Default Suggestion: An earlier freeze for soname bumps

It is hard to do testing for spins when there is also some broken dependency
in rawhide. (The latest last minute breakage being gmime.) Doing soname
bumps right before the alpha freeze (I think under the new development rules
the updates would be blocked for beta and beyond) results in fire drills
with people scrambling to get packages rebuilt and makes spin testing

Perhaps a separate freeze date for soname bumps (at least for those that are
dependencies for other packages) could be made. Or at least a string suggestion
that people not frivilously do these right before freezes since they block
or make extra work for people when there is a tight deadline for getting things
