These have always been "eventually in some future", not "next
week".

A topic with potentially high impact tends to cook in 'next' longer
than a trivial typo fix, so that it has better chance of getting
stopped by the community dogfooding of 'next' before getting merged
to 'master' and bite the general public.

And the commit-graph thing certainly is a bigger beast I'd feel
safer if people tested heavily while it is in 'next' before it hits
'master'.
