It's been over three weeks since the feature freeze so few bug fixes are
expected outside of the few things left outside the freeze. The question
if everyone was ready for the branch was first asked in IRC last week
and by yesterday the no one was left there with anything but one or
two small want-to-fixes. I made the leap that the same general state
would apply to the devs not present since only a couple devs needed
more time last week, and if not applying a patch to both branches isn't
that painful. I've been telling a number devs to hold off on certain
commits until the branching, and that still applies if you have
something truly big so that patching both branches in the next week
or two until release won't be overly burdensome for bug fixers.
