Could we define the role of the 1.7.x branch? Is this bug fixes only? Or 
are new features that maintain ABI compatibility candidates for inclusion?

Is there a planned period between releases or will they just go out 
whenever it looks like there are a few new commits?

Given that there were only three simple lines of code changed in 1.7.1, 
testing obviously wasn't particularly needed for this. For more 
substantive changes, can we expect at least an RC or a suggestion to 
test the branch HEAD?
