From the Community Guide:

"At the beginning of the final week of the stabilization period, a new
release candidate tarball should be made if there are any showstopper
changes pending since the last one. The final week of the stabilization
period is reserved for critical bugfixes; fixes for minor bugs should be
deferred to the A.B.1 release. A critical bug is a non-edge-case crash, a
data corruption problem, a major security hole, or something equally
serious."
