I agree.

In this case I think it certainly does matter.

The Subversion project doesn't take 3rd party deployment soak time into
account. The soak time is there so that the critical features that are
destined for a release aren't committed on the day of the deadline and
released the same day. Since we do branch on the day of the milestone,
testing can occur for an entire week to flush out issues. Basically
nothing but critical bugfixes should be included on the branch.

It helps when the people involved with the various aspects of the
release process would test on the branch day (or close after).
