I think it's OK to plan for more than one release candidate, it's quite en
vogue to do that currently (look at Linux for example). The point is that we
*would* like to see it bugfree by -rc1 of course (though we do expect people
to find bugs). Calling it another beta would not communicate clearly that we
really think we're getting close (to both, devs and testers).
Thanks for the input and checking the dates, though.

Unix is user-friendly. However, it isn't idiot friendly.
