For us RC means that we think it is feature complete and
only well-documented bug fixes go into the tree at this
point. Also, it is a point where we would like early
adaptors to use it and report bugs/issues/etc.

The main change is a change in the commit process: Only
changes with a bugzilla entry and mandatory review goes in.

With best regards,
