Soon we will branch a 2.7 release candidate. <UPDATE: done, see email 
from Brad> Here are some things to prepare for:

1) Start testing the release candidate as soon as possible - please post 
results to IRC or email, openly discuss any problems that you find on 
your system.

2) Clean up documentation, bring old docs current, add documentation for 
new functionality.

3) Send me any input for release notes that did not make it in a release 
feature (github issue)

4)Bug cleanup/feature (issue) cleanup, add comments, indicate state - if 
something didn't make it in the release, please let me know first and/or 
come to a release planning meeting and we'll take care of it.

5) Master will not be frozen, so new functionality can continue to make 
progress, but please take some time in the next couple of weeks to test 
or contribute docs, etc

Remember: communicate outside your organization MUCH more than you think 
you need to - use IRC, send email, share what you are doing and where 
you are with it!

Happy 2.7 release month!
