There will be some work on the 1.7.x branch to fix bugs including bugs that are already reported but have not yet been addressed (like the regression against data-type detection for Sage).   It would be great if 1.7.x gets as much testing as possible so that we can discover regressions that may have occurred.  But, it was important to draw the line for 1.7.0 features.

There are two strategies for working with maintenance branches:
1) commit bug-fixes to maintenance, merge maintenance back into master as needed
2) commit bug-fixes to master, cherry-pick to maintenance, never merge
maintenance back into master

Which are we using? (I.e., which branch should bug-fix PRs be
submitted against?)
