That's why the release plan calls for having a release candidate for
two weeks, with no critical issues reported against it, before making
a stable release.  That release candidate would of course be made from
a separate branch, with only translation patches being applied to that

I'll wait another day for comments in case anybody missed it due to
the savannah list downtime, but I despite my objection, I'll branch
stable/2.14 in the next few days unless anybody speaks heavily against
