That wouldnt help at all, "delaying the release" is just another name for "not
making an release from master for a longer period of time" and thus would
result in _more_ regressions, not less. LibreOffice is already doing
exceptionally long release cycles compared to the rest of the open source
software world.

All of this is being discussed in the linked video, I suggest you watch it.
