I think there's been some confusion here.  The plan is not to release
during the holidays.  The plan is to freeze (merge default in stable)
before the Christmas holidays and release during January (~4 weeks
after freeze).

One of the reasons was exactly the lack of time during the holidays.
Changes pushed to @ during the holidays would then not go into the
next release.
