I was dscussing with some people on IRC who got the false impression
that what they were building and also testing in CI was tested against
CR. I'm back from "offline mode" and had a quick check, but it seems
that your proposal #2 was the one that was chosen : nothing pushed to
CBS/CI so built/tested against 7.3 and not 7.3+CR

Just want to be sure that we communicate that as I saw some RDO folks
mentioning Pike (next release) being released today and they hoped to
follow closely the upstream release. I hope that then the 7.4.1708
release will not break their Pike builds and tests (released before
