This is said during the ESC call each week, commit reviews and freezes
are notified.
For this case, it was ambiguous as string freeze is noted on a week and
not a day, it was made the first day of the freeze week and was an
important fix to my eyes.
When it's out of the period, I'm asked by developers. If it's only
cosmetic then I disagree with braking the freeze.
So the communication is handled and the freeze usually well respected,
but as you see, sometimes braking it is justified and it's only and
remains an exception to the rule.

Cheers
Sophie
