The merge window is a software development process which is sometimes used by large projects.
The merge window is a period of time that occurs directly after the release of a new version of the software. During this time, lots of patches are merged and hence have a long time to get scrutinized and tested before the next release.
This causes a lot of work for the project maintainers who have to merge all the patches. The process may be split up with people who inspect, approve and merge the patches.
