Don't try to get perfect. What exists now for far exceeds the quality of 3.5.13. Push the tarballs.

Additional 3.5.13.x releases make some sense, but I'd rather see time and energy focused on getting R14 out the door. The time and energy devoted to has robbed R14 of forward progress.

Maintaining a stable 3.5.13.x is challenging because of the need to evaluate and test backwards compatibility of every single patch --- 'TQ/tq' transpositional fixes, XDG differences, etc. Those differences won't exist with R14 point releases. The sooner we get R14 out the door the better off we'll be.

I have been proposing this type of release schedule for a long while.
