No no no no
I want it the other way around
. I'd like to have an expected freeze time days in advance, where I'll then know I'll need to finish my edits before the timer elapses. For example, I'd like to know *now* that the next update will contain data frozen in "two days at 12:00 GMT" (note it only matters the timestamp of the data, not really when the mapdate is later finished and live), so I could ensure major fixes happens before that time, and that no major changes happens around that time.
It is then ok if the timer changes from 12:00 to 14:00 because they decide to postpone it.
How many times have I thought "oh I can fix this tomorrow" and then in the morning "mapdate with yesterday's data" and me ohhhhhhhhhh shooops
