I'm not really claiming anything, so much as pointing out the reality of
the situation.  Regardless of all the things we could do, we didn't.
And by "we" here, I mean basically everyone.  I didn't test it, I don't
think you tested it, I don't think QA tested it.  Or if anyone did test
it, it's working because I don't remember hearing otherwise.  Or if I
did hear otherwise, I've long since forgotten.

Oh this is fun.

We should do a better job of this in the future.  I'll talk to James
and/or Will about adding some sort of "pretend this is the final
release" testing to the schedule.  I'd like to make sure the bugzilla
thing works as advertised for final releases, too.

Do we really think the temptation of the rawhide button there is going
to be so great?
