Probably they were not aware of the freezing.
Devs in charge of those revisions, please revert those changes or 
explain how they are bug fixes.

No, it just proves that some people are willing to play with your mind 
and discourage you when they don't like something, even though the 
ENTIRE team is backing you on this.

One person's opinion versus 10 others which agree with the freeze.

I'm sorry, but I'm not going to let someone trash you down on IRC and 
overrule your (and the other devs') decision. TRUNK must remain frozen 
as decided. You're not the only one who made the decision to freeze it, 
others backed you, and you can't just unfreeze it like this without 
everyone else that froze it agreeing. This is a typical rule of common 
voting, and it's been originally made so that someone couldn't get 
bribed into making a unilateral decision after a group of people made 
one :). In your case, you were intimiated.

Best regards,
