i'd like to raise a formal objection.

CI was virtually unusable for two weeks now.
due to that there is a completely unreasonable backlog of changes meant
for 5.1 now. it makes no sense to re-target (or even deny them) due to
infrastructure problems.
also, we didn't have a single qt5.git integration in several weeks now.
that means that there is a fair amount of uncertainty involved (well, in
fact, i know that it's broken - my half-integrated patch series
contributes to that).

consequently we should delay the freeze by at least one week.

in fact, thiago and me already decided that we'll create an old/5.0
branch from stable right before we merge dev.
