Many bugs are not worth breaking the freeze for, but nor should the
freeze bring development to a standstill.  If upstream releases a new
package, adds features or what-not (not necessarily fixing some
critical bug) should I delay releasing an update for F10 because I
don't want to conflict with the EVR of the package that was frozen for
F11?

I don't think you guys would be too happy if we all started requesting
exceptions to the freeze for feature enhancements, etc.
