KDE Gear 22.12.3 in Debian Bookworm

Hi all,

as you probably know, Debian's bookworm release is nearing and we're 
close to our hard freeze on 12 March. After that date, every upload 
requires an unblock request which will then be proceed by the Debian 
Release team.
However, that also means that packages need to be uploaded at least 10 
days before the hard freeze to not be affected by it. Gear is scheduled 
to be released on just day on Thursday 2 March.

We would like to get Gear 22.12.3 into bookworm, but we also do not want 
to create 200 unblock requests. One option to avoid this is to simply 
upload everything one day earlier on 1 March, i.e. tomorrow.

So my question is: If the tarballs are available tomorrow, would Debian 
be allowed to upload Gear 22.12.3 tomorrow (evening) a day before the 
official release ?
If yes, great. If not, we will of course respect that decision as well.

Med vänliga hälsningar

Patrick Franz
