It meant to refer to trunk and release branch. Other branches are
free to carry on.

However, don't take "code-freeze" too literally. We should define
what it means. I reckon that it means no new functionality,
because that could introduce new bugs. Doing bug fixing if they
are substantial bugs. What else? Does the cleanup of the sitemaps
qualify? If done carefully, then probably okay. WDOT?
