I think we should still have a formal freeze period with RC builds.
There are some open bugs that we can address too, perhaps. Alex is
inactive so I don't think we have a release manager.

I know the synopsys patch is large, but it's limited to the nano2g (as
of now) and it would allow to promote the nano2g to stable again (if it
works as advertised) so it might be a good idea to actually include it
into the release.

Best regards.
