Actually we can have a "package freeze" since we can do the portage
snapshots with catalyst.  This also allows you do decide what versions of
packages are part of a release without effecting the regular tree.

It might also be nice to have a master snapshot for building releases
with that incorporates any changes and updates needed, so that we are all
on the same page when building.
