Thinking of that a bit more: after the Hg transition, shouldn't we be able to
really freeze a branch that is in pre-release approval-needed mode? It is
trivial for anyone to commit a fix to their own branch, and then instead of
pushing they'd have to notify the release manager to pull from them, as the
only person who can push to the frozen branch.
Dirkjan, is that feasible?
Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
