What a wonderful idea!  Soooo completely illogical and out of sync
with any release procedure (that actually aims are making progress
towards a release).

His statement above and the current talks about merging the RMAIL mbox
branch (which IIUC don't really have a current maintainer) could
indicate that RMS wants to make a 22.2 release which includes just the
Rmail branch...

I'm not usually paranoid, but isn't this just another strong
indication of the secret(?) plan to delay -- as much as possible --
not just 22.1, but also every possible future release.
