The release work happens on master.  The branch wip-next-release
contains fixes, but AFAIK, it is not built by the CI, and these fixes
are ’core-updates’-like changes; I do not know if it is doable to merge
on time.

Well, maybe the patches could be directly applied to master, IMHO.

Quote the proposed Release timeline [1]:

        A draft of the timeline is:

         - until April 1rst: fixes, check substitute availability, etc.
         - as soon as possible: start to build wip-next-release
         - merge branch wip-next-release when ready
         - on Monday 12th April, string freeze
         - couple of days after, branch the release and write the materials
           (ChangeLog and posts)
         - release


PS: Sorry if the release process appears unclear.  Based on the
experiences of 1.2.0 and now this one, the idea is to propose then a
clear documented timeline for the next releases.  Basically, some
technical items are described in maintenance/doc/ [2] and
from my point of view, some items describing the (timeline) process
should be added.  Maybe in the manual so that we all know what we can
