Sometime before the release of a new major version of Emacs a "feature
freeze" is imposed on the trunk, to prepare for creating a release
branch. No new features may be added to the trunk after this point,
until the release branch is created. This freeze is announced on the

(and other important events) are made on the info-gnu-emacs mailing

The trunk branch is named "master" in git; release branches are named
"emacs-nn" where "nn" is the major version.

If you are fixing a bug that exists in the current release, be sure to
commit it to the release branch; it will be merged to the master
branch later.
