Sorry, it's a little bit weird. If you knew about the freeze you
could have posted a patch saying "I don't know who's supposed to
approve this, but there's a patch".

Depends on the meaning of "trivial". A commit that touches a library
that many other libraries depends on might trigger rebuild of a lot
of tests, and that would take a lot of time. So, assuming a commit
breaks something, we spend a couple of days running tests after
the change, notice breakage, trivially rollback it, and wait a couple
days for new results, which easily translates into 4 days, during which
time results of other changes are not updated as often as desired.
