The point is, the timeframe for the freeze was well known. So whole problem is 
based on the timeframe of maintainers in relationship with sponsors. No need 
to blame the debian project for that fact.
Anyways ... we can try to work on the packages as well into experimental (and 
so going through NEW) and when lenny is released, reupload them into unstable 
and let them migrate to testing. As far as they are there, I'm able to upload 
the packages to backports.org (lenny-backports), which shouldn't such a big 
thing at all. 

With kind regards, Jan.
