That's true for bug fixes, but there might be fixes for build warnings,
new parameters and things like that which should be included in 3.2.1, but
not in 3.2.0.

I would like to pick up as little patches as possible after the first
release candidate.

I already noticed how well freezing works! ;-)

Let me give an example:
Jeremy's (sorry, Jeremy ;-) 79bda4467f3:
The commit message: Re-enable the evil "aio write behind" parameter.

I would not like to pick that one up automatically, because I don't
understand why I should re-enable an evil parameter. That's why I asked 
Jeremy why this should be in v3-2-stable. What I mean is, the effort for
the developers is the same as saying: Karolin, pick that one up, because... 

I would feel a little bit more comfortable with this procedure until 3.2.0 is
