I don't think it is possible to just stop development just because a package has been approved. There isn't even a new build system yet, so please let us just continue to do development in the old build system until the time that the infrastructure is actually ready to do the move. I don't think such a freeze between approval and move would buy us anything, really. Or do you want me to wait for reapproval after any change I do post-merge, too ?

All I mean is that eventually, there will be a moment in time in which a package's CVS moves from internal to external. The maintainer basically has control over that timeframe, which doesn't have to be long. But at some point the maintainer of a package will say something like:

"no more checkins to the internal CVS, we're moving"
	followed by
"ok to checkin, we're now in the external CVS"

is that wrong?
