Hi Stepan, thanks for bringing this up again.

Agreed, let's shoot for the end of the month for M3.

Yep, so no new areas of significant functionality should be introduced
after Sept 15th; but we can continue to do bug/perf/tidy-up type changes
during this period.

So what are you proposing gets branched? everything (and only those
things) that contributes to the federated build? e.g. drlvm, classlib,
and jdktools.  I assume that the BTI code is not branched too?

Can BTI and other scripts cope ok with switching to the code on a branch
rather than dealing with HEAD?

Once the M3 branch is created then I assume that the HEAD is opened once
again for code and feature changes, but changes to the stable M3 branch
require our established `review then commit` style.

Though there is no reason why we would not merge the M3 branch into HEAD
during the M3-shut-down period either, right?  At the end of Sept we do
the final merge, then delete the M3 branch.

No, I'm keen that we get another stable build published.
