The details of the release plan are contained in another post

As it says there, new features & tasks, patches, bug fixes, etc will be
considered until Feb 5. Of course, any committer may veto a patch or a
commit, perhaps to suggest it be deferred till after the release. In other
words, IMHO, it would be acceptable to -1 something, giving the reason that
inclusion of the patch, so close to a release, would risk introducing bugs,
etc. Conversely, we could vote to delay the release to include an important
change. I don't think we want to become slaves to the release plan. If it
needs to change, it should be changed.

I would also note that submitting a patch before Feb 5th does not guarantee
its inclusion in the release, since there may be no committer who has
enough time to fully consider the patch.
