AFAIU, the policy about the emacs-25 branch was stated by John here:


It reads:

  I'd like to begin the period of final stabilization toward a 25.1 release
  before the summer (which would officially mean June 21st).

  This means that starting now-ish, the only commits that should appear against
  emacs-25 are those that address a serious problem, or are obviously safe and
  an improvement over something we don't want to appear in the release (typos,
  missing an option from a list of alternatives, etc).

  When in doubt about the relevance of a change, please ask here. Otherwise,
  changes outside this scope, but still intended for 25.x, should be queued in
  master toward 25.2, with some indication that it is to be cherry-picked into
  emacs-25 once the release has been cut.
