This is a bit tight. Freeze for 1.4.2 is the same day as 1.5.0, so we'd
be testing 2 stable releases at the same time.

So if we do this, I think it we should restrict it to fixing the specific
issues we're considering as potential 1.5.0 release blockers so we can
focus on those in testing rather than opening it up for general fixes.
