I fixed and closed these two last week.

#3348 or other bugs or annoyances don't prevent us from branching as they
don't involve large code changes which would make subsequent backports
impossible nor they are API changes which could lead to bad legacy APIs or
API breaks.

There are no tickets marked as blocker or critical and there is only 8
defect tickets.

Additionally, the `grass --tmp-location` flag is probably (hopefully)
addition useful enough to make for next minor release. (Forgive me for not
recalling other changes.) [Side note: I'm saying this because I just saw a
note somewhere complaining that now software is released based on different
occasions not when it is ready for the next version. In our case, we missed
the birthday date, but we have features and fixes!]
