Stabilizing the master branch is active development as this allows to have
stronger fundation for the next features you can introduce 2 or 3 weeks after
the stabilization weeks starts.

That's the way linux, u-boot & co are running and when the new merge window
opens several thousand of patches can be merged in a few days.
If we don't do that, the idea of stable release which implies detecting and
fixing potential failures introduced by previous big changes will fail.
