Release process and schedule ?

Now core-udpates is merged, it is good time to make a new release [0].

Schedule?  I propose a release date for January, 31st.  Early?  When?

The branch version-1.4.0 is already created and instead of cherry pick,
I propose to rebase with master until the freeze.  WDYT?

For v1.3, this bug #47297 [1] collected all the blocking items and it
worked well, I guess.  Do we do the same?

In any case, to help the release process, please:

 a. test – especially the installer [2]
 b. fix bugs severity:important,serious [3,4] or report
 c. proofread the last manual [5]
 d. translate [6]
 e. highlight an item to ease the list of important changes

The lesson of v1.0.1 [#,@] is: please help in testing the installer. :-)

How does it sound?

Last, Guix is a “rolling-release“, so what does it mean ‘release’? :-)
The main argument for releasing, IMHO, is communication and so attract
potential new users. :-)
