I described what I thought should be the policy here:


to which no one objected.

Bug#24478 is listed as blocking 25.2 release, so its fix should
definitely go to the emacs-25 branch.  But I understand you are still
waiting for Glenn to tell whether the solution is correct?

Not sure about bug#24698.  Does it fit the criteria described in the
above message?

Yes, but I'd like it to be very short.  If possible, I'd like to start
the 25.2 pretest in a couple of weeks.

See above.  Not every bug that fits the criteria is listed as
blocking, primarily because we simply failed to mark them as blocking.
