The second and third items from the Release checklist are
2) File bug reports for all outstanding bugs known, but not reported
a) Put out a general call for reports on Octave-Maintainers and Octave-Help list
3) Review patch tracker/bug list for any patches submitted that may be included before release
The idea is to collect all the bits of code that have been floating around and have them checked in to Mercurial. At that point, we do a feature freeze and no new or major changes can be made. This is very likely to de-stabilize the build for a while and lead to some new bug reports. But, we have several weeks of testing and resolving anything before an actual release.
I suspect there is also a humorous difference in perspectives here between North America and Europe. During the holidays, work slows down, so North Americans get to spend more time on their hobbies. While in Europe, work slows down, and people choose to spend more time with their families. Same cause, different effect.
