In order to do so, I've been holding off on starting the releases. I think we are now getting close to having the important ones resolved so I'm going to plan on cutting off code for 3.7.1rc1 and 3.6.7rc1 by the end of 2018-09-20 (23:59 AoE).  That's roughly 38 hours from now.

Hi Ned,

I'm really sorry, but would it be possible to delay the RCs until Sunday
or Monday AoE?

Some of the XML security fixes, OpenSSL 1.1.1 fixes (TLS 1.3
post-handshake authentication), and SSL module regression haven't landed
yet. I'm confident that I can land most to all fixes during the weekend.

Related PRs are:

* https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/9468
* https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/9460
* https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/9217
* https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/9265

I'm also still collaborating with Sebastian Pipping (libexpat
maintainer) on the DoS mitigations (CVE-2013-0340). My initial patch had
some flaws. I might be able to get expat release 2.3.0 in time, too.
