I am not sure what "frozen" means exactly; I would say we must not make
commits to core-updates unless they repair a broken package, or maybe help
repair broken packages further down towards the leaves. (And this has been
true for a while now.) And maybe we should go further and refrain from
repairing things in core-updates that are already broken on master, at
least if they are relatively close to the root of the dependency graph.
These can be done later in feature branches; I think we have the infra-
structure to shoulder bigger changes outside of core-updates.

On the other hand, this report is a bit worrying:
   [core-updates] locales not installed properly
It could potentially mean changes to glibc, which would throw us back
a week.
