Unofficially we've been operating under a semi-feature freeze to avoid larger disruptions
to the testing. For the sake of openness though, we seriously need to formally declare a feature
freeze. I feel the best way to do this is to branch 1.4, this way 1.5 feature development
can continue while we root out large scale testing bugs in the 1.4 branch.

the timeframe sufficient?

Up to you guys so long as this is what the community decides on the process and, ideally,
it's documented.
