That's how FreeBSD tries to handle it (except that you do your
own nightly builds if you want that).  But every time, just before freature
freeze time, there is a flurry of commits.   Once feature freeze happens,
however, there are only bug fixes.

Likewise, with Zope my impression is that once the Beta is cut, we are in
feature freeze.  Now, ZC may not have operated that way in the past *entirely*,
but I think we should from now on.

A flurry of commits *before* feature freeze seems unaviodable, however.
That's what deadlines are for, after all <grin>.
