New branch and feature freeze for Lucene 9.5.0

Branch branch_9_5 has been cut and versions updated to 9.6 on stable branch.

Please observe the normal rules:

* No new features may be committed to the branch.
* Documentation patches, build patches and serious bug fixes may be
committed to the branch. However, you should submit all patches you
want to commit as pull requests first to give others the chance to review
and possibly vote against them. Keep in mind that it is our
main intention to keep the branch as stable as possible.
* All patches that are intended for the branch should first be committed
to the unstable branch, merged into the stable branch, and then into
the current release branch.
* Normal unstable and stable branch development may continue as usual.
However, if you plan to commit a big change to the unstable branch
while the branch feature freeze is in effect, think twice: can't the
addition wait a couple more days? Merges of bug fixes into the branch
may become more difficult.
* Only Github issues with Milestone 9.5
and priority "Blocker" will delay a release candidate build.
