I think we should first decide whether new features that are "almost
ready" should or should not be in 25.1.  Two examples that immediately
come to mind are dynamic loading and xwidgets; I don't know if there
are others.  After we make the decision, we could see if one week's
time is enough.

We used to cut a release branch fairly early in the pretest ,
certainly at least when the first pretest tarball is put on
alpha.gnu.org.  Does the above mean you want the pretest to be worked
on on master instead?
