Do we want to shut off debian imports early, basically as soon as bookworm releases, to avoid having all our work overwhelmed by a bunch of transitions in Debian?

My opinion is that moving Debian Import Freeze all the way to June 10
is too early. It would mean that more transitions and major changes
would happen during the 24.04 LTS cycle instead.

Thank you,
