My intent was a combination of both i.e. that the 1st is the deadline
for changes and, at that time, I announce a freeze on a tag.

In the event that there are changes after that tag, we can decide
whether to re-tag to include them or they have to wait until the next
release. But the idea of stating the deadline early is that there should
ideally not be such changes.

Best regards,
Andrew :)
