Changes that are purely documentational are no problem.  They don't change the
purpose of the RC, and so we can accept them up until the very last moment,
when Nicolas cut the final tarball and we ship it.

Put another way: cutting an RC for doc changes cannot tell us anything new
about the potential stability of the release. And so, *modulo documentation
changes*, there have been no recent changes to emacs-25 that Eli did not deem

Changes to *code* should absolutely not be happening now, unless there is
enough justification to require pausing the release process and sending out
another RC and another waiting period.
