Supposedly "the releasable shape" would require no additional fixes
besides dealing with artifacts of branching itself, if any, but
considering that people also need some time to try out release
candidate(s), I think you are right.
I'll post a detailed release plan for discussion sometime next week.

Early branching might help to inforce that, since it's more work for a
developer to check in "late" changes. Hmm, the idea is growing on me.
