Yes, you should not pour the packagers over hundreds or thousands of users
before they're announced. It is fine to use them for testing/finding regressions
by circulating it within a small group of people that you know know and that
will help with debugging possible packaging issues vs upstream bugs.

Well, so far there haven't been that many commits in the 4.3 branch, where
weekly snapshots don't make sense yet.
I suggest to do a RC2 on Tuesday (assuming that there is internet available
during the KDE e.V. general assembly) and release them within a day or two.
