Apologies for breaking the freeze and a suggestion

This morning I worked on two bug fixes for Gwenview which I pushed to the 
KDE/4.9 branch. Only later in the afternoon did I check email and realized I 
should not have pushed those changes as we were freezing for RC2. I want to 
apologize for that.

Since a "git push" is a bit too easy to do, I was wondering whether it would 
be possible to have a git hook which would disallow pushing in freeze mode. 
The hook could be designed to only allow commits if they have a 
"APPROVED_BY_RELEASE_TEAM" keyword in the commit message.

This would prevent clueless people like me from pushing when they should not. 
Do you think this is doable?
