This way i won't be able eather to finisch the bug-list or implement new 
features... --> this is too tight. Why do we need such a long freeze persiod 
- its only 3.1... I would propose to start the freeze at the earliest 30. 
June - 31 July·

You say to not implemet much features? Why? For non feature realease we have 
3.0.2. I think we have the right to take us some time till 3.1 :-)

BTW: I have finisch exams in school and won't be able to code that much in
