I'd like to see both of those in 25.1.

Let's freeze this Friday, and take a step back. We have several courses open:

 1. Decide that what we have now should become 24.6.

 2. Decide it will become 25.1.

 3. Decide that we want to bring in more features that aren't yet complete,
    and so push the freeze to a future date.

I'd actually like to know more about our current release flow, before having
that discussion here. I don't know yet what I want in that respect.
