On my side, this looks OK but localization is still lagging behind.

Unless we deem it acceptable to get 4.2.0 out in English only (or with a 
significant percentage of English strings in the UI even for localized 
versions) this is still quite blocking, especially considering that 
there is an entire localization community that will need to be reactivated.

Localization is, so to say, under my "ownership" (meaning: it's an area 
where I've volunteered to lead the effort); but I can't commit to 
getting it done by a certain deadline right now. Volunteers welcome, of 
course; even beginners.

I do think we should try and get 4.2.0 out in all languages; but for a 
beta it would be acceptable to have English only, or incomplete 

Localization doesn't have a big impact in terms of branches since what 
we have now is not aligned to the code anyway. And localization files 
live in their own directory so conflicts are not to be expected.
