Release schedule change affects GSoC projects

Hello release team,

I just noticed, that changes Aug 18 to Aug 7 the UI freeze, that means almost two weeks earlier.

The previous schedule (Aug 18) was already a little difficult for our GSoC projects, since students have the official schedule until 29 August. So we were pushing in the last weeks to try to make the merges as soon as possible, but relying on exceptions.

However, the new schedule makes very difficult to make UI projects for GSoC and being included in the release, that as you might know it's quite important for both the students to have their code in master and for maintainers to have the projects in the release itself.

Could it be possible to reeschedule one week more again (at least)?
If not, would be the release team open for UI exceptions late on the freeze cycle for those projects doing GSoC?

Best regards,
Carlos Soriano
