Nobody has objected your suggestion during this week, so I consider
string freeze active now.

Well, I think we either release it relatively soon (well before
2.4.2) or not at all - no point in releasing from old stable series

distribution out there runs a policy to accept bugfix releases of the
upstream projects as updates to their releases)
