Why are we averse to cutting a release stabilization branch?  In the past, we have cut release
stabilization branches to ensure that the flow contributions was not interrupted.  For committers,
it is not a big deal since they can manage their branches in the cloudstack repo.  However,
for non-committers, this freeze could cause unnecessary frustration and discourage further

Maybe that's something that you can do at the meetup today and bring it back to the list as
a proposal ?

When I talk about freeze I am thinking just letting the RMs commit on master, everyone who
wants something in 4.6 should submit a PR.
