And I also vaguely remember Fedora shipping with an important close to
release, relatively stable prerelease product and updating it to the
final release shortly after the release. Ahem... firefox 0.10.1 PR1
with release.... cough firefox 1.0 a good couple of weeks later :-) So
if its a decent update with a full stable release due about the same
time I fully agree shipping a release canditate with the final coming
shortly there after. BTW speaking of which what ever happened to a
thunderbird 1.0 release/update?
