Tomorrow I am going to do one last pass at the 0.14 milestone and then release 0.14. As a reminder, 0.14.x will be a LTS release, the last skimage version compatible with Python 2.7, and it will receive important backports (bug fixes, critical performance improvements, and maybe even a new feature or two, based principally on community demand).
Thanks for pushing ahead with this release!
One request: that we add one review step to releases, which is that we (as a community) review the release notes. In the past, the release manager simply did these by themselves, but since it is so widely visible, additional eyes would help (to be clear, I'm referring mainly to my own past attempts to get this right!).
Alternatively, we can try doing a pre-release, like NumPy and SciPy do. That is probably the safer and more responsible option, since we may also hear from other projects that have the "--pre" flag in their continuous integration setups. But it happens to also give us a chance to complete the above-mentioned release note review.
Josh, we can still backport flood fill to a next point release later, especially if you can already submit it by tomorrow.
Best regards, Stéfan
