your recent docbook commits probably do not fit this definition, much less
so than the suggested valgrind update that we nevertheless postponed until
after the merge. They cause an extraordinary number of rebuilds. I hope they
are mostly harmless and do not cause additional build failures, so keeping
them in is probably easier than reverting them.

But let us from now on stick with commits that make important packages work,
or packages very close to the leaves.

I suggest the following timetable:
- Hard freeze now, only important broken packages or packages close to the
  leaves may be changed.
- Over the weekend, update your systems and profiles and test and repair
  problems that appear.
- If no show-stopper occurs, merge core-updates into master on Tuesday.
