Nope, this is not how it happens. The stabling process happens all year 
long, even when releases are not being prepared.

In fact, very little changes when releases are being, as Chris and 
Andrew said, the stable release is a snapshot of the stable tree at a 
given moment in time. Nothing else. arch doesn't change, ~arch doesn't 
change either.
