Option 2 of merging the LuCI DSA changes and then making the first 21.02-rc 
sounds good to me.
Also the option 1 of doing the rc now would likely be ok, as the only a few 
targets actually use DSA, so the absence of LuCI support for DSA does not 
concern that many users.

Like with previous releases, the developers interest mainly stays on the 
master, and not much happens in the new release branch...

It is now 50 days since the 21.02 was branched in February, so a high time to 
get the rc out.
