I recommend you do the paperwork now, because it does take a few weeks

I just sent an email earlier today, actually, suggesting that
we make a 7.5.1 release around Wed next week. It's getting really
tight for getting this in that release, unless it's critical.
You'll need to characterize what the user-visible problems are
that your patch is solving. If deemed critical and assessed as
completely safe, we can hold the release for a few more days.
