[Naveen]  We can wait for stable release. If it is urgent, we can carry patches for bug fixes,  in case upstream does not give dot release !

Even if we don't have the 2.6.0-rc1 release default (to which I agree), I still think having support for it (as a non default) is beneficial. Especially given that 2.6.0 will be an LTS so people might want early (opt-in) support for the time being.
