I want to clarify that we decided to cut the release branch not that
develop was not stable. But really that it is desirable to cut the branch
sooner to avoid any regression risk that can be introduced by on-going work
on develop.

Nevertheless looks like develop is more stable than release branch due to
some test fixes that were not cherry-picked into the release branch.
I think its a good idea to re-cut the branch as our current position to
stabilize release branch before releasing.

+1 to re-cut.
