Yes, new libraries would have to be merged into branches/release by June 19.

Yes, but I wanted to get feedback first.

In other words, here is how the schedule would play out for this release:
June 19 - branches/release closed for new libraries and major upgrades
or breaking changes to existing libraries.
July 3 - branches/release closed for routine minor changes and fixes.
Still open for serious problem fixes.
July 10 - branches/release closed for all library changes except where
specific permission given by release manager(s).
July 15 (sooner if possible) Beta 1 target date. Continue to release
betas and/or release candidates as feedback dictates.
July 31 Release target date.
> Have a good 1.36 release!
