The text you quote is not about 1.4.2, but the general statement (that
I need not only be informed but also need to approve) is valid also
for the question whether there will be a 1.4.2.

I asked you to agree that we will first get consensus about whether
there will be a 1.4.2.  You did not do that, so I had to conclude that
you will not accept that I need to approve before you can work on a
1.4.2 release.  I think I have made the rules very simple and made it
easy for you to do the things that I want you to do.

Although I am currently of the opinion that we should not have a 1.4.x
release series, I am not saying that I can't be convinced or
