[development] Drupal 6 code freeze

Hello world,

we're moving forward at full speed, and it would be a pity to  
suddenly abrupt that, wouldn't it?

As there are still many interesting patches in the queue that are  
almost there, and because we cranked out new stuff like crazy, I  
decided that it would be best to postpone the code freeze for 4  
weeks.  This is a one-time extension that leaves us some more time to  
finish some of the work that we started, and to put some more polish  
in place.

Even with another 4 weeks, it is unlikely that all the key patches  
will make it into Drupal 6 so let's not waste time and keep up the  
steady pace of contributions (good job!). Also, keep in mind that  
towards the end of June, I'll be traveling a fair bit so I won't be  
able to review as many patches as usual.  Last but not least, I'm  
going to give priority to those patches that were already in the  
works before today.

Happy hacking,
