Umm, sorry to be 'that guy' again, but the schedule says Thursday Oct 28, and 
"All deadlines are due 23:59 UTC" which I have always taken to mean 23:59 on 
Oct 28.  So "deadlines" are actually 25:59 the day before the listed freeze 
date?  Perhaps we should say "All freezes take effect from 00:00 UTC on the 
listed date"

Not that it affects me now, my stuff is in the plan, but I don't want to miss 
the hard freeze :-)
