Well, what really matters is what upstream is planning on doing with the 
codebase.  We ship "pre" releases of various types at various times, but 
always with a mind of what the upstream will do with them.  Most often we 
ship it only if it goes into a bugfix mode only, and the final release falls 
somewhere in line with our final freeze date.  We absolutely make sure that 
there aren't any feature enhancements planned for after our feature freeze.
