There are no patch sets to fix a special problem -- all fixes are done
incrementally.  Having patch sets could theoretically allow to fix on
to of 21.2 the encoding problem only.

Sure.  I don't want to blame you (or any other release manager)
personally, by no means!  Pre-release candidates should be available
more visibly.

Yes, but if a problem is rated as serious it might be appropriate to
work on such a problem first and to try to solve it for _all_ Emacs
users.  Maybe, that's just my very personal opinion.
