Target is to reduce the merge steps after no further patch releases planned for Qt 5.13. One option would be to agree that at certain point 5.13 goes into cherry pick mode, if not closed.  That can be reached also by having 5.14 as the stable branch after 5.13.2 is branched. 5.13 could be open even until Qt 5.14.0 is released, but only receive cherry picked changes from 5.14 branch.

    I think we should keep it open, since the timing could allow for a 5.13.3. The 
    schedule for 5.14 straddles the contributor summit, so there's a non-
    negligible chance that it won't be out by the end of November.
    Worst case is that we don't release it and 5.13 gets merged into 5.14.
