This may have been partially my fault. I was understanding that our 
estimations were that we could land the rest of the string blockers on 
Wednesday and that looked tight to achieve that, but reasonably realistic.

That is what I then told sipaq as our expectations, which was 
unfortunately just after he'd done the first post to l10n. Which may 
have lead to doing it via late-l10n.

Also, I was understanding that the general agreement amongst the drivers 
were not to slip beta 2 further, and hence going into full freeze at 
this time was the best thing to do, and I do think it has helped drive 
in some of those remaining blockers.
