After discussion with our release manager, the deadline is now set to
Monday, 13. April 22:00 UTC.

The original plan was to do the final export from Rosetta on Friday
17th. However, the current export (started on Friday 22:00) is still
running, so the time to produce the langpacks would take too long to
make it into Jaunty. Therefor we just decided to put the cut-off to
Monday 22:00 UTC.

I have asked the release managers, but didn't receive any answer yet.
So, I would expect it not to happen. But you may be lucky.

We are in preparation for the RC, right now.
