We used to have the rule that the packages are not supposed to be published 
before we announce them, but the enforcement of that got lost meanwhile.

I'm fine with doing another RC. we can either do one tomorrow and delay a week 
like usual or we do it next week and release earlier. I think most packagers 
should have their scripts ready to do a new RC build of packages within 2-3 
days at most. 

My preference is currently to do one early next week and release early.
