At this point, qualification for inclusion into emacs-25 is fairly strict (now
clarifying for the sake of future discussion):

  - It should *not* result in any changes to the NEWS file, APIs, or existing
    documentation. Not unless we missed something major.

  - If it fixes new behavior -- so, it hasn't been out in the wild yet -- then
    just fix it if you think it's not destabilizing.

  - If it corrects old behavior, sufficient testing is needed to ensure that
    this "right" behavior does not lead to surprising behavior after two
    pretests have already been out.

Be very cautious with changes at this point, since they won't have had the
benefit of those pretests. Especially if it's a breakage that has been broken
for a long time, I say it can stay broken until 25.2. But if we're smoothing
out new code before it hits the streets, there is still a little time for
that.
