My additions/changes:

These releases must only contain 
* Severe bugs: security vulnerabilities, severe regressions from previous
   releases, data loss bugs 
* Fixes to bugs which are easy to verify and have a report in bugs.kde.org 
* Updated translations 
+ * Updated documentations 
They must not contain 
* API changes 
- * New strings 
+ * New GUI strings
