Feature Freeze is August 29th.  That's going to be a very tight timeframe.  There will be a Xubuntu meeting this Thursday at 1500 UTC where this request can be handled most appropriately.  This sort of discussion is already on the agenda and, of course, attendance by you and Olli or your deputies possibly be beneficial.

I'll be glad to raise this as a matter for discussion then unless otherwise overruled beforehand.
