Its a good idea if we can stick to a quick pretest cycle (a couple of
weeks at the most). Otherwise the dragging out of the pretest will
cause disillusioned users and distract the developers from getting CVS
trunk into a releasable state. There are only a couple of minor
bugfixes, so it should be possible to keep the pretest short if we
purposely set out to do that and don't get distracted.

We could make a 21.4 release from the release branch.
That might be a good idea anyway.
I agree. IIRC, 21.3 had a couple of annoying last-minute bugs.
