Not up to me, but showing the diff (it is not huge) would help to answer that.

Technically speaking, no; ref:

but if the changes are simple, probably yes. (But again, not up to me.)

Ha. There is no "target" AFAIK.

(Some people expressed a desire for more frequent releases, and I think
the phrase "every 6 months" was mentioned. The 24.4 feature freeze began
7 months ago...

There's no visible progress with any of the outstanding important bugs,
and no-one doing any serious documentation improvements.
Bug reports show that many people are using trunk rather than emacs-24.

So in summary I don't know when the release will be.
I hope it is a bit sooner than winter.)
