In general releasing should not have to wait for patches to be
committed, and release time isn't the time to suddenly commit a bunch
of last minute patches.  It should rather be the reverse: right after
a release is when you should commit the big changes; this way they
have the most time to "bake" (uncovering issues) in trunk.

It's best if what's committed is always kept in a releasable state;
this way on any given morning someone could wake up and cut a release

If there are truly blocker bugs then they should be marked that way in Jira...
