With the 'next version' now being branched off of master at beta 1
rather than at the first release candidate, 'next time' starts about 4
months sooner than it used to. Doing full builds for 3.8 can start any
time. It has already had about 5 months of exclusive patches.
This suggests that known changes from pending to deprecation to
exception should be done soon after the version branching. I don't know
if there are any such still needed for 3.8.
