with me as well.
