Great, thank you Gergo.

That's fine. Part of the reason the freeze period is so long this year
is due to the expectation people may have some spotty availability. It
is the holiday season, after all.

I'll be regularly merging bugfixes etc, so it should not be hard to
merge things later.

(Also, the 7.10 branch will be much easier to build this time; a lot
easier for everyone who might backport themselves.)
